1991 Ford Explorer Sport Utility Vehicle

Date:

Creator:
Ford Motor Company

Sport utility vehicles -- tall, boxy light trucks with high ground clearance, substantial cargo capacity, and often featuring four wheel drive -- have long been used by people living in rural areas. In the late 1980s urban families adopted them as replacements for sedans and minivans. The 1991 Explorer was Ford's entry into this new market and it soon became the best selling vehicle in the class.
