In the market for a recently-released SUV with a bevy of features? The 2012 Explorer XLT currently on our Sound Ford lot is calling your name. Consumers agree—this one’s tough to resist.
Worried about power? You can immediately forget your concerns. This vehicle rocks out with a 3.5L V6 engine that musters up 290 horses at 6,500 revolutions per minute (RPM). Torque is killer at 255 lb.-ft. at 4,000 RPM, and the drivetrain is a smooth, automatic six-speed. All this works together to produce up to 28 MPG highway. That’s fantastic for a 4WD machine!
There’s more to love. The standard additions on the XLT model delight. Rear passengers are treated to separate controls for both heating and air conditioning, allowing them to adjust their climate as they see fit. One-touch power windows are available throughout, and the electronically adjustable mirrors are heated to help out in inclement weather situations. Finally, you know your family is always secure as a result of the included 1st, 2nd, and 3rd-row side curtain airbags.
