It's not as versatile or roomy as some other large crossover SUVs, but the 2014 Ford Explorer is still a respectable pick in this class thanks to its high-end cabin and long list of advanced features.
- Upscale cabin
- Abundant high-tech features
- Comfortable ride
- Top crash test scores
- Fuel-efficient turbocharged four-cylinder engine
- Strong turbocharged V6.
- Less rear seat and cargo room than many rivals
- Feels bigger than it is behind the wheel.
