What’s the Ford Explorer XLT’s top speed?
I was looking into getting a Ford Explorer XLT for my family, but I don’t know too much about it. I want just a middle-of-the-road, average-reliability, mid-size SUV, and I think the Explorer fits the bill. Could you tell me what its top speed is?
Answer provided by
The Ford Explorer XLT does have a reputation as a family vehicle—perfect for toting the kids and everything they may haul with them. The Ford Explorer XLT can reach a top speed of 145 mph without a governor.
Of course, you could have a governor and significantly reduce your speed if it would give you peace of mind while driving around your precious cargo. Additionally, there are three rows of seats and plenty of cargo space—plus, lots of tech and safety features.
The Explorer XLT is a trim level above the base, which already comes with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower. If you’d like to “go green”, you can select a hybrid powertrain. And for more power? Consider the 400-horsepower twin-turbo V6 option.
