1997 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD


I have had this truck for six years and
plan to keep it for at least four
more. It's a lot of fun to drive--
gotta love the 5.0 liter V-8 engine. I
think a few folks are surprized when I
leave them in the dust. Overall this
is an excellent vehicle. It drives
exceptionally well for a truck (on
Michelin tires). It can carry a heavy
load with ease.

Best Features

V-8 Power and acceleration. Great all round visibility for driving (very small blind spots). FUN!

Worst Features

Ideally smoother suspension (but it is a truck).
