Love my explorer Sport

We are a family of 4 and we were looking for a 7 seater SUV so that we have more room for the family and friends. We test drove most of the cars and we were tied with Highlander and Explorer. We liked the highlander too but loved the styling of the explorer sport, its power and its roomy 3rd row and trunk. Even adults can comfortably seat in the 3rd row during long trips that was a huge difference compared to other cars. Toyota highlander lacked trunk space. The explorer drives great and had great power to make it a fun ride. What i love 1. Great Drive 2. Roomy Interior 3. Roomy 3rd Row 4. Comfy seats 5. Roomy Trunk Space 6. Love the ambient lighting 7. Panoramic sun roof 8. 500W speaker and wow its great 9. Sync 3 with Apple car play and Android play 10. Love the 2nd row buckets Things that could be improved 1. The DVD headrest is too expensive 2. The front camera is not self cleaning so if its gets dirty then you have to clean it manually 3. Sun shades for the rear seat. There is a privacy glass though 5. Interior color options for sport. 6. Platinum console for Sport. 7. Rain sensing wipers

I had a 2011 xlt before and loved it and swore to buy another one when the time is coming. well after 200000kms I decided to get a 2017 xlt again. unfortunately the new one is not as comfortable as the old one was. I used to have leather in the old one and I chose material this time, but I regret it. very hard seat cushions and on longer drives it gives me back pain. everything else is still the same, except the Sync is android not Microsoft based now. overall is a great SUV, but I wish I had my old seats. the rest is great.

I've got 1000 miles on my new Ford Explorer and overall, the family is happy with it. It drives very nicely, more like a car than a truck. It is very comfortable. Plenty of seating and storage. My only regret is that I didn't pay extra for the lane change warning system that tells you when there is a car next to you...not that visibility is bad, just that I rented another one and it was a nice feature to have.

This vehicle has a very attractive and functional design. The blind spot of this vehicle is almost non existent; compared to the Nissan equivalent or Toyota's. Ford Sync allows for near effortless connection to Iphone. I owned a nissans before; therefore, I can attest to the durability of those vehicles. However, they start to get a bit shaky after 60,000 miles or so. Comfort in mind; the explorer is very comfortable. Controls are accessible yet discrete. No I do not have the premium infotainment brand, the cost to value was not there for me. Please get the warranty for the electronically components. most are upgraded from previous models, therefore, a buyer should realistically expect breakdowns. As with any newly introduced system, they have bugs undiscovered in the beta phase. I've got a Two drive. I previously owned a 4 wheel drive truck, in Alaska. I went off the beaten path on many occasions in every type of weather. And I towed a boat on dirt, water slicked trails. All without engaging by four wheel drive, (Titan). Used it once to negotiate an ice covered hill in western Canada; hauling 4,500 Lbs of payload. I destroyed the darn transfer case. The explorer is perfect for a family with 2-4 children, age ranging between 0-14. After that you may need to consider a Full size SUV for comfort.
