2007 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)
We bought our 07 in 07 and have over 20k on the clock. It is an awesome road trip car and tows my 4k lb boat very well even with just the V6 (make sure to get 373 gears) we get 19-20 mpg in mixed driving. Bad weather is joke with the traction control and auto 4wd. I wish I had better mpg but it's a body on frame truck that ways 4000+ and has 373 gears, it's only going to do so well. All in all it does very well hauling, towing, and cruising, and I always enjoy driving it.
Towing talent, 4wd, traction control, MP3 jack, dual piston front brakes, storage compartments in cargo area (under floor)
Easier to remove oil and fuel filters, better mpg when not "working"
