2017 ford explorer the perfect vehicle.

I love my ford explorer. It's the first vehicle I have owned that is large and comfortable. Mine is a base model but it is the perfect car for me. The cargo area is big enough to transport almost anything. I love the body style. It has a sleek sporty look but is very functional. I currently get 26.3 miles per gallon of gas which I think is exceptionally good for such a large comfortable vehicle. . It is easy to fold down the back seats to use the cargo area. I love that if needed there are two extra seats in the far back. So far I have never use the back seats but it is very simple to open them. . This vehicle has an amazing turn radius. It is so easy to make a u-turn in a busy intersection. Every other car I have had I always worried I will not be able to make a u-turn in time to keep from being hit. Now I am always confident I will be able to make the turn without causing an accident . The only negative attribute of the ford explorer is a blind spot. When trying to merge onto the interstate it is very difficult to see if is clear to merge. I am sure if you use the mirrors correctly you wouldn't have a problem. . Overall I think the 2017 ford explorer base model is an excellent vehicle. In fact, my husband's last three vehicles have been ford explorers. He is almost ready at 280,000 miles on his 2014 explorer, to purchase his next one. I highly recommend the ford explorer.

Great on gas, comfortable, and spacious vehicle

The 400 miles to a tank of gas is one of the best parts considering I drive at least an hour to get to work each day. We have a family of 5 so the spacious interior is also great. Back seats are easy to fold up and down as needed, kids can also do this pretty well which is helpful from time to time. Seats are comfortable. My husband has a bad back and mine acts up from time to time. The seats are cushioned well to where we don't mind taking road trips from time to time and worrying that backs are going to be sore 30 min into the drive. I'm a warm natured person so the car heats up great for me especially love those heated seats and steering wheel. Great in the winter! It also gets up to speed pretty quickly which is great for getting onto the highways and changing lanes. Also has cruise control another feature I had to have - keeps me from those lead foot speeding tickets and makes for a much more relaxing drive. All in all it's a great car, and a good fit for our family

Ford Explorer It has good storage space, remote key entry.

I really like the sunroof features. The sun roof windows are very large, which is nice. The seats are pretty comfortable, however, I wish they were wider. Most women are a medium size, and the seats are a little too narrow for comfort. The area where I buckle my seat belt in cuts into my hip. If you sit in the middle seat the seat belt cuts into your hip as well, not a lot of butt room. Wish there was more room. And as far as the middle seat folding down like they showed us at the dealership... it always gets stuck so my kids have to jump over the seat to get to the third row. We have had to have our tires changed out already because the tires started wearing out. Our vehicle only has 20,000 miles. What really stunk about the tires, is that we had to pay for part of it to get them replaced at Ford. Other than these issues, we do like the vehicle.

2017 Ford Explorer (Base Model) - Roomy, safe, and fun to drive!

The 2017 Ford Explorer 'Base Model', has been a great addition to our family. I've had the vehicle for 2 years, and it still feels like I just drove off the lot. The 3rd row comes in handy when our family from out of town comes in for a visit. The vehicle is very roomy and comfortable and having the ability to fold the 2nd and 3rd rows down, provides ample amount of space to transport bigger items. My favorite part about the vehicle are the different driving modes (4x4, sand, gravel, grass, mud, uphill, and snow) and the third row option. The only con(s) to the base model are the limited options such as a Sunroof, blind spot detection, navigation, fog lamps, roof rack, keyless start and entry are not included, and the back up cam/SYNC screen size is small, only 4.5' I believe. Most of the options can be added on if you like.

The Explorer is the best family SUV

The Explorer I have is very spacious and comfortable. I got all three of my kids in the back and they have room to spread out if they should need or want to. The 2nd row seats lean back if they wanted to lean back. The back also has air/heat control so they can choose the temperature. The LED touchscreen on the dash is a must for me and I love it. I can easily hook up my phone (as well as my kids phones) to listen to music or use hands free calling. I also love the backup camera and blind spot/parking assistance. This vehicle has been the best for my family. We have taken it on many road trips and we have zero complaints. The only thing I do not like is the touch screen does freeze up every once in a while, but that's normal for any kind of software.

- Ramsay B

This is a great, safe, fun car.

It is really well compacted but there is a lot of room if you need it. There are a lot of advanced features that make it a great vehicle. The navigation is always spot on and gives us the best routes. I also like that you can play Spotify without having to use your phone. The dashboard has a sensor that changes the lighting on screen in the car. It can be a little frustrating when it's sunny but I drive through a shady spot and the screen gets too dark for me to see. I like that the car is a touch to start, and that it beeps to remind you if you left it on when getting out. I also love the remote start because I live in a cold area and the car warms up incredibly fast. All in all, its a fantastic car and I would recommend it to anyone.

- Jennifer B

Love the heated seats and car play.

My 2017 Ford Explorer is great and I really love the design we have a big family of 7. The gas mileage is great along with comfortable seating. If you have a big growing family a few downfalls are there just isn't a lot of growing room for the kids in the 3rd row there is hardly any leg room and they are always complaining about being too cramped up. I also have a infant with his car seat and base buckled in the second row we have to scoot up the passenger seat almost all the way to the dashboard. And If we all travel somewhere there is never enough trunk room. If we could have afforded something bigger we definitely would have gotten it. But if you don't have a big growing family like us then you will love this ride.

Drives like a car, but it�s an SUV!

My Explorer Sport rides very much like a car and has the feel of a car due to the wide wheelbase. I really prefer driving a car, but I needed more space than even a full size car could provide. The Explorer is perfect because it is not too big, yet I can still carry up to seven passengers. The sport model has more horsepower than the other models. This makes it really fun to drive and feels like a car. The only drawback is the gas mileage, which isn't too bad considering it's a 7-passenger vehicle. I don't drive many miles to the gas mileage isn't much of an issue for me. I have had to take it in for a couple of minor repairs, but they were covered under warranty. I would consider buying another Explorer in the future.

My Ford Explorer is the perfect size vehicle for 2 or 7 people!

My Ford Explorer is the perfect vehicle for me. It seats up to 7 (including myself) but if needed, I can also lay down the 2nd and 3rd row seating for a ton of cargo space. It is easy to drive and park. Many of the displays/radio/cruise/heating/cooling are controlled from the steering wheel. I have two things I would change: 1) either the driver's seat would raise up higher or the window would be positioned lower on the door. I find it is difficult to reach for things (drive-thrus/ATM/mailbox) from the driver's seat. (2) the black carpet and black leather seats show every speck of dust and dirt. I love the Bluetooth capabilities and the carplay access to my phone. Overall, it is a very comfortable ride.

- Liz T

It is as nice looking as it drives.

I love my car!! I feel so safe in it because of the size. . . It is a solid car. There are wonderful features. Such as the navigation system and the hands free calling features. There is plenty of room in the cargo and if needed the seats will go down completely flat. The back can be opened hands free with the kick gate feature. I enjoy driving my car and as a passenger I am also comfortable. There are duct settings for the air conditioning & the great. . Also heated seats and steering wheel. . . Overall this is a great car. . . And the body of the car is actually what made me interested. I would notice it on the highway. . . Nice looking car. . .

The Ford Explorer is a great all around purpose vehicle.

Ford makes a really comfortable vehicle to drive and ride in. Comfort is the first quality I use when evaluating a vehicle. The vehicles interior flows effortlessly. My Explorer has heated seats that you feel with different levels adding to the comfort when traveling and other options of 6 way power seats, GPS with XM radio and computerized features if vehicle needs maintenance or a low tire. The vehicle is very roomy to carry 7 passengers or fold down the rear seats for carrying cargo. A hidden trailer hitch also comes in handy in case of towing. Overall the comfort and craftsmanship of the vehicle is what makes it better than the other SUVs.

- Sue F

Great car for a large family.

I love how spacious the Ford Explorer is, it seats 7 passengers comfortably! I have 2 car seats that fit with room for another passenger in the middle row. I have the limited edition so using the buttons to put the seats down in the last row make it very convenient. This car does only get 17-18 miles per gallon which does get a little pricey for gas but having the larger vehicle to get kids around is so nice. It's also nice having seat warmers in the front and middle section so when it is cold you are able to warm up the cold leather seats. It also has smart 4 wheel drive which is super nice for people that are not used to four wheel drive!

- Krystal O

Ford Explorer! Can't go wrong with this!!

I love my Explorer! After much consideration and car shopping I just kept coming back to the Explorer. It is roomy, comfortable, and has awesome features! I opted for the Platinum model, but even the lower models have many great features. The only negative about my car is the gas mileage, which with it being a 4x4 it only gets around 14 in the city and 18-19 on the Hwy. I still am happy with my decision though. I have two small children, both in car seats and they have plenty of room in the back. The 3rd row seat has ample room for adults or children. I opted for the 2nd row captain seats, which allows easy access to the 3rd row.

- Brandy M

It is a great family car without having to break the bank

I love how smooth my car drives. The best part is how many people I can fit into my vehicle, without having such a huge SUV to drive. The Bluetooth capability is also very helpful while I make my phone calls while I'm on the road. I don't have to be distracted and look away at my phone. As far as gas, it is pretty sufficient. I commute a lot, and run errands during the day, and the gas lasts me for a week. I love that it is a base model, yet it still comes with lots of nice features like the back up camera, cruise control, power windows and locks, and a remote to open and unlock the doors.

A ford explorer makes mountain driving a breeze.

I feel it is a problem when I turn off engine, walk to back hatch to open the vehicle feels like brake not on. Rolls a bit. Unnerving. Dealer says that is to be expected I had to get exhaust rerouted as I smelled gas when I first got it. Appreciate the leather heated & cooled seats heated steering wheel is epic great sound system for my sat. Radio. Electric seats so comfy. Defrosters work quickly . Rear defroster is amazing . Air vents spread throughout cabin no matter where you are sitting it feels comfortable . Had to have all 4 tires replaced already at only 20,0000 miles.

- Candy J

Spacious, durable, reliable and family friendly

Overall the vehicle is great, pretty good on gas for an American car. It has extra seats in the back that you can pull up. They are an older style where you have to pull the strap rather than newer technology where the seats come up & down with a button. The downside is how little leg room there is back there. The ACs are great, you can monitor the back ones according to the passengers' needs. The CarPlay feature is nice, it reads your texts so you don't get distracted and responds by dictation. The interior is leather, I prefer that over polyester since we have dogs

2017 Ford Explorer XLT review

I've had my car for 2 years now, and I don't love it as much as I used to, but I do still really like it. It's super roomy, even in the 3rd row. The main complaint I have is the air vents in the back seats of mine will not stay open so whoever is sitting back there gets hot or cold faster than the people in the front seats. I love my heated seats and the dual air control. My car is not the basic model but not top of the line and it still has most of the bells and whistles. I don't rate it at 5 stars because of fuel mileage, but for an SUV it's pretty decent.

- Page I

I love the space that this car provides.

I love my ford explorer. The technology has changed how I drive and relate to my car. I love that it has sensors and a backup camera. The seats are all very comfortable and having the third row seating is a game changer. I also love that there is additional space behind the third row. When you have 6 people in your car everyone is bound to have something they need to store. Having that extra space is great! I love how it drives! It is a larger car than I was previously used to driving, but it still feels like I have great control and I am always comfortable.

- Nikki H

Great safe family vehicle!

I have not had any trouble with my vehicle. I love my ford explorer. It has a smooth ride and is safe for my family. I have two kids that ride with me on a daily basis and I am never worried about safety. I have third row seating, and it is nice that the 3rd row seats fold down completely flat. I have more than enough space for groceries or medium sized purchased. There is rear control heat, which it allows for the kids to have control over their area. I also like how roomy the entire vehicle is. There is a lot of additional room in this vehicle.

- Heidi H

The car notifies me when I am swerving or outside my driving lanes.

Since purchasing my vehicle I have had absolutely no mechanical issues. We bought this vehicle as we were expecting our first child and this car has the perfect amount of room for a family with children. I am incredibly satisfied with the overall driving experience. The car handles like a sedan but has the room of a larger vehicle. The safety features especially airbags in the backseat seat belts were big selling points for both my husband and I. In addition, the automatic lift gate makes shopping especially with a young child much easier.

- Courtney F

I love the back up camera and the safety sensors on the vehicle. It makes me feel very safe

I love the Ford Explorer. We had the Ford Edge before and wanted something bigger but not too big since we are a smaller family. I love the third row seat that can easily fold down for trunk space. The navigation and SYNC system is incredible and very reliable. Very smooth drive. I had to have the back up camera and am glad I got it. I feel very safe in this vehicle. The warnings and beepers all around the car are a great new feature I didn't have in my older Edge. I am so glad we got this vehicle. I highly recommend it to others

- Shelley M

Easy to drive and very spacious.

The Explorer is a comfortable vehicle to drive and to ride in. It is easy to manage. I love that it has heated and cooled seats. I also have navigation and satellite radio. It also has rear backup camera and front sensors which is helpful when parking as well as sensors all around the car to assist in identifying objects that may be in a blind spot. There is 3rd row seating but the back row was d seats are not the most comfortable because there isn't a lot of space. However, when these seats are down there is a lot of cargo space.

- Sherry B

Trusted Family Daily Vehicle

Comfort: The heat warmers are enhanced by the accompanied microfiber seats which provide efficient yet not overwhelmingly hot. I've used when my body is sore, and after 10 min. I am back to normal! The performance is wonderful, this car turns on a dime and feels so safe. I've never had any concerns with reliability. It has performed perfectly through multiple trips from Florida to Virginia and back. The only problems that I have had are with Tires, and that is from unfortunate encounters with nails on the highway.

- Sarah M

It has been perfect for my growing family.

I love my Explorer. We have not had any issues. It has been perfect for my growing family. I love that the 3rd row seating can lay flat for additional storage space. We have a few extras: heated seats, remote start, AWD and those few things have been so helpful during the cold winter months in Iowa. There has not been any transmission or performance issues with the Explorer whatsoever. It is comfortable for long drives and gets around well. I would not change anything about my car; we have been very pleased.

- Lexie L

Love my Ford Explorer and all its amenities

I love the room my explorer has. I never feel cramped and my family all fits perfectly. I can also add two guests if needed. The seats are comfortable and do not get hot since they are not leather but they are easily cleaned if needed. The fuel mileage is decent getting around 21 miles per gallon while committing to and from work. I have never had a backup camera and while I don't always use it, it's nice to have available and is very helpful. I love the backup sensors!! Overall I love this vehicle!

- Melissa S

Love the ford explorer. It's a great family car and so comfy for traveling.

No problems at all..Very pretty color and rims. Inside is spacious for our large family. My kids love the fact that they have their own vents in the back for heat and air conditioning. We travel a lot so comfort is always important and the seats are so cozy and there is no road sound. It's great on gas even running the air conditioning does not affect the gas. Love this car! I am not a fan of large SUV type cars but this one is slim and easy to drive. That back up camera is clear and helps me alot.

The 2017 Ford Explorer Sport

I've owned the vehicle for about 5 months and it is a very smooth drive. I wish there were more leg room in the drivers side. The vehicle is very responsive to steering input. The interior is a nice design and the sound system is perfect. It has a third row that folds down leaving a very large storage area in the back of the vehicle. The Running Daylight Lights in the front are very stylish as well. The MPG could use some improvement but not too different from any other vehicle in its class.

- Quake A

Lots of room for multiple people to fit comfortably and most of all safely.

I love this car! It's has third row seating, the third row folds down which makes for a lot of trunk space, you can fit a lot back there. I have two young children, so the third row seating and the large trunk space to fit strollers and car seats is ideal. It also has a backup camera which I don't know how I ever lived without before. The only complain id say I have is the gas mileage isn't wonderful. It gets about 20-23 mpg. Definitely more pros than cons for this vehicle though.

- Petra B

Best car for active families.

My 2017 Ford Explorer is by far the best SUV I have ever owned. Super comfortable and big enough to hold lots of luggage, sports gear and 2 medium size dogs 🐶🐶I have the sports package and I love the 4x4 for trips to Tahoe & mammoth - handles great in the snow ❄️ my family also surfs and the Explorer is large enough to hold surfboards inside. This car has great power - great for towing ski boats & campers. I highly recommend this car for busy active families on the go.

- Marie W

My Ford Explorer offers comfort and convenience.

I really enjoy everything about this car. It is a smooth and comfortable ride. It has fully adjustable seats and steering, which add to the comfort. It also has excellent climate control including heated and cooled front seats, heated rear seats, heated steering wheel, and dual climate control. Safety features include front and rear cameras, numerous airbags, and anti-theft features. The convenience of the power liftgate and of the power third-row seats are a plus.

- Mary H

That it has 360 degree sensors which is great for knowing blind spots.

I love my rear camera because I like the idea of knowing that I will never hit a small child that may run out in a parking lot. I love that my car has blind spot monitoring. Sometimes it's hard to see a car coming up next you and this vehicle has lights on the side mirrors. I also like that it has a hands free mode for needing to talk on a phone as it takes away the need from having to look at your phone. I also like that my phone Bluetooth connects to my car.

- Jena B

A great buy of a vehicle for anyone. Spacious, accommodating to all.

My vehicle is quite reliable & roomy. Truly spacious for groups & groceries. It runs quite well. No problem with speed. A good make. I haven't had to do any repairs at this time. It was a nice buy for 2017. The stereo sound is quite superb. The car is beauty inside and out. It is the most used car out of the 2 in my driveway. Nice color. I keep it clean on the inside and out. I especially enjoy comfort outings to the park. It's a joy on the highway.


A reliable workhorse that will fit many different lifestyles. This car is easily adaptable to many different situations / needs. Need to haul 5 people + driver for a road trip, no problem. Need to tow a trailer, no problem.

Totally love my explorer as it fits my lifestyle. My lifestyle involves geocaching across the state as well as going camping at every campable state park in the state. We are down to only 1 state park and have needed to sleep in my explorer due to intense storms that damaged the tent. It (my SUV) has not let me down in all the travels we have done. I do wish it would get better than 15 MPG when towing 2 kayaks and camping gear across KS.

- Michele T

Great car. Has plenty of pep. More than other SUVs.

Very roomy, very reliable. Comfortably fits a car seat. Tons of features. Great speakers. Love the handsfree feature they use I believe called sync. Great car. The engine has the power to really get such a big car going. I have never felt like the car is dragging to get through an intersection like I have in other SUVs. The third row seating we haven't had to use much but when it is folded down it fits out very large dog comfortably.

- Sunny J

Comfortable and spacious family vehicle.

It has very comfortable seats. It also has lots of trunk space and it has a third row that can fold up or down. It drives smoothly and I have not had to get repairs done yet. I absolutely love the back up camera and sensors/alert to let me know when something is close to my bumpers. My only complaints would be is it is a little heavy and takes a while to stop and I wish it has a sensor to alert when someone is in the blind spot.

- Becky N

the keyless entry pad. It makes it easy to never get locked out of your car.

Overall, I really love my car. The seats are so comfortable. Mine are leather and I find them more comfortable than other leather seats. The nav system and interface is really easy to use. I find it easier than similar systems in other car brands. There haven't been too many problems with my car. There was an issue with the windshield making noise, but it was fixed easily. Besides that, I've found my car to be really reliable.

- Christine P

2017 Ford Explorer is nothing short of amazing!

I have not had any issues with my 2017 Ford Explorer. I love the third row that it offers. My only complaint is that I have bench seating in the middle opposed to bucket seating. This makes it a little more challenging for my backseat passengers to get in and out of my vehicle. It also handles extremely well in the snow. I am from the Midwest so winters here can be brutal! I feel very safe on the road in my Ford Explorer!

- Jessica B

My Ford Explorer is awesome.

My truck's performance is adequate for the size and weight. The space in interior is grand and makes you feel that you are in something more luxurious and larger than actually is. Extras like heated mirrors and steering wheel come in handy for the north American winters. The comfort and ease of drive make it ideal for road trips. I have yet to encounter any problems with it and am completely satisfied with the Explorer.

- Chantal L

All the space, none of the blindsides.

I absolutely love my Explorer. It is comfortable and great for a long road trip, while also having enough space for family, luggage, and pets. The remote start is a life saver in Oklahoma winters, and the four wheel drive is to die for. And my favorite part is all the security features. There are light sensors on the mirrors to let you know when a car is in your blind spot. Parking assistance for pulling in and backing.

- Natasha S

We lease an explorer by ford. What I love most is how roomy this vehicle is.

My explorer is fantastic. It is roomy for our whole family and all of our vacation luggage and all of my kids sports equipment. It has 3 rows of seats so we can easily take friends along. It is comfortable for long and short trips. We haven't had any problems or issues with this car and I would highly recommend it to any family and would love to buy another explorer. We have the basic edition and it is a bit pricey.

- Beth K

Ford Explorer Limited 2017- awesome family car

I love my Ford Explorer limited edition 2017. The trunk has a sensor that you can open with no hands, just put your leg under and it will open. It is awesome when you have groceries in your hands. It is an amazing family car for those people like me that do not like minivans. You can fold all seats middle and back row and use it for moving or any big purchases. It can fit a 75 inch TV. I love my Ford Explorer.

- Fatima Q

I love the technology as stated before, specifically the blind spot sensor that alerts me when there is a car in my blind spot that I cannot see.

I like how versatile it is where it is still not a full size SUV but has plenty of space. I have not had any problems with the engine/transmission, and runs perfect. There is a lot of technology incorporated into the explorer which makes playing music easier and navigation a breeze. The one thing they should focus on is fuel mileage because I consistently get below the suggested MPG both city and highway.

- David M

Leather interior and white exterior, my dream ride.

This is the first vehicle I have bought that has leather interior, I love it! I also have heated seats and remote start. Drives great and the service dept at my dealership is wonderful. I have not had any trouble with this vehicle. It gets great gas mileage and I have warning sounds if I get too close something, I have a backup camera which helps me see anything that might be behind me when backing up.

- Bonnie D

Great Flexible Car, Good Mileage, great value

The vehicle is very quiet. It runs great and I have never had any problems with. The car averages about 23 mpg. The gas tank needs to be larger for a car this size. The LED lights are standard on the Explorer and the visibility at night is awesome. There is plenty of seating space. The car fits 7 comfortably. The passenger area also folds flat with ease so you gave space to load a trip to the store

- Michael S

Great in snow/seat quality.

Love the reliability and it is great in the snow. Holds 6 comfortably and the ride is super smooth even on Michigan's terrible roads. The seams on the seats, however are starting to split and will have to be repaired. Not covered under the warranty because they said I snagged it. Not sure how that would have happened but they got out of fixing the seats and have to do it myself before turning in.

- Al A

Amazing features for the price.

This is our second Ford explorer and we have had absolutely no problems or issues. I have not had a vehicle in the past with as many features for the price. The adaptive cruise is an amazing feature that has literally saved my live on two occasions. We love the third row seats and the flexibility of keeping them stowed for increased storage area or up for the grandkids. Love this vehicle!

- John B

The feeling of safety is amazing and I would never trade that feeling for any high priced luxury car.

I love the fact that I feel very safe in the vehicle when I am driving. The ride is smooth and the features are wonderful such as the back up cameras and the front warning beeps. I can auto start it too. My main satisfaction with the SUV is that I have confidence that if I were to get into an accident, I will have a great chance of not being injured too severely. I feel very safe.

- Denise W

A couple minor recent issues but overall love it.

For the most part, my car has been very reliable and cost efficient on gas. Recently, I started having issues with the ac not working out of nowhere but it fixed itself. I did have issues with the battery once last year and the media center. But nothing has happened since that battery incident. It is a super comfortable car for day to day and long trips. I absolutely love my car.

- Michelle S

The Explorer drives really well and has been a great addition to our family ride - everyone can fit without having to drive a minivan!

I love my Explorer because it accelerates fast, looks great, and has great features including cooled/warmed seats, moonroof, good sound system just to name a few! The only issue I have had is the keypad entry on the driver door adhesive has not kept it in place- the keypad is functional is just had come loose at the top of the door. The Ford dealership replaced it under warranty.

- Kendal H

Design is nice. The touch screen console is nice feature

Hood started to rust and it is a known defect. They fixed it under warranty but said this has been a problem going back to 2012 to present models. The ride was very smooth the first year but after 15,000 miles I hear more of the road and the quietcomfort is gone. The seats are comfortable and the 3 rows of seating come in handy with the kids have friends go on trips with us.

- Dave N

Many safety and driver assist features.

The Explorer has a comfortable ride that can be compared to a luxury vehicle. It is loaded with features such as heated/cooled seats, power seats, adjustable brake and gas peddle, heated mirrors, touch screen control for phone, radio and driver side massage seat. It can be used as four wheel drive, has self parking and front and rear view cameras that also provide side view.

- Jeanette F

the updated mommy vehicle

The explorer is large enough to fit tons of stuff plus children in the car. It does take a little bit of time to get use to the size but if you have all the sensors you are set. it's great also to add other kids and family members so you don't have to take an extra vehicle. The dealership I work with aways work with me, send me coupons and make owning my vehicle even easier

- Reina c

Explorer is amazing for families.

I haven't had any problems with my Explorer, yet. Hopefully it does not happen anytime soon either. I love the way it drives, it is roomy, as well as it is good on gas mileage. I have traveled in it several times and each time I am satisfied more with my purchase of this particular vehicle. It is a very reliable SUV and I plan on keeping an Explorer for as long as possible.

- Kimberly W

Dual heat and lots of room.

My vehicle is perfect for a family of 4. We are a able to travel with plenty of room for luggage and a stroller. We are able to fit 7 people comfortably for a day trip or take kids friends places. It rides smoothly and is high off the ground. The back up camera is very helpful and everyone loves all the heat zones with added heated seats. The leather seats clean easily.

- Kimberly O

Ford Explorer sport utility vehicle.

I love my car! It has heated seats and steering wheel. It also has air conditioning seats! The gas mileage is great and the vehicle drives so easily! The third row seating is easily accessible and the electric seats that move up and down are very helpful when you have your hands full with groceries or children. This is the first Ford vehicle I have owned and I love it!

- Jenna H

Fantastic family vehicle while still looking cool!!

There have been no problem with performance or reliability. The seatbelts were a little different and difficult for the kids to figure out at first. It has a smooth ride and comfortable seats. It has lots of room for the family plus some. Loads of extra like massaging seats which we love. The sound system is great. The seats fold down easily. Overall great vehicle!

Lots of room for families and luggage. A great family vehicle!

For a base model it runs well but is a little sluggish compared to the XLT. The ride could be smoother but it is as bumpy as most SUV's. With regular maintenance I have had no major problems. What I love most is the third row seat and extra storage space. Typically we only drive with our family of 4 but have been able to comfortably transport 6 people with luggage.

- L B

Kid friendly & mom approved.

I have a 2017 Explorer and I love it. It is very comfortable & has a great tech package. I have the larger screen that is easy to use & also has Apple car. I have 2 little ones who need extra room in the back seats. Other SUVs have less leg room & are more compact. The Explorer provides enough space for car seats & leg room. Love the heated seats & steering wheel.

- Jennifer C

It is a great mom vehicle for the on the go family.

I love that it has enough room to fit car sets, luggage, sports equipment etc.. I love the fact that you can customize the seat settings and that there is heating and cooled seating. The only thing I really dislike about the vehicle is that if you have more than two babies it is difficult to carry any other passengers due to limited space because of the car seats.

- Kelsey C

Review of Explorer from a Single momma

Great comfort for highway and trips driving and around town. Lots of room for kids and stuff. Enjoy the visibility and handling of the vehicle. Feel safe in it. Leather seating is perfect comfort and clean up. Like the convenience of the two types of outlets for charging devices. Side mirror sensors have saved me several times. And the SiriusXM is an added bonus!

- Jessica C

I do not think many people know that explorers have a third row.

Love the large screen for navigation and camera. Love the heated/cooled seats. Drives beautifully. My only main complaint is having the buttons for volume and channel changing on the right side of the steering wheel. If I am holding a coffee or anything it is incredibly inconvenient to have to put that down to use the buttons. Sounds silly but it annoys me daily.

- Rachel P

Great 4 wheel drive choice

Very comfortable and reliable. This is my second ford explorer and I plan on getting another one after this one. The 6 cylinder engine has more than enough power to handle the mountainous area I live in. The car is great in the snow, with the selectable 4 wheel drive options and option to use manual gears. The standard features are robust for base level vehicles.

- John S

Roomy, Accommodating, and Reliable Vehicle

No problems or complaints. I love the room in the trunk, the space and the reliability. My Explorer does not have all the bells and whistles, but does have the Sync 3 system which has been such a great accessory. I love the back up camera and the tinted windows. I would recommend an Explorer to anyone who is looking for a roomy, reliable, and great looking SUV.

- Nicole P

The amazing amount of room we have for 4 people plus a dog! The price Great.

There are absolutely no problems with this car. It was purchased in March of 2019. It was a fleet car meaning another company had it as their company car. Rides very smooth and had a ton of room for the two girls plus our dog. We enjoy the features on this car such as navigation, backup camera, push to start. We can also close the trunk with a push of a button.

- Pamela G

Absolutely love my Ford Explorer!!

The Ford Explorer is a wonderful family car or run around car. The explorer gets wonderful gas mileage on trips and is really smooth and quiet on the highway. The back seat has great legroom for passengers and space for car seats. Also the seats fold down flat to make hauling different things a lot easier whether it be furniture or groceries the room is there.

- Natalie R

It also has a lift gate that opens by swiping my foot under the back bumper.

My explorer is powerful and runs well. I can turn the back into a third row seat to hold a total of 7 people which I occasionally need. I do not need to pull my keys out of my purse or pocket I can open the front doors just by touching the door handle which is wonderful when my hands are full. It also has a remote starter which will be wonderful in the winter.

- There's A N

Lots of storage and apple carplay for the win!

I love the Explorer. Having a toddler, it has a lot of space for strollers and whatever I need. The third row option is convenient and still allows for adequate trunk storage. The safety features are helpful, backup camera and surrounding beepers. I like the option for apple carplay as well. The panoramic roof is nice. I wish the second sunroof would retract.

- Brit B

Why I Love my Ford Explorer

The Explorer is one of the best vehicles I've ever driven. The seats are comfortable, there's plenty of leg and head room for passengers, and my kid's car seat fits with no problem. There's plenty of room without feeling like you're driving a tank. The ride is very smooth as well. Everyone that rides in my Explorer comments on how comfortable of a ride it is.

- Nikki R

Need Space? Ford is your answer. Perfect for family and friends.

Perfect for a family and reliable. It has a third row seat which comes in handy for extended family and trips. We chose the explorer because of its ample space especially in the third row. Other vehicles we saw little to no leg room for the passengers in the back. Great ride and safety features are great. I've always had a Ford and will continue to buy Ford.

- Krystal S

Awesome SUV, I would highly recommend this vehicle.

I had been wanting a SUV and test drive quite a few models before I drove my explorer, was very happy that I did that because it allowed me to see that the explorer was the perfect fit for what I was wanting in a SUV, lots of room and options to lay all the seats down and be able to haul large items, it even had enough room to haul my overstuffed loveseat.

- Tawn B

Automatic folding rear seat. Heated and air conditioned 1st and 2nd row seating.

It handles awesome in snow and dry roads. Easily maneuvers around corners. Cruise control is easy to set and change as needed. The interior sunroof opens all the way to the 2nd row seating. Seats are heated and air conditioned in front and back. I love the auto feature to push a button to flip the 3rd row seats up or completely folded in for flat storage.

- Kathy H

Ford Explorer Sport- Family fun and safe

Ford Explorer drives well, has better torque than previous years. The back seats are roomy for my growing kids. Love the electronic third row. Remove the third row and you have lots of space for groceries or great for camping. Most importantly it feels safe. I only wish it had more USB would useful for long trips to entertain the kids with their devices.

- Gloria S

It has great pickup, love the digital speedometer.

So far I haven't had any vehicle problems with the Ford Explorer. . This is my second lease. I like the performance, reliability and comfort. It is nice having a digital speedometer and being able to change the volume and answer your phone from the steering wheel. The only thing I wish is that it sat up a little higher like the Explorers did in the 90's.

- Kimberley C

My vehicle is a 2017 Ford Explorer limited.

I really enjoy the navigation system, but feel it takes me a shorter route often compared to my maps on my iPhone. I have driving multiple times from NC to OH, and love that the sensors on the mirrors let you know when there is a car beside you in your blind spot. The back up cam I never thought I would find useful, but I rarely back up without it now.

- Haley T

Great family vehicle, great price, great buy.

Rides and drives great! Heated leather seats, navigation, third row, accident prevention. It has it all! I like it for road trips because I can keep my girls separated so they do not fight as much. The only issue I have is the back tire is always going down to 28 psi and needs to be 35 psi. I plan getting that repaired. Otherwise it is a great SUV.

- Michele B

This is my multipurpose vehicle.

It is reliable and a family vehicle. It carries a large family and lots of luggage and other necessities for vacations and school functions. I travel for work and pleasure and cart kids around for sports. The only downside I have ever found is blind spot but I think it is attributed to me being shorter. Others who drive it do not have that same issue.

- L J

I love having a forward camera when I'm trying to park or get in right places!

This has been a great car! We are a family of four. We have two car seats! With that being said there is room for each one with extra space! Everyone sits comfortably even in the third row! Just the perfect amount of room! The cameras and sensors are a great feature and help out a ton! I drive a lot of highway miles and it's gas efficient and smooth!

- Taylor H

Perfect for vacations or ferrying kids around town.

Very good sized family vehicle. Good for long trips. 3 rows of seating so kids do not have to be on top of each other. Luggage rack on top makes for ease in attaching car storage bag or box for essentials for long trip or camping trip. Plenty of room for multiple people without feeling overstuffed. Gas mileage is not as good as previous years models.

- Linda J

My Ford Explorer is the vehicle of my dreams!

I love my 2017 Ford Explorer XLT. We have the blind spot monitoring which makes it so easy to switch lanes since it's such a big vehicle. I also can open my trunk with my foot which makes it easy when I'm carrying a lot of items. The interior is so nice and comfortable. The heated seats and automatic start are life saver in the cold Midwest winter.

- Taylor P

I live the vehicle because it is roomy and holds up in all weather.

I have had no trouble with my vehicle. It is very comfortable and has many extras on it. The explorer is a very reliable. The explorer performs so good in dry, rainy or snowy weather. The warranty on the explorer is very good on it. I would tell anyone that is looking for a great vehicle that the explorer is top of the list. This is my second one.

- Doris L

Love the Ford Explorer. Not a gas guzzling SUV

Battery issues. Had to replace it several times due to corrosion. Also several recalls on the vehicle. Drives great. Very comfortable, good on gas. I love the camera but I wish the screen to see the back up camera was larger on the model I have. I purchased the works plan for oil changes and extra maintenance which was the best idea I've ever had.

- Stephanie S

Sleek Ford Explorer, better than a minivan

I am very satisfied with the Ford Explorer. It's large enough for my whole family yet looks more attractive than a van. I love the backup camera and parking sensors. They help a lot. The seats fold up and down so easy. And the no hands opening on the back door is very helpful. It's a very sleek looking car for someone with kids or a large family.

- Rachel D

Room to spare. If you have a large family or visitors this is your vehicle.

Love the 3 row seat. I have 6 grandkids and need the room. Also even when carrying 7 people there is still significant storage room. Recently took a short vacation, everyone had plenty of room. I also have a Toyota highlander with 3rd row seating. Although I love that SUV the comparison between the two for roominess is by far better in the ford.

- Sabrina W

Good for large families and driving vacations.

Tries to die at stop lights. It is very comfortable. It is fast, easy to accelerate. It sits high so you can see better but you can't see over the hood, so parking can take awhile to get the hang of. Kids are comfortable in the back and you can pack a lot of stuff in the trunk. Back seats lay flat or are stored easily with the push of a button

- Jill M

It is a great car for families.

We love our explorer! It has been a great car! We haven't needed to fix anything (knock on wood). We have 2 little girls and a dog and since the 3rd row folds down we have plenty of space! Love the back up camera and we use the Bluetooth every day! The driver's seat is more comfortable than the passenger seat for some reason? Overall we love it!

- Candice M

Great family car that gives you a cool sporty look

Love the sports package. Leather seats have a red trim that gives it a sporty look. Very roomy love how practical third row is to use or store. Moon roof makes it ideal to enjoy weather. Keyless feature is extremely helpful, keys can be in your purse and you are unable to unlock car. You can remotely start engine, to either cool or warm car up.

- Monica O

Blacked out Ford Explorer xts, the best car for working moms.

Ford as a whole has really transformed the look and comfort level of its vehicles. My Explorer gets compliments all the time and it is a great family car. There is third row seating to accommodate a larger family or if you want room in the back, you can lay the third row seats flat and create a much larger trunk space. Overall it is very nice.

- Caroline N

The Ford Explorer is a great family car.

Our Ford Explorer has been really good to us. Shortly after purchasing we had to drive the car 600 miles roundtrip multiple times a month. It utilizes good gas mileage and nothing with the car went wrong during all of those trips. The seats are very comfortable, and we especially enjoy the heated front seats and the heated steering wheel.

- Michelle B

Roomy SUV but not too big

I have no issues with my truck. I love it. Very comfortable. Room for the whole family and then some. I love how I can fold down the third row and have more cargo space when needed. The engine has great pick up. I have not towed anything but I am sure there would be no issues. Love how I can easily switch the 4 wheel drive off and on.

- Francesca T

The visibility issue I had just shared. Otherwise it's a dream to drive,

The only thing that I do not like about my Ford Explorer is the visibility issues. The front "post" by the windshield obstructs vision to my right when I want to see if it is safe to pull out into the road. I am learning to do an extra lean forward, lean back, and crane my neck dance to make sure I do not pull out in front of someone.

- Mary K

My pros and cons of my Ford Explorer 2017.

I love this vehicle! I would like it better if it had vent windows for the rear. Also, I would like for the pedals to be able to be moved forward. I had these two features in my Ford expedition and miss them. This car does have certain awesome features, as heated seats and steering wheel. The driver assist and also better gas mileage.

- Ginger C

Roomy inside and beautiful outside.

The Ford Explorer is roomy and can fit all my family. It has 3 rows of seats. I love the backup assist. It is rugged enough for all terrain and stylish enough for fancy. When it's freshly washed it looks amazing. The red on our Ford Explorer is beautiful. We are very pleased with sound system also, we can use our phones and Bluetooth.

- Hope S

Happy with 4th Ford Explorer.

This is my 4th one. Only disappointed in three things: 16 gallon tank down from 20. Radio not muted when the nav system kicks in. 2nd row Seat Belt cover not properly attached. Right side cover pops off when it hits the center belt receptacle. Sync 3 works very well with my phone and gas milage is surprisingly good.

- Leroy j

Explore in the new Explorer

I have owned this vehicle for about 3 years now and I have been pleased with the performance. It is loaded with features, such as heated front seats, massagers in the front seats and the second row captain seats. I love the moonroof and the look and feel of the vehicle. It gets really good gas mileage on the highway and in the city.

- Jennifer L

Forget the mommy van, the explorer is great!

I love my car! It is comfortable, great looking, reliable and very roomy. I love my heated seats and stereo wheel, the third row backseat as needed, the console is awesome and easy to use. It has great pickup, all wheel drive is convenient in the snow and ice. The gas mileage is not great but I knew that going into getting this car.

- Deb C

Love the captain chairs in the middle row.

We have captain chairs in the middle row which makes it super easy for the kids to get in and out of the back seat! We also have 4 boys who play a lot of sports and the trunk still has enough room for a double stroller and all their baseball gear. Heated seats and backup camera is also super awesome to have. We love our explorer!

- Emily G

Conveniences and luxury of a ford.

This is my second explorer. It drives and rides smoothly. Very reliable. Front and rear cameras for easy pull in or back in parking. Heated/cooled front driver & passenger seats. Has easy lift gate option under rear bumper but I cannot ever get it to work. Lots of cargo space. Fits 7 comfortably. Power fold third row seats.

- Becky S

2017 Ford explorer, favorite vehicle purchased so far.

I really like my Explorer. It has a very smooth ride. The tan leather interior cleans up nicely and when the third row of seats, there still plenty of room for luggage. Have not had any major issues, a couple minor ones, where the rear wheel bearing needed to be replaced and there’s a noise coming from the fan blower motor.

- Tm E

The 2017 Ford Explorer & it is main features.

I have had a great experience with my vehicle. I have 4 children who I drive with every day. The vehicle is comfortable and safe. The features of the digital screen are very helpful. The rear camera is especially helpful in backing up in the safest way possible. That is important to me to keep my children as safe as possible.

- Lisa F

Ford explorer highlights - XLT.

The ride is nice. Sometimes acceleration is not great. Third row is extremely roomy, even for average sized adults. Decent cargo space even with third row up. Dual moonroof option is nice. Second row bucket seats are great for third row access. Heated front row seats a plus. Ventilation for back seats is good, even third row.

- Amanda D

Lots of room, cold a/c and pulling power. Good dependable everyday vehicle.

I have a 2017 ford explorer. I like the fact that it has plenty of engine power to tow a boat or trailer if needed. It also comes with a third row set which is great because I have a big family. It's a four wheel drive which is going to make it easier to get around in the snow. I'm thankful to have such a dependable vehicle.

- Joe D

It is gets terrible gas mileage.

Our car has a terrible sound that seems as if the windows are cracked when they are not. The middle row does not have a lot of legroom making it hard to get kids in and out of their car seats. The third row is also so small it does not have any use. The back window does not roll down making it hard to have dogs in the back.

- Jessica B

Love my zippy Ford Explorer Sport!

I love my Ford Explorer Sport! Very zippy! Very sleek looking with the black instead of the chrome. Fits 4 adults comfortably, but is a little small if you're traveling long distance for a long time. With luggage and everything, you need more room. Normally it's just my husband and I and that way it's great for traveling.

- Karla C

Ford explorer 2017 XLT with four wheel drive.

Very comfortable seating... Great for long trips. Great in the snow with the 4wd. I am 5'5', my husband is 6'3' and we both fit comfortably and can see comfortably without blind spots. We have third row seating that can be folded down to give a lot of space in the back. We appreciate the rear-controlled air conditioning.

- Kathryn F

For an suv this vehicle rides very well and is quiet.

Love the style, ride, and sunroof. The gate lift feature that is to open when my foot is waved under the back bumper rarely ever works - very frustrating and disappointing. I'm not fond of how the front seats sit up on a riser - my heels hit that when I'm in the vehicle. I'm still not used to the absence of a gas cap.

- Megan D

It has so many safety features that help you every time you get in the vehicle.

I love that my car has so many safety features like the back up camera and the feature where it beeps when a car is coming towards you when you are backing up. I hate that my gas tank is on the passenger side because I hate leaving the driver's side to walk around. I love the way my car drives and looks on the outside.

- Julie C

Ford explorer my review that's all I have to say stop this stupidity.

Easy to drive and fun to drive have yet to have any problems with it, bought red because it looks the best and it's comfortable to sit in either driver or passenger and that's about all I have to say about it for right now, but I have to go on so I will waste time by adding anything I can think of to make this go away.

- sue P

Limited edition is the way to go!!

My Ford Explorer is a limited edition. It has all the bells and whistles. I love the heated and cooled seats. I really love the seat adjustments. It has navigation which is really great. I use it a lot. It has a great smooth ride and not a lot of outside noise. It has the blind spot mirrors and they really help a lot.

- Teresa S

Features of the ford explorer.

Smooth ride. Love the features: remote start, keyless entry, gps, satellite radio, heated seats and steering wheel, large backup camera, touch screen . Very roomy and comfortable. Big enough because it has the third row. The third row is a little complicated to get up and down. There are directions printed in the car.

- Alison V

My for Explorer looks great and drives even better!

My car is great looking, is very comfortable and well-laid out inside. It drives beautifully, gets reasonable gas mileage and has lots of helpful/fun features. I think it also ranks well with respect to safety features. Finally, I really like the dealer and it is service department, which is a very important element.

- Kelley J

I love my explorer. The seats are perfectly comfortable, the instruments are clear and easy to use. I LOVE the foot-activated tailgate and it's the perfect size for my family. The only "concerns" I have so far is that less than a year in, road noise is coming in, and on the Sync system, I occasionally hit the wrong button when I'm trying to change radio stations, so I don't know if it's me or touch sensitivity on the screen. I'd also have preferred heated mirrors, but that could be available on another model, perhaps. Sometimes the lift gate will activate if your foot slides under the bumper while walking past, especially in the garage. That put me in a pretty precarious situation one day.

It gets outstanding gas mileage for an SUV, is perfect for families and offers affordable luxury. I don't work for Ford, but they have a winner with this one. I also know there's been concern with an exhaust leak, but I've never noticed any problems with that or experienced any symptoms related to the alleged issue.

- Jodi R

Tried and true Ford Explorer owner.

I now own my 3rd Ford Explorer. I love a big car. Must have 4 wheel drive. Makes winter in New England more bearable. Very comfortable car to drive. Power and versatility of s truck with comfort of luxury car. I will say that my 2 previous fords had transmission issues at the end but we're very reliable for years.

- Holly D

Ford Explorer perfect for working mom.

We bought it used and the only issues we've experienced is the sensor goes off randomly and the radio gets a little loud on its own. It's a seven seater which is nice for bigger families and it is very spacious and comfortable. It is a big car and tall so it took me a while to get used to the size of the vehicle.

- My N

2017 Ford Explorer 4x4 base model

Our Ford Explorer has been very reliable and affordable. The base model came with everything necessary for the family. There has currently been no need for repairs or any other services outside of basic maintenance. Overall we are happy with this vehicle and would highly recommend especially for a family vehicle.

- Cory C

The apple sync feature in the car dash is great.

My only complaint is that I already need new tires even though I only have 21000 miles on the car! It is very comfortable, and I enjoy the in-dash entertainment system. The car drives well and performs well in all conditions. The roof racks come off when I run the car through a car wash - however reattach easily.

- Morgan G

Title is tammy’s review. Back up assistance it comes equipped with.

I have had not a single problem with my SUV since I bought it. I am very pleased. I loved the built-in GPS. And I love my sunroof. It takes off as smooth as silk and stops on a dime. It is so quiet when you are sitting still you can barely hear the engine running. And it is the safest vehicle I have ever been in.

- Tammy H

Ford Explorer - good for new mommy.

The SUV is really roomy - seats 7 comfortably. Love all the features, including sensors and back-up camera, warmed steering wheel, hot and cold seats. The only issue I have had is the sensors are really sensitive. Sometime it goes off randomly. It is really tall, so I had to get used to driving a larger vehicle.

- My J

Good family SUV user friendly and fun to drive!

This car is very reliable and user friendly. There is lots of space for kids and supplies. Putting seats up and down are easy to do. The electronics are fun and easy to use. It is a comfortable riding larger SUV! There are sensors that help navigating in tight areas. Overall this has been the perfect family SUV!

- Tara M

Great Family Sports Utility Vehicle

The Explorer is the best car I have ever owned. It has great safety features. I have two kids and they love having their friends ride along and so much comfort including legroom, etc. Rear air is also equipped which makes it great for different temps for front and back. Overall, this is a great SUV to purchase.

- Megan S

Ford is built on dependability and comfort.

I have always bought Ford vehicles. I love their dependability and sense of security. They have everything from SUVs to luxury vehicles. They're keep up to date with the bodies of their vehicles. I also get an employee discount since my dad retired from Ford which is also an incentive purchase a Ford vehicle.

- Michelle R

The v8 engine is my all time favorite part.

I really love pretty much everything about my vehicle. The four wheel drive and v8 engine are absolutely wonderful especially in the winter. It will never leave you stuck. It has a lot of power and picks up speed fast. The circulation of heat and air conditioning assures the right temperature in any weather.

- Ryan B

2017 Ford Explorer is a great vehicle.

Love this vehicle. The only issue we have is sometimes the back hatch only goes up halfway on its own. It's a bit difficult to use the third row seating. Heated seats are great and the back seats climate control is a nice feature. We have a v8 so the gas can get pricey. All wheel drive is great in the snow.

- Antoinette H

Sporty SUV for the on the go family

Great vehicle for large family. Sony sound system is perfect. Captains chairs are great for ease of access to the back seat. Hands free tailgate is a great concept but you can rarely trigger the sensor just right to get it to actually work. Sport edition is peppy and has just enough pickup for daily commute

- Emily B

It is very reliable.

I love my Ford explorer. I like that I can fit my entire family, with car seats, safely in the seats. I also like that there is trunk space. I wish there was a little more trunk space, but I can always fold down one of the back seats. I also like the large screen on the dashboard. Easy to read and navigate.

- Carolyn M

I really like the panoramic roof and sporty looking tires.

The Explorer is pretty good on gas based on the size of the vehicle. It is comfortable, and it has a lot of features. The panoramic moonroof is really nice looking. My tires did bald very quickly, but there was an issue with the tires that were put on my model and they covered most of the replacement cost.

- Chris L

My favorite feature is the led headlights, makes driving so easy at night.

Only 2 things I dislike about my 2017 ford explorer. 1st is problems with the evaporator coil. There's a moldy water smells from the ac vents when you start the car. I have had it replaced twice. The other is the size of the headrests for the 3rd row, they block a lot of the view from the rearview mirror.

- Monica F

Comfortable and handles Michigan weather.

Love my Explorer. Such a comfortable ride and does well in all types of weather. Handles the Michigan winter wonderfully. It is very comfortable with 6 passengers although a little tight if we use all of the seats for 7 passengers. When using the flex fuel e85 gas mileage is less than with regular gas.

- Marcia A

My Ford Explorer. Has leather seats which front seats are heated.

My Ford Explorer is the best ever, driving it is so much fun and so comfortable. Has 3 rows of seating and everyone is comfortable and have plenty of legroom. Have plenty of room for hauling all kind of items. No problems with my Explorer like driving it and would recommend this vehicle for all to try.

- Barbara R

I feel safe driving this vehicle due to the structure, size, and airbags.

I love the way it drives and how I can see the road better than in a car. I custom ordered the vehicle to have bucket seats in the back but there is still limited room with the carseats. There is also no good way to get to the backseat with the car seats installed. The fuel mileage could be better.

- Christie B

Ford 2017 explorer great overall car!

Problems seats in back and rear seats are hard to manage, hard to get out tire in the rear when experiencing a bad tire. Performance is overall quite satisfying, uses a lot of gas. Comfort is great, quite comfortable . Features are all good, would like full set of newest safety features available now.

- Patricia T

Ford Explorer. I love the backup camera!

Love the look, love the ride, love the interior. Drives well, wish the gas mileage was a bit better. I have had some safety feature concerns. When I bought the car I later found out the passenger front seat wasn't bolted to the floor and was told that it should have never left the factory like that.

- Jennifer J

Interactive system w/my cell phone very helpful GPS & hands free phone use, .

Handles well in the city, as well as highway driving. The wiper-blades speed is an issue at times in heavy rain, do not feel that the blades are efficient in keeping up with heavy downpour. Gas mileage is a bit low, but motor is very strong. Very spacious interior. Enjoy the full length sunroof. -.

- Renee C

The car has an awesome radio and backup camera. The car holds 7 comfortably

No problems yet. It runs and sits great. Holds 7 passengers. It is very roomy for a family with children. I love how the back seats lay down. The features are wonderful with the backup camera and the touch screen radio. We have cloth seats and love the black color. The seats are electric powered.

- Chelsea R

The vehicle is very quiet and drives very smooth.

I have not had any problems with my Explorer! It runs very smoothly and quietly. I love that there are three rows. My daughter says the third row is actually roomy and comfy. The only thing I would change would be to have captain seats in the second row. I would definitely recommend this vehicle!

- Megan K

The easy notifications that I get if something is wrong with my car.

Really good size because it's not too small so I feel safe but not too bulky. It is easy to drive and the comfortable. I feel safe when I am in the car and the functions are easy and useful. I really like my car and I think that it is good for those who travel a lot because it's good on gas too.

- Emma M

The best quality of a Ford

It's a good dependable car good on mileage. Keyless entry is a great feature. It saves on gas and is really roomie. The different features be That is why I think this is an awesome vehicle. The vehicle runs smoothly on the road and the air conditioner is a good thing. The rear view camera needs

- Ruby G

Small details that could be improved.

Very few complaints: passenger side seat feels short compared to the drivers side, making it slightly uncomfortable for long drives. And the memory settings for the driver's seat, steering wheel, and foot pedals (for 3 drivers) do not always remain set; they occasionally need to be readjusted.

- Penny V

A comfortable and sporty ride.

I have had no problems except a noise inside the car. The ride is very comfortable and it has many features such as heated seats, backup camera, iPhone connectivity. The SUV will hold up to 8 people. I get about 19 mpg around town. There is plenty of cargo space when the third seat is stowed.

- Carol E

Does not use a lot of gasoline. The camera is an a good quality.

Very big and strong car, the safety of car is very high. Comfortable to drive. Enough space for whole family. Use not so much gasoline, had a lot of switches for comfortable driving. The tank is huge when the third row close, but when you use a third row it is has enough space for passengers.

- Lina Z

Leather seats are extremely high quality and comfortable.

I have had zero issues with my car since I got it I really do love it. But I would prefer it to have more bells and whistles it's more of the 'work truck' version as they call it. Which is just basic everything except it does have Sirius XM, just no screen or navigation or anything like that.

Sporty, safe and comfortable!

Very comfortable and easy to see other cars. Four wheel drive and other options help me feel safe and have prevented potential accidents. 7 passenger seating and technology are awesome features. We like the sporty look and drive of the explorer and have been comfortable on long road trips.

- Lisa C

Love the double sunroof and the computer

Love the features and the drive is very smooth. The factory tires are junk, needing to be replaced at not even 25K miles and it does not shift gears smoothly most of the time. I've had the issue checked out at the dealership, but they stated that there was nothing wrong they could find.

2017 Ford Explorer white in color

I have not had any problems so far with the Ford Explorer. I love the seats they are very comfortable. It has a nice back up camera to help which I love. No blind spots really. The vehicle is pretty decent on gas and rides great! It's a wonderful vehicle for moms! The kids and I love it!

- Haley L

Love everything about my car!!

When I bought this car I was looking for a vehicle that could accommodate my large children, what initially attracted me to this car is the fact that it has a third row that is roomy. I also like the smooth ride, but still has plenty of get up. The mpg is really good for a car this size.

- Cynthia M

Ford explorer: creature comforts and room for the family.

My ford explorer is awesome. It has three rows of seats which provide plenty of room for my three children. It has a spacious back space. I love the heated leather seats, heated steering wheel and back seat heat controls. It is fun to drive and the 4wd makes driving in the snow a breeze.

- Kari J

A decent family car. Large, decent gas mileage. Trunk space is the best.

Got in an accident with it, very little damage on the outside but it had severe frame damage. It shocking. Very expensive to fix. Other than severe frame damage from a small accident, it gets decent gas mileage for a large car, good visual, can hold every family member, good trunk space

- Shelby B

Features of the Ford explorer

I love the extra third row seating I love that you can fold down the third row seating I love that you can fold down the second row seating partially or fully. I love the automatic controls for adjusting the driver seat it's very comfortable. Seats are difficult to clean if they stain

- Jennifer J

Comfortable, reliable ride.

There are many comparable cars with similar look and features, but this Ford is a comfortable car with all desired features. Spacious and great for an easy ride. Classy look and reliable for long trips. If you are looking to get the most for your money, this Ford is the right choice.

- Anais G

Good SUV for various family sizes

Quiet, comfortable, smooth ride, good power especially when driving over mountain range, a lot of room for tall people. Gas mileage average. Backup camera and warning system good. Cold air conditioning. Many compartments to store items. Third row seats folds down into many positions.

- Gina S

Excellent choice for medium sized SUV-The Ford Explorer

My 2017 Ford Explorer is a great vehicle. It is roomy, accelerates well and drives smoothly. It has all the luxuries that I enjoy such as heated and cooled seats. The gas mileage is good for a SUV. I would recommend the Ford Explorer to anyone that is looking for a medium sized SUV.

- Angela I

Love the air conditioned/heated/massaging seats for the driver and passenger.

My husband and I have taken our 2017 ford explorer on long vacation trips across the country. The explorer held up well in all weather conditions, was comfortable and roomy. Gas mileage also was great. The only thing I would change is a place to put your cell phone(s) while driving.

- Michelle A

The backup camera and the noise it makes is my favorite feature.

The Explorer is a pleasure to drive. It is a smooth ride and very comfortable for long trips. It also has plenty of room for golf clubs and a lot of legroom. . There have been no problems with this vehicle. I love the backup camera and the noise it makes when someone is behind you.

- Mary B

State of the art technology

I have only had this car for less than a month, but I am already in love! The features are amazing. I can sync it with my phone and listen to my music, or talk on the phone through the speakers. The backup camera is great and I really enjoy the blind spot indicators on my mirrors.

- Tiffany B

Nice vehicle, one you buy will never go back.

None the vehicle has been perfect. I have no issues whatsoever. It is still s newer vehicle so I'll give it time. I do not have anything else to say about this vehicle and seems to be working great. If you are in the market for a new vehicle I would highly recommend this explorer.

- Jill D

2017 White Ford Explorer XLT with aluminum wheels and back bench seats.

We haven't experienced any trouble with our current 2017 Ford Explorer. It drives and performs nicely and seems to do well on fuel economy. It seats up to 7 passengers and is comfortable to drive. When the back seats are folded down it has a nice amount of storage in the back.

- Amber T

Overall good vehicle, with some issues.

Good vehicle with nice features. Purchased used. Have had some issues with car performance. For example, have some issues with the engine shutting off while car is braked. Bluetooth connectivity also can be spotty with the car, and will disconnect from my phone when I am driving.

- Mel H

Great family car without large price tag.

Car has excellent space for family with third row. Hands free liftgate makes it easy to carry items without need of button. Apple carplay is extremely useful. Sports appearance package make the car look very modern. Ride is smooth and have no issues with city or highway driving.

- James S

Great family reliable vehicle

We have had very few mechanical issues with this vehicle. The only one we've had is that the struts keep needing to be replaced. Ford has been looking into this problem and has replaced them for us each time. The vehicle is very comfortable and a great vehicle for families.

- Jen S

The sound system is the highlight of the car I like how it sounds.

There is not any problems about the car. The performance is okay and the reliability is great. I love how the seats fell around my body and it has great back seats to them also. The features to the car are great also we have sxm in the car now we can listen to any station now.

- Jasmine C

What something fun to drive! This SUV is the one.

Not to big and not to small, lots of legroom for tall people, lot of seating, and lots of storage, very fun to drive, runs great, and is very comfortable, passenger controls for the a/c in the rear seating area. Nice big screen for the navigation, and the stereo sounds great.

- Barry J

It is safe and comfortable.

I love my ford. Has massage and heated seats. The auto start is perfect. I love the bucket seat and the third row. I love the features. The automatic parallel parking is an excellent feature. I love the leather seats and that heat and cool. I would recommend my car to anyone.

- Jeff M

Ford Explorer pro and cons.

Drives smooth, it has a lot of legroom for all passengers including driver. Back seats fold up or down for more storage in trunk. Has air controls for middle and back passengers. Only negative thing is I wish it had cup holders for the middle row! Only the back row has them.

- Jennifer D

I love my 2017 Ford Explorer!

I love my Ford Explorer! It's very reliable and fits my entire family comfortably. The safety features are great. It handles exceptionally well in all weather. It also gets great gas mileage for being a larger vehicle. It's hands down the best vehicle I have ever owned.

- Jessica V

Dependable and Easy to maintain

My vehicle is dependable and provides reliable performance. It has few maintenance issues and is easy to care for. It is easy to find spare parts when anything goes wrong. The ride is usually smooth and comfortable. It handles all types of weather well and is fuel-efficient.

- David S

heated seats remote start easy lift trunk.

I have not had any problems in the time I have had this car. It has run properly and I have had no issues while driving. This is comfortable with heated seats and leather seats that are easy to clean. The performance of the car has been great with no issues in over a year.

- Laura W

The safety features have really been thought out and executed well.

I like all of the safety features in my car. Having cameras, 360 sensors, climate control, front brake warning, AWD for various terrains and a nice sound system makes for a comfortable ride. I dislike the back window, as it can be difficult to keep clean with the spoiler.

- Kristy A

Seven seat SUVs are the bomb!!

Overall I like my ford explorer very much because it seats seven and I can take my son and all his teenage friends places. I am concerned however, that it is less than two years old, has only 23k miles on it and the transmissions seems to be 'pausing' and then 'lurching.'.

- Gabrielle S

I enjoy driving everyday because I'm comfortable and feel safe in my car.

Great car for families.We with lots of room. Very comfortable and easy to drive. The features are very nice. The interior has the look and feel of a luxury car. The body style is sleek and sporty. No experience with problems yet however there have been several recalls.

- Samantha C

Features that are ready to use!

The car is extremely easy to use. The driving and navigation is great but the features are what sold me. Everything makes sense on the screens and easy to navigate around. The voice system is suburb. The car can literally do anything and everything with 1 or 2 commands.

- Karen G

I love the look and feel of the car, leather seats would of been attractive.

Really nice, wish I had leather seats and couple of other features such as making noise if someone is in blind spot and brake assist. Love the feel of the car and the smoothness of it. The comfortability of is really good and spacious. I have enough room for the family.

- Stacey B

It�s a good vehicle. The explorer is reliable and I have not had any issues.

So far the ford explorer is an awesome vehicle. Only minor issues with the windshield wiper. Customer service for this vehicle has been very good as well. The only negative thing I would have to say is the gas mileage. Since gas is about 3 dollars a gallon in Altoona PA

- Andy C

I love my Explorer - great for the Minnesota weather.

I love my Explorer. It is perfect for MN with the on demand 4 wheel drive options. It is sporty yet classy and comfortable. The 3rd row seating is perfect when we company. I only wish the gas mileage was better for this vehicle - especially as gas prices start to rise.

- Marcy S

2017 newly purchased vehicle

I love the size and style of overall vehicle. It has sleek design and very sporty look. For long distance the vehicle is spacious and provided comfortable ride. In short deals have had issues with them with vehicles like power assembly and something with transmission

- Trina P

It is a great family car!

I don't have any problems with this vehicle. I really like the feature of the ground lighting a night, you can choose whatever color you want. My other favorite features is the automatic folding of the back row either halfway or all the way with the touch of a button!

- Devin R

Technology bad, but drives good

The car drives pretty smooth and has a lot of seating. The only problem I have is that there are issues with the technology with the car. Sometimes it automatically updates parts of the system within the car, while not updating other parts. Overall, it's a decent car.

- Tiffany T

Great for moms who need space.

The car is sleek and modern. It also has a enough space for a mom with a toddler who comes with a lot of stuff. I love the additional third row so we can carpool with others without worrying about taking out our car set. I also enjoy the touch screen and technology.

- Casey F

Great all round and very nice to own.

The vehicle has no problems and has great performance. It can even go off-road and still feel comfortable. It has very nice seats making it super comfortable for the driver. There is also the option to add more seats in the options if you have more kids. Thank you.

- John D

The good and the bad of my Explorer.

Dust get into backend. Hard to wash. Bad in snow. Heated seat and steering wheel are great. Dual control is great. If passenger windows are down need to have front down to avoid bad noise. Drives great. Luke the sensors and rear view camera. Has plenty of plug ins.

- Lisa R

Great vehicle, would buy another.

Loaded, comfortable and has the seat adjustments on the passenger's side as it does the driver's side which is why we bought this particular vehicle. Heated seats are wonderful and, of course, the air conditioned seats also. Better than the Cadillac srx we owned.

- Donna D

Plenty of space for everyone and most everything!

I love my Explorer! It is perfect for my family of 4 with our children both in car seats still. Driving performance is amazing, never had any issues at all! I love that I have plenty of room for both car seats plus extras if needed. Highly recommend this vehicle!

- Brittan S

I love my car. Best choice ever.

I love this car. It is great in the snow and not awful on gas miles. It is a comfortable car with a smooth ride. It also has amazing satellite radio. I love being able to open my door using a passcode over a key. I got a remote starter added in. It works amazing.

- Job Z

It is a comfortable, family-friendly vehicle.

I like that it is a sporty SUV. It is a good family vehicle and fits kids comfortably in the back seats. I dislike that it is not as luxurious as my last SUV. I also dislike the sound it makes when idling in the school car line, which makes it sound poorly made.

- Holly J

Easy to drive, get up and go when needed and comfortable.

I haven't had any problems with our Explorer. The performance is excellent, it is reliable all of the time. I love the backup camera, the warnings of vehicles near when backing out of driveway, the warnings of getting too close to a vehicle or post when parking.

- Rita L

Comfortable and nice looking vehicle.

My vehicle has been reliable and safe. I would say that the seats are comfortable although it seems that this particular year is a bit smaller. The ac cools the entire vehicle in a timely fashion which is important when you have children. I would purchase again.

- Angelica N

Back up camera, able to haul items with seats that turn down.

I love my Ford Explorer. It is so roomy and comfortable. It drives very smoothly and is very reliable. I love being able to turn down the seats so that I can transport items. One thing I especially love is the camera that helps you back up. I love my Explorer.

- Cindy B

It's a very handy and dependable car.

My car is pretty good on gas. It has really good air and heat. When I drive it long distance it gets real good gas miles. Since I have had the car the only things I have done to it is oil change and new tires. Besides that nothing under the hood has messed up.

- Victoria W

2017 ford explorer xlt. Great vehicle with 3rd row seating

I love this sub. I got the xlt so it has the keyless start, built in GPS, backup camera. All of it! My favorite part is the little lights on the side mirrors that let you lmao of someone is in your blind spot! Also the 3rd row seating is perfect for my family

- Alicia S

Explorers are cool family cars and minivan haters

We love the explorer. Room for kids and all that comes with them. We would lie a true third row, but it does the trick. We've had very little issues with maintenance and find that even after a few years the features are still up to date even in a base model.

- Kristin M

I absolutely love my Ford Explorer

I absolutely love this vehicle. It has drives smoothly and has a luxury feel to it. the anterior is very spacious and sit 7 passengers comfortably. This vehicle is easy to learn and the family will love all the bells and whistles that come with this vehicle.

- shannon s

Great family vehicle, but still a cool car!

Suspension.is great, the car is very quiet. Enough power and speed. Great amount of storage space. Love all the features such as back up camera and sensors. Wish there was a little more space for the passenger when a car seat is installed in the second row..

- Katie R

We love the amount of space that we have. Adults can fit comfortably in 3 rows.

It has been extremely reliable for our family. We bought it before having our daughter and I have not been disappointed. There is plenty of room for her car seat and storage. We have not had any issues with the performance of the vehicle since purchasing it.

- Andrea B

Comfortable heated seats!

I haven't had any issues with my vehicle. It is the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. The leather heated seats make for a super comfortable ride. The dual climate control keeps all passengers happy. I would recommend this vehicle to everyone !

- Vicki S

Monster SUV , would recommend to everyone

This vehicle is amazing, good gas mileage. Performance is outstanding, it gets up and goes when you need it too. It's very comfortable seating 6 people no problem., great for long trips. It drives flawlessly going down the road, seems your not even moving

- Charles M

The one most important thing others should know about my Ford Explorer is that it is a very reliable SUV. I have never had any issues with it.

My Ford Explorer is a very well built SUV. It has everything I could need in a vehicle. It handles very well for a larger vehicle. My only complaint would be that it does not have very good acceleration, when I try to change lanes. Besides that I love it!

- Carla T

Roomy dependable American SUV.

It is roomy and lots of leg room and head room. Fun to drive and American made. Dependable, reliable, and not too bad on gas. Great service at dealership and sunroof is amazing. Lots of cargo room for vacation and travel. Would definitely buy another one.

- Hab R

Ford Explorer 2017 sport is a fully loaded driving experience.

So far, so good. This vehicle is new to me, but I really like the high tech features and the various drive modes. I like the "stow" function that folds the back seats at the push of a button. Easy to drive, easy to park with the various support cameras.

- Emily J

Great ride for the price!

The 2017 Ford Explorer is a very reliable car. It gets great gas mileage and is a smooth ride. I have the base model. If I had it to do over, I would get at least the next step up for the features. Overall, though, I have been very happy with the car.

- Crystal S

It is very safe and can comfortably fit my family of 5.

I love that all three of my car seats can fit in it knowing they are safe in there. I do not like that the third row only has two seats. I love that the back seats have air vents for the kids. I do wish the gas mileage was better. It is a gus guzzler.

- Kelsi C

Great for kids and travel

We bought this car when we had kids. The trunk space and third row of seats are second to none. Backup cam and parking sensors make it easy to drive such a big car. The only downside is how high it is and how heavy the doors are - both hard for kids.

- Tia F

The safety feature of side view alarms for blind spots makes is very easy to stay safe. 360 degree front and back camera is very helpful for parking

My Explorer is the platinum with very comfortable riding. The seats are leather with the driver and passenger seat having lumbar with message settings along with air and heated seats. I have plenty of room in the Explorer and it's very attractive .

- Lesley R

Not a lot of cargo space when 3rd row is being used.

We got this vehicle for the 3rd row. We have two children and both in car seats. Unfortunately, when a car seat is behind the driver's seat, it makes it hard for my fiancé to be comfortable because he cannot put the seat back as far as he'd like.

- Jessica F

The best of all of them in are the update is and how they much of it and the best of all time high right now

I love the way it performs well done and on my phone way of life and you have a great idea for the rest next to the you are the same only a couple weeks days ago when it comes to mind when you get the hang out of it all day is going into the air

- Angel D




It's perfect for families. Its safe the navigation seems on point

I love the fact it has captain chairs, therefore it makes it easy to get to bgg the 3rd row. I love the leather easy to clean with kids. Prefer the limited to mine. I got spoiled with all the bells and whistles. Was not in the budget this time.

- Christy W

Ford Explorer has lots of nice space and cargo capacity

Ford Explorer is a nice sized vehicle with plenty of space for a family, pets and luggage. The third row is very handy for extra people. It rides comfortably and quiet. It has good power for passing and accelerating. Drives well on snow.

- Jennifer P

This is a great family vehicle

For comfort in the back seats is surprisingly roomy. There is control for the heat and air conditioning with a lockout option in the front. That feature comes in handy if you have younger children who likes to push and turn button and knobs.

- Margaret B

It's comfortable and has a lot of storage and or seating.

I like how much space we have and that we are able to tow things. I also like how the seats fold down and the double moon roofs. It handles easily so I don't feel awkward driving a larger vehicle. I wish it had slightly better gas mileage.

- Rachel S

Fuel economy is good and it is very roomy and comfortable

The explorer is an excellent car. It is roomy and versatile and can be used to carry lots of stuff or 7 passengers. The bad thing about this car is that is had no power to go up a steep hill on an icy day or the ability to pull any cargo.

- Caroline B

It's sporty and safe. I got rid of a Jeep Grand Cherokee due to the safety issues and LOVE my Ford Explorer more.

I love the look of the vehicle and the color. I like the comfort of the vehicle but I do wish it had ventilated seats and power folding second and third row seats. It would be even greater if they folded down lower for more cargo room.

- Charmaine R

It has plenty of comfortable room and it has a smooth ride.

I like that my Explorer is comfortable with plenty of seating for my family. It drives and rides well. It looks nice. It gets ok gas mileage so the only thing I would change about it is that the gas mileage would be a little better.

- Stephanie J

The size... good for driving people or hauling stuff.

This is my fourth explorer. I like the size, the third row seating and storage capacity. The gas mileage is decent, too. Only complaint s with my last explorer that "died" at only 96,000 miles. I was expecting to get at least 150,000.

- Laurie W

Nice mid range SUV with seating for 7.

There are a few things that need to be fixed with the upholstery and the carpet is not cut to exact specifications. It drives nice and it fits everything that I need it to and I love the pop up third row for when I need more seating.

- crystal r

It is a versatile car that I feel is very stylish, practical and dependable.

I like that it can fit my family and a few friends. It has great power but just the size that I need (Not to big or small of a vehicle). I also like the added options - Nav, SYNC, backup camera - makes it safe and convenient.

- Lori N

Great for driving vacation

This vehicle is very reliable and have a Ford garage nearby that is top notch when there is need for maintenance. We use this vehicle for family vacations and hauling things. Roomy and comfortable for everyone in the family.

- Gretchen V

This is my third Ford Explorer! Love this SUV.

The Explorer sport model is very fast which makes merging onto highway a breeze. I love the heated steering wheel. It has comfortable seats, heated and cooled seats. USB plugs in front and back. Third row folds down easily.

- Sarah S

It is not great on gas in the city but decent on highway.

Spacious vehicle. Very bad on gas in city. Decent on highway. Luggage rails on roof are defective and unsnap with wind or water pressure at wash. Took it to Ford 3 times to repair and still not fixed. Brakes already squeak

- Vanessa L

That it's big inside and is very comfortable and can hold more people than you think.

I like it because the seats are very comfortable and the vehicle sets up higher than a car. I love storing things in the tailgate and how it opens hands free. It is easy to drive and it's been a very good vehicle for us.

- Debbie Z

This is a truck that can get things done.

I like the extra features, as well as the safety it provides. I do dislike the poor gas mileage at times. One complaint is the history of carbon monoxide for the model. I do not seem to have that issue with my car though.

- Matthew B

That the cars is a well built American made car.

My Ford Explorer is an XLT. It is very comfortable to drive and handles bad weather well. The only drawback is I couldn't get it with captain chairs in the back seat which makes it difficult to reach the 3rd row seat.

- Gregg L

Runs smoothly, spacious, enough seating for 7.

I love my vehicle, my favorite part is the the 3rd row seating so I am able to fit 7 passengers. Also, when i do not need the 3rd row seating I have a very spacious trunk that is very helpful for big shopping trips.

- Alison J

My car is a nicely made American vehicle.

My Ford Explorer is the perfect size. It is big enough to comfortably hold 6-7 people, but compact enough to fit comfortably in parking spots. It drives very smoothly and is a reliable vehicle to carry my family.

- Stephanie M

I love the Ford has luxurious family SUV.

My Ford Explorer is a great size vehicle for in city driving and travel. The leather eats and detail in the interior are the best, a very classy look. I love the camera system it's safety features come in handy.

- Sheila C

It's pretty large. It has had four captains seats and a bench in the back. It also has a sunroof and a rearview camera.

It doesn't have very many problems. The GPS is a little bit tricky to follow when important roads are closed and there is no way to change the route. It has a lot of cool features like heated and cooled seating.

- Kate A

Great truck for a busy family

The car runs very well, and fits out family and our lifestyle perfectly. However, I feel like we never hit the listed fuel efficiency numbers that were posted on the sticker price when we first got the truck.

- Matt M

Good gas mileage for the type of vehicle it is!

My explorer seats up to seven, so that our girls can take a friend when we go on trips. It runs great on snow covered roads. It is a smooth and comfortable ride. The gas mileage is better than I expected too!

- Holly G

Black beauty. Seats 7 comfortably. Great for long road trips.

I love this vehicle. I feel secure, extremely comfortable. It is very roomy, a joy to drive, quiet, great sound system. Only negative is that I am only 5 feet tall and it is hard to see over the entire hood.

- Jan D

Comfortable, easy to drive and up to date technology

I love the way it drives. Very comfortable seating. Technology on the steering wheel is awesome. It's roomy enough for all my family and gear. Looks good. Good gas mileage. My favorite car I've ever owned.

- Heather P

2017 Ford Explorer Comfortable Reliable Ride

It is very comfortable and reliable for Minnesota weather. I am a larger person so it is easier to fit in the vehicle. The engine is reliable and the features are nice. The car has met my expectations.

- Steve P

It is very function and friendly to larger families with many needs

I love the seating capacity, and flexibility for cargo. I do wish that it had the safety features for car seat installations. And I can never seem to get the auto sensor on the trunk to work properly.

- Sara M

Much more luxury than one would think is available from a Ford... paid a premium for the platinum edition.

I love the options. The acceleration with the turbo V6. The looks of the vehicle, it is very comparable to a Range Rover at less than have the cost. Good gas mileage for a vehicle in this category.

- Ray G

It drives well and has plenty of seating and space.

I love the key code on the door, captain seats, Bluetooth, three rows of seats, navigation, and dual moonroofs. I dislike that the xlt version does not have memory seats and mirrors nor cooled seats.

- Abby C


The 2017 Ford Explorer is a fine vehicle. It does well on gas when driving long distance. It provides a lot of storage space when all of the back seats and put down. The third row seating is a plus.

- Elbin C

It is 4 wheel drive and handles the road nicely.

I like how high up the vehicle is, the space available to myself and passengers as well as the way it drives. I do not like the dark interior. I like the look of the outside and the seat heaters.

- Madeline I

Unfortunately it looks like everyone's else's SUV.

I love that it is a dream to drive. Solid, yet easy to get around. Love the backup camera and the digital speedometer. The only thing I do not like is that the fuel tank is on the passenger side.

- Mary Ann K

Ford Explorer Platinum 2017

My car is a Platinum level. The inside is beautiful with white leather seats. It is very good of gas in town and on trips. It has many extras that I love that makes it a safety conscious car.

- annette h

A car is a car. It gets you from point A to B. I just needed the room for when we go camping. I have a hitch for the bike rack, I had roof rails put in so that we can have the luggage carrier on top. It fits everyone and everything that we have to travel for our camping weekends.

I have no problems with my SUV. Currently, I am very happy with it and it is a smooth drive and fits all the kids that we carpool with for sports. I had it built just the way that I wanted it.

- Rene C

The electronic panel is super easy to use. You can control the rear a/c and heater, phone, radio, etc. easily with a few touches.

I love how it handles on the road. Love the options available- heated and cooled seats, remote start. Dislike the gas mileage-average about 17 mpg. Wish there was more room in the backseat.

- Susan B

Its a Ford, that's all they need to know, Ford makes the best vehicles.

i like the storage capacity, appearance, black wheels, 4 wheel drive, large touch screen. I dislike the seats, would have like better quality, would have liked a sunroof and towing ability.

- Robert Q

It is perfect height for those that have back problems. Seats are comfortable. Love the options with the navigation system and entertainment package.

I love it! I went from a Chevy Tahoe and downsized to the Explorer. It rides nice, plenty of room, leather seats so it stays clean. I love the way it looks and it works perfect for me.

- Erica M

This car is a good option if you want a lot of "bells and whistles" at an affordable price

I like the looks and comfort of my suv. It has a lot of extras that my last car did not have that I really like. It is slightly bigger than I need and does not have very good gas mileage

- DebraM M

Gas terrible, tank very small, fill up lots. Spout not on the drivers door side!

Bulky to drive, gets very bad gas mileage, has several blinds spots when looking back, the backup camera is a joke, the only one thing I like about it is the fact it seats comfortable.

- Cheryl B

Great value for the price! If you want more room, upgrades and kid friendly without driving a minivan, this SUV is for you!

I love this car because of the value. We needed something with a third row seat. Great features like foot activated liftgate and lane change alerts. Sleek look and on our price range.

- Dana O

That it gets terrible gas mileage

I do not like the way their audio is set up to connect to the phone. I can't do anything on my phone while it is plugged in that is not displayed on the dash, neither can a passenger

- matt a

It has been dependable and a comfortable ride for long drives.

I love the way my vehicle rides and drives. I also like that I sot up a little higher and can see around me easier. The only disadvantage is that it doesn't get the best gas mileage.

- Kristina D

You do not have to hit the unlock button for the vehicle to unlock. Be close.

I love that it fits up to seven people. Love my sunroof. Does not get very good gas mileage. Seats are comfy. Plenty of room for packing and traveling. I like the push button start.

- Amanda P

Good gas mileage very comfortable love the heated steering wheel and seats.

Does not do well in snow. Need 4 wheel drive. Love color. Gets pretty good gas mileage. Large capacity for stuff and seats 7 which is nice. Liftgate could have been designed better.

- Lisa F

Great Ride, Great price, Smooth ride and safe

Smooth Ride, seats up to 7, Sync technology is great makes the ride safer when your hands stay on the steering wheel. The seats are not as comfy as the model from 2014 that I had.

- Dayami V

It is very roomy and comfortable. Drives very smooth. Looks good.

I love the size and functionality of the vehicle. The third row seating allows for more space and the seats fold down out of the way for storage. I also love the look of the car.

- brittany w

Gas mileage is excellent. It drives smoothly on the road.

It is a smooth, comfortable ride with heated, leather seats. Getting the 3rd seat up could be easier. I like the technology, the phone connectivity, gps, back-up camera, etc. .

It is really tricked out, but it is very big and really bad on gas mileage.

I like that it is roomy and can haul a great deal of things. I dislike the gas mileage and that it is too big. It is difficult to park at times. The platinum package is nice.

- Andrew j

It's not an SUV, it's a vehicle made for the person who drives for pleasure.

I drive the Ford Explorer Sport. It is the best vehicle I have owned. I have had other Explorers, Mercedes, BMW and Lexus as well. This vehicle is fun, fast and looks great.

- Gordon D

It drives very smooth for an SUV.

I love the look of this vehicle. I love the gas mileage it gets. And it is comfortable to drive. I also love that this car can seat up to 7 people. That is super convenient.

- Cassie F

The heated seats and steering wheel AND the remote start!! Living up north these are requirements and the are heavenly

I've only had one issue with my SUV (needed a chip in the computer replaced).Other than that I love my Ford!! Won't drive anything else. I have a 4WD ECO. Handles so smooth

- Jamie O

Explorer Sport great all around car nice pickup terrible gas mileage and tank size

Good size for a family of five. All the technology has worked well. Biggest downside is the size of the gas tank it is WAY too small giving the car a limited driving range.

- Mike H

It's very spacious but not too big to drive or park. It is very smooth to drive. It has a lot of features but not all.

It drives very nice, very smooth. It has no memory seats. I hate that. It's hard when there's 2 people driving it. And it has no homelink button. But the screen is awesome.

- Amber J

It is safe, it is very comfortable to ride in.

I like the design of it, and the color. I also like the 3rd row seating. I like the backup camera, and the lights on the side mirrors if there is a car in the blind spot.

- Lisa M

2017 Ford Explorer! Super comfortable and room for all!

I've honestly loved it since the day we brought it home brand new! Not a single problem from it, runs and drives super smooth and I love the steering. Roomy and so comfy!

- Ashley H

It's very Reliable and convenient and gets me where I need to go.

This car is reliable and a great family car. We have two kids and 2 dogs which it is a great size for. Love the navigation and heated seats/steering wheel. No complaints.

- Jen C

Our Ford Explorer and all Fords are top quality vehicles and can compete with all car manufacturers. I love Fords. Ford is a forerunner in cars, suvs and trucks.

The Explorer is good on gas mileage. Our Ford is easy to drive. The seats in our SUV are very comfortable. Fords are always very competitive with all other companies.

- Pam M

My 12 months with this awesome car

it's very useful, have a few problem but don't have critical problems, the performance is good, economic fuel is amazing and all my family feels comfortable in this car

- Jake H

The back up camera is a standard feature.

I have had no problems with the car. It runs great! Love the additional traction options for all wheel drive. The third row is easy to fold flat for additional storage.

- Diane L

Poor exterior, fantastic interior.

The paint is cheap but otherwise it is a great vehicle. It could always use more power but it is adequate for most situations and the comfort of the interior is great.

- Mike C

That it's not worth the high price tag a month. I wouldn't lease another one although i love it so much.

I love how nice it rides. I also love the looks of it especially when i see one out like mine. The heated seats are also very nice especially when It's cold outside.

- kelsey v

For a small SUV, it is a top choice (beating out RAV4, crv, et al.

It's very roomy and has a great look. Best SUV on the market. It drives great and the mileage per gallon isn't bad. Very smooth ride and performance overall is 9/10.

- Jesus F

Ford explorer is very reliable but the seats make it very very awkward to change lanes

No pick up and the seats make it very hard to change lanes, they are very awkward. The Suv itself has been very reliable and no issues with the motor or transmission

- Dawn H

Kid friendly spacious has everything u need.

Spacious comfortable has all the bells and whistles drives nice has sensors to help prevent accidents backup camera fits car seats easy all around great family car.

- Chelsea T

Very capable performer with upgrades extra seating and room.

The vehicle is roomy and 4wd. It has many upgraded features. It is safe and reliable. For an SUV, it handles and performs well. I wish it got better fuel mileage.

- Roger H

That it suits my needs perfectly. It gets me where I need to go, and I look good getting to and from my destination.

I love the way my vehicle handles. I am disappointed that in order to upgrade my navigation system, I have to pay Ford. Also, I'm not happy with the gas mileage.

- Curt B

It's a smooth ride with lots of space for a large family.

It's a smooth ride. Love the 3rd row and trunk space. Foot room is great and comfortably fit 3 kids with 2 car seats in the 2nd row. It's a safe fit for my family.

- Kate D

Seats 6 people with captains chairs, plenty of room.

I like that it seats 6 ppl and the 3rd row can fold down. I like the wheels and the look of it. I wish it got better gas mileage and I wish I had leather seats.

- Sara S

There isn't a lot of room between the back seat and the front seat for legs. The Edge has more room.

I love how big it is. I am able to fit many people comfortably and it was perfect when we were moving. The technology is great and all easy to use. No complaints.

- Kristen G

i feel safe driving it. and so far it has not had any issues.

I love the design, It's comfortable and shines in the sun. it drives good in the snow, not that i drive in the snow much. it is spacious and the back is large

- christa h

Has backup camera which helps you to back out of driveway.

Has many safety features. Has heated steering wheel. Very comfortable... Dislike that the outside mirrors do not automatically close when you shut off the car.

- Judy A

I love the color and how I look in it.

I like my vehicle as it has a third row seating for hauling multiple people. The gas mileage is reasonable and it has low mileage. The mileage is low on it.

- Sue J

It drives very smoothly and corners well. It feels very safe and secure for my family.

I have enjoyed driving my Ford Explorer Sport. It has luxurious leather seats that have a heated and cooling feature. I've also enjoyed my extended moonroof.

- Courtney L

It is a very safe, reliable car.

My car is very reliable. I have not had many problems with it, if any. My only slight complaint would be that the air in the tires runs out somewhat quickly.

- Caroline M

It's safety features. With adaptive cruise controls.

The vehicle is comfortable and roomy. It has so many features that I am very pleased with. The engine is powerful when necessary and not bad on gas economy.

- John F

It's a great vehicle for family use as well as commercial. Plenty of space and towing capabilities.

I like the Ford Sync system. It's roomy and smooth to drive. Has lots of nice features such as heated/cooled seats, electric seats, heated steering wheel.

- Rebecca M



- Allen D

do not buy a Ford or if you do check the tires out make sure there safe

I like that it has the third row seating. I dislike is that the tires are horrible on it. Had 3 flats in the time I had the car which is less than 2 years

- D L

there is lots of room in the vehicle for the whole family to sit comfortably

my vehicle is very comfortable to drive and is very reliable it has a lot of nice options including the ambient light system its miles per gallon are fair

- Barbara A

They are everywhere! They are a very popular vehicle.

The explorer is pretty basic. It has all the modern features. I like having the backup camera. There is nothing that I dislike about it, it is just ok.

- dani f

Nicely priced, got a good deal on it.

Performance is great! Gasoline mileage is okay. Comfort seating with 3rd rows. Never had any problems. Handles the road. backup camera, navigation system.

- Diana M

Safety. It has an excellent safety report. And this is extremely important for me and my family.

I love my brand new Ford Explorer. It is such a smooth ride, I really have to pay attention so I do not go too quickly. It also is my first brand new buy.

- John Z

Perfect family car. I love my Explorer.

This is my 5th Explorer. It is big enough for my family of 4 and for my kids to each bring a friend. I love the way it looks. It is a nice family vehicle.

- Alexis B

Quiet, smooth ride with comfortable seats, plenty of passenger/cargo space.

It is comfortable and drives nice. The ride is very smooth and quiet. I just miss my F-150 because of the V8 engine compared to the V6 of the Explorer.

- Dan R

Ford Explores a new Realm

Great vehicle that I have loved from the beginning. Vehicle is always reliable and has innovative technology. Makes me want to be a ford buyer for life.

- Kimberly L

Reliable vehicle make and model. Easy on gas. Great for travel.

Like the explorer. Shape and amount of room is good. Don't like a lot of the new stuff. Miss my old explorer. Miss having heated seats and 6 CD player.

- Karri B




This is a very comfortable SUV to drive.

I like the way it drives. it is also very stylish. I really like that I only have the extras that I want on it. There isn't a bunch of useless add-ons.

- John R

A minivan would be better but it did look nicer by comparison.

I like the size. It doesn't run smoothly enough for the cost. It's difficult to access the third row easily. Also there's not enough room in the trunk.

- Erin O

Very roomy but easy to handle. Decent line of sights all around.

It is a very comfortable car. The size is great for the amount of stuff I have to put in it. I don't like how hard it is to fold/unfold the back seats.

- Elizabeth B

It is fuel efficient and sporty. It is a nice SUV who can handle a heavy long commute

I love my car. It is fuel efficient, small enough to drive easily in heavy traffic, and it is just the right size for a family of four and groceries.

- Connie W

It looks great. It has a streamlined design with the front grill being modern.

I like the looks of the inside and outside. It is a nice car. I wish it had more power. I feel like for new car the transmission is not acting right.

- Jen D

Drives smooth and pretty good on gas for size.

The car is roomy and feel comfortable on long drives. Looks nice and modern. The car has three rows but would be nice to have arm rest on second row.

- Dallas J

It's safe. and drives well.

Fits up to 7 people. Has a sunroom. Navigation. Heated and cooled seats. Wish it had captains chairs in the center. Push a button to open the trunk

- Amanda O

The ability to drive in all weather conditions.

I like the heated seats and the remote start. It had many different adjustments for the seat to make it comfortable. It handles well in all weather.

- Melissa G

Not a lot of legroom for driver. The wheel well prevents you from being able to stretch out you left leg at all

I like the size of my vehicle. I don't like that I don't have a whole lot of room for my legs. I don't think the driver's seat is very comfortable.

- Lauren W

It is a gas guzzler, other wise it handles great, rides smooth and has a ton of room

I like my suv, but it is terrible on gas. I live in New England and wanted something that was good in snow, but this is just too big for my needs
