Ford Explorer Auto Shipping

2011 Ford Explorer XLTThe Ford Explorer was introduced by the Ford Motor Company in 1990 after its discontinuation of the Ford Bronco II lineup, which had seen lagging sales during its final few years in production. The Explorer was Ford’s first true breakthrough into the emerging SUV market; the Bronco didn’t grab customers the way that the Explorer did, and virtually overnight the Explorer became the flagship of the SUV market. It was released as a mid-size SUV, though in 2011 Ford redesigned the Explorer to fit in the full-size crossover-SUV class, though it doesn’t change anything in terms of your auto transport experience. It may have grown a bit, but it’s still the same Explorer as before, and most vehicle shipping companies will price it the same way as any other Explorer.


Currently the Explorer is sold in three models: the Explorer, the XLT and the Limited, starting from cheapest to most expensive. All Explorer models come with the same engine, but the base model features single-zone manual air conditioning, hill start assist and cloth-trimmed seats, along with some other features. MSRP on the Explorer is $28,870. The XLT is the next Explorer model up from the basic Explorer, but it comes with Sirius XM satellite radio, a reverse sensing system and other features that put it a bit higher in price than its little brother – $32,345 vs. $28,870. The Limited, the most expensive Explorer model at $37,855, but it comes with features such as the MyFord Touch system and the Microsoft-designed Sync platform. Push-start capabilities, heated front seats and Intelligent Access also adds to the price of the Limited.


The Ford Explorer has been around for a long time, so most auto transport companies know the best way to handle the transport of one. Whether it’s a 1991 or a 2012 Explorer, your car shipping company should have all the answers when it comes to planning your shipment. The Explorer has long been able to fit on the back of a vehicle transport carrier, not to mention in enclosed carriers, but it’s always best to double-check with your representative about possible oversize/overweight vehicle fees. The Explorer is usually immune to such things, but if yours has been lifted or is bigger than normal, be sure to have the dimensions of it for your auto transport company.
