2012 Ford Explorer Long Term Road Test

2012 Ford Explorer XLT EcoBoost: Pushin' It

February 16, 2012


We have a rule around here: Don't park a car with less than a quarter tank of fuel. It's an editorial obligation, but it's also common courtesy. Sometimes, we get shorted. When it happens to me, I feel it's my responsibility to see just how far I can push it.

I've never actually found out. I like to think this is skill I was born with.

The Explorer, by the way, made it 4.9 more miles before intuition told me to stop.
