2017 Ford Explorer SUV XLT 4dr SUV (3.5L 6cyl 6A)


Review

I bought a 2017 Ford Explorer XLT in November 2017 and by January 2018 the paint started chipping on the top. My vehicle was in the shop for over a week to be painted. Noticed a couple of days ago driver side door doesnt connect to the vehicle correctly and today my plastic looking trim around the door is all coming loose. Absolutley disappointed with this vehicle. Its a shame you pay this much money for a vehicle and its falling apart. Going back to the dealership tomorrow for repairs again. I barely have 7000 miles on it. Big problem.

2017 Ford Explorer SUV Sport 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Great drive for a 4x4 this size, super comfortable in front and in back. Reliability and value is only from the initial buyers perspective. Compared to other 4x4's it is great value for money.

2017 Ford Explorer SUV Limited 4dr SUV AWD (2.3L 4cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Nice solid suspension. Rough surfaces are smoothed out. Perfect height for getting in and out of. No doubt a very sharp looking and handling SUV. I guess that's why they are seen everywhere in every trim level.

Review

Had a 2015 Sport, super trade in for a 2017 Sport. What a difference in just two years. Ride, handling, mileage and safety features a noticeable improvement. Thought active cruise and collision avoidance where just gimmicks. Now they are things I got to have in any other auto I buy. Long trips much more relaxing and convinced a near accident wasn't only because of the collision avoidance system did its job. Had initial problems with the on board computer at delivery, navigation, sirius, phone would not hold settings. New one installed and no problems since. Only thing I wish they kept from the 2105 would be the front seat length. Little more support on long trips. Twin tubo's, can you say fun? Nice truck, good value, and got 24.5 Mpg on last road trip. In town, averages 21. No regrets!

2017 Ford Explorer SUV Platinum 4dr SUV AWD (3.5L 6cyl Turbo 6A)


Review

Explorer has been flawless to date. No warranty claims. Have consistently used regular fuel. OEM tires were a disappointment; only got 25,000 miles. Wish there was more room for left foot while driving (I am 6'4'') and that it had full automatic braking for collision avoidance. Mileage combined is a bit disappointing but the it has terrific acceleration from the 365 hp engine. Interior leather is very well done and it has performed well in snow. Very versatile.
