MANITOWOC, Wis., March 15, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- It is near impossible to consider a vehicle without first considering its fuel economy. Fuel efficiency has become one of the top selling points for prospective car buyers, but many drivers don't want to have to compromise performance for a greener drive or a smaller car. The 2013 Ford Explorer in Manitowoc, WI is the solution with its SUV capability and intelligent fuel-saving options. The new Ford in Manitowoc WI is available at Maritime Ford showing drivers that going green isn't just for compact hybrids anymore.
The latest Ford Explorer is available with the 2.0-liter I-4 EcoBoost engine that earns the best-in-class fuel economy of 28 mpg hwy. Drivers may hear the term "fuel efficiency" and think that results in less power, but the capable SUV pumps out 240 horsepower and 270 lb-ft of torque to tow, haul, and transport any amount of cargo. The engine's lightweight aluminum construction offers the power drivers want with the efficiency and aerodynamics they need.
Even when outfitted with the standard 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Explorer achieves up to 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque and 24 mpg hwy. The SUV is impressive in its ability to offer a no-compromise drive that's exciting and good for the conscience.

Smart performance has to start with a strong foundation, which is why the automaker gave the Explorer the premier lightweight composite body frame.
