2011 Ford Explorer with 2.0l EcoBoost engine to deliver 26 mpg on highway

Article by Christian A., on August 29, 2010

Ford's 2011 Explorer model, which is equipped with the 2.0l EcoBoost engine, offers a 30% improvement in fuel consumption figures over the existing V6 units.

With that claim, we can easily estimate that this new Explorer can give 18 mpg city (13l/100 km), 26 mpg highway range as opposed to the average Explorer's 14 mpg in the city (16l/100 km) and 20 mpg on the highway (11l/100 km).

In a statement, Mark Fields, Ford The Americas president, said that the all-new Explorer offers customers the luxury, convenience, and capability they´ve come to expect from an Explorer plus the fuel economy that they need.

Fuel economy was improved with the weight reduction as well as the introduction of the EcoBoost technology on the Explorer.

To make the Explorer as eco as possible, it now features electric power-assisted steering, battery management, fast engine warm-up and aggressive deceleration fuel shutoff.

Fields said that Explorer owners have informed the carmaker about their desire for a vehicle that offers capability with convenience, and improved fuel economy without compromised performance.

He claims that Ford has hit the mark with the next-generation Explorer, with the likelihood to change perceptions of what a modern SUV is all about.
