There have been a lot of new renovations in the automobile market, with a trend going toward more eco-friendly vehicles. One of the latest automobiles to get a makeover is the 2011 Ford Explorer, and it seems likely it will boost Ford sales. For someone planning on a new car purchase this year, it would be a good idea to look at this new model.
According to Free Press Business, Ford has unveiled its latest Sport Utility Vehicle, the 2011 Ford Explorer. The 2011 Ford Explorer is going to have 30 percent better fuel efficiency with the turbocharged EcoBoost engine model, and more off-road capabilities. The standard V6 engine model will get 25 percent better fuel efficiency and off-road capabilities, if you do not want to spend the money for the EcoBoost engine. The 2011 Ford Explorer was unveiled in a nine-city media blitz, and the use of social networking was also used to get the word out about the new model.
I plan to buy the 2011 Ford Explorer for a few different reasons, with the priority being fuel economy. I live in a rural area where it takes at least 20 miles to get to the center of everything, so good gas mileage is important. There are also more jobs around Cincinnati, Ohio, than in rural areas, so you have to be willing to drive for your job. I feel that the 2011 Ford Explorer provides me with an option for better fuel efficiency than a lot of other SUVs on the market. I also am looking forward to buying the 2011 Ford Explorer because I do a lot of off-road activities with my family, and need something bigger with more weight.
The 2011 Ford Explorer looks great, which is always a positive thing, but it really has all of the design features you could want, including automatic windows and a beautiful interior. The dashboard is stunning, with the built-in navigation system, which is something I really need because I get lost very easily in places I am not familiar with. The new Explorer also uses the three-bar grille that Ford is known for, and it has a rear liftgate spoiler on the back.
Overall, the 2011 Ford Explorer provides a new spin on a lot of the old designs from Ford with top technological features, and that is something I am looking for. I really like Ford because they always know when to integrate the old with the new, and the 2011 Explorer really does well at this concept. I enjoy the navigation system and the overall look of the dashboard because it is trendy yet elegant. I am looking forward to having something I can use for both formal and informal travel, such as vacations and off-road time with the family.
Living in rural areas also makes me need something that can tow if needed and big enough to pick up lawn furniture or other outside items. I have been waiting for the 2011 Ford Explorer to come out because I know the fuel efficiency will be at the top of the class in performance, and it will exceed my expectations. I have had few reservations about the 2011 Explorer because I know they make quality products, and are willing to take that extra step in the industry. The only thing I was concerned about was the gas mileage, and whether or not it lives up to the hype, which I will only know when I start driving it. Until I drive it, there is nothing negative I can say about the 2011 Ford Explorer because everything about it leads me to believe it will be the best vehicle I have ever owned.
