The Ford Explorer has long been one of the best-selling SUVs in the market. A capable tow vehicle and off-roader, it also offers the generous interior space, comfort features and safety technologies necessary for day-to-day tasks.The 7-passenger Explorer is available in both front- and four-wheel drive configurations, with a choice of four trim levels: Base, XLT, Limited and Sport. A 290-hp 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine and six-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift manual mode are standard on all trims. The 4x4 models get a user-friendly terrain management system, while an efficient 237-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection is available for FWD models. Explorer Base trims are well-equipped with 17-inch wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, MP3 capability and MyFord driver connect technology; XLT trims add 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps and a reverse sensing system, along with a USB port, satellite radio and the SYNC communications and entertainment system. Limited trims are further outfitted with 20-inch aluminum wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, leather upholstery, HD radio, Intelligent Access with push-button start and a rearview camera. Standard safety features on every Explorer include AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control function, traction control, anti-lock disc brakes and a tire pressure monitor, as well as Ford's MyKey owner control feature and six airbags. Industry-first second-row inflatable seatbelts are available on XLT and Limited models, packaged with a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert; additional options include Active Park Assist and adaptive cruise control with collision warning.The Ford Explorer carries over with minimal changes for 2013. A front passenger knee airbag is now standard on all models, while XLT trims get a six-way power front passenger seat. Additionally, Lane Departure Warning and Lane Keep Assist are offered on the Limited trim for this model year, and the available high-intensity discharge (HID) headlamps now include automatic high beam control. The big news for 2013 is the addition of the high performance Sport trim with a 365-hp twin-turbo V6, sport suspension, 20-inch wheels and unique sport trim inside and out.

Roomy SUV with contemporary technology.
 
Introduction
 
The Ford Explorer is one the best seven-passenger sport-utility vehicles available.It delivers the function and family friendly features of a minivan with the rugged appeal of an SUV.

New for 2013 is an Explorer Sport trim with a twin-turbocharged version of Ford's 3.5-liter V6 engine, a sport-tuned suspension and all-wheel-drive.Using Premium gas, Explorer Sport makes up to 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.

New options on 2013 Explorer Limited models include a lane departure warning system, heated steering wheel and a power tilt-and-telescoping steering column.All 2013 Explorer models come standard with a front-passenger knee airbag.

This latest generation of the Ford Explorer, introduced for 2011, features a one-piece, unibody design rather than a ladder-type truck frame with a separate, bolted on body.The result is more car-like driving dynamics, as well as significant weight savings, which translates to better fuel economy.

Powering all 2013 Ford Explorer models except the Sport is 3.5-liter V6 that makes 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission.Front-wheel drive is standard, four-wheel drive is optional.Although the Explorer does not come with low-range gearing, 4WD versions of the Explorer get Ford's Terrain Management system, which allows the driver to select from four modes for optimal traction in a variety of driving environments.It also includes hill start assist and hill descent control.

Fuel economy with the base V6 engine on front-wheel-drive Explorer models is an EPA-estimated 17/24 mpg City/Highway, or 17/23 mpg City/Highway on 4WD models.

Even with regular all-season tires, the Explorer will blast through sand or traverse deep ditches and steep hills, no problem.We know.We did it.And it has the smoothest ride we've encountered over such terrain.

For maximum fuel economy, front-wheel-drive versions of the 2013 Ford Explorer can be equipped with an optional 2.0-liter, four cylinder EcoBoost engine.It has more power than the standard V6 in the previous-generation Explorer, with 240 horsepower and 270 pound-feet of torque, and delivers an EPA-estimated 20/28 mpg City/Highway.

The 2.0 EcoBoost is sufficiently powerful, and acceptable if mileage is the absolute priority.Still, depending on gas prices and how many miles you drive, it can take time to recover the four-cylinder's $1,000 up-front cost in fuel savings.We prefer the standard 290-horspower V6 with its smooth, strong acceleration.

Explorer's chassis is super rigid, which not only makes for great crash-test scores, but also a quiet cabin, excellent ride quality and solid handling that belies the Explorer's considerable size.

Inside, there is plenty of legroom in the second row, real space for passengers in the third, and up to 80.7 cubic-feet of cargo space.It can be reconfigured in seconds, with split rear seats that fold with a button on each side and bounce back up with the pull of a lever.The interior is smartly styled and well finished.The materials and build quality are quite good.

The base Explorer comes well equipped.The upgraded Limited trim is leather-upholstered, with heated-seats and offered with premium audio, navigation and rear-seat DVD entertainment.The MyFordTouch interface is optional, but can be cumbersome and at least a little annoying.

Other SUVs to consider in this class include the Buick Enclave, Chevrolet Traverse, Dodge Durango, GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot or Mazda CX-9.All provide similar or slightly better cargo space, but lack the history and cachet of the Explorer nameplate.

 
Lineup
 
The 2013 Ford Explorer comes in four variants: Base, LXT, Limited and Sport.All models except the Sport come with a choice front-wheel drive or four-wheel-drive and are powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that makes 290 hp and 255 pound-feet of torque.Fuel economy is an EPA-estimated17/24 mpg City/Highway and 17/23 mpg City/Highway on 4WD models.An optional 2.0-liter Ecoboost inline-four-cylinder engine is optional on these same models, which produces 240 hp and 270 lb.-ft.of torque with an EPA-estimated 20/28 mpg City/Highway.

Explorer ($29,100) comes standard with fabric upholstery, air conditioning, a six-way power driver seat with manual recline, a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel with audio controls, power windows, locks and outside mirrors, a trip computer, 60/40 split-folding second-row seats, 50/50 split third-row seats, a six-speaker audio system with single CD player and auxiliary audio jack, rear privacy glass, roof rails and 17-inch steel wheels with wheel covers.Options include a tow package ($570) and a Sync with MyFord pakage ($295), which adds voice activation, Bluetooth and SiriusSX Satellite radio capability with a six-month subscription.

Explorer XLT ($32,680) adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel and shift knob, Ford's Sync voice activation with satellite radio capability, a USB audio port, a keyless entry touchpad on the driver's door, automatic headlamps, rear parking sensors and 18-inch alloy wheels.

Explorer Limited ($38,100) gets leather upholstery, heated front seats, dual-zone automatic climate control, a 12-speaker Sony audio system with HD radio, power adjustable pedals with memory, a cargo net, a rearview camera, remote start, a 110-volt outlet, 20-inch painted aluminum wheels, and the MyFordTouch touchscreen interface.Options include second-row captain's chairs and a 301A package that bundles ventilated front seats, an eight-way power passenger seat, heated steering wheel with power tilt-and-telescoping function, navigation, a power-folding third-row seat and a power liftgate.

Explorer Sport ($40,780) comes standard with four-wheel drive and is powered by a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 that makes 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft.of torque (using premium fuel).EPA fuel economy estimates are 16/22 mpg City/Highway.Standard features include sport front seats with fabric upholstery, unique interior and exterior trim, and many of the standard features found on the Limited model.

Safety features include Ford's Curve Control, which monitors vehicle speed going into a corner and applies braking to individual wheels as needed, as well as MyKey, which allows owners to set limits for vehicle speed and stereo volume.Other standard safety features include front side airbags, side curtain airbags, a front passenger knee airbag, stability control, traction control and trailer sway control.

Optional safety features include a blind spot warning system with cross-traffic alert on Explorer XLT models and above.Limited and Sport models also get an available lane-departure warning and keeping system, as well as forward collision warning.

 
Walkaround
 
The Ford Explorer is rugged but refined, familiar but fresh.It's a foot longer than the Ford Edge crossover, a few inches shorter than the Dodge Durango SUV and about eight inches shorter than the Chevy Traverse.Yet it's several inches wider than all of them.

Beautiful headlights complement the graceful fenders and transform the inherently square nose.The amber indicators sweep back like narrow wings atop tidy main projector beams.The plastic grille is gray on the base Explorer, body-colored on the XLT and satin-chrome on the Limited.The hood looks short from the side, but long when looking straight down it.It's got two parallel humps and a scoop in the center.Rear taillights are LED, and also look good.

The window outline is clean, bold and symmetrical, with blackened A-, B-, and D-pillars, and body-colored C-pillars that slant down and back and impart forward motion to the vehicle.With standard dark privacy glass, from the shoulders up, in white at least, the Explorer looks like a sleek yacht.

You'll also see design cues from other Ford vehicles.The fender flares are inspired by the Mustang and body sides follow the lines of the Taurus.The three-bar grille strikes resemble those of the Range Rover, which was once-upon-a-time a member of the Ford family.

Wheels are 17-inch steel with plastic covers on the base Explorer, 10-spoke 18-inch painted aluminum on the XLT, and 20-inch painted aluminum with spokes like flower petals on the Limited.The optional 20-inch polished aluminum wheels have spokes like shriveling flower petals or crab pincers, and don't do justice to the car.

 
Interior
 
Fit and finish inside the Explorer is excellent, and we particularly like the Limited's leather seats.

The front seats sit up high, which is good because the hood looks long from the driver's seat.The slanted center stack has a clean design and uses stylish satin-finish trim materials.The doors have metal speaker grilles, and curve into the dash panel.There's a big glovebox with a shelf, leather grab handles and armrests on Explorers with leather interior, and long door pockets with space for a bottle.

One reason we like the base model is its conventional gauges, relatively simple 4.2-inch LCD screen at the top of the center stack, and familiar mechanical knobs below.The base Explorer doesn't come with the MyFordTouch driver connect technology, and neither does the XLT, unless it's chosen as an option.

Cars equipped with MyFordTouch have two driver-configurable LCD screens in front of the driver on either side a big speedometer, and an 8-inch color touch screen at the top of the center stack.The screens come in four quadrants and colors: yellow for phone, red for audio, blue for climate and red for navigation.You have to scroll through a lot of stuff to get information, for example engine temperature, and even after you figure it all out, it can take your focus off the road to perpetually configure.

It can all be a bit overwhelming, as many of the features and functions can be adjusted in four separate ways: by voice command, by thumb buttons on the steering-wheel spokes, by touching the display screen itself or by using the buttons in the switch stack below, should you choose to do it the old-fashioned way.

We found the voice recognition system to be problematic.During one test, we said, 'Climate,' and it replied, 'Climb in.' We said, 'Seventy-two degrees,' and it replied, 'Eighty-two degrees.'

In terms of spaciousness, the Ford Explorer cabin doesn't disappoint.Second-row legroom measures an impressive 40 inches; third-row legroom comes in at 33.2 inches.Because the rear doors swing wide and open easily, and because the second-row seat flips forward in a heartbeat, reaching the rear row is an easy climb, even for adults.

Cargo volume measures 21 cubic feet behind the third row (comparable to trunk space in a big sedan, and among the best in Explorer's class), 43.8 cubic feet behind the second row (comparable to a compact SUV or crossover with the rear seats folded), and 80.7 behind the front seats.The cargo space is substantially less than what's available in GM's longer trio of crossovers (Chevrolet Traverse, GMC Acadia, Buick Enclave), but competitive with the rest of Explorer's competition.There's a little bit more maximum cargo volume in a Dodge Durango or a Honda Pilot.

Still, it's very easy to change configurations in the Explorer.The second seat folds like magic at the touch of a button on each side, bouncing back up with the pull of a lever.

Cubby storage adds convenience.A lidded bin in front of the shift lever is designed to hold two cellphones, and cup holders are provided to the right of the shifter.

 
Driving Impression
 
The Ford Explorer has the practicality, function and family-friendly features of good minivans, with a more rugged appeal and real off-road capability.

The optional 2.0 EcoBoost engine packs significant wallop for its size.With a peak of 240 horsepower, the 2.0 EcoBoost makes 50 fewer horsepower than Explorer's standard 3.5-liter V6, or 17 percent less.Yet the four-cylinder is nearly 50 percent smaller than the V6 by displacement.It has more torque than the V6, and better EPA mileage ratings.

Yet the problem with the 2.0 EcoBoost engine in the Explorer is that a lot of drivers will be keeping it floored a lot of the time.It often seems like it's working really hard, with a lot of sound and fury to minimal effect.If fuel-economy is a very high priority, the 2.0 EcoBoost will get the job done.But we'd guess most owners would be happier with the 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter V6.

Ford's dual-overhead cam, all-aluminum V6 is quite efficient in is own right.Mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with optional manual shifting, the V6 is smooth and responsive, with good acceleration and plenty of torque to maintain 80 mph on an uphill freeway, after a smooth and welcome kickdown to fifth gear.

We drove nearly 200 miles in a V6 Explorer, mostly at about 60 mph on casual two-lanes with about a dozen freeway miles running uphill to 80 mph, and averaged about 17 mpg.Before we got on the throttle on the freeway, we saw a 20-mpg average.

Ford put all the engineering effort it could muster into the Explorer, and got the ride, handling, and NVH (noise, vibration and harshness) results it hoped for.The rigid chassis and careful tuning of the independent suspension produce a superb all-around ride.It takes corners and undulations flat, and the speed-sensitive electric power steering allows it to turn relatively tight and quick.

We sampled the AWD Explorer on an off-road course, and we've never tested anything off road that absorbed deep ruts and huge humps so smoothly.We're talking 10 mph here.It was as if the Explorer had a few extra feet of travel in the suspension.

The Explorer's optional all-wheel drive system has no transfer case.That saves weight, and minimizes the fuel-mileage penalty that invariably comes with AWD.Instead, the Explorer maximizes off-road traction with a fancy electronic-control system called Terrain Management.

There are four modes to the system, which the driver sets with a knob behind the shift lever.In the Normal mode, on dry pavement, the vehicle runs at about 90 percent power to the front wheels, 10 percent to the rear.Torque shifts to the rear as needed, if the front wheels lose traction and can't do as much work.Normal mode is what you'll use most of the time, rain or shine.

The Snow/Gravel mode allows less wheelspin, provides conservative throttle control, and enables earlier transmission upshifts.This should help stabilize handling, making the Explorer easier to control in sloppy conditions, though you'll still need to exercise care when slowing down.

The Sand mode provides more aggressive throttle, holds the transmission in gear longer, and desensitizes traction control.Because, unlike in snow, to make progress in sand you need wheelspin.Mud/Ruts allows more torque as throttle increases.Stability control is desensitized to help maintain momentum over soft or uneven surfaces.

Terrain Management also includes Hill Descent Control, which proved itself on a steep downhill on the off-road course, holding the Explorer's speed to 4 mph without driver input.It's proven itself in many vehicles we've tested, including many Land Rovers.On an icy hill, it could save your life or at least help you avoid crashing and damaging your vehicle.If you think you'll need this feature, it's worth learning how to use it most effectively.

Of course, the standard front-drive Explorer and its various traction enhancing systems do an excellent job in their own right, even in a driving snow, if the travel surface is pavement.

The Explorer will tow 5000 pounds when equipped with the tow package, and includes trailer sway control, which works with the stability control.There's also a rearview camera with zoom, which will guide you to position the hitch ball directly under the trailer hitch cap, and make you feel like an astronaut docking his spacecraft.

 
Summary
 
The Ford Explorer is large, good-looking and relatively fuel efficient crossover SUV with a long heritage that comes nicely equipped at any trim level.

Sam Moses filed this report to NewCarTestDrive.com after his test drive of the Ford Explorer near Portland, Oregon, with Laura Burstein reporting from Los Angeles.
