Reviewed: 2006 Ford Explorer

4dr SUV 292-horsepower 4.6L V8 6-speed automatic 4WD w/low range

Why the 2006 Ford Explorer?

Cargo capacity

I can tow a 7000 lb horse trailer with a mid-size SUV! Right sized vehicle with the tow capacity I needed

Powertrain performance

I can tow 7000 lbs of horse trailer and carry a large package in the interior. Trip mileage, sans the trailer, is in the 20-22 mpg range. good acceleration and the 6-speed transmission is pretty smooth.

Feature availability

Heated memory seats, flat load floor, easy fold seats in second and third row. Audiophile radio with Satellite is great! Everything still works after 2+ years.

Past personal experience

I have always had good success with Ford trucks in terms of capability, reliability and dependability.

Discounts & incentives

They made the Eddie Bauer very affordable off the lot.
