Changes to the Ford Explorer throughout its History

The 1991 Ford Explorer marked the debut of this SUV and it was initially available with two or four doors and the choice of two-wheel drive or four-wheel drive. The two-door actually had a slightly shorter platform than its four-door counterpart. The idea was that those looking for a maneuverable, sporty vehicle would opt for the two-door and those who needed extra passenger room would choose the four-door. This 1991 Explorer was offered in three trims with available features like aluminum wheels and blacked-out exterior accents. It ran on a 155-horsepower, 4.0-liter V6 engine.

The second-generation Explorer began the 1995 model year with a facelift that included new light clusters and a new grille along with new bumpers and a downward-sloping nose. The Explorer also grew four inches in length, front side airbags were added, and a ControlTrac 4WD system was also added. The 210-horsepower V8 engine became available in 1996. The second generation offered four trims for the four-door model and a single one for the two-door model. The third-generation Explorer arrived in 2002 with an independent suspension and a longer wheelbase to create room for the third row. Ford also enhanced driving dynamics and ride comfort. Ford made numerous safety upgrades throughout this generation, eventually adding Sync and revised navigation near the end of the generation. There was another redesign for 2011, marking the new generation that you are more likely to see on the roads today.
