1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

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 news.

Best Features

V8 power, comfy seating position.

Worst Features

The AWD feature hurts fuel mileage, suggest making this switchable to RWD only for MPG and acceleration improvement.
