One of the cool parts about being an automotive journalist is that I get to drive a lot of cool cars throughout the year. While I don’t get to sample every new car hitting the streets, I do get a chance to drive some good ones. It should be noted that I really didn’t drive anything terrible this year, which is always a plus, but there are a few that stand out in my memory of being quite enjoyable. Here are the top five cars I feel I’ve driven this year. #5: Ford Explorer Platinum
While getting to drive any vehicle across the Canadian Rockies is a good time, we especially enjoyed spending that time in the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum edition.
It drives like any good Ford does, but has an interior that rival’s Lincoln’s Black Label and an amazing sound system. Plus, it’s cheaper than the Lincoln counterparts. While it might be unfair to compare the two brands, this Explorer has really stepped up its game.
