2017 Ford Explorer Earns High Praise Autotrader Pundits

September 9th, 2021 by

Are you searching for a full-size SUV for your next daily driver? Well, if so, we here at Tuttle-Click Ford would love the opportunity to match you up with ours, the 2017 Explorer.

And what is it that this big-bodied beaut brings to the table?

The vehicular gurus at Autotrader explain all in the clip below. Have at it right here:

In base form, the Explorer receives a 3.5-liter V6 engine as standard. Teaming with a six-speed automatic transmission, this six-banger produces a healthy 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque, and is available with your choice of either front- or all-wheel drive.

The range-topping Sport and Platinum trims, meanwhile, up the ante significantly. Outfitted with a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, these models make a massive 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Better still, all-wheel drive is standard.

If you’d like to meet this mind-bending machine “in the metal,” or wish to put one through its paces on the open road, we encourage you to pay us a visit at our Irvine, CAlocation. Upon your stopover, we’ll be sure to set you up with a test drive in the Explorer, or any other Ford model you might’ve had in mind.
