2006 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.6L 8cyl 6A)
I had a 2004 Explorer (V8) which I liked a lot. Power, comfort and reliability. But the new 2006 is even better. New v8 engine is terrific! Much improved interior, very quiet. Handling is excellent and fuel economy is better than the 2004 (new V8 engine). Perfect vehicle used for hunting, fishing, huge cargo room, as well as using for business and clients. Two vehicles in one - perfect for my lifestyle! Like having a truck and a luxury car.
Powerful engine, comfortable luxury ride, space.
2006 interior has been greatly improved, still could use more luxury.
