'01 Explorer XLT 4WD--my review
By billapex on
Vehicle2001 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
ReviewMy '01 Explorer has the Sport Package,
which I think makes the truck look nice
and beefy. The 4.0 liter V6 is pretty
although with the towing package's 4.10
rear gears, mileage isn't spectacular.
The 5-speed automatic does compensate
well, though. I've towed 5,500lb.
worth of 23' enclosed trailer with a
Dodge Viper inside, and it did
admirably well for a V6.
Interior has held up well except for a
smally squeak in the center console's
CD changer area.
We only had one recall, and that was
for the driver's side seat mechanism.
I've been impressed with the Explorer
enough to purchase it when it came off
Best FeaturesFeatures for the money. Power. Visibility. Safety (mine has side airbags). Towing ability. Beefy looks with Sport Package. 4-wheeling ability. CD changer in center console.
Worst FeaturesA few squeaks. Weird-feeling grained steering wheel (I switched mine out for leather). I wish mine had the Premium sound system.
