We at Damerow Ford would like to recognize and thank our most recent customers, Tyler and Bonnie! The two came in and purchased a new Ford Explorer, and we want to wish them the very best as they begin their journey in this excellent SUV!
We love our customers at Damerow Ford! Thanks to each and every one of you for your support.
In a recent test drive, Motor Trend found the new 2011 Explorer to offer a smoother, quieter ride than previous models. Thanks in large part to Alan Mulally’s push for quicker updates to Ford models, the Explorer’s new architecture offers better packaging, fuel mileage, handling, and maneuverability.
In response to the Firestone tire tread separation problems of the past, the Explorer is well-equipped with new standard safety features which include AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Safety Canopy with rollover sensor. It also adds Curve Control, which reduces engine torque by braking in tight curves when the system senses the driver is going too quickly. And it pioneers the industry’s first inflatable seatbelts.
The new vehicle not only comes loaded with a lot of standard features, it also offers a road/off-road surface-control system called Terrain Management. With no transfer cases, Terrain Management manipulates torque to each of the wheels with four driver-selected settings that can be shifted on the fly: normal, mud, sand, and snow. And soon, Ford will add the turbo-charged EcoBoost as the optional engine.
The new Explorer will handle any country road, any season, as well as most traditional SUVs. – Todd Lassa Motor Trend Magazine

Deemed a “modern interpretation of the SUV”, the new Explorer offers three configurations, all with an improved exterior look, three rows of seats, Ford’s highest quality interior, intelligent AWD and choice between two innovative engines.
The 2011 Ford Explorer offers either the new fuel-saving EcoBoost turbocharged four-cylinder engine, or (for those that want to tow) an optional 3.5-liter V6 that puts out 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft. of torque. In addition, it rides on a unibody platform derived from the automaker’s D3 platform rather than the separate frame of the outgoing model. Plus it’s just a great looking vehicle inside and out.
Ford has allowed the market to seek its own level and the result is that buyers now have a choice to receive all the on and off-road power, connectivity, and safety technologies that were once only available in luxury SUVs. – Mark Elias, Left Lane News
