The 2010 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer is an SUV offering superior performance and luxury trappings that combine for an impressive overall package. In fact, consumers have spoken out favorably, awarding the vehicle four out of five stars.
It begins with ample power. While the 2010 Explorer has an available 4.0L V6 that cranks out 210 HP, things ramp up significantly when owners opt for the wildly capable 4.6L V8 engine. This motor supercharges Ford’s creation with 292 horses running at 5,750 revolutions per minute (RPM), as well as 315 lb.-ft. of torque at 4,000 RPM. When joined to the intuitive six-speed automatic transmission, this setup manages 21 MPG highway in the two-wheel drive variant and 19 MPG for the 4WD model.
Comfort is afforded in this Explorer edition, too. The interior of the cabin provides both driver and passenger lumbar support, and all seats offer leather trim. Cushions throughout the front are heated, keeping owners toasty even during winter excursions through Seattle, Bellevue, and Renton. Also, the exterior features a pleasant dose of panache via the 17-inch painted aluminum wheels.
