Ford Explorer 2011 - new outside and inside
Ford has already produced the sixth generationfamous off-roader Explorer. Designers and engineers have done a great job in terms of the image of the Ford Explorer 2011. That's why the car has become new in all respects.
Ford Explorer 2011 is on a par withSUVs equipped with a load-bearing body. The car is produced with both front and all-wheel drive. The Ford brand was repeatedly criticized due to insufficient controllability, which is why the developers of the model decided to save the car from the frame. The car was provided with a load-bearing body and a multi-link rear suspension. Of course, this could not but affect the off-road qualities of the car. To fill this gap, the engineers of the company developed a system that creates an intelligent all-wheel drive and has several motor modes. This system changes the algorithm of the transmission, depending on what mode of operation the car is in. The Explorer also has systems that help with descent and ascent.
Explorer Ford gets a new Curve systemControl, which allows you to extract information from a large number of sensors located on the body of the car. It can be information regarding the angular acceleration of the car or body roll. When the driver makes a sharp turn, the system will immediately start working on data collection. If the car is threatened with overturning, Curve Control will automatically reduce the speed.
To increase passenger safety,For the first time for the car, safety belts of inflatable type were used. In the event of a collision, a pyro cartridge is triggered, which inflates the airbag on the belt, which allows you to cover the whole thorax completely, preventing its defeat.
Ford Explorer 2011 is less by 45 kilograms, bycompared with its predecessor. For such a solid weight loss, it was decided to use light metals in the design. For example, for a car's hood, only aluminum is used. Aerodynamics was also improved: now the machine resists air at a level no higher than 0.35. According to the developers, no other car in this class could achieve this. Also Ford Explorer 2011 boasts an excellent level of noise insulation.
Under the hood of new items in the basic configuration fallsV-shaped engine for six cylinders, it runs on gasoline and has a volume of 3.5 liters. The unit is capable of producing 294 horsepower. The expense, of course, rather big, the city will have to spend 13 liters per hundred, and on the highway to 9. Also for the Ford Explorer 2011 there is a two-liter petrol engine with four cylinders, but it was additionally equipped with a turbine. And the engine is able to show all 240 "horses". For all units there is an "automatic" for four stages, and a quarter of the interior materials will be manufactured from secondary processing products.
Ford Explorer Sport - special versionExplorer, much higher in class than the classic model. High-speed characteristics of the novelty will show solid figures. However, due to increased capacity, there will be an increase in fuel consumption, which not everyone likes.
