Why did KBB.com name the 2016 Ford Explorer the Best Full-Size SUV/Crossover in its 5-Year Cost to Own Awards for the third year in a row? Because "no matter which Ford Explorer you go with or where you go with it, you can be confident knowing this full-size SUV will provide years of low-cost ownership." We couldn't agree more.2.
