If people were to buy a vehicle only for themselves, chances are there would be a lot more sports car owners in the country. In reality though, most people take into consideration their family’s needs when choosing a car. And if you happen to have a big family, then you know a sedan just won’t cut it. On the other hand, you could get a van, but it would prove far too big when you’re driving alone to run errands, like buying groceries. Besides, the bigger the vehicle, the more gas it guzzles. Is there are nice compromise between the two? Yes, and it’s called the 2016 Ford Explorer. Just what makes this vehicle the perfect family vehicle? Check out its neat features below:
As previously mentioned, you’re going to need a lot of cabin space in your car to fit your entire brood. Luckily, the Explorer is a three-row crossover, allowing you to sit up to seven people, making it perfect for road trips and other long drives.
It’s not just people that can fit comfortably inside the 2016 Explorer, though–cargo can, too. The second and third row can all fold into the floor giving you a loading bay measuring up 81.7 cubic feet. That’s more than enough space to fit a week’s worth of groceries or construction supplies for your next DIY home projects.
Safety is a Priority
Of course, no cargo is more precious than your family, which is why Ford equipped the 2016 Explorer with many safety features. To keep your SUV from swaying out of lanes, the Explorer comes with stability and traction control systems. To mitigate injuries during crashes, it also has front seat, side curtain, and knee airbags.
If you and your family need a new car, it’s hard to go wrong with the 2016 Ford Explorer. To test it for yourself, visit Ford dealerships serving New Albany, IN or Sellersburg areas.
