The Ford Explorer is the American alternative
The Ford Explorer appears to operate unnoticed.
Ford revamped the Explorer in 2020,
and for about $40,000 you can get an improved XLT model
of the Explorer that has heated seats,
rear parking sensors, and Ford's stain-resistant ActiveX
leather-like upholstery as standard equipment
The Explorer will not really draw as much attention as some other SUVs,
which is a positive for some people.
It has Ford's newest 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine
which produces 305 horsepower
Alternately, go a little beyond and try on the ST-Line performance model
which costs $46,005 and has a 400-horsepower engine, firmer suspension,
and a cosmetic package.
