When you're driving a large crossover SUV, you want to get the most bang for your buck. In this case, you're going to want to check out the 2016 Ford Explorer. With its 3.5-liter V6 engine, you're going to earn up to 17 city/24 highway mpg. Compare that to the used 2010 Ford Explorer V6, which only earned 14/20 mpg at best.
Got safety on your mind? Welcome to the club. For maximum protection for you and your family, you're going to want to go with the 2016 Ford Explorer. It offers a range of high-tech equipment that wasn't available at all in the used 2010 Ford Explorer. To start, there's the MyKey system, which lets you set speed limitations for secondary drivers, like teens or valets. The Curve Control system monitors speed carried into a corner and, if required, automatically decelerates to keep you safe. With the 180-degree front camera, parallel parking has never been easier. Combine that with the rearview camera, which helps you back out of cramped parking spaces, and you're all set.
Then there's the advanced safety systems, which scan your surroundings and let you know about any potential dangers. For instance, the lane-departure system alerts you when you swerve outside of the proper lines. The lane-keeping assist feature will actively help you stay on the right track. The blind-spot warning system monitors those hard-to-see areas behind you and warns you when a vehicle approaches them. The forward collision warning system will not only let you know when you need to slow down - it will actually prime the brakes if you fail to act quickly enough.
With both models, you'll see some excellent crash test scores. In government crash tests, both Explorers earned a perfect five-star rating for overall protection. The Insurance Institute for Highway Safety gave both models its top score of "Good."
There's no contest: the 2016 Ford Explorer has a major edge over the used 2010 Ford Explorer. First of all, it'll save you plenty of money at the pump. That's a big deal in this segment. Secondly, the 2016 Explorer gives you a wide range of safety features that weren't available in 2010. These high-tech gadgets will boost your vigilance behind the wheel.
