To those currently residing in Syracuse, NY, Fuccillo Ford is a highly reputable dealership that offers their Ford vehicles at extremely affordable rates.
The 2016 Explorer Base trim configuration is a beautiful sight for an SUV as it resembles a Range Rover, which is definitely a good attribute.

Moving to each side of the vehicle, the Explorer sports massive 18” alloy wheels that match well with body-colored side mirrors with turn signal indicators. In the back of the SUV, Ford has designed the Explorer with an automatic tailgate release that is powered in two ways: Remote Keyless Entry and Foot-activated Liftgate.
One thing that passengers can expect from the 2016 Explorer Base is total comfort and luxury. The cabin of the SUV is designed to spaciously hold 5 passengers. Its cabin has a third row cargo area for placing personal items. The entire interior of the vehicle is decked out in leather, fabrics, and other high quality material.
