Ford Explorer: A Tale of Two SUVs

Remember when sport utility vehicles first arrived on the scene? They were touted as off-road warriors that could take you into the wild and allow you conquer the roughest terrains. During the ensuing years, however, SUVs began to morph into something completely different.

Most consumers began to drive sport utility vehicles not for their off-road prowess, but for their roominess and cargo capacity. In short, the SUV became more of an everyday transportation option to get you from point A to point B. Due to this shift in consumer sentiment, factories begin concentrating more on refining the interiors of the vehicles rather than enhancing off-road capabilities.

The shift became so radical over time that the construction of sport utility vehicles actually changed. They began to be built on car-like platforms and became known as crossovers. There were a few automakers, however, that kept their SUVs true to their roots. Ford is one example with their Explorer sport utility vehicle.

The Explorer still maintains off-road performance features while also providing a premium interior experience for shoppers in the LaGrange and Newnan, GA areas. This may sound simple, but it's not. It's a delicate balancing act to straddle the line in order to provide the best of both worlds.

Ford Explorer History

Ford's Explorer SUV was a smashing success upon its arrival in the North American market in 1991. Consumers loved the roominess of the Explorer along with its cargo carrying capacity and off-road prowess

Four years later, Ford enhanced the Explorer's performance aspects with the introduction of a unique four-wheel drive system. This system would automatically engage the four wheel drive system when conditions dictated rather than relying on the driver for manual activation

In 1998, the Explorer became the top selling sport utility vehicle in America. Interior features and equipment in the Explorer were continually improved upon through the following years to satisfy the growing demand for SUVs as everyday transportation vehicles

The Explorer has gone through subsequent redesigns over the years, but still remains a popular option among consumers.
