In this episode, we test out the fuel economy in the all new 2016 Ford Explorer. Sporting a 3.5-litre Ecoboost V6 engine, the Explorer has plenty of power to pull its weight.
Our tester was equipped with a 3.5-litre V6 Ecoboost engine. Our tests yielded 196.8km on a half tank of gas and gave a fuel economy of 16.2L/100km.
After using up a half tank of gas, we were able to fill it back up for $36.75 at a fuel cost of $1.046/liter. At that rate, expect to spend around $50 for a full tank of gas.
