Ford Dealer in Grapevine Reviews the New Explorer

Before we get to the 2013 Ford Explorer review, we've got a fun factoid for you: Did you know that the Explorer's new design happened in part due to Latin dance? That's right, Latin dance. As it turns out, Design Manager Melvin Betancourt has strong roots in Spanish Harlem, NYC, and the music of his heritage inspired part of the Explorer's design. He claims the new design is "...ripped and toned, athletic and graceful." This is, of course, quite similar to the body of a dancer.

All somewhat odd allusions aside, the next-gen Ford Explorer really is an athletic, yet graceful mid-size SUV. Ford Explorer shoppers in Dallas will love its contoured lines, aggressive fascia and commanding presence. And with best-in-class fuel-efficient engine options like an EcoBoost engine and sporty options like a turbocharged 4-cylinder good for 365 horsepower, the driving experience you crave is completely up to you.

Beyond its great looks and myriad engine options, the Explorer is one of the highest rated vehicles on the road when it comes to safety. In both government crash tests and IIHS safety testing, it scored top marks. But that's not all the Ford Explorer offers Dallas-area shoppers: Read on for a full review of the 2013 Explorer.
