Ontario Drivers are Embracing SUVs. Should You?
Peer pressure isn’t always a bad thing. Case in point, more and more Americans are buying SUVs. More importantly, after they buy them, they stick with them. A whopping 66 percent of SUV drivers, when upgrading to a new car at the beginning of 2017, bought another SUV. That’s a 14 point jump over SUV loyalty from just five years ago.
Why do all of these people love SUVs? Because of cars like the 2017 Ford Explorer. Equipped with three rows of seating (two of which can fold down for cargo space), it can carry up to seven passengers. Add convenience features like the voice-operated Sync 3 infotainment system and safety devices like Ford’s Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) and adaptive cruise control, and you get a vehicle that keeps everyone happy, safe, and comfortable.
Better yet, when the situation calls for it, the Explorer has enough power to double as a utility vehicle. While its standard 3.5 liter V6 engine might not have the raw power of the Ford F-150, its 290 horsepower and 5,000 pound towing capacity should still be plenty for those moments when you need to move something big.
