THROWBACK THURSDAY The 1977 Ford F-150 Explorer
The Ford Explorer is best known today for being one of the most popular models in the history of the sport utility vehicle segment, but back in the late 1970s, Explorer was a special premium upgrade package for the Ranger trimline of the Ford F-100 and F-150 pickup.
Since 1990, Ford has sold more than 7 million Explorers. If you have one of them and are thinking about getting a newer one, you don’t have much longer to wait until the 2016 models hit your local dealer’s lot.
This week’s Tire Smokin’ video features a 1st gen Ford Explorer which is owned by someone who wants to do a big, smoky burnout at any cost.
If you are looking for a fun to drive sport utility vehicle, Ford Motor Company has you covered with two very good options – the Edge Sport and the Explorer Sport.
