Throw compromise out the window, Seattle! There’s no need to settle when you invest in a gently used Ford… especially one so specially tuned for performance as this 2010 Explorer Limited. The engine is souped up to the point that competitors just can’t, well, compete. Stick with us below as we serve up the details!
This 2010 Explorer Limited cranks everything up a notch when it comes to power. The lower trims of this model are outfitted with a very respectable 4.0L V6, but this variant supercharges the whole affair with a magnificent 4.6L V8 motor. It’s so ferocious that it wields a total of 292 HP and 315-lb.-ft. of torque—passing ability on the highways of Seattle, Renton, and Bellevue is astounding!
Examining the setup further will only deepen your appreciation of what the Big Blue Oval is bringing to the table here. The V8 engine is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission imbued with overdrive capability. The OD creates greater efficiency by reducing revolutions per minute (RPM) when traveling at a consistent speed (such as when using cruise control). As a result, you’ll achieve an average highway MPG of 20.
