Any new SUV is going to be expensive, and starting at $29,280, the Ford Explorer is no exception. If you know you want this model and still want to stick to a tight budget, you should look into getting a good deal on a used Ford Explorer. This vehicle was designed to be a slightly smaller and cheaper version of the Ford Expedition, so it is a good choice for people who want a lot of passenger and cargo space, but don't need quite so much room on the interior or the off-road capabilities of Ford's bigger SUVs. It is available in 4 different trims, the XLT, the XLT Sport, the Eddie Bauer and the Limited. Ford manufactures two engines that are compatible with the Ford Explorer, a 4 liter SOHC 12V V6 that runs at 210 horsepower with 254 pounds per foot of torque, and a 4.6 liter SOHC 24V V8 that runs at 292 horsepower with 315 pounds per foot of torque. Like most SUVs, the Ford Explorer has a poor fuel economy when compared to smaller cars, with only 14 miles per gallon in the city and around 20 miles per gallon on the highway. Featuring an exclusive Roll Stability Control System, this model is one of the safest SUVs available, so it's great for drivers who often take their kids in the car. Before you buy a used Ford Explorer, you should make sure you are getting the best possible deal possible.
