Model Highlights

The 2010 Explorer is offered in three trim levels: XLT, Eddie Bauer and Limited, and in rear-, four- and full-time all-wheel drive. The Eddie Bauer edition is not available with an all-wheel drive powertrain.

Standard on all trims is a 4.0L V6 engine, which produces 210 horsepower @ 5100 rpm and 254 pounds-feet of torque @ 3700 rpm. It is mated to a 5-speed automatic with overdrive, and a 6-speed automatic transmission is available on all trims. A 4.6L V8 engine is optional across the range and cranks out 292 horsepower and 300 pounds-feet of torque.

Anti-lock brakes and AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Trailer Sway Control are standard on all Explorers, as are dual front, side seat and a full complement of airbags.

XLT trims come standard with 16-inch alloy wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, a stereo with MP3 capability, tilt steering wheel with integrated audio and climate controls, power driver's seat, power windows, mirrors, and locks and a split-folding second-row seat.

Eddie Bauer trims come standard with two-tone exterior accents, 17-inch alloy wheels, heated front seats, leather upholstery, third-row seating, satellite radio, SYNC communication system, Bluetooth, a 10-way power driver's seat and automatic headlights.

Limited trims come standard with 18-inch chrome-clad wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, an upgraded audio with 6-CD changer, power-folding third-row seats, a reverse-sensing system and heated front seats.

Notable options available on all trims include rear parking aid, remote engine start, trailer hitch receiver, running boards, a variety of sunroofs, adjustable pedals, a navigation system and DVD entertainment package.


Model News

The venerable Ford Explorer has been the best-selling SUV since its birth in 1990. The Explorer is more powerful, safer and more comfortable than ever. These days, the Explorer looks less like a large SUV and more like a station wagon and similar to many of its fellow car-utility vehicles. The Explorer sees few changes for 2010.


Value Writeup

The 2010 Explorer has the passenger-carrying capabilities of a mid-sized SUV combined with strong towing and off-road capabilities. Safety equipment includes standard stability control with a rollover sensor, as well as Ford's Trailer Sway Control, which works to keep a towed trailer in line once it begins to pitch. The Explorer also offers third-row seating for additional passenger capacity. The base rear-wheel-drive XLT starts under $30,000.

THESE SEAT COVERS ARE MADE OF HEAVIER THREAD AND ARE NOT COMPATIBLE WITH SEATS CONTAINING SIDE AIRBAGS. THE HEAVIER SEAT COVER COULD INTERFERE WITH FULL DEPLOYMENT OF THE AIRBAG IN THE EVENT OF A CRASH.

Crash Test Note
Results based on a 35 MPH frontal crash and 38.5 MPH side crash. Results are reported in a range of one to five stars, with five stars indicating the best crash protection for vehicles within the same weight class. This test used driver and passenger belts and airbags.

NHTSA Rollover Rating

Rollover Note
The Rollover Resistance Rating is an estimate of your risk of rolling over if you have a single vehicle crash. It does not predict the likelihood of that crash. The Rollover Resistance Rating utilizes a "fishhook" maneuver which is a series of abrupt turns at varying speeds to see how "top-heavy" a vehicle is. The more "top-heavy" the vehicle, the more likely it is to roll over. The lowest rated vehicles (1-star) are at least four times more likely to roll over than the highest rated vehicles (5-stars).
