Model: XLT AWD V8. If contemplating the
purchase of an Explorer, don't even
consider the pathetic 6 cylinder
versions! A real truck has a V8 engine,
period end of it. This truck has been a
reliable cruiser, nothing to write home
about but sometimes no news is good
V8 power, comfy seating position.
The AWD feature hurts fuel mileage,
suggest making this switchable to RWD
only for MPG and acceleration
