Used Ford Explorer: Limited vs. Sport trim

Post by Devil's Advocate » Sat Apr 14, 2018 4:57 pm

Bogleheads,

I'm in the market for a new to me used car. Am looking at 2016/17 Ford Explorers. Want all wheel drive/4 wheel drive. Wife set on leather seats. Am not sure if getting sport package is worth it. Looks like it adds an additional three or four thousand dollars compared to Limited edition. Edmunds reviews really promotes the sport package. Just wondering if any bogleheads have tried both and what they preferred. Thanks for any information.

DA

Drive both. Limited has a good set of features. 18” XLT has better ride

Sport will have a firmer ride. Test drive on a bumpy road.

We opted for a Limited.

As an explorer owner. Make sure it has sync 3.

My ford touch is horrible.

This thread is now in the Personal Consumer Issues forum (car).
