Sleekalicious :)By Douglas Roberts, Jan 30, 2013Like a thump of a stallion, this sleek lined beauty has finaly got its sting back.. With added horse power and great steering, coupled with its handsomely stylish front view, I am looking forward to pleasuring my fingers to its well huged leather wraped steering.. Such a maddern look of class and an appearance of hunger, ready to eat the streets. Not feeling the cockpit too much though as I feel it lacks the graping factor, with not enough cool lighting to show a little more value, I wished for a more delightful interior as such boasted by the edge.. Nontheless, its a far cry from its previous siblings and it promises to tantalize your driving appetite... wooosh!!! ...moreAttractive, better steering and handling, increased horse power and more technology..
Not enough lighting, cocpit too close to driver(not enough room for taller 6.2ft and over)Trim 2013 Ford Explorer FWD 4dr Limited

Designed for City not to ExploreBy Joe Mac, Mar 4, 2013With the design enhancement for space and comforts comes comes comprimises. - Sleak, quiet and handles well but with 6 inch clearance don't try and exploring or you will be dragging front valance and under gear even on a maintained gravel road. Waiting for first big snow storm to see if the lower valence is a good snow plow, one good snow plow ridge at the end of the driveway and I expect it to be gone - Lots of room for us big guys but seats are a bit small and hard to rest arms and hold on to the steering wheel - larger back door to make easy access to 3rd row seats, kids fold up the 2nd row and sit in the 3rd row on long drives but making the door bigger reduced the size of the rear side window which is blocked to the driver by the 2nd row head rests. This makes backing trailer around a bend difficult beyond the range of the mirrors. - Back up camera and sensors are great feature for parking but again just try to back up a trailer to the constant alarm. Can not figure to temporarily shut if off. - Sync and navigation work well but not great. I have an older cell phone that will connect but sync for hands free. Navigation maps are rough and dated, route to brother in law includes a ATV trail that has not been traveled by a SUV in 30 years, contacted navigation supplier and they did not know there system was in the 2013 and was no updates. I carry my Garmin for backup. - Drivers foot area now includes a left foot rest for comfort but since the custom winter mats fit around it, any snow or water on boots run down directly to the carpet and under the mats. - reflecdtion of the dash metallics on the exterior obsures visablity ...moreroomy, comfortable, good gas mileage, quiet, lots of get up and go
no clearance for off highway, no elbow rest within distance of steering wheel, low visiblilty for backing trailor and no off switch for alarmTrim 2013 Ford Explorer 4WD 4dr XLT
