Car Profiles - Ford Explorer

FORD EXPLORER

A shift to a car based platform meant the Explorer is more comfortable and car-like. While you get tons of safety amenities and an upscale cabin, driving one is bigger than it is and there's less room at the back. For 2016, an all Ecoboost engine lineup comes standard.

The Good: High end quality
The Bad: Somewhat less space at the back

Price Range: P2,509,000-P2,870,000
