Ford Explorer Sport 4WDPublished by Toronto Mike on September 12, 2013 @ 16:36 in Automobile Test Drives, Ford Explorer Test Drive
They call the colour of the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport I borrowed 'Ruby Red Metallic'. I drove it for a week during which I merged my Toronto apartment with my wife's Mississauga townhouse in our new southwest Toronto house.
The retail price is $48,299 but this fully loaded model had $5,230 worth of extras. The majority of that money went toward the dual panel moonroof, the adaptive cruise control / collision warning system and the voice activated navigation system. In other words, this $53,529 truck is out of my price range, but damn did it come in handy.
I mentioned how much stuff it held for the move, but I haven't yet told you how comfortable, fuel-efficient and roomy it is. There are seven comfy seats and the ride is always smooth. If you're in the mid-sized SUV market, you have to test drive the new Explorer.
