The Ford Explorer 2002 is a alot more innovative looking automobile which includes a completely-unique body, an extended wheelbase as well as separate front and rear suspension, this is present in either a V6 or V8 gasoline engine. The Explorer XLT comes with a complete number of standard features and is fitted with a 4.0 litre V6 engine (4.6 litre V8 is an option) that provides effective functionality with enhanced response. The completely independent suspension has a very luxurious ride helping in making the Explorer a good enjoyable automobile for driving.
The vehicle appears to be rugged however it is truly a softie. Correctly or incorrectly the Ford Explorer is a lot maligned, tainted by being the vehicle that led to the great Ford Motor Company to its knees and quickened the termination of Aussie Jac Nasser’s period as head honcho.
As far as we know ,the Explorer appeared to be America’s third-best-selling passenger automobile as well as its best-selling four-wheel drive. However it developed popping tyres and lots of people died in the resulting accidents.
Ford blamed the Firestone tyres fitted to it; Firestone blamed the Explorer. It was a mess of monumental proportions, not helped when the Explorer became known as the Exploder. But when it arrived here, it entered a quite different market.
