2011 Ford Explorer XLT 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


We traded in a GMC Yukon XL for a new Explorer XLT.
This SUV has better seats, ride and handling.
There is a bit more road noise on some surfaces.
It is surprisingly good in the snow/ice.
Especially given the all season type tires.
We have had a few issues with the Sync/My Touch system, but all have resolved with the software upgrades.
The engine is good, with fairly good power but you have to rev it to get to the powerband, which seems to be the case with many of the new V-6s these days.
Gas mileage is very good for a AWD vehicle.
Just returned from a 1500 mile trip and averaged 24 mpg with mostly interstate at 70 mph.
Back seats are comfortable.

Best Features

Front seat comfort, AWD system.

Worst Features

More low end torque. Fix bugs in Sync system
