The SUV that has it all.
By Brad on


2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer 4dr SUV 4WD (4.0L 6cyl 5A)


This is my fourth Explorer and they just keep getting better! The features, versatility and the price can't be beat. The V-6 fuel ecomomy isn't great but, I get the same MPG that I got with my Acura MDX and I don't have to run premium fuel. The Sirius radio and Sync system are great. Towing two SEA- Doo's GTX's takes a little effort, but the vehicles handles and stops well. The third row seats are great for kids under twelve and I love the power up and down feature. The second row seats recline but they do take a little effort to move up and out so people can get into the third row.

Best Features

Sync, Sirius, Class 3/4 trailer hitch set-up with two different types of electrical plug ins, Power fold 3rd row seats. Rear air conditioning and heating controls, Reverse sensing.

Worst Features

Smaller headrests in the 2nd row seat. When they are up it creates a blind spot behind the driver.
