You don’t necessarily need to own the latest Ford to experience the refinement and utility of a top-notch automobile. Case in point: the 2009 Explorer Eddie Bauer. This edition of the sensationally celebrated mid-size crossover delivers ample cargo space and smart convenience features that still have consumers raving.
Stretch out your legs and wiggle your toes, Seattle! You’ll find that the wonderful amount of room within the 2009 Explorer’s cabin is the gift that keeps on giving. Need to expand your storage options for a run to the hardware and lumber store? No sweat. The 50-50 split-bench setup enables you to fold down the back seats for increased space. The push of a single button powers the rear row down, opening up a total of 85.8 cubic feet for cargo. And when you’re loading up, a separate switch automatically opens and closes the hatch.
There are additional refinements on this SUV that make your journeys more comfortable. The front cushions are heated to keep your bottom warm at all times, while the driver’s seat is 10-way power adjustable so that you can find your sweet spot for longer trips. Lumbar support cradles your lower back—and don’t forget the auto-dimming rearview mirror, which automatically dims itself to mitigate pesky glare from other motorists’ headlamps.
