The Story Of Sergei Udachin, Konstantin Bolotov

The first generation of Ford Explorer SUV produced in the United States with three – and five-door body since 1990. These full – and rear-wheel drive cars equipped with a 155-horsepower four-liter “six” in tandem with a five-speed “mechanics” or four-stage “automatic”.

In 1995, the market was removed, the second generation model, possessing a more streamlined body shape and a modern interior. Three – and five-door SUVs were equipped with more powerful “six” 4.0 (208 HP) and “eight” of 5.0 (213 HP). With them were associated four – and five-speed automatic and manual transmission. The machine was equipped with four-wheel drive transmission of three types: permanent Full-Time AWD without a downshift, pluggable Part-Time, as the first generation model, and ControlTrac 4WD with three modes (rear, auto and low gear). Since 2001, the model also produced with a utility body pickup.

The third generation of the SUV was released in 2002. It was a larger car, purely five-door. Its engine range remained steady at 213-strong 4.0 V6 and a new aluminum 240-horsepower 4.6 V8. First, the SUV was equipped with a five-speed manual or automatic transmission, and in 2003 — only “automatic”. The third generation of the Explorer has a full third row of seats, making the car a seven-seater.

The fourth generation Explorer went on sale in 2006. This car, built on a new, more durable frame company Magna, equipped with the same “six” 4.0 and a 300-horsepower 24-valve mysterously “eight” 4.6, but in tandem with five – and six-speed “automatic” respectively.

The “fifth” Explorer debuted in 2010 on a new platform Ford D4 (modified D3). From frame SUV model turned into a crossover with a monocoque body. The multimedia abilities of the machine at the time were puzzled by so much that we had to connect to test IT. Then on the test Drive got Explorer Sport, and twice. In 2014 was a one – restyling, and in 2017 another.
