Explorer First Take

For being as popular as it is, Ford hasn't needed to change the face of the Explorer to much. With a few upgrades here and there, it's still keeping itself up-to-date. For example, standard on all models are alloy wheels and privacy tinted rear windows. It's still sporting its large front mesh grille which comes in black if you fancy looking like your local police cruisers. You get your standard Halogen reflector high-beam headlamps with LED low beams, LED tail lamps and configurable daytime running lamps.

What Our Customers Are Saying

5 stars - After a disappointing experience at another dealership,where they really didn't want to work with me on the purchase of a used Explorer, I came to McGrath Ford. From the minute I got out of my car, Zach was there to help. He and Anthony worked with me on finding just the right Explorer for our family. I seriously made them work. Buying a car is a big deal and they knew it had to be just the right one. We ended up buying new after I found one that fit my budget and family needs. It means a lot when a company will do everything they can to earn your trust through the process. The day I picked up my Explorer, Zach came in on his day off to go through all the tech features of it and made sure all my questions were answered. Thanks again guys!

I wasn't sure I wanted to stay with a ford (I had an explorer) but after talking with Anthony, I knew I couldn't go wrong having him in my corner when things went wrong (and they will, nothing is perfect)! Zach was fun and helpful during or test drive of an expedition and Anthony got it done! I've never been more confident in my decision on an suv than I was for this upgrade! McGrath ford is where it's at! They are 100% by you and will walk you through everything! I am a no BS person and there was none! Thank you SO MUCH for getting me into what my family and I needed (space and style) and being upfront out of the gate! Much appreciated! I LOVE MY EXPEDITION!! Thank you guys for being so awesome and I know if/when I have questions, concerns or problems, you'll be there! You're amazing!
