Second Explorer we have owned, first was a 2004 Explorer Police edition ( police engine, was retired from a small town P.D. fleet). Was so Impressed with first one, had to get a second one. This one isn't a police package, but I don't mind one bit. Perfect vehicle for my small family, has a plug in the back for my daughter (4 yrs old) to plug in her portable DVD player, plus the air vents she don't have to wait for the heat/air.Took 3 trips to Texas-Pa in the 04,(1735 miles one way) and was a great ride. This one is super smooth, rides great on highway, fuel mileage goes over 19 mpg longer we drive on highway, so might make it over 22 by Texas. lots of room in the back for all my wife's luggage.
Adjustable gas/brake pedals, air vents& power plug in back seat area, super smooth ride, sleek front and rear design, the rear cargo area has TONS of room. MPG go up longer you stay on highway with cruise control on. super quiet! Have to check RPM gauge at stop lights to make sure its even on
Improve the MPG a little more since it's such a big tank, maybe make the drink holders in front area a little deeper.
