The 2002 Ford Explorer is available in XLS, XLT, Eddie Bauer and Limited trim levels. It remains one of the most popular-selling SUVs in the Ford line-up. This year, it gets plenty of refinements, including a wider, more stable stance, a stiff frame and independent suspension which helps with maneuverability. Under the hood, the Explorer features a standard 210 horsepower 4.0-liter gas-powered V6. Standard equipment includes air conditioning, cruise control, keyless entry, an adjustable steering wheel, front and side-head airbags, ABS brakes and child door locks.
