The 2015 Ford Explorer is Available in Boulder

Shoppers in the Boulder area interested in purchasing a full-size SUV that comes equipped with a variety of standard and available creature comforts may have considered the 2015 Ford Explorer. Here is a small sample of available amenities the new Ford Explorer has to offer:

  • MyFord Touch Infotainment with in-car Wi-Fi access
  • Climate controlled passenger and driver leather seats
  • Adaptive cruise control

While some customers might enjoy these conveniences, the new Ford Explorer is outmatched when it comes to the fuel efficiency, cargo capacity, and interior space of the 2015 Honda Pilot.

The new Honda Pilot gets better gas mileage than the new Ford Explorer. Both vehicles are powered by a 3.5L V6 engine, but the Pilot gets an estimated 18 mpg in the city and 25 mpg on the highway.* The Explorer only gets an estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, which means the Honda Pilot will save drivers more money on their fuel budget in the long run.

To transport up to 8 occupants at a time, the 2015 Honda Pilot’s spacious cabin is the ideal vehicle for the job. Its interior offers up to 153.7 cubic feet of passenger space. The 2015 Ford Explorer seats 7 passengers at a time and the interior is a bit smaller, as it comes in at 151.7 cubic feet of occupant volume.

Hauling large cargo is no problem for the new Honda Pilot also. With the third-row seating folded down, it can hold a total of 47.7 cubic feet of luggage with ease. The new Ford Explorer can only hold 43.8 cubic feet of cargo behind the second row.
