Ford Explorer Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2013 4dr SUV turbocharged 365hp 3.5L V6
6-speed shiftable automatic AWD
We initially went in looking for a commuter vehicle with High mpg... but the sport they had jumped out at us and we were on the hunt for one... in the wife's daily 45 mile drive to work she's averaging 20 mpg which is comparable to the Audi's 4 cylinder and my truck's 8 cylinder.
2011 4dr SUV 290-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic AWD Best in Class all that needs to be said.
2011 4dr SUV 290-hp 3.5L V6 6-sp shiftable automatic FWD For such a beast I'm pleased with the gas mileage. I average 19-21 in almost all city/suburban stoplight and rush hour driving. Highway mileage drops fast if you drive over 70. Keep it under 70 and I get about 24.
2003 4dr SUV 292-hp 4.6L V8 6-sp automatic 4WD w/low range For a mid-sized SUV, fuel economy is still as good or better than many 2008 cross-overs, and has all of the luxury features I like.

2007 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range Not really bad, but not that great either. To be expected for a vehicle this heavy
2006 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range 13-15 mpg around town, ouch!
2005 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic RWD Could be better
2005 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range wish it was higher. Part of our problem is that wanted and bought a model with the towing package. The lower gearing does impact fuel economy
2004 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range Gets poor fuel economy, but that is expected from a large SUV
2004 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic AWD 13 - 14.5 for a V6! Ridiculous.
2002 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range 17 miles to the gallon on a six.
2002 4dr SUV 210-hp 4.0L V6 5-sp automatic 4WD w/low range For a low output V6 (210hp) I would expect better gas mileage for this 4,400 suv. I average 14 to 18 mpg per tank depending on mix of city/highway.
