2017 Ford Explorer Expert Rundown

Looking for a great three-row crossover SUV with outstanding quietness and quality cabin trimmings? The 2017 Ford Explorer might be a good fit. Here's a quick rundown of what we like, what we don't and the bottom line from the Edmunds editors.


MARK TAKAHASHI: I'm Edmunds editor Mark Takahashi. And here's your Expert Rundown of the 2017 Ford Explorer. The Ford Explorer has a ton of trim levels from basic to luxurious. We like the Sport model, in particular, because it's a little easier to drive, while other models feel a bit heavy and overly soft. You get three different engine choices, our favorite being the caboose V6, though fuel economy could be better. Unlike most SUVs in this class, you can have all three rows filled with passengers and still have plenty of room for cargo. Second row, you can get either a bench or captain's chairs. And to add a little convenience, they can be optioned with power folding, so that you don't really have to keep crawling back and forth to get stuff in. Here's the bottom line on the Ford Explorer. We like its space. We like the Sport trim and the V6. It competes well against the Dodge Durango, GMC Acadia, and Honda Pilot.
