One of the most loved family-style SUVs in America is the 2015 Ford Explorer Limited. Over the years it has cultivated a reputation for being versatile and reliable, making it a great option for people with busy lifestyles. This year’s updated model boasts advanced electronic features and a stylish interior design.
Powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Explorer generates 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. Equipped with a six-speed automatic transmission and 4WD, it gets a respectable 19 mpg combined (17 city/23 highway).

The Limited trim level includes 20-inch wheels and body-colored door handles for a sleek exterior look. The cabin boasts leather upholstery with suede inserts, floor mats, and heated/cooled seats for comfort in any season. You can listen to HD radio through the 12-speaker Sony sound system.
