2014 Explorer Research and Review

If there's any other SUV in the world as well-recognizable and ubiquitous as the Ford Explorer, I'd like to know about it. And while it's changed a lot since the '90s, it's still just as capable, just as reliable and just as commanding as it ever was. Buyers shopping for a seven-passenger SUV will find that its attractive and comfortable cabin, smooth ride and striking exterior leave little to be desired. This year's 2014 Ford Explorer offers new features like standard automatic headlights, heated second-row seats and adaptive cruise control. Other key features include new color choices, the latest generation of the SYNC infotainment system with MyFord Touch, a 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine and standard trailer sway control with AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability Control.

The 2014 Ford Explorer is available in Phoenix in Base, XLT, Limited and Sport trim levels. With the exception of the Sport trim level, all Explorers come standard with a 3.5-liter V6 that cranks out 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. The Sport comes standard with a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that generates 365-horsepower and 360 lb.-ft. of torque, and is perfect for shoppers seeking higher performance capabilities. Ford Explorer buyers in Phoenix that simply want better fuel economy should take a look at the turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which delivers 240 horsepower, 270 lb.-ft. of torque and best-in-class fuel economy.

In Ford Explorer reviews from the likes of Edmunds.com and Cars.com, you'll note that they compliment the full-size SUV for its long list of standard and optional amenities. Expect features and tech like the following: keyless entry, rear parking sensors, SYNC and MyFord Touch, a rearview camera, Bluetooth, dual-zone climate control, leather seats, heated seats, navigation, a 12-speaker Sony audio system, full power accessories, a 50/50 split-fold rear seat and much more. The Sport trim level adds extras like an upgraded engine, a sport-tuned suspension and special interior and exterior accents.
