2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test

2012 Ford Explorer: Feel Good Wheel

April 24, 2012

ford-explorer-steering-whee.jpg I sit in traffic. A lot. And this morning as I was trying not to come unglued at the slow moving parade of cars trapped alongside me on the freeway, I found myself gripping and releasing our Ford Explorer's steering wheel in an attempt to release some frustration.

A nice wheel, I thought. Good shape and heft, supple, yet firm leather, and flawless detail stitching.

Reflecting on the steering wheel took my mind off the traffic for all of 60 seconds. But I'll continue to appreciate the wheel's quality everytime I drive the Explorer.
