Ford Explorer Reviews

Ford's 7-passenger SUV since 1990

Ford’s mid-size sport utility that’s been on the market since 1990, the Explorer is one of the original SUVs to hit the scene. Back then, this 7-passenger family hauler was a gas-guzzler; today, the mid-size SUV is more streamlined and efficient thanks to Ford's EcoBoost engines. The 2019 Explorer is still in its 5th-generation since 2011, so a redesign is long overdue. For luxury shoppers, the Lincoln equivalent is the all-new Nautilus SUV arriving in 2019.
