Ford Releases Pricing on All-New Ford Explorer, Base Starts at $28,995
<p>In terms of powertrain, refinement, and audience, the 2011 Ford Explorer that was unveiled today is a marked departure from past Explorers. Following today's debut of the new 2011 Ford Explorer, we have pricing information on all three Explorer trim levels.</p>
<p>Pricing and availability dates for Ford's new four-cylinder EcoBoost engine are not yet available, but we hear the smaller engine and its greater fuel efficiency will cost more than a similar V-6 model. Add $2000 to each model's price for the four-wheel-drive version.</p>
<p>Base: $28,995/30,995 (2WD/4WD)The lowest Explorer on the totem pole comes standard with front-wheel drive, as opposed to the 2010 model's real-wheel drive. (Add $2000 for all-wheel drive.) The base engine in the Explorer is Ford's 3.5-liter V-6, paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, that produces 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. Standard Explorers are equipped with Ford's latest safety technology, including Roll Stability Control and curve control.</p>
<p>XLT: $31,995/33,995 (2WD/4WD)Explorer XLT models are also standard with the base model's V-6, but the six-speed automatic comes with manual shifting. It also receives standard alloy wheels and a reverse sensing system.</p>
<p>Limited: $37,995/39,995 (2WD/4WD)The top of the Explorer lineup, the Limited comes standard with the MyFord Touch all-in-one infotainment system, HD radio, leather, and push-button start.</p>
<p>Of course, all these prices are just base figures and based on a previous report, we'd expect normal transaction prices to come in quite a bit higher once a few options are tacked on.</p>
<p>Ford has plans to roll out its highly-efficient EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, which produces 237 horsepower and 250 pound-feet of torque, at an undisclosed higher price in 2011. Would you pay more for a smaller engine?</p>
<p>All prices include an $805 destination fee.</p>
