Maryland Ford Dealer Excited for Truck of the Year 2011 Ford Explorer


The all new 2011 Ford Explorer has made a statement at the Detroit Auto Show. The newly designed Ford Explorer has been awarded the North American Truck of the Year Award for 2011. It was surprising to see an the Ford Explorer win the ward considering all of the updates made to 2011 trucks, regardless the Ford Explorer SUV is an amazing vehicle and brings the “wow factor” to anyone who drives it.

The 2011 Ford Explorer is now built on the Ford Taurus sedan chassis with a 3.5L V6 engine (290 hp and 17mpg city / 23awd/25fwd mpg highway). You can either get the V6 in all wheel drive or front wheel drive and there will be an available 4 cylinder engine with ecoboost (Ford’s name for using a combination of turbocharging and gasoline direct injection; GDI) rated at 237 hp. The new 2011 Ford Explorer is big enough for a third row seat and allows for 151.7 cubic feet of passenger space and plenty of cargo space. The Explorer also comes in a variety of new options including Ford’s adjustable head restraints, inflatable second row safety belts, and Terrain Management System.

2011 Ford Explorers go on sale this month and will be readily available to Delaware Ford Explorer customers and Maryland Ford Explorer customers at their local dealerships. The pricing on the Ford Explorer will range from $28995 to $39995 including $805 shipping. The 2011 Ford Explorer is expected to draw in customers looking at the Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango, Chevrolet Traverse/ GMC Acadia, Honda Pilot, and the Hyundai Veracruz.

“The 2011 Ford Explorer is truly amazing; you can really see Ford’s innovative technology at work with the inflatable safety belt system and the Terrain Management System,” says Chad Todd, Sales Manager at Preston Ford in Maryland, “I am expecting these SUVs to drive up sales where the Explorer’s predecessor left off.” The Ford Explorer will begin going on sale in the next couple of weeks. Many dealers have ordered a large number of the North American Truck of the Year in order to keep up supply for Ford Explorer buyers.
