Albuquerque, NM -- (ReleaseWire) -- 09/21/2011 -- Don Chalmers Ford, a leading Ford dealer, is pleased to announce that the new 2012 Ford Explorer is now in its Albuquerque showroom. The Ford Explorer’s 2012 model boasts solid driving dynamics, a high-class interior and a long of high tech gadgets.
The 2012 Ford Explorer is designed to have all the conveniences of an SUV but the feel of a car. During its complete redesign in 2011, the Explorer was built on a carlike unibody chassis rather than the previous truck-based body frame. The result is a more refined and carlike driving experience, while still offering the versatility that SUVs offer.
The 2012 Explorer is powered by a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates 290 horsepower from the standard six-speed automatic transmission. For those looking for greater fuel efficiency, Ford added an additional engine options for the 2012 model. Ford’s 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine is now available on the Explorer and receives an impressive EPA estimated fuel economy of 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.
The interior of the 2012 Ford Explorer is particularly stylish thanks to premium materials and a well laid-out dash. Easily seating up to seven in the spacious cabin, this SUV can haul both passengers and cargo in style. The Explorer also offers more high tech features than many in its class, including gadgets like Ford’s MyFord Touch, Sync, adaptive cruise control and an automated parallel-parking system.
