I have a 2012 BMW and I find myself driving the Explorer more and more. Its quick, big enough for the kids and all of our stuff, great sound system, etc.
I like the way it drives, could be a bit smoother on the bumps but hey what ever.
Its heavy on the gas...Thought it would be closer to the 22 mpg but its like 18 highway, 16 on average between street and highway. Also I wish ford would come out with a more luxurious version . One that would get rid of the hard plastic and replace it with finer materials.
