It’s time for a new vehicle to carry your growing family and the items that go with it. You’ve thought of a minivan, but you want something with capacity as well as maneuverability and the capability to travel on and off-road. In other words, you need an SUV.
That’s where a Ford Explorer in Shorewood, IL, comes into play. One of the older American SUV models on the market, it has everything you need to move your entire family around. Here are three reasons to consider a Ford Explorer for your driveway.
When you have six people in the car as well as luggage for a long trip, you want everyone to be as comfortable as possible. The Explorer has wide seats with cushioned, upfront armrests. In addition, the driver has added legroom to stretch out somewhat on long drives.
2. Clean Power
While not a hybrid, any new Ford Explorer from Shorewood, IL, features three clean powertrain options. The most powerful of the trio is the turbocharged 3.5L V6. It provides 365 horsepower and 350 pounds of torque while still maintaining a high gas mileage.
3. Automatically Adjusted Steering
No matter the power or the comfort, a ride in an SUV won’t be ideal if the steering doesn’t compensate. The newest models of the Explorer feature automatically adjusted steering, so it feels lighter when in a crowded parking lot or traffic jam. Conversely, it adjusts to a firmer feel when on the road. Additionally, if you go off-road, the steering compensates for the different terrains.
Does the Ford Explorer seem like the right fit for you? If so, call Ron Tirapelli Ford, visit their website at RonTirapelliFord.com, or stop in for a test drive. Don’t be surprised if you leave the dealership with a new Explorer that same day.
