So, you’re looking to refresh what you have parked in your garage but you’re not prepared to splurge on a brand new vehicle. No problem—let us introduce you to the 2011 Ford Explorer, a mighty SUV that’s remained highly capable these past few years thanks to stellar performance and spaciousness. Consumers are still wild about it!
The 2011 Ford Explorer comes stocked with a ferocious 3.5L V6 motor and a six-speed automatic transmission. The former equips the car with 290 horses and 255-lb.-ft. of torque while the latter ensures a smooth ride devoid of the jerkiness associated with stick shifting. Mileage is similarly spectacular. You’ll be working with an EPA-estimated average MPG of 25 highway / 17 city.
This SUV is also designed and equipped to cater to your pursuits of adventure. If you need to pack up luggage for your big trip, the 2011 Explorer has you covered—21 cubic feet of space exist with the seats all up, but when you fold the rows down you’ll open up a cavernous 80.7 cubic feet of storage. And yes, Ford understands that sometimes you need to tow a trailer or other equipment outside of Seattle. That’s why this ride can haul up to 5,000 pounds.
