When it comes to the Ford lineup, which are the first models that pop into your mind’s eye? Most likely two of them are the Ford F-150 and the Ford Mustang, which are two of the most iconic vehicles in the history of the industry, so that would be no surprise. But what would number three be? For us, it’s without a doubt the Ford Explorer. Introduced all the way back for the 1991 model year, it has established a fantastic reputation for itself in three different classes through its six generations, including the one it finally settled on: midsize crossover. We typically have several used Ford Explorer SUVs for sale right here in Manhattan, Kansas.
Although the vehicle has more than three decades of experience, you’re most likely to find models from its current (sixth) or previous (fifth) generations. At the time of this page’s creation, available Ford Explorer models included four from the fifth generation and six from the sixth. So, these are certainly the models you’re most likely to find, though anything is possible in the realm of used vehicles.
There have been a few variants throughout the years, though most of them were a long time ago. For example, the Explorer XL or Explorer Sport from the early ‘90s and ‘00s, or the Explorer Sport Trac throughout the ‘00s. As for trim levels, the current model year offers eight different trim levels, starting with the Explorer Base and moving up to XLT, ST-Line, Timberline, Limited, ST, King Range and Platinum.
Reasons to purchase a Ford Explorer of your own certainly start with that three-decade pedigree we talked about – it has built a heck of a reputation through the years. It’s spacious and comfortable, packed full of advanced technologies and features, it's surprisingly capable and versatile and offers great performance despite its size. It’s the whole package and exactly what you want in a midsize crossover.
