The 2015 Ford Explorer is the SUV for the everyman/woman. You don’t have to be a car enthusiast to appreciate what this ride has to offer. It’s fast, fun, and sophisticated in its technology and convenience features—in short, there’s something for everyone inside of this well-rounded crossover.
You’ll never be lacking for power when driving this machine. Under the hood lies a spirited 3.5L V6 motor that takes its job seriously—it’s a workhorse that effortlessly creates 290 HP and 255-lb.-ft. of torque. The dreaded “pinch at the pump” shouldn’t be much of a factor here, either, as this car offers an average MPG of 20 city / 28 highway.
The 2015 Explorer XLT is certainly a stunner inside of the cabin, as well. If you need to load up before setting off, you’ll have no issue—the 50/50 split-bench third row makes achieving a total of 43.8 cubic feet of cargo room a cinch. The supple front seats are leather-clad and heated to keep you warm on cold days. Also, the LCD screen on the center stack and the four 12-volt power outlets are a nice touch.
