If ever there were a full-size SUV that could make us here at Bickford Ford flat-out flip our wig, the 2017 Explorer would most certainly be it.
And why is that, exactly?
Please allow our pals over at MotorWeek an opportunity to explain. Their assessment of the Explorer is as follows:
There is quite simply no denying the brilliance of the Explorer's entry-level drivetrain, a 3.5-liter V6. Served up standard on the Base trim, the V6 pairs with a six-speed automatic transmission to produce a potent 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque.
And it definitely doesn't…
Whether you're camping down by the lake or hitting the slops after the first snowfall of the season, you're going to want a car that can keep up with your lifestyle. The great outdoors is a wonderful place, and you want a vehicle that can help you navigate it. Fortunately, the 2017 Ford Explorer is just as rugged as you are.
The winter snow is beautiful, and the cold weather can be refreshing... depending on who you ask. But while you may be pulling out your hats, mittens, and skis, you'll also want to make sure that your vehicle can handle the winter months. Bickford Ford wants to suggest a few pieces of winter maintenance that can help keep your Ford at top performance on the wintery Snohomish and Seattle roads:
Every time Ford updates the F-150, which has been America’s favorite pickup for forty years, they always add on a virtual arsenal of class exclusive features. This, along with updates from model year to model year are part of what has kept the Blue Oval’s offering on top for so long. The 2017 model year will be no different.
It is true that we love Ford Trucks for their impressive power and capability, which continues to draw worldwide attention. Even experts are amazed how Ford engineers can put up such a solid performance after producing a power-packed truck that, in theory, should be heavier and less maneuverable than its counterparts.
