Check out this gently-used 2015 Ford Explorer we recently got in. This SUV is a superb example of what a tough, work focused vehicle should be. Exceptional towing, acceleration and torque will help you get the job done. At home in the country and in the city, this 2015 4WD Ford Explorer XLT has been wonderfully refined to handle any occasion. Smooth steering, superior acceleration and a supple ride are just a few of its qualities. The Explorer XLT is well maintained and has just 34,001mi. This low amount of miles makes this vehicle incomparable to the competition. More information about the 2015 Ford Explorer: The Ford Explorer has been rated one of the safest utility vehicles at any size or price; it's the first vehicle in the world to offer rear inflatable seatbelts. Curve control--a more advanced version of electronic stability control--is also a Ford exclusive. Ford's MyKey system helps parents reel in teen drivers. The Explorer also stands out for being one of the greenest choices available. Ford claims best-in-class gas mileage for non-hybrids and notes that the Explorer EcoBoost will go 20 percent farther on a gallon of gas than the Honda Pilot. Interesting features of this model are Quiet interior, good value, excellent ride quality, world-class safety features, and EcoBoost engine provides good mileage
The Explorer is offered in base, XLT and Limited models, but no matter the model, it comes with three well-designed rows of seating and room for up to seven (the second row comes with two bucket seats for adults). While the third row is kid-sized, it's easier to fold than those on just about any other model--thanks to the simple, single-button power-folding system. Parents will also note that LATCH fasteners for child seats are included in the second-row outboard positions. Both the second and third rows flip forward, there's a cavernous 81 cubic feet of cargo space.
With the EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine, fuel economy is one of the best in this class: 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway. There is one caveat for the EcoBoost engine--it's only available with front-wheel drive, so any shoppers looking for the all-weather security of 4-wheel drive will need to step up to the V6. The larger engine performs admirably however, with EPA ratings of 17 mpg city and 25 mpg highway.
The 4-wheel drive system in the Explorer is designed with the urban driving done by most Explorer owners in mind, and it includes a Terrain Management system that cleverly recalibrates the system for snow, sand or mud when needed. With 4-wheel drive, there's also Hill Descent Control, to help maintain composure on steep, slippery slopes.
Standard equipment on the Explorer is more extensive than what's found in most mainstream-brand vehicles. Cruise control, a media hub system, four 12-volt powerpoints, capless fuel-filling and the MyKey control/monitoring feature are all standard on the base model, while optional or standard models on the upper XLT or Limited trims include dual-zone climate control; remote start; power-folding, heated side-view mirrors; reverse sensing; ambient lighting, adjustable pedals, a rearview camera system, push-button start and a 110-volt AC outlet.
MyFord Touch, a touch-screen-based interface that combines a host of vehicle, information and entertainment functions in an interface that appears a bit like that of iPads or other tablet computers. The system works together with Ford's Sync interface to interact seamlessly--and with voice commands--with media players, smartphones and music on USB sticks.
All Explorers include both Roll Stability Control and Curve Control sophisticated stability control systems. Safety Canopy side-curtain airbags also cover all three rows and an SOS Post-Crash System helps alert authorities if the airbags deploy. Safety-related tech features on the Explorer include adaptive cruise control with a collision warning system that includes brake support as well as a Blind Spot Information System with cross-traffic alert.
