When the Ford Explorer debuted for the 1991 model year, it was one of the first family-focused SUVs available, and it helped pave the way for the modern SUV era. Three decades later, it remains one of the most popular nameplates in the industry, delivering an excellent combination of comfort, performance, and amenities. And with its recent redesign, Explorer is more stylish, capable, and accommodating than ever.

Of course, the segment has since expanded, and Fredericksburg drivers have a few more options to consider. However, Explorer welcomes all challengers, and head-to-head evaluations reveal a superior experience, the product of 30 years of continuous evolution. To help you in your research, Purvis Ford has created a few comparison pages so that you can see how it matches up against three of its most prominent competitors. Here's a quick look at some of the highlights. Click the links to see the full comparisons.
