MotorWeek Exalts the 2017 Ford Explorer

October 30th, 2017 by

Are you in the market for a full-size SUV? Well, if so, we here at Sam Leman Ford Bloomington believe you should have a good, long look at ours, the 2017 Explorer.

Why” you wonder.

The industry experts at MotorWeek are here to offer an explanation; tag along with them in the clip below:

The Explorer’s mid-level engine — a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder — is without a doubt one of our favorites.

Optional with the Base and XLT models, the turbo-four joins with a six-speed automatic transmission to produce a healthy 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Standard fare includes front-wheel drive; an all-wheel platform, meanwhile, may be had as an option.

We dig the fuel economy of this drivetrain, too; when had with front-wheel drive, for example, it’s expected to return 22 mpg combined (19 city/28 highway).

To learn more about this fun family hauler, or to take one for a spin, we suggest you set a course for our Bloomington, IL location. Our automotive aces are on hand to address your every query about the Explorer, or any other Ford model within the current lineup.
