Are you a fan of the “classic” looking Ford Explorers with the boxier, rugged SUV aesthetic? Many consider it a timeless design, and we’re pleased to announce that we now have a 2005 XLT variant on our Sound Ford lot here in Seattle. With this one, you’re receiving great driving performance and a healthy smattering of comfort-based inclusions.
Start your engines! You’ll be prepared to dash about Seattle and all surrounding areas thanks to this motor. The 4.0L V6 stands tall with its 210 HP and 254 lb.-ft. of torque, and operation is easy due to the five-speed automatic transmission with overdrive. Your pocketbook won’t be getting significantly lighter as you cruise around, either. “Pinch at the pump” is minimized through the 21 highway MPG rating.
Although this may be an earlier model of the Explorer, there’s still much convenience to be had. A power driver’s seat enables swift and simple adjustments. The side mirrors are also electronic and fold to help when you need to squeeze through tight spaces. Also, lumbar support in the front combats the threat of a stiff back after a long journey.
