Vehicle Limited 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl 6A)
Review I am so excited to write a review about my new car. While I have only had this vehicle for less than a week. I am thoroughly impressed. I have 'NEVER' owned a Ford. I did not buy top of the line and I have not purchased a new vehicle in 20+ years. I always buy used. I was looking at three SUVs (4 Runner, Honda Pilot and Ford Explorer) and I found the features, price offering, technology, ford incentives excellent and the warranty was one of the reasons I decided to buy this. I have a 20 yr/200k mile powertrain warranty (that is anything that touches oil). I was initially hesitant about considering the inline 4 cylinder engine with ecoboost. I test drove it and loved it; I went home to research the I4 w/ecoboost needless to say I was not disappointed. I was surprisingly impressed with the gas mileage and the 310 horsepower. The 6 cylinder is 255 horsepower. I am getting bout 20/mpg in the city. WHAT!!! Do keep in mind I rented an explorer to drive from Jacksonville to Tallahassee in a bad storm, this vehicle handled very well. My explorer is Blue Jeans Metallic with tan leather, sync, navigation, touchscreen technology, halo lights, foot activated lift gate, convenient dash controls, auto start is great, auto wipers, great steering controls and so much more! The vehicle is well equipped, rides nicely, grabs the road and the cabin is super quiet compared to my 2012 Honda Odyssey. My husband is not into SUVs but he was impressed when he drove it, he said it feels more like a luxury car. The mahoney sticker was about $40.5k, after rebates the vehicle was $33,760. The final thing that ultimately sealed the deal for me was the 20yr/200K mile warranty. FORD-I'm impressed!!!!!
