3.5 L V-6 twin-turbo is awesome! The car hauls! Interior is very nice and quite. Smooth ride. Great for a long road trip. Lots of feature at a decent price. I would put up it's features, performance, and price up against any foreign or domestic car/SUV. If you have not owned a domestic car before, give this one a try. You will love it...and have a lot of extra cash in your pocket I was a BMW guy for 25+ yrs . I owned a 328, M3, and X5. This is a great SUV. The Ford Explorer Platinum is really quick for a heavy SUV. Take a test and and you can decide.

Traded my Escalade ESV Premium and MUCH HAPPIER

After frustration in owning 3 successive Escalades that had the ride of a broken tractor and the ergonomics of a cracked brick, I'm much happier with my Explorer Platinum. The ride is a world better, the human factors engineering is far better and the controls fit me naturally. At 6'6" I was concerned about headroom and shoulder room, but the Explorer comes through in spades. The ride is almost as good as my Lexus LS460 which was my favorite car ever. Despite the Cadillac dealer trying to always convince me that the Escalades shortcomings didn't matter, they mattered to me. After blowing out all 4 shocks of my 18-month old Escalade without hitting anything major. Dealer agreed they've had a lot of suspension problems. Sorry Cadillac, 3rd strike, you're out. Explorer is off to a great start.

$42,000 and NO automatic garage door opener

And that's with $7,000 of options, including the Tech Feature Bundle, Sync 3 etc. Can't believe Ford would cheap out on this universally useful feature for its customers.

Good car, some improvements needed.

I have only owned this car a few weeks. It drives very nice, very much like a car. It has a bold look on the exterior which I like. The seats are very comfortable. The negatives are the rear seats, very hard to fold seats, takes a good hard yank and the rear seat is hard to access. The remote to start the car and unlock doors is very sensitive. I wish they would recess the panic button, it goes off very easy when I'm my pocket and my horn starts going crazy. I had a GMC Sierra 5.3 V8 crew cab truck before this car, My GMC averaged better gas mileage than the V6 in the explorer.

Super vehicle

The 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum model is well worth the cost. It holds its own in comparison to all the higher end SUV's. I'm extremely satisfied with its style, power and ease of using all the interior controls.

Slick, quick, and legit

This SUV has it all. A punchy V6 that acts quickly and behaves as billed. It is fast and responsive! The torque is great. It's MPG is a bit underwhelming, but what it lacks in efficiency, it makes up in performance and agility. I've never been disappointed in the engine's performance when I have needed it. The ride is amazing as well. There is virtually no cabin noise, even at speed in excess of 70 mph on the highway. Parking this beast is a bit tedious. It does feel larger than it actually is, but the external sensors and radar gadgets make parking and maneuvering easy over time. The comfort and luxury of the cabin rivals that of much higher end SUVs. This cabin has it all; heating, cooling, massage, dual zone, memory seating, etc... The ride and driving experience is great. One big downer.. SYNC 3. It still misses on seamless integration and reliable operation. It seems clunky and at times, unresponsive. It also seems to affect the quick response of the vehicle's radar sensors. It's not horrible, but it is an annoyance. All in all, this SUV is insane! Our family cannot be more happy with it.

So many other choices

This is the most uncomfortable car I have ever ridden in. The back seat is like sitting in a child's chair at your child's school conference. Hard to get in and out of. Cost is very high considering the features that you get. No USB plugs in the back. You will pay a lot for a very "meh" car. I would look at other SUVs first before this very average one. The front seat is an okay ride, but if you have a family this is definately not the car for you.

Buyers remorse

The ride is not comfortable. Seats are not big enough. No USB ports in the back. Went it to dealership to buy a flex and decided on this. Should have done our research. Rented a traverse this summer and many times better ride and features. Nothing good to say about car design and ride.

Who doesn't want twin-turbos in their family car?

Excellent vehicle. This is our second Explorer since the major changes and redesign in 2011. Our first was the limited model with every option. The car pretty much could drive it's self, just keep your eyes open. We test drove the Durango and the Acadia, but neither had as much technology and features to make it easy to load and unload 3 kids daily. Now we just purchased a 2017 Sport model, with the same features as our previous Explorer plus the addition of the twin-turbo engine. My Father-in-law traded his 2013 Corvette for a 2016 Platinum model and still doesn't regret it. So that is 3 reviews in one for you!

Coming from 3 consecutive MB GL's friends think I am crazy until they see and drive and only 55k without discount yet. Unlike A GL this sob goes when you touch the throttle, seats are better, handling better, controls better but doors don't clunk like a Benz. Small price to pay and cost of ownership is half. Get the dealer to give you a platinum to drive overnight

Is this a Ford or a European SUV.............

Unbelievable Value. Leased for same price as middle Acura MDX but have Sooooooooo much more! 35-50% cheaper than more expensive brands like Volvo XC90, Audi Q7 and other higher end SUV's but have cheaper insurance, and cheaper property tax (yes we pay yearly property taxes here in Connecticut) Seats are not perfect, could be longer, however the Seat Massage makes you forget about the seat size, AWESOME feature, esp for someone with a bad back. Interior is gorgeous. The radio is outstanding. The engine is powerful, fun, and sporty. In 'D' drives relatively normal, with def spunk. Put it in 'S' and you have yourself a rocket, with some exhaust growl to boot. Very Fun to drive. 450 mile trip yday, avg 21.4 mph. Just an outstanding value if you are looking at Higher End brands, want value, understand more horsepower equals lower mph, and want it all, Platinum is the WAY TO GO. The adaptive cruise control is OUTSTANDING. I thought, gimmick. Awesome feature. Land departure is ok. Blind spot is excellent. Absolutely must test drive the 17 Platinum Explorer!

Our First New SUV

In the past I've owned used Chevy S-10 Blasers, a Bravada and a Lexus RX 300. My family recently purchased a new 2017 Ford Explorer XLT. With the incentives offered by Ford and decent internet pricing, we got into a new model with many options that brought our vehicle within reach of the higher-end Limited series for convenience and features that we wanted, but at a manageable cost. Fit and finish both outside and in the cabin is well executed and we were pleased to find one locally with a light tan leather interior matched to a silver body. We do not like all black inside, it's just too gloomy in my opinion. On the plus side of the equation we enjoy the heated steering wheel, lighting and displays and the touch screen functionality. Also, the truly fold flat cargo floor is a huge deal as we frequently haul goodies to and from the cabin. On the downside, the front driver and passenger seats are shallow, too narrow for a full framed body and somewhat hard. There is little concern shown for long-legged drivers as the seat does not go back far enough and your feet are compressed into a relatively small, boxed in space that does not permit any shifting or wiggling of your extremities. In summery, we are reasonably happy with our new ride, and not at all sorry for the purchase, but would like to see the level of driver comfort improved in future.

Rented car for a week

So, i got this 2017 model while my original SUV was getting fixed after a tree branch fell on it. Pros: sync 3 is like an iphone and very responsive, good headlights, upgraded brakes as part of limited upgraded worked well, good grip on road though i drove in dry conditions. Cons: the interior surfaces scratched easily but perhaps thst is due to soft plastics?, the upper dash is soft but where you right leg hits dash is hard which is bad for a tall guy, acceleration with the base eco boost is bad especially for freeway merge, fuel economy at best was 16.5 mpg which is well below EPA, parking brake hits your left foot. Seriously ford, you couldnt put in an electronic parking brake as you hate hand brakes?
