Switched from Jeep Grand Cherokee to Ford Explorer

by from St. Augustine, FL on December 12, 2013

Recently traded my 08 Jeep Grand Cherokee Overland (4x4, HEMI V8), and purchased 2014 Ford Explorer Sport with 3.5L V6 with twin turbo. Black exterior with black trims and black interior is a bit too dark (and mean looking), and wish Ford offered a lighter color (white) leather for the inside... The car rides very tight (thanks to the Sport upgrades) and more comfortable than my old Jeep. I appreciate the extra large cargo area (due to the 3rd row seats) to fit all my gears plus some. MyFordTouch/SYNC is ok, not great, but not as bad as some people say about it. Turning circle can be better, in my opinion. I recommend you test drive the Explorer on city streets, highways and mall/store parking lots.

Explorer enthusiasm

by from Fairfax County, Virginia on January 30, 2014

High level computer display and capability. A fun drive and beautiful exterior and interior. This is my third explorer with a previous 1997 and a 2004 that is still in excellent condition.

Really enjoyed the.

by from Newark, N.J. on January 15, 2014

The car ride very smooth. It handles the snow. You stay in control of the SUV in cautious weather. I love the easy access to on the steering wheel for the driver,as well as the on star feature.

Great ride for an SUV! Roomy interior in both first and second row seats!! i love the clean lines of the interior - easy to clean. Gas mileage is as reported so far. the Limited model with the 302A package gives you plenty of options and comfort. The voice control of the Climate, Radio, Navigation, Phone is great feature (once you get use to it)!

Wow of all Wow's! Powerful engine, all the electronic features are champ in the league! I bought it and drove it and it runs smoothly that I wasn't aware that I was speeding. The cruise control helps me from getting a ticket! It sped up on hilly interstate where I live! my friends rode with me, commended how wonderful the ride was. I wake up in the morning looking forward driving my Explorer "Whitey".
