2012 Ford Explorer XLT EcoBoost: Rear Legroom Makes the Cut

October 07, 2011


We recently published a list showing the 10 crossovers and SUVs with the most rear legroom. The Ford Explorer made the cut, with 39.8 inches available for passengers who want to stretch out those lower limbs in the second row. Crossovers like the Lincoln MKT, the Infiniti QX56 and the Chevrolet Equinox also made the list.

Is rear legroom something that you place priority on when shopping for a crossover?
