2005 Ford Explorer

Enlarge Photo
Ford's best-selling SUV delivers good all-around performance and comfort, with a roomy interior that can be fitted with a small third-row seat for the kids, and equipped with a full range of popular features. For 2005, Ford's AdvanceTrak system with Roll Stability Control becomes standard across the board, as does MP3 and Sirius satellite radio capability for all audio systems. Meanwhile the XLT appearance package adds a few features and available colors. A 210-horsepower V-6 is standard, while an available 239-horsepower 4.6-liter V-8 powerplant provides a welcome surge of power. There's a choice of Ford's Control-Trac four-wheel drive or full-time all-wheel-drive systems, with the latter preferred for on-road use. An Off-Road package is standard with the NBX edition.

How does the
TCC Rating work?
The TCC Rating is a clear numeric rating value based on a 10-point scale that reflects the overall opinion of our automotive experts on any vehicle and rolls up ratings we give each vehicle across sub-categories you care about like performance, safety, styling and more.

Our rating also has simple color-coded “Stop” (red), “Caution” (orange),
or “Go” (green) messages along with the numerical score so you can easily understand where we stand at a glance.

Our automotive experts then also collect and show you what other websites say about these different aspects of any vehicle. We do this leg work for you to simplify your research process.
