Ford Explorer: The SUV Offering the Best of Both Worlds

If you go back in automotive history to the mid-1990s, you'll see the beginning of an emerging trend. Sport utility vehicles were becoming more and more prevalent on the road. While initially referred to as merely "pickup trucks with bed hoods" by some, SUVs became a popular choice among automotive consumers, and manufacturers definitely took notice of this development.

Ford established themselves as an early leader in the segment with their Explorer SUV. The earliest iterations of the Explorer offered true off-road credentials for drivers in the Martinsville and Charlottesville, VA, areas. In fact, the Explorer pretty much owned the SUV market for quite some time.

So, what happened?

Well, like anything in life, things change. Over the next decades, consumers began to desire SUVs more for everyday transportation than off-road purposes. That meant that interior comfort and refinement became top priorities for those purchasing and leasing these vehicles. Something else interesting happened.

Along with the shift in interior features came an evolution in architecture and style. Many SUVs began to shift from their truck-based platforms to more car-based platforms and unibody construction. This cut weight from the vehicle and, in turn, increased fuel efficiency and driving dynamics. In short, this was the evolution of the modern day "crossover" SUV.

Crossover SUVs now have to walk a fine line between providing interior comfort and refinement along with some off-road prowess for those who desire it. No other model on the market has accomplished this feat as well as the Ford Explorer. It sports a roomy and comfortable cabin with lots of interior features, but can also provide a rugged experience if you choose to navigate less ideal road conditions. It's also one of the best looking crossover SUVs on the market today, as well.
