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


I really enjoy driving the Explorer Sport. To me the Explorer Sport is a comfortable, quick, and agile truck. After 10 years of driving various trucks, and after renting numerous mini-utes, I purchased the right vehicle. Trucklike yes, but solid feeling with a quick smooth engine/tranny combo. Yes, maybe a little harsh through the front end on bumps, and gas mileage could be better. I find the steering accurate, body lean is far less than most other trucks and utes. (Less jiggly than the V6 Escape I had for 5 Days)

Best Features

Transmission and engine combo superb. I find the handling tight. Traction lock axle. side impact door beams. Keyless entry etc. Good sounding Engine.

Worst Features

Smoother front end, better gas mileage but not at expense of engine/tranny combo.
