Great SUV with easy modifications
By mustang133 on


2001 Ford Explorer Sport 4WD 2dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5M)


My 3rd Explorer Sport. Lowered by 1.5" -
front adjustable, rear blocks,
Bilstein shocks and 275/60-17 tires
improve handling 100%. 2.5" Flowmaster
exhaust, K&N air filter and cool air
intake and performance chip (ECU)
increases HP to 250+ with 21-22 miles
per gallon highway. These changes made
the Explorer Sport an exceptional truck
in handling and driveability, ride
comfort and performance (faster than
the V-8 Explorer). I've driven it to
Florida and back to New York with 3
passengers and loaded, including a roof
carrier. I'd much rather drive the
Sport than my V-8 Crown Victoria on
long trips now. Too bad, they stopped
making it. Great truck.

Best Features

Engine is outstanding, Pioneer CD stereo system with sub-woofer, interior room and comfort as compared to other same sized SUVs, good looking exterior

Worst Features

Lowered by 1-2 inches, better shocks, less restrictive exhaust, shifter located in center console and dress up the interior dash ect.
