2006 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV (4.6L 8cyl 6A)


I have owned my 2006 Explorer for 2 months now. I was impressed from the first time I drove the car. I was amazed that a body on frame "truck" could be so quiet, smooth and effortless to drive. This rides better and is quieter that the Lexus SUVs I have tried. Yet there is plenty of power with a nice growl from the V8 when needed. I have had seven adults fit comfortable in it. Even the 6 foot guy in the 3rd row said it was surprisingly roomy. I was aware of the unusual door pulls before I looked at the car and despite my concerns I don't even notice them now. I have had no problems with the fit, finish and quality of the construction so far. This is by far the best SUV I have owned.

Best Features

V8 power with a 6 speed transmission. 3 rows of usable seats. Quite, smooth ride.

Worst Features

The audiophile stereo needs more midrange.
