      Used Ford Explorer Information

      One of the most popular and long-lived sport utility vehicles on the road, the Ford Explorer was introduced in 1990. Until 2010, the Explorer was a body-on-frame (truck-based) SUV in the midsize market. From 2011 forward, though, the Ford Explorer has been a unibody-style crossover SUV presented as a full-sized offering. It now fits in the Ford lineup between the Expedition and the Edge.

      The first-generation Explorer was introduced in the 1991 model year. With a 4.0-liter V6 engine as a derivative of the Ford Ranger pickup truck, a popular midsized pickup offering. It was one of the first "shift on the fly" four-wheel drive vehicles available at the time, using a Borg Warner 13-54 transfer case. Both a 3-door and 5-door SUV layout were available.

      The second-generation was introduced in 1995 with several updates. The same engine remained, but changes to suspension, chassis, and body style were made. The Explorer Sport was introduced as the new name for the three-door model while the five-door model retained the Ford Explorer name. In 2001, the Explorer Sport Trac, a pickup-truck-styled Explorer was introduced with mixed results.

      In today's used market, the third-generation (2002-2005) Ford Explorer is very popular. With styling that was more sleek and modern, a tried-and-true V6 engine and a powerful V8 engine option, and a third-row seat being introduced for the first time made for a much more versatile Explorer. The manual transmission was dropped after the 2002 model year, but stability control was added as a new option as well (standard from 2005 forward).

      The fourth-generation Ford Explorer was introduced in 2006 and has also been a popular SUV option in the used car market. Slightly larger and with an updated frame and stronger chassis, this Explorer became the choice of many SUV buyers. Tire pressure monitoring and electronic stability control meant that the Ford Explorer was one of the safer vehicles on the road for everyday use.

      The current-generation of the Ford Explorer appeared in 2011 as a unibody vehicle, turning away from the truck-like body-on-frame of earlier generations. The new, more fuel-efficient, and modern-styled Explorer has continued to be a leader in the contentious crossover market. Now considered a full-sized vehicle, the Ford Explorer includes technological updates and engine options now common in the Ford lineup.

      There are 22,640 used Ford Explorers in our used car listings, including the Ford F-150, Ford Fusion and Ford Focus. 58% of these vehicles have only one previous owner and 83% have no accident history.
