Power; convenience; utility. Ford’s Explorer has it all. The mid-size crossover brings so much to the table that it’s hard to sum it all up in a single post, but we’ll do our best below by zeroing in on the incredible 2015 XLT trim.
This SUV is highly accommodating. Firstly, the 50/50 split-bench third row folds down in a cinch to open up additional cargo room whenever you don’t have rear passengers. It affords a total of 43.8 cubic feet to store gear in the back. However, when you are traveling with many occupants, inclusions such as the four 12-volt power outlets cater to everyone’s needs by enabling the simultaneous charging of smart devices. Also, the front leather seats are heated and the center stack’s color LCD screen beautifully displays vehicle details.
The 2015 Explorer XLT offers stunning performance, too. Its 3.5L V6 engine sends you rocketing down the streets of Seattle with its 290 horses and 255-lb.-ft. of torque. And don’t sweat worrying over running low on gas. You’ll be traveling uninterrupted for quite a long time thanks to the average MPG of 20 city / 28 highway.
