Sure, the 2005 Ford Explorer Limited is sharp looking with a generous application of chrome on the exterior, but how does it drive? Exceptionally well, actually, which is why it remains a favorite of consumers even years later. Below, we’ll discuss all the perks of the behind-the-wheel experience.
As this is the Limited trim, you’ll be seated on supple leather no matter where you settle within the interior. Both front passengers may adjust air conditioning settings to their specifications as a result of the included dual-zone automatic climate control. Also, cushions in the fore of the cabin are heated for those dead-of-winter night excursions (or in case you live in a less temperate northern state).
So, you know you’ll be comfortable while driving, but how will the Explorer Limited react to your inputs? Fortunately, we can say with no reservation that when you ask for power, you get it with this SUV. The standard V6 is all most will need, as it’s a zippy 4.0L engine with 210 HP. However, those that want that little something extra have the option of a 4.6L V8 sporting 239 horses. This motor variant also provides towing capacity up to 3,400 lbs.
