Epic performance and superior safety await you when you choose to invest in the 2012 Explorer XLT. Ford has really outdone themselves with this model and we think you’ll agree once you give it a spin.
As you crank the engine of the 2012 Ford Explorer XLT, you’ll hear a throaty growl that’s indicative of what you’re in store for. The 3.5L V6 engine is a heavyweight, offering a one-two punch of 290 HP and 255-lb.-ft. of torque. You’ll be speeding down the streets of Seattle, Renton, and Bellevue, and if you choose to go off-road, the four-wheel drive makes for an easy transition.
You’ll never have to fret over the security of your passengers in this Explorer, either. Front and rear head and side-curtain airbags are aplenty, and the powered and heated exterior mirrors make quick adjustments to mitigate visibility challenges and/or blind spots a simple affair. As a result of this, the IIHS has awarded the car its “Top Safety Pick,” putting it in the upper echelon of vehicles the body has tested.
