2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test


2012 Ford Explorer EcoBoost: Worth the Wait?

December 02, 2011

Twice recently 2011 Explorer owners asked me about our 2012 Explorer EcoBoost. Since the 2.0-liter, turbocharged four-cylinder engine was added as an option for 2012, their 2011 Explorers have the standard V6.

Should they have waited, both wanted to know?

While not wanting to encourage a case of buyer's remorse, I personally think it was worth the wait and the extra cash.

What would you say?
