2012 Ford Explorer Review

from the Cars.com expert editorial team

Watch MotorWeek on PBS. Check MotorWeek.org for times and channels.

Sharing its car-based platform with the Taurus sedan, the 2012 Ford Explorer sits squarely in the crossover realm, pitting it against competitors like the Toyota Highlander, Honda Pilot and Chevrolet Traverse. Front-wheel drive is standard, and the Explorer can seat up to seven people in three rows. All-wheel drive with Ford’s Terrain Management System is optional.

The MyFord Touch system, with touch-sensitive controls similar to those in the Edge crossover, is also optional. Base, XLT and Limited trim levels are offered. All three come with V-6 power; the turbo four-cylinder is optional on front-wheel-drive models.

New for 2012
A 240-horsepower, turbocharged 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine is newly available for 2012.

Exterior
Styled similarly to the Edge, the Explorer projects a squatter, more carlike stance. The headlights and taillights narrow the lower you look, and the grille uses Ford’s familiar three-bar design. It’s gray on base models, silver on the XLT and body-colored on the Limited. Exterior features include:

  • Standard 17-inch steel wheels and black plastic side moldings
  • XLT models add body-colored door handles, painted black mirrors and 18-inch alloy wheels
  • Limited trims have body-colored mirrors and 20-inch alloy wheels

Interior
The Explorer’s dashboard can come outfitted with touch-sensitive controls and LCD gauge screens. It’s part of the optional MyFord Touch. MyFord Touch puts, among other things, an LCD. Show full review

Drivers can configure what information — from a virtual tachometer to music and navigation information — goes on the screens in the gauge cluster.

With a second-row bench seat, seating capacity is seven. Second-row captain’s chairs, optional on the Limited, reduce capacity to six. The third row folds down in a 50/50 split, with available power folding seats on the Limited. Interior features include:

  • Standard cloth upholstery; optional leather seats
  • Standard CD stereo with MP3 jack
  • Standard air conditioning
  • Optional heated and cooled front seats

  • Both engines drive a six-speed automatic transmission
  • Available Terrain Management System adapts drivetrain settings to suit one of four environments: pavement, snow, sand or mud
  • V-6 towing capacity is 5,000 pounds; four-cylinder’s is 2,000 pounds

Safety
Antilock brakes, side curtain airbags and an electronic stability system with Ford’s Roll Stability Control are standard. The stability system employs Ford’s Curve Control feature, which aims to cut speed should a driver head too fast into a corner. Additional safety features include:

  • Optional adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning
  • Optional blind spot warning system with Cross Traffic Alert
  • Optional backup camera
  • Optional inflatable rear seat belts, which aim to spread crash forces across the body by deploying an airbag-like inflation device during a forward collision

Ford Explorer

Ford Explorer to amerykański SUV produkowany przez koncern motoryzacyjny Ford Motor Company. Pierwsza generacja Explorera zadebiutowała w 1990 roku. Model powstaje do dziś w fabrykach znajdujących się w USA, Rosji i Wenezueli.

Ford Explorer – informacje ogólne

Od momentu rozpoczęcia produkcji pierwszych egzemplarzy Explorera minęło już prawie 30 lat. Do chwili obecnej powstało pięć generacji tego auta. Wraz z upływem czasu model oprócz zdolności radzenia sobie w trudnym terenie, zaczynał kusić klientów atrakcyjnym wyglądem oraz wyposażeniem. Wraz z kolejnymi generacjami Explorer z kanciastej bryły zyskał zaokrągloną, nowoczesną sylwetkę.

Największe uznanie Ford Explorer zdobył w USA, jednak na całym świecie ma rzeszę swoich fanów. Amerykański SUV chętnie wykorzystywany jest przez policję lub Secret Service.

Ford Explorer – dane techniczne

Pierwsze generacje Forda Explorera napędzane były silnikami V6 i V8 o pojemnościach od 4 do 5 litrów. Najmocniejsze jednostki miały moc wynoszącą prawie 300 KM. Najnowsza, piąta generacja oferuje znacznie mniejsze, nawet 2-litrowe silniki R4 EcoBoost.

Motory Explorera napędzały obie osie, a napęd na oś przenoszony był poprzez 5-biegową, manualną skrzynię biegów lub 4-, 5- i 6-biegową, automatyczną. Od chwili wprowadzenia na rynek czwartej generacji producent zrezygnował z manualnej skrzyni biegów. W tym czasie zaprzestano również produkować egzemplarze przystosowane do lewostronnego ruchu. Model na początku XXI wieku przeszedł wiele przemian. Dostosowano go do transportu nawet 7 osób dodając do wnętrza dodatkowy rząd siedzeń oraz zwiększono wyposażenie standardowe. Najnowsza generacja auta wyróżnia się bogatym wyposażeniem. W podstawowych wersjach znajdziemy m.in. 4.2-calowy wyświetlacz LCD, system filtrujący powietrze w kabinie, elektryczne szyby i lusterka oraz 4 gniazda 12V.

Explorer najnowszej generacji ma 4902 mm długości, 1854 mm szerokości oraz 1803-1826 mm wysokości. Największymi konkurentami dla nowego Forda mogą być Audi Q7, Acura MDX lub Honda Pilot.

Ford Explorer – spalanie

Kupując Forda Explorera należy liczyć się z tym, że nie jest to oszczędne auto. Ze względu na dużą moc oraz silniki drzemiące pod maską Explorer, spali średnio od 11 do ponad 20 litrów paliwa. W Polsce można spotkać modele z instalacją LPG, co pozwala zmniejszyć koszty podróżowania.

2012 Ford Explorer 2.0L EcoBoost

Ford has pledged to make its downsized, turbocharged, direct-injection EcoBoost motors available as options in 90 percent of its American product line by 2013. So far, the technology cocktail has been served up in the Taurus SHO and Flex, as well as the Lincoln MKT and MKS. EcoBoost pulled off perhaps its greatest upset in the F-150, with the mighty twin-turbo 3.5-liter V-6 being spec’d in 41 percent of all F-150s sold here at Ford’s last count. Now, the Edge and Explorer have bellied up to the EcoBoost bar. The two crossovers tie for the honor of being the first Blue Oval products in the U.S. to offer the 2.0-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder—but only on models with front-wheel drive.

Four of One, Third-of-a-Dozen of the Other

As in the F-150, the EcoBoost engine in the Edge and Explorer is offered as a seemingly equal alternative to engines with two more gas-swilling cylinders. In this case, the EcoBoost option (which costs $995 in both models) is Ford’s 2.0-liter four-cylinder, producing a stout 240 hp at 5500 rpm and 270 lb-ft of torque at 3000 revs. Compare that to the base 3.5-liter V-6 in the Explorer, which offers 290 hp but just 255 lb-ft of torque. Citing a fuel-economy advantage of about 3 mpg compared with the V-6 alternatives, Ford claims the new four-pot is “the ideal powertrain” for the Edge and Explorer.

We sort of agree with Ford regarding the Edge (click here to read our drive of the EcoBoost Edge), but not so much when it comes to the Explorer. That certainly isn’t because the engine is any worse; part for part and pony for pony, it is identical. Ditto the shared transmission, which features six gears but no manually selectable ratios beyond “D” and “L.”

So Close, But So Far Away

The culprit here is weight: With its seven seats and additional 12.9 inches of overall length, the 4550-pound 2012 Explorer with EcoBoost is saddled with a gluttonous 450 pounds or so more than the EcoBoost-powered Edge. The engine itself is as sweet as honey: turbo lag is pretty much nonexistent, and the four whirs along in utter silence unless the driver is really deep into the throttle. Off-the-line response is quite good, but all that weight makes the initial acceleration unsustainable. By the time the engine is midway up the rev range, sluggishness prevails.

We drove it solo as well as with four adults on board, on roads both flat and hilly. With just four aboard, performance suffered dramatically, so we shudder at the thought of filling all seven seats and/or pulling 2000 pounds of trailer (the max recommended for the EcoBoost Explorer). Ford has a policy of not providing performance estimates for most of its cars, but in a recent comparison test of three-row crossovers, we clocked a 0-to-60-mph time of 7.7 seconds in a 4747-pound, all-wheel-drive Explorer V-6. We expect a time of around 8.0 seconds for the Explorer with the four.

In other respects, the EcoBoosted example behaved much like other Explorers we have driven since the formerly body-on-frame model crossed into crossover-dom. The electrically assisted steering is too light but precise, and the brakes are strong. But, with its formidable width and outboard armrests that only an NBA player could reach, the Explorer imparts an inescapable feeling that one is driving more of a room than a car.

Yes, Even EcoBoost Has Its Limits

Ford readily admits that the four-cylinder Explorer is not ideal for crossover buyers who intend to tow. Rather, Ford says it is a better match for workaday tasks like shuttling the kids to school and grocery-getting—so, the stuff crossover buyers do. In most regards, the lighter, more enjoyable-to-drive Edge with EcoBoost could work equally well (and yield an additional mile or two per gallon while it’s at it) unless that third-row seat is absolutely necessary. The portly Explorer is just a bit too much Ford for four cylinders to handle—even with a turbo.

2012 Ford Explorer Prices and Values

Utility 4D Limited 2WD

Depreciation
Depreciation is an estimate of the reduction in value incurred by owning and operating a vehicle over a period of time. The depreciation cost is calculated using a combination of data sources and assumptions, including the value of the vehicle, the mileage of the vehicle, and the overall the condition of the vehicle.

Fees & Taxes
Fees and taxes are an estimate of the costs you will incur to operate the vehicle over a period of time. Fees and taxes are imposed by state and local governments and government agencies, such as the DMV, and they include the cost of registration, title fees, and state sales taxes.

Financing
Financing is an estimate of what it will cost you to borrow money to purchase a vehicle. The financing costs are calculated by using various data sources from multiple lending institutions, including standard down payment amounts, loan terms, and current interest rates.

Insurance
Insurance costs are an estimate of what it will cost you to insure the vehicle over a period of time. Insurance costs vary widely based upon the driving record of the owner and the coverage amount, so we estimate the cost using assumptions about the driver and coverage amount. The cost is estimated based on data from multiple insurance industry sources.

Fuel
Fuel costs are an estimate of what it will cost you at the gas pump for the vehicle over a period of time. Fuel costs are calculated using the U.S. Government Environmental Protection Agency’s estimated mileage figures (when available) for both highway and city driving, then adjust based on the estimated percentage of mileage for these two types of driving. The estimated miles driven per year, the type of fuel the vehicle requires, and current state gas prices are all factored into the estimated fuel costs.

Maintenance
Maintenance costs are an estimate of what it will cost you to maintain the vehicle over a period of time. Maintenance costs can vary greatly based upon the vehicle you own and how you drive it, but the maintenance cost estimated is based on three key data points that we receive from industry sources: frequency of incident, labor rates, and parts prices.

Opportunity Cost
Opportunity cost is an estimate of the interest that could have been earned if the funds had not been spent owning and operating the vehicle. The opportunity cost is calculated using other Total Cost to Own data fields and the interest calculated is based on current interest rates, supplied by nationally recognized financial institutions.

Repairs
Repair costs are an estimate of what it will cost you to repair the vehicle over a period of time. Repair costs are estimated using the national average consumers will pay to keep their vehicle in operating condition (please note that because maintenance costs are measured separately, the repair cost does not include these costs). The estimate is prepared using a $0 deductible extended service contract that will pay for repairs for 5 years or at least 75,000 miles. Figures quoted are averages from nationally available service contract providers and are adjusted to eliminate the profit margin from the calculation.

Ford Explorer II SUV 4.0

Podsumowanie: Ford Explorer 97″z niem, zadbany. Kupiłem przy przebiegu 216 tyś, założyłem lpg i przez pół roku zrobiłem 16 tyś, ; trochę ryzykownie bo świeżo nabytym Szwecję objechałem, ale bez problemów (sprawdził się na 7 tys km) . Wiadomo przy zawieszeniu drobne rzeczy wymieniłem (łączniki czy sworznie i piasta przednia). Autkiem dobrze się jeździ, na dłuższych trasach kierowca się nie męczy, klima wydajna a tapicerka przyjemna i wygodna, bagażnik wielki. Polecam, ale szukajcie zadbane egzemplarze. Jak na ten rocznik i za tą kasę to full wypas

Ford Explorer II SUV 4.0

Podsumowanie: nie ma lepszego auta

Ford Explorer II

Podsumowanie: Miałem takie w Emiratach oraz Range Rovera 4l na pompo gaźnikach, karoseria wieczna bo z aluminium, do szlajania się po pustyni, dunach i górach. To już drugie (trzecie w życiu), moje auto tej marki, w kraju, mam ich dwa. Pierwszy z 1996, 260 tysięcy przejechane, oba w gazie LPG, Małżonka innego by nie chciała, jak i ja. Tam przy 50-60 stopni temp. spisywał się także wspaniale, tu w kraju przy minus 30, nigdy nie miałem problemu z uruchomieniem, a w tym pierwszym akumulator ma 7 lat! Polecam rodzinom ten samochod. Drugiego starszego oddaję synowi z synową.

Ford Explorer 4.0 — Nieudana ekspansja

Głównych przyczyn niepowodzenia Explorera w Europie należy upatrywać w zbyt późnym debiucie – druga połowa lat 90. to już początek ekspansji lekkich SUV-ów i oszczędnych, nowoczesnych konstrukcji. Musiało się wtedy poddać wielu uznanych konkurentów (np. Opel Monterey/Isuzu Trooper). Explorera – choć oferował ciekawy design – zaliczymy do aut ze starej „szkoły”. Ma ramę i sztywny most tylny, co nie pomoga mu w czasie „asfaltowej” jazdy. Do spokojnej eksploatacji (w amerykańskim stylu) nada się co prawda znakomicie, ale już próby dynamicznego atakowania zakrętów mogą się nie powieść – wystarczy spojrzeć na proporcje szerokości nadwozia do wysokości.

Z pewnością do udanych zaliczymy projekt wnętrza, które jest przytulne i zazwyczaj nieźle wyposażone (skórzana tapicerka, szyberdach, klimatyzacja). Oczywiście trzeba lubić amerykański styl, trochę też brakuje schowków. Dobrze prezentuje się bagażnik, choć dane o jego maksymalnej pojemności (prawie 4000 l) są mocno przesadzone.

Do niepowodzenia w Europie z pewnością przyczynił się też silnik. W tym czasie nasz kontynent zachwycał się już oszczędnością diesli i spalająca powyżej 15 l/100 km „benzyna” nie wzbudzała entuzjazmu. Choć – swoją drogą – 4-litrówka z górnymi wałkami rozrządu (wcześniej stosowano prostszą – OHV) to bardzo udany motor. Zapewnia dobrą dynamikę (100 km/h według pomiarów sprzed lat auto osiąga po 9,2 s), elastyczność i właściwą kulturę pracy. Dodajmy, że to silnik europejski. Dobrze pracuje nowa (w tamtych czasach), 5-biegowa przekładnia. Działa płynnie, choć z pewnym opóźnieniem.

O ile skrzynia jest niezawodna, to z silnikiem może wiązać się największe utrapienie – nietrwały napęd rozrządu. Zastosowano łańcuchy, co jednak zamiast oszczędzić kosztów – przysporzyło ich. Uważać trzeba na wszelkie hałasy, bo początkowo wystarczyć może tylko wymiana napinacza. Jeśli nie zdążymy na czas – zacznijmy badać konstrukcję naszego motoru (2 lub 4 łańcuchy). Jeden rząd cylindrów ma rozrząd napędzany od strony atrapy chłodnicy, drugi – od ściany grodziowej. Aby go wymienić, technologia przewiduje… wyjęcie motoru. Same części (łańcuchy, napinacze) pochłoną co najmniej 2000 zł, często niestety robocizna okazuje się jeszcze droższa. Dlatego też lepiej uważać na auta używane – część „sprytnych” użytkowników w momencie wystąpienia drogich awarii stara się zbyć auto.

Na nabywcę czekać może jeszcze kilka niespodzianek. Pompa wspomagania to wydatek niemal 2000 zł, najczęściej pomaga regeneracja (około 500 zł). Drobne brzęczenie z okolicy tylnego mostu może oznaczać, że wypadła mała sprężynka zabezpieczająca półoś. Rozbiórka i naprawa mostu, nowy olej – znów „ucieknie” kilkaset zł. Ponieważ auto występowało w oficjalnej sieci sprzedaży w Polsce, autoryzowane stacje dysponują oprogramowaniem do zamawiania części zamiennych. Nie ma co jednak liczyć na szybką realizację czy fachowe doradztwo, poza tym wiele cen zwyczajnie odstrasza (np. hamulce). Explorer nie występuje jednak w katalogach największych hurtowni części (np. Inter Cars). Najwięcej będą wiedzieli mechanicy z warsztatów wyspecjalizowanych w autach zza oceanu.

Spore gabaryty i masa nie wskazują na terenowe aspiracje auta. Solidna konstrukcja daje gwarancję sprawnego poruszania się w lekkim terenie, czy też stworzenia bazy pod przeróbki, ale raczej nie leży to w naturze tego samochodu. Poprzestańmy na zaawansowanej turystyce.

Ogólnie jednak Explorera trzeba pochwalić – to dobra, stosunkowo trwała konstrukcja. Kogo nie przerażą spalanie czy utrudniona dostępność części, może śmiało rozpocząć przygodę z Explorerem. W Polsce nie znajdzie wielu naśladowców, ale niech będzie pewien, że przystąpił do wielkiej, światowej rodziny.
