Great all around visibility. Smooth ride at all speeds. Mileage is mid-range but true to advertised mpg. Controls are easy to reach while maintaining attention to the road. Previously owned 2002 Explorer and this has a smoother ride.
The AdvanceTrac stability control system has been improved with a new Roll Stability Control system and is now standard on all Mountaineers. A newly available Designer Series package includes suede interior trim, scuff plates and 17-inch chrome wheels. The roof rack has been redesigned, and now includes raised side rails. The 40/20/40-split second-row seat now has reclining outboard seats, and an eight-way power driver seat is available.
