The all-new 2011 Ford Explorer is available in three trim series levels: base, XLT and Limited. Each offering presents a robust array of standard features, with a class-leading selection of additional convenience and connectivity options so a buyer can tailor a new Explorer to their needs and desires.

The theme of the all-new Explorer dynamics development was balance. The team sought to provide an engaging driver experience in harmony with the extended breadth of 4WD capability to build driver confidence.

The shift to a unibody construction platform enabled a reduction in road noise and significantly decreased Explorer body roll in dynamic cornering situations.

Explorer's available advanced 2.0-liter EcoBoost I-4 delivers the power of a normally aspirated V-6 without compromising four-cylinder fuel economy. Aimed at the SUV buyer whose top priority is fuel economy, this turbocharged and intercooled I-4 engine delivers 237 and 250 lb.-ft. of torque.

Explorer's standard powertrain combines front-wheel drive with a 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, delivering an estimated 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque.

Each Explorer engine is paired with a unique six-speed automatic transmission, combining lowered initial gears for improved off-the-line acceleration and higher gearing for improved efficiency at lower engine rpm when cruising. Explorer V6 models are available with an intelligent 4WD system that adds terrain management.

The new SUV features more head and shoulder room, three rows of flexible seating, and room for everything families want to take along on their adventures.

All-new 2011 Ford Explorer Morphs from SUV to Crossover

The Ford Explorer was the darling of Sport Utility Vehicles during the SUV craze of the 1990s and mid 2000s. By 2005, however, rising fuel prices, some bad publicity, and changing consumer tastes caused sales to plummet.

02/12 Dave Van Sickle in Down the Road
2011 Ford Explorer a Crossover Vehicle to Match Driver Demands

One of the first things you'll notice when driving the 2011 Ford Explorer is that it doesn't drive like a truck anymore -- because it no longer is one. And that's pretty much okay with everybody.
