2012 Ford Explorer 4WD
None of us should be surprised to learn that Ford’s new 2012 Explorer 4WD is among the best, most affordable mid-size SUV’s. With a comfortable, cushy interior, great handling and respectable fuel economy, this Explorer is family friendly. The 4WD model, does not offer the EcoBoost engine – a feature auto reviewers love to nitpick at. It seems the extra weight of the 4WD makes the greener engine impractical. But even with all the plusses associated with this grand old man of SUVs, auto-pros still find fault.
First of all, the Explorer was re-designed last year. Gone now are some of the “trucky” features and, in place of the box-on-truck architecture, are the running gears of a Taurus. Some say the 2012 Explorer 4WD is suitable only for the soccer mom crowd. Of course, the performance of the Explorer, particularly the 4WD models, makes it much, much more.
There are three trim packages available, including the Base, the XLT and the top-of-the-line Limited. All are available in 4WD and feature an all-wheel-drive system that includes technology to effectively deal with inclement weather and quickly changing driving conditions. more
