The 2006 Explorer is a traditional midsize SUV with body-on-frame construction. The standard safety package includes the automatic all-wheel-drive system and roll stability that intervenes with throttle and brakes when the vehicle senses an impending tipover situation. Seat side air bags, an new adaptive energy-absorbing steering column, a passenger classifier in the seat, and the TPMS. Ford says this truck meets all known future safety standard for front and side crash through 2010. With the V8, you get a brand new Ford-built six-speed automatic overdrive transmission with full electronic control of upshifting, downshifting and torque converter functions. It's a quiet, smooth and very pleasant, competent ride. Ford used the body-on-frame design to maximum advantage to quiet the truck down, isolate it from the road, and halt the transmission of noise and vibration. The AC system operates with 30 percent less noise yet moves and exchanges more air. Conversations are easily heard, the music sounds good, and the mirrors, with their new square corners defying aero logic, are mercifully quiet, as are the tires.
Chrysler PT cruiser combines the retro look of a late-'30s American sedan with modern performance, efficiency and features. Its interior volume and versatility compares well to a small SUV. Fold the seats down and you can carry an eight-foot ladder. Pull the rear seats out and you can haul a load of building materials or a big-screen TV. The PT Cruiser is shorter in length making it easy to park. And it's easy on gas. The Chrysler PT Cruiser appeals to people of all ages and lifestyles with its whimsical, retro design. Its practicality often closes the deal with a roomy, versatile interior that makes the price easy to justify. The GT models deliver strong acceleration performance and bring hot-rod credibility to this hot rod. The convertible offers genuine open-air fun and is great for carrying four people.
Crossovers are built on a car-like structure but combine the utility of a traditional truck-based SUV with the smoother ride and improved fuel economy of a car. The Journey rides reasonably well and handles more like a big car. It's on the inside that the Journey really shines. The Dodge Journey has standard seating for five, but that can be expanded to seven. Filling the Journey with adults won't make all your passengers happy, but the rear seat should work well for children. The better news is the utility the Journey offers. While cargo room is only average for the class, the Journey offers a fold flat front passenger seat that will allow loading items up to nine feet long. It also has several unique storage solutions that owners will find useful. These include a bin under the front passenger seat, storage under the floor in the second row and behind the last row of seats, a dual glove box with Dodge's Chill Zone that cools soda cans, and all the usual cubbies up front, including a fairly deep center console. For the young family on the go, the Journey will offer a pleasant ride, plenty of room, and enough storage and entertainment options to keep the kids occupied.
