How would we compare changes to the 2012 Ford Explorer to the drastic overhaul seen in the 2011 Ford Explorer? Well, the 2011 model has garnered twice as many sales as the 2010 model. And, Veterans Ford expects updates to the 2012 Ford Explorer to garner even greater attention.
The feature Veterans Ford believes you'll be most excited about is the new 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine, which integrates turbocharging- and direct injection technologies for a fun driving experience, and a small engine size for optimal fuel efficiency. While the 2012 Explorer is the first Ford model in North America to feature the leading-edge technology, the vehicle is expected to knock the competition out of the water in terms of fuel efficiency, leading the entire class with 28 mpg/highway. To put this into better perspective, the 2011 Ford Explorer delivers up to 25 mpg /highway. Other gains include:- Modern, aerodynamic design defined by a three-bar, chrome-accented grill
- Tinted glass power windows
- Standard 17" wheels/optional 18" alloy wheels
- Redesigned dash and gauges
- Touchscreen navigation system
- Wider moon roof
- Variable-displacement air conditioning compressor
- Electric-power-assisted steering
- Unique 6F35 six-speed automatic transmission
