We bought our 1994 Explorer from my wife's uncle and it has been outstanding. I keep thinking I should replace it with a new model but this one is so good I just can't bring myself to do it. My son loves driving it to college so who knows maybe in another year or so we will replace it...even though I doubt we would really need to do so.
4X4 features are easy to use.
More horsepower...the new ones have it so Ford listened on this point.
