2013 Ford Explorer Overview
Before You Purchase a 2013 Ford Explorer Near Detroit…
For the 2013 Explorer, Ford has transformed their once rugged SUV into a large-sized crossover, resulting in improved driving dynamics, a more spacious cabin, and increased fuel efficiency. Coming standard with a 3.5L V6 engine, the new Explorer is available in four trim levels with seating for up to 7 passengers, making it a popular choice for drivers seeking a family-friendly vehicle that has cargo capabilities when necessary. Standard from the base level on up are a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, trip computer, air conditioning, and roof rails.
Drivers looking for a new SUV near Detroit should take a close look at the 2013 Honda Pilot before settling on anything else, however. Honda’s proven reputation for delivering safe, affordable, and dependable vehicles is reason enough to choose the entry-level Pilot LX over the base model Explorer, but now that Honda is giving a new name to “standard” features by including high-tech amenities in their base models, it has become clear that they offer one of the best values in the segment. From Honda’s revolutionary i-MID system with 8-inch display to their rearview camera to their 2GB in-vehicle CD library, they have outfitted the Pilot LX with amenities that would be quite costly to add on to the entry-level Explorer.
Let’s break down what separates the Pilot LX from the basic Explorer:
