Which Used Explorer is Right For You?

The Ford Explorer is the vehicle that arguably started the SUV craze. Until it came along, SUVs were only for serious off-road geeks and weekend Hamptonites.

The Explorer was different when it debuted in 1990. It was more car-like with four doors, a hard top, and real back seats. You could switch in and out of four-wheel drive without getting out of the car and it was powered by a relatively thrifty V6 engine, which meant the Explorer wasn’t very expensive to buy or to run.

It’s big cargo area meant that you didn’t need to own a truck on the side just to do simple home repairs.

That has made used Ford Explorers popular as well. Ford updated the Explorer throughout the years to keep pace with the times. Here’s a rundown of the past ten model years of the Ford Explorers.
