History of the Explorer

In 1991, Ford determined that it was time to replace their enormous Bronco II, and debuted the Explorer as their first big step in a new direction. Also lifting inspiration from the Ford Ranger, the Explorer quickly proved itself as a well-rounded option equally suited for daily commuting and long road trips. By 2011, it was ready for an update, and Ford released that year's model with a total redesign. The old truck-style frame was replaced by a solid unibody frame, reclassifying the Explorer as an SUV.

The change turned out to be perfect timing, as U.S. demand for SUVs skyrocketed soon after the redesign. The Explorer holds its own within the competitive SUV segment, and as Ford continues to update and enhance their star SUV, the Explorer presents refreshed value with each new year model.
