Finding the perfect used SUV is no easy task. You need a compelling option to surface from the plethora of listings available on used car sites across the Internet.
If you’re in the market for a used SUV, here’s 5 reasons why you should check out a 2014 Ford Explorer:
1 - Exceptional Power
The 2014 Explorer has four trim styles available to meet the needs of any driver. The base model comes with 3.5L V6 engine offering 290 horsepower and 255 lbs. of torque. Or, for drivers looking to improve their power output, the Sport model offers 365 horsepower and 350 lbs. of torque -- more than enough for someone looking to haul a heavy load.
2 - Great Fuel Efficiency
Even with the exceptional power output, the base model 2014 Explorer receives an estimated 20/28 mpg city/highway. This is achieved through a combination of cutting-edge technology built into every Ford EcoBoost engine. Direct fuel-injection twin independent cam timing makes sure that you’re not spending more than you have to at the gas station.
3 - Comfortable, Sophisticated Interior
Luxurious is the first word that comes to mind when you enter the 2014 Ford Explorer. Firm cloth or leather seats, power everything, a telescoping steering column, and large spacious and adaptable seating are just a few of the reasons why the Explorer exceeds the expectations of drivers looking for an intelligent and comfortable ride.
4- Best-In-Class Safety Features
The Explorer’s side curtain airbags and inflatable seatbelts make it one of the safest vehicles on the road. When you add curve control, automated lane-assist, trailer sway control, and hill-start assistance, it's easy to see why the 2014 Explorer received a 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration.
5 - Loads Of Technology
The designers at Ford clearly explored all angles when they thought about technology. Some of the options available in the 2014 Explorer include a push button starter, a rear-view camera, automatic climate control, parallel parking assistance, adaptive cruise control, MyFord Touch voice-activated audio and console control, and even a 4WD Terrain Management system that adjusts traction control based on road conditions.
