The Ford Explorer, along with the Everest, has held the fort for the Blue Oval in the popular SUV genre.

Prior to silently removing the Explorer from their local website (to make way for the new facelifted model) Ford has offered the Explorer in two variants: a 2.3-liter front-wheel-drive model and a 3.5-liter V6 all-wheel-drive.
