Austin Police Sgt. Zachary LaHood told CBS News he’s “lucky to be alive” after experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning from a leak in his Ford Explorer. Six other Austin police officers have also been treated for carbon monoxide exposure in the last week, so the department has taken 37 of its Ford Explorer Police…
Being pregnant, I’m told, sucks. At least that’s what my wife says. Perhaps that’s why this pregnant Asheville, North Carolina, woman decided to run over the jackass who broke into her Ford Explorer and stole her purse. After an exhausting day of pregnancy, maybe running the alleged thief over seemed like a pretty…
Quad exhausts are cool, mostly as a visual sign that cool noises and a lot of power might be coming from whatever the four pipes are connected to. That’s not really the case on the 2018 Ford Explorer, but it still looks cool.
When Ford started with its now-popular Police Interceptor Utility, a Ford Explorer police vehicle, it was easy to spot one from a quarter mile. You could then slam your brakes, get down to the speed limit, and goose it as the car faded in your rearview. But now Ford has new LED lights that make it damn near impossible…
Watch as this squad car chases after a red light runner and ends up crashed and flipped onto its roof before even crossing the intersection. Thankfully everyone made it out of this wreck with minor injuries but, just, wow.
Since becoming available in March 2012, 64% of the Police Interceptors sold by Ford in the United States were Explorer Police Interceptor Utilities. U.S. sales othe Taurus Police Interceptor Sedan declined in 6% in calendar year 2014, fell a further 5% in 2015, and are down 2% through the first three months of 2016.
The cop-spec Ford Explorer, known as the Interceptor Utility, has become one of the most popular cop cars for departments across the country. Unfortunatley that means some of them get in the line of fire, so Ford is adding optional doors they say can withstand armor piercing bullets. Want to see if they work?
Poor Matt Farah was trying to have a time of his life driving a supercharged Lamborghini Huracan in the canyons of California when he ran into this logger man, dragging a big chunk of tree just down the road. And breaking things.
The Ford Explorer is the best selling SUV in its class and older models stand up well to dinosaur attacks. What do you need to know before you buy a Ford Explorer? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
What do you get when you mix up an X5, an Explorer, and throw in a dash of Durango? You get the 2016 Kia Sorento, that just made its US debut at the LA Auto Show. It is easy to dismiss the Korean mid-sizer, but the Sorento may be the best alternative to the usual suspects like the Highlander and Pilot.
The latest version of America's most iconic SUV gets the 2.3 Ecoboost from the Mustang and a bit of active aero for reduced drag. Of course you can still have one with real wood on your steering wheel!
The Ford Explorer Police Interceptor is the new darling of law enforcement agencies big and small, thanks to its equipment (and perp) carrying abilities, all-wheel drive, and intimidating hugeness. But the police SUV just got a black eye in the form of a federal investigation into its brakes.
The 24 Hours of LeMons is part motorsports, part theater. Nobody does the theater part better than Speedycop. You know, the guy who made the upside down Camaro. Well, here's a perfect Jurassic Park Explorer recreation from him. And it's going racing this weekend.
There were four recalls from Ford today, including two big ones affecting 1.1 million SUVs sold in North America. The trouble for Escape, Explorer and Mercury Mariner owners is a power steering system that could fail.
From Truck Yeah!: There was nothing particularly special about the first generation Ford Explorer, 'til it rolled with mother flippin' dinosaurs in one of the cinematic masterpieces of my generation. Christopher Orgeron agrees; he's two years into building the ultimate Jurassic Park Explorer replica complete with…
There was nothing particularly special about the first generation Ford Explorer, 'til it rolled with mother flippin' dinosaurs in one of the cinematic masterpieces of my generation. Christopher Orgeron agrees; he's two years into building the ultimate Jurassic Park Explorer replica complete with big-brick TVs inside.
It's not a huge surprise Ford has kept most of the police car market even after the Crown Victoria was discontinued. But what looked like the heir apparent, the Taurus in a police uniform, is being outsold by the Ford Explorer-based Police Interceptor Utility. America loves its SUVs.
Could you ever take a Toyota Prius with flashing red and blue lights in your rear view mirror seriously? I don't think I could, but the mayor of Seattle thinks the hybrids would be a great option for his city's police department. The cops, unsurprisingly, do not agree.
We all miss the Ford Crown Victoria, but it looks like police officers have finally found a viable replacement that can meet their needs, and it's not a sedan.
