Of the top 50 vehicles researched on the Kelley Blue Book Web site, the totally redesigned Ford Explorer ranked number one in the sport utility vehicle category and number six overall, according to Kelly Blue Book.
Kelley Blue Book said its Web site had more than four million visitors last month with a large percentage showing interest in SUVs and full-sized pickups. Requests for pricing reports related to the Explorer fell just behind those for the full-sized Chevrolet and Ford Pickups, the Honda Accord and Civic and the Toyota Camry.
