Ford Delivers a Doozy of an SUV with 2017 Explorer

Are you perusing the full-size crossover class for your next vehicular purchase? Well, if so, we here at Santa Monica Ford Lincoln have a sneaking suspicion you'll find your fit in ours, the 2017 Explorer.

Why, though?

Here now to provide some context on the matter are the pundits at MotorWeek; join them in the clip below:

A shining example of Ford's mechanical mastery, the Explorer's base engine -- a 3.5-liter V6 -- is flat-out fantastic.

Matching to a six-speed automatic transmission, the entry-level engine is good for 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. It receives front-wheel drive as standard, while an all-wheel system is available as an option.

We'd note that we appreciate the fuel economy of this engine, too; front-drive models, for instance, are rated at a respectable 20 mpg combined (17 city/24 highway).

If you'd like to meet this versatile utility vehicle "in the metal," or wish to put one through its paces on the open road, we encourage you to pay us a visit at our Santa Monica, CA location. Upon your stopover, we'll be sure to set you up with a test drive in the Explorer, or any other Ford model that's garnered your interest.
