We have the base 4. This truck was in excellent condition with only 32k miles. Feel free to use any replacement light bulb sizes that are listed on Modified Life but keep in mind that all information here is provided as is without any warranty of any kind. Optical fiber strip Length: approx. Details like the trim rings around the gauges and the surprisingly well-designed interior door handle releases show that somebody at Ford is paying attention. We haven't owned this Explorer yet through a winter, so I can't really evaluate the 4 wheel drive. New standard features include Trailer Sway control that works with the AdvanceTrac and Roll Stability control to keep trailers under control during towing.
The truck drives nice on the Highway, but around town with many pot holes due to the season, the truck give a very bouncy ride. The 2009 Ford Explorer delivers on both. Safety equipment, including standard stability control with a rollover sensor, plus a new Trailer Sway Control, will appeal to the family haulers. Passenger volume comes in at 106. Our Ford Explorer light bulb guides allow you to easily replace light bulbs, replace headlight bulb, change a broken lightbulb, install a hid headlight conversion or install led light bulbs instead of spending countless hours trying to figure out which light bulb sizes in your 2009 Ford Explorer. The V8 seems to give almost the same fuel economy.
The Explorer is offered in three trim. Although the interior of the Lincoln is more luxurious, the Ford Explorer is more reliable when it comes to long road trips. Another plus for those with large broods is. It is hard for me to see out the rear windows. It drives much smoother and makes tight corners beautifully, which is perfect for driving in the downtown area. If you want a more car-like ride, there are many crossovers to consider. The Bonneville was longer and may be a little wider.
But 3rd-row headroom is expansive and leg space is surprisingly good. Legroom is tight only with the front seats fully aft. A few short thoughts: We average 17-18 city and 21-22 mpg highway. Other 2009 Ford models 2009 Ford Explorer specs 6. Truck is in excellent condition.
Second- and 3rd-row seats fold nearly flat for ample cargo room, but leave gaps large enough for smaller items to fall through. It was worth the drive. We feel very safe in the Explorer and I am optimistic about its long term reliability. The 2009 Ford Explorer delivers on both. The 3rd-row seat cushion is low to the floor, pancake flat, and the floor shape obstructs foot space. It is paired to a six-speed automatic gearbox, combining to tow up to 7,285 lb. Note: do not have app control and remote control Package Includes: 1x Interior Light Set as pictured.
Exterior styling is nice, but the interior styling is just plain strange. The standard drivetrain for the Ford Explorer is a 210-horsepower 4. The AdvanceTrac electronic stability control system with roll stability control is standard. New for 2009 is the next-generation voice-activated Navigation system with Sirius Travel Link. I've been driving for almost 50 years and this is the most comfortable trip vehicle I've ever owned. These basic exterior dimensions also cross our mind when we have concerns about parking space in the yard.
The dashboard design puts the radio just out of easy reach. The transmission shift lever prevents easy access to climate controls. The features list on the 2009 Ford Explorer, both standard and optional, is enough to put a smile on just about any driver's face. I know 2010 was its last year, so I went to the used market and got a 2009 with low milage and gave my 2007 to my wife for her town activities. It provides probably the best compromise between performance and gas mileage. It fits better in my garage than my 2005 Bonneville.
The six cylinder got good gas mileage also. If you need more room and a usable third seat, get a mini-van. Aside from a large console box, interior storage is meager. Light was blinking on dash on right side if you tap it would come on now only one side of dash lights up air conditioner blow out frost on compressor right side of truck door lock will not come up when you press locks dealer needs to fix this not the cust it makes you don't want to buy a Ford any more. Tall drivers certainly need to carefully check out car interior dimensions to derive pleasure from driving a 2009 Ford Explorer, as lack of head room leads to unnatural positioning in the seat. Though most like the interior, one recurring complaint is the placement of the door handles.
I personally got the V8 and I am in love. The interior might be tighter, but I would rather have a car that handles and drives better. The turn signal stalk is mounted at an awkward angle. Passenger volume comes in at 106. It is very comfortable and have nice features. I have driven both and I personally like the Explorer better.
