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


The 2011 Explorer took 51/2 months to arrive but so far, it was worth the wait. The interior is pure luxury and the exterior is upscale . The ride is totally unlike my 2001 Explorer-quieter, smoother and more stable. The My Ford Sync and My Touch systems take time on the road to master and I agree that the touch screen's graphics and text size are too small. The Navigation system is a bit crazy; it seems to want to take you off a direct route onto a business route as you pass small towns. We received good rebates from the dealer. Apparently Ford does not keep their dealers apprised of production/delivery info as my dealer could not explain the delay in delivery.

Best Features

Size,quiet and stable ride,cargo space(golf clubs no longer have to rest on wheel wells),and overall appearance and luxury .

Worst Features

Improve the text size on the touch screen and fine tune the Nav. system. Add 2-3" of driver leg room.
