What about the EcoBoost 4-Cyl?
By 8aa2ym on

Vehicle

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

Review

I'm not sure why our FWD base EcoBoost 4-Cyl isn't on the model list... Where Edmunds got the 0-60 in 9.1 seconds also baffles me. Maybe they spun the tires like I sometimes do. Our Explorer has more get-up-and-go than a 2006 Mountaineer with a V8. We love our Explorer. It is nimble, quick, and loves the highway. We get about 30 MPG at 65 MPH, but only about 24 at 80 MPH. This is still much better than our old 1998 V6 Explorer managed (topped out at 18 MPG). We have never had any issues with all of the techy gadgets. (Perhaps I am more capable than the average person.)

Best Features

Great exterior lines. Sporty feel when driving. Passing power. Acceleration. All the wireless gadgets. (Bluetooth, Sirius radio, etc.)

Worst Features

Height adjustment on passenger-side seat.
