The 2008 Ford Explorer has its good points and its bad points. Overall, though, it's a great family vehicle that emphasizes safety. Perfect for long road trips, the Explorer offers a lot of interior space that lets passengers spread out for maximum comfort. Just don't bring a lot of luggage or camping gear with you, though; it has less cargo room than many other SUVs of its size.

The 2008 Ford Explorer gets a few updates worth noting. Side curtain airbags are now standard on all trim levels. The Explorer also gets a new Sync system, which makes it easy to use hands-free devices of all types while driving. The navigation system, which is optional, now has voice activation. Twenty-inch rims are also optional for 2008 models.

The 2008 Ford Explorer doesn't look like anything special. It could just as easily be any other Ford SUV. In other words, it looks like an American-made SUV. It has a look suitable to what it is: a family-oriented SUV that gets the job done. It's not about looking fancy.

Roominess is a big draw for the 2008 Ford Explorer. Choose one with a third-row seat, and you can easily fit seven adults into the cab. By doing so, however, you’ll lose quite a bit of cargo space. The five-passenger version has 85.8 cubic feet of cargo space, but the seven-passenger version has 83.7 cubic feet. That's not a huge amount to lose, but 85.8 cubic feet isn't really that much to start with, especially in this vehicle class. Unfortunately, the second row can only recline in models that include a third row of seats.

The 2008 Explorer is also plagued with an interior that looks a little cheap compared to some of its competitors. The plastic controls certainly aren't going to win any beauty awards.

The Explorer does have some interior features worth touting. It comes standard with full power accessories, a stereo that plays CDs and MP3s, an auxiliary input jack, and air-conditioning. Move up to the Eddie Bauer version and you also get heated front seats, leather upholstery, and a faux-wood trim that doesn't look terrible. The top-of-the-line Limited model throws in dual-zone automatic climate control with a separate A/C for the rear and a power front seat with memory settings.
