Not a good car for babies
By twins10 on


2013 Ford Explorer 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Ford Xlt v6 with leather and bench seat.
Wife bought car while pregnant but before we had car seats.
We had twins, so two car seats britax. With car seats install driver and passenger knees are against the dash. I am 6 ft, wife is 5 ft 10 in. Traded with mother-in-law for her 2013 gmc Acadia.
Nice exterior lots of good comments
Interior looks nice
Sync system voice recognition is slow (as compared to my Hyundai genesis coupe)
Leg room is poor with car seats
Drive is more responsive a better than the Acadia

Best Features

Nice exterior Heated leather seats Wife likes dual moonroof And lift gate Navigation is nice better than my Hyundai once it figures where we are going Bluetooth Backup camera Blind spot side mirrors

Worst Features

More leg room for rear seat or allow it to slide back and forth or make third row optional and give more leg room. Speed up the sync system. Honest salesmen who will tell your wife that most rear facing car seats will not fit unless you move the front seat completely forward which is not an option or most people (probably too much to ask)
