Ford Explorer is the family vehicle for me!
I enjoy the heated and cooled seats as well as the heated steering wheel. The back seats also have heated seats. The hands free, (put your foot under the bumper) open the hatch is nice when you have your hands full. The ride is very smooth. It has a smaller gas tank that I what I would like so I feel that I fill up more often however, I do get excellent gas mileage in town and on the interstate. I am still trying to learn the voice activated commands. They are simple but when you do not use them everyday, you forget. I like the sunroof and having the moonroof is an added bonus. I do have the third row seat in the back. You fill a button and it will automatically fold itself upright into the proper sitting position or it will fold itself to automatically be able to haul whatever you need. There is plenty of legroom in front, back, and very back if you use that space. I like all of the controls being on the steering wheel as well as a touch screen. My family enjoys the "Sirius" subscription to a large variety of music and news channels. The sound system is a Sony and sounds wonderful. You can also play through Bluetooth from your smartphones playlist if you would like. There are USB and standard outlets in the front and back seat of the vehicle which is an added bonus. We bought this vehicle used however, this is our 3rd Ford Explorer that we have owned. We feel that they hold their retail value and give us the most "bang for our buck". I always look forward to see what new features Ford comes out with. I average 8, 000 miles per year on my vehicle so with that being said, a vehicle last me a very long time. Ford has always held up to our standards!
