Like other Ford models, the features list on the 2010 Ford Explorer, both standard and optional, is extensive enough to keep most people satisfied.  Ford brings the Explorer into the 2010 model year with the familiar base XLT, Eddie Bauer, and Limited trim levels. Last year's XLT Sport package returns for the 2010 lineup as well.

Feature-wise, the Explorer offers just about anything a buyer might want in an SUV, including a rear-seat DVD entertainment system and a power-folding third-row seat (which increases the Explorer's seating capacity to seven). Also available is the next-generation voice-activated navigation system with Sirius Travel Link.

The standard features on the 2010 Ford Explorer are numerous. The base-trim XLT offers "cruise control, air-conditioning, a CD/MP3 stereo with an auxiliary input jack and full power accessories," according to Edmunds, while "Eddie Bauer models provide two-tone paint, 17-inch alloy wheels," plus "heated front seats [and] Ford SYNC connectivity." In the Limited trim, Cars.com declares, "heated front seats, a power passenger seat, dual-zone automatic temperature control and a six-CD player with MP3 capability are standard." The SYNC feature is also standard on Ford Explorer Limited trims, and reviews read by TheCarConnection.com lavish it with praise.

The 2010 Ford Explorer also boasts some exciting options in the higher trim levels, as well as some more useful ones for the lower trim levels. Edmunds says that "rear-seat climate control and upgraded stereo" are available on the XLT and Eddie Bauer trims. Other options include a DVD entertainment system and a navigation system with upgraded audio and six-disc changer. ConsumerGuide reports that an available Sun and Sirius package will bring a "power sunroof [and] satellite radio" to the Ford Explorer.

Conclusion

With a long list of standard features in most of its trim levels, the 2010 Ford Explorer also has some interesting options available for personalization—but remember, those options can add up to a large chunk of money if you get reckless.

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.
