2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test

2012 Ford Explorer: Packed House

July 23, 2012


My sister and her family are in town visiting from Michigan, which means the obligatory trip to Disneyland. Her young boys both require child safety seats, so seating in the seven-passenger Ford Explorer is tight for the rest of us.

Just ask my daughter, who is relegated to the third row with Uncle Jason...


Aunt Jill rides up front with me. She's smart enough to feign carsickness, even before I start the engine.
