Just in time for the New Year, we’ve refreshed our inventory here at Sound Ford in Seattle! One of the latest superlative vehicles to join our lot is this 2012 Explorer XLT. It’s a rugged SUV that can take the trails with gusto while also providing ample safety for you and your passengers. It’s no wonder it’s a top consumer choice.
Let’s start with safety. The side mirrors don’t require hand adjustment. Instead, it’s easy to tweak their positioning on-the-fly and compensate for potential blind spots quickly thanks to their powered functionality. A switch in the interior lets you rearrange them effortlessly from within the cabin. As a bonus, they’re heated to ensure clarity even in cold temperatures. Additionally, inflatables are well represented in this Explorer. Front and rear head airbags are joined by curtain varieties in each of the three rows.
Performance is also wondrous. The four-wheel drive functionality of the 2012 Explorer XLT ensures you can take to the trails as surely as you can the pavement. And the engine is remarkable. The 3.5L V6 produces a healthy 290 HP and 255-lb.-ft. of torque.
