2006 Ford Explorer XLS 4dr SUV (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


Bought one of the last 2006's on the lot. Got $6,400 off sticker and 1.9% apr for 72 months. This car has impressed me more than any other vehicle I have owned. Thoughtful design, awesome powertrain, plush interior and it looks great in black! Traded in an '03 Mazda Tribute for this and got about the same payment, what a deal! The dealer also threw in a 7 year/70,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty and lifetime oil changes. Could not have been more pleased with the entire experience and the vehicle.

Best Features

Exterior design: understated yet classy, great interior, and I LIKE the interior door pulls! Interior does not look like a base-model, hides the price quite well!

Worst Features

Wish running boards were standard - hate seeing the chassis under the truck. Oh well, should be easy to add aftermarket.
