Rides Like an SUV
By MattP on


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


I had read some previous reviews on the
site, and I feel they are somewhat
inacurate. This car is not a Grand
Cherokee or an Expedition, as reflected
by it's selling price. This is a 2
door SUV with a strong engine,
extremely capable transmission, and the
ride of a SUV. I don't think Ford ever
designed this car to ride like a sedan.
Having had mine for seven months now, I
am very pleased with it's performance.

Best Features

Exterior styling, "Truck-like" ride, Fuel economy

Worst Features

There are some improvments I would make: available power passenger seat, auto 4WD transmission rather than 2WD/4WD High/4WD Low, and sturdier running boards.
