Reviews the 2013 Ford Explorer


The Ford Explorer continues to widen the already-formidable gap between it and competing SUVs, thanks in part to the Sport model. With its 365-horsepower, turbocharged 3.5-liter V-6, the all-wheel-drive Sport offers respectable fuel economy and dynamic handling; reviewer Kelsey Mays calls it a "performance bargain" at $42,000. Still, nagging shortcomings persist, including poor forward visibility; a tight, difficult-to-access third row; and the albatross of the unreliable MyFord Touch. Bottom line: The Explorer is indisputably the most popular kid in class, but get to know some other classmates before making it your BFF.
