A Few Quick Reviews on the 2017 Ford Explorer

The 2017 Ford Explorer is one of the most capable, spacious and versatile vehicles in the midsize sedan segment. Ever since it was first introduced to the market decades ago, the Ford Explorer has always seemed to have a little something extra behind its always bold grill and luxurious overall presence.

Starting at around $34,000, the 2017 Ford Explorer is no different. With three engines to choose from including a mighty 365-horsepower twin-turbo V6, the current-generation Explorer which was introduced two years ago has all the features and technologies you could ever want.

It’s no wonder that the experts love the 2017 Ford Explorer. Here are just a sample of the latest reviews on the 2017 Ford Explorer.

The Ford Explorer started life as a rough and ready body-on-frame, Ranger-based rig with some off-road potential. Today, it’s a soft-roader that keys on comfort rather than tackling something more challenging than a gnarly cottage access road. The transformation means it is now a viable alternative to a minivan.

This fifth-generation, Taurus-based unitized-body now arrives with three rows of seating. The first two rows live up to expectations with lots of comfort and space — the third row is like most in the segment, meaning tight and very much for the kids. There’s no issue with the available cargo space; with all rows up it offers 595 litres, or lower the power third row for 1,243L. With all rows folded there’s 2,314L of space and a reasonably flat floor.

Up front, the Explorer is pleasantly crafted, with decent materials and all the modern conveniences; the Limited brings leather upholstery, heated/cooled front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, power tilt-and-telescope steering wheel, power pedal adjustment, a 12-speaker Sony sound system and Ford’s Sync 3 with an eight-inch touchscreen. The latter, when compared to previous versions, is faster, the clarity is better and it is intuitive, so accessing all functions is a simple task – Driving.ca


The 2017 Ford Explorer enters the new model year largely unchanged after a light overhaul last year with smoother bodywork, improved interior features, enhanced sound deadening, and a new mid-range engine option that's greatly improved over previous generations.

The Explorer remains a decidedly family-focused seven-seat crossover and it is hugely popular with consumers. – The Car Connection
