The Ford Explorer was introduced to the North American market in 1990 as a replacement for the Ford Bronco II, and – unlike the Bronco II it replaced – brought the SUV to the attention of buyers around the the world, turning the SUV from a special-interest vehicle into an everyday driver, securing the SUV as a staple in the consumer-driven world of automobiles. The Explorer today comes in three different models: the Explorer, the XLT and the Limited. All three models are roughly the same size and weight, which makes finding auto transportation for an Explorer much easier than, say, a Expedition XLT.
The basic Explorer model is aptly named the Explorer. Like the other two models, it comes with a 3.5L V6 engine with the SelectShift automatic shifting system, an advanced roll stability system, a decent tow package (though inferior to the Limited), hill start assist as well as gathering an impressive 18/25 mpg (city/highway). Most auto shipping companies group the basic Explorer in with common cars, as they weigh little more and are only a few inches larger than the largest full-size sedan. The Explorer costs $28,870 MSRP.
The XLT also features a 3.5L V6 engine with the SelectShift system, but comes with Sirius XM Satellite radio and a reverse sensing system that pushes the cost of the XLT to $32,345 – those, as well as other, more specialized features that you can discuss with your local salesman. The Limited, which costs $37,855, comes packaged with the MyFord Touch system as well as the Sync system. Not to mention heated front seats, Intelligent Access with a push-start system, remote start and dual-zone temperature control. You can find more information about the Explorer here.
