The Ford Explorer line has always placed a premium on performance, and the 2010 XLT model is no different. It excels thanks to a powerful motor and excellent stability and control, enabling you to deftly whip around corners throughout Seattle, Renton, and Bellevue. Rugged, smart and capable, it remains a favorite consumer choice.
The Explorer XLT’s 4.0L V6 is a champ. It delivers impressive results—specifically, 210 HP and 254-lb.-ft. of torque. If you need to tow a small boat or other recreational vehicle or trailer, you can take heart, as this Ford can easily manage to haul up to 3,500 pounds. And you’ll also be relieved to know that this machine receives a generous 20 MPG average highway rating.
Safety and performance meet when you consider Ford’s AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control functionality. It operates to reduce the chance of dangerous wheel spin. The system works by utilizing the computer and various sensors to detect how the tires are operating on a second-to-second basis. Whenever there’s a loss of traction, it automatically brakes to compensate.
