Great SUV--if a little quirky
By Sammybosox on


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


Traded in a 2002 4Runner to get the new Explorer. Never looked back. Great interior space--my dogs love it-- and the Audiophile sound system is better than anything I've heard from the factory. Ride and handling is great, almost no body lean or roll during cornering and power is outstanding. Got the V8, it's worth the extra money and the gas. Interior is a little strange looking; the dash is kind of lumpy and the materials look cheaper than they probably are. But fit and finish seem good, and it's super quiet. Would recommend the Explorer to anyone looking for a new SUV--and the dealership has been awesome.

Best Features

Audiophile sound system, 4.6L V8., trip computer, adjustable pedals, Roll Stability Control

Worst Features

Dash is a little funky looking. Different colors and textures would probably help. Interior door handles are a little hard to get used to.
