Ah, Ford’s Explorer. It’s one of America’s favorite crossovers by far, winning the hearts and minds of those across the country with its significant charms—and the 2017 Limited model is certainly no different. It comes with a heck of an engine and all the refinements you could hope for from a modern vehicle.
This crossover doesn’t mess around once it hits the road. Instead, it comes packing a seriously powerful 2.3L engine that creates a wonderful 280 horses at 5,000 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 310-lb.-ft. of torque at 3,000 RPM. But that’s not all—the EPA estimates that you’ll average a 19 city / 27 highway MPG. Thus, fuel costs will be kept to a respectable level.
The 2017 Explorer Limited doesn’t rely solely on its engine power to impress. It proudly sports a host of comfort and convenience features. Among them are a SiriusXM AM/FM/HD satellite radio for relief from the banality of terrestrial radio, as well as a built-in GPS navigation system to get you safely to your destination at all times.
