For those of you that needs space, power and a pleasent ride, the Explorer is an excellent choice for the price. It's very fun to drive. Poor gas mileage in the city but good enough in highways considering the V8
Power, smooth ride, good stabilty in highways compare to my Toyota Land Cruiser. Excellent air conditioning system and safety features.
Arm rest design and doors open lift. Glove compartment to small. No place in the back to store objects, tools, etc. White leather to delicate. Limited 4WD capabilities (sometimes wheels spin when climbing). Door interior design.
