Best vehicle we've ever had for our family!

2019 Ford Explorer Base

The seats cradle and support well which makes for great travel comfort. The suspension handles bumps very well and I feel more comfortable in our Explorer in bad weather than I have felt in any of our other vehicles, including our F150. We were unfortunate in being t-boned in our Explorer. Surprisingly, we barely felt it and while there was damage, visually it looked minimal due to how well it is built. We are all safe and uninsured. We enjoy the sound system, space, climate control, seat comfort and how easy it is to transition the seats for hauling supplies, and the technology in the vehicle. The space in the second row of seating is very pleasantly surprising. Our only dislike so far is the cup holders in the second row are on the Lower back of the center console and use elastic bands. However, the front cup holders have tension grip teeth which has made them out most favorite cup holders - and we've become very critical of the cup holders due to past family trip mishaps. I would highly recommend the new Ford Explorer to any family!

2019 Ford Explorer: NEW FAMILY CAR

2019 Ford Explorer Base

I recently purchased a 2019 white Ford Explorer. I was looking for a new vehicle to better suit a new addition to the family: a baby girl. The back seat has plenty of room to get a newborn carrier in and out of the vehicle with ease. The storage space in the very back is spacious enough to fit a stroller, groceries, umbrellas, and much more. Living down a long dirt road I needed something that would be reliable even with the road conditions were sub par. This vehicle has been perfect for just that!

I like that it's small and doesn't require a lot of gas. It drives very smoothly

2019 Ford Explorer Base

It's a new car and it drives quite smoothly. It's pretty small but also compact as well and so it seems spacious despite it being a small car. There is also a function that tells how many miles are left in the car before I run out of gas. So that's nifty. It comes equipped with a televised GPS and the screen seconds as a rearview mirror when parking and backing up

I love my 2019 ford explorer!

2019 Ford Explorer Base

I love my 2019 ford explorer. I bought it black, and I got big black rims to go along with it. It is big enough to fit things I want to haul, but is still manageable to drive. I love the heated seats and the ac is great in the summertime! Also loved how affordable it was for an SUV.

- Taylor S

Well likes vehicle. Much better than the Ford escape

2019 Ford Explorer Base

Love the size of the car. Way bigger than the escape I had. I can fit my golf clubs in the back with no issues and live the third row of seats. The engine doesn't have that much pick up but it does the job. Side mirrors and the backup view technology has really come along way

- Michael Z

Great family car with plenty of space for the whole family including pets.

2019 Ford Explorer Base

The third row makes for easy storage. I like how easy it is the fold the seats and put them back. My two children like having separate spaces in the car. They are both teenagers so they want lots of room. It get grays gas mileage and is a comfortable ride.
