This SUV is great to use as a first responder POV or as an undercover unmarked unit. Auto transmission and selectable four wheel drive options 4x4 auto will engage the 4x4 if both your back tire start to spin. 4x4 high will lock you in high range, and 4x4 low lock you into low range. all with just a flip of the switch. the short wheel base is perfect for the back country patrols that are needed and with a good set of all terrans on all four corners it will get you into and out of anywhere you need to go. also the sport comes with the towing package. i pull my boat and trailers with supplies with no truble. The 4.0L engine make light work of towing or just getting around your beat. Not the best on fuel due to the 4x4 and auto tranny but not a gas hog. Great SUV all around. Love mine won't get ride of it for nothing.

    this is just a great all around SUV i love the 4 wheel drive and it was very simple to put all my lights and sirens in it with no problems. and not to many perps are looking for a red for explored sport to pull up on them and light them up. i use it to patrol the streets and alot of time here in east tn mountains i patrol the hills and valley does really good off road. have found many a meth labs with this truck. i take the explorer up trails when my partners have to leave there full size SUVs and truck at the trail head. Love it. This truck is my POV and i do all the maint. on it and i have had to do very little and minor fixes on this nothing major has gone wrong knock on wood. I have now put 168000 mile on this truck and it will take many more.
