V8 (5.0 LITRE) KICKS BUT!!

1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD

Review

I've had my V8 Explorer AWD XLT for over 6 years and driven it on the beach and in Snow storms. It's traction in all terrian is excellent (which gives the driver some nice peace of mind). I had 1992 V6 Explorer before this one and the V6 didin't cut it (too underpowered). The 92 I had got totalled when I got t-boned by a teenager in a Volvo in 1997. The truck rolled onto it's roof and the only injury I suffered was a dislocated shoulder. That's whay I went out and bought my 97 Explorer. GOOD, DEPENDABLE SUV!!

Favorite Features

Nice Interior Layout. GREAT Traction in whatever terrain you're driving in. 5.0 Litre (V8) provides just the right amount of power and decent gas mileage.

Suggested Improvements

Lower the sticker price (so I can afford a 2004 model..Ha..Ha.)
