Good value for the money

ReviewWent from an '07 4Runner to the Explorer. Really love the Sync system and the softer ride. Seems to be a really solid vehicle and very capable. "Classy" seems to be a word that is very appropriate for the Explorer, expecially given the re- design of the front end. Given that the V-6 gets similar mileage to the V-8, wish I would have gone with the V-8 now for the extra power. Would also suggest going with the upgraded stereo system as the standard unit is very mediocre. However, I feel the Explorer is a very good value for the money.
Best FeaturesSync System is awesome! Interior is very comfortable and puts you up in the air like an SUV should. Overall ride is also very good for a truck- based SUV. Really love the look of the 18" chrome wheels. Safety features aren't sexy, but are appreciated. Did I mention how cool the Sync System is?
Worst FeaturesA better base-level stereo and a grab handle on the driver's side "A" pillar would be welcome improvements. The tilt wheel is just awful. Think hard about whether you can live with the awkwardness of the under-the-column lever. Larger rubber on the nice wheels would improve the looks and function.
