I recently tested the two door version of this vehicle--one of the most popular SUVs on the market today.
The two door version was surprisingly small inside, as is the cargo area. The back seat seats only two, adults or children. There is no room for a third, middle seat belt.
These drawbacks aside, the Explorer performed like a charm in a variety of city and suburban environments -- the kind of terrain most buyers nowadays frequent. It would be difficult carrying lumber inside the vehicle, but I had no problem with a week's groceries and a number of small bushes from the nursery.
During a particularly hot and humid week, the Explorer's AC system, including a separate set of control in the rear, kept four passengers quite comfortable.
The two door version is more economical than the four door, but after a while, securing young kids in the back seat becomes a tiresome and awkward chore. The two door version, then, is most suitable for families with children who are no longer in car seats or special harnesses.
This SUV was pretty much the same as the 4-door. Though, it was really annoying to push the seat up and down to get into the back. Also, I don't see the point of it being so expensive if it's smaller than a little infinity G20! I mean the Explorer only has 4 seats!
