Largely unchanged, the 2013 Ford Explorer is a FWD full-size crossover available with two different engines; a standard 3.5-liter V6 engine that produces 290 hp/255 lb-ft of torque and an optional 2.0-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder Ecoboost engine that produces 240 hp/270 lb-ft of torque. Transmission options are comprised of a standard 6-speed automatic and an optional 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Fuel mileage falls within an EPA estimated range of 17 mpg city to 28 mpg highway, depending on engine and transmission selection. Features include 4WD, terrain management system, seating for up to seven passengers, power liftgate, remote start, automatic climate control, hill descent control, rear view camera, voice activated SYNC�, active park assist, heated/cooled seats, navigation system, push-button start, and dual-headrest DVD players. Safety consists of a blind sport information system, collision warning with brake support, trailer sway control, electronic stability control, curve control, anti-lock braking (ABS), and an industry-first inflatable rear safety belts. The Explorer is backed by a 3-year/36,000-mile warranty.
The Ford Explorer has been rated one of the safest utility vehicles at any size or price; it's the first vehicle in the world to offer rear inflatable seatbelts. Curve control--a more advanced version of electronic stability control--is also a Ford exclusive. Ford's MyKey system helps parents reel in teen drivers.
The Explorer got a redesign in 2011 and additional powertrain options in 2012, but enters 2013 with no significant changes.
The Explorer is offered in base, XLT and Limited models, and no matter the model, it comes with three well-designed rows of seating and room for up to seven (the second row comes with two bucket seats for adults). While the third row is kid-sized, it's easier to fold than those on just about any other model--thanks to the simple, single-button power-folding system. Parents will also note that LATCH fasteners for child seats are included in the second-row outboard positions. And if you flip both the second and third rows forward, there's a cavernous (and well-shaped) 81 cubic feet of cargo space.
