FORD EXPLORER,

Overview

The Ford Explorer is an OK midsize SUV. The Explorer is built on a new platform that improves its handling, makes it feel airy inside and boosts its towing capacity. Its engines include a lively and fuel-efficient turbocharged base four-cylinder are among the most powerful in the class. The Explorer now comes with only six seats.

Inside

The Explorer is a three-row SUV that seats six people in its standard configuration. The rear seats include a pair of captain's chairs in the middle row and a split-folding bench with room for two in the third row. An optional second-row bench seat is available in select models, which expands the seating capacity to seven. Inside, the Explorer feels broad and airy. There is enough legroom in all three rows for adults, though the low placement of the third-row cushion could be uncomfortable for taller passengers. The second-row seats fold and slide forward. The Ford Explorer has two complete sets of LATCH car-seat connectors in the second row and two complete sets in the third row.

Driving

The Explorer has composed handling, with easy steering and a comfortable ride. Just as with other three-row SUVs, there is some body roll when cornering, though many critics also feel that this Ford is more athletic than many of its competitors. The redesigned boasts improved handling compared to the previous generation, it is now rear-wheel-drive based (older models were front-wheel drive). Properly equipped Explorers can tow up to 5,600 pounds. Not only is that significantly more than the 2019 Explorer, but it is also a higher towing capacity than what most midsize SUVs offer.
