Summary

The 2008 Ford Explorer Eddie Bauer V8 is a midsize SUV that competes with models like the Chevy TrailBlazer, Jeep Grand Cherokee, Toyota 4Runner, and Nissan Pathfinder. It features a body-on-frame construction and is available with either a V6 or V8 engine. The Explorer was completely redesigned in 2006 and offers improved steering, suspension, and brakes compared to previous models. It is quieter, rides better, and has a more improved interior. The Explorer offers a smooth ride and decent handling, and can be configured with five, six, or seven-passenger seating. It also has excellent safety ratings and is capable of towing up to 7,310 pounds. New features for the 2008 model year include standard side curtain airbags, voice activation for the optional navigation system, and optional features like a capless fueling system, 20-inch wheels, and Ford’s Sync entertainment and communication system. Despite the rise in popularity of crossover SUVs, the Explorer remains a good choice for families that require towing capabilities.

Frequently Asked Questions about Ford

How are VIN numbers stamped?

VIN numbers are typically stamped onto a metal plate, which is then attached to the vehicle. The stamping process involves using a series of dies to imprint the alphanumeric characters onto the plate. This plate is often affixed to the dashboard near the windshield, on the driver’s side door frame, or in the engine compartment. The stamping is done in a way that ensures durability and longevity, making the VIN easily readable throughout the vehicle’s lifespan.

How do you read a VIN number year?

The 10th digit of the VIN represents the vehicle’s model year. You can identify the model year of any vehicle using our free VIN decoder. If you have a VIN number year chart, you can also identify the model year of any vehicle by cross-checking the 10th digit with the chart.

Does the VIN number tell the manufacture date?

Yes, the VIN number provides information about the vehicle’s manufacture date. The easiest way to find the manufacture date of any Ford is by decoding the VIN number. Our VIN decoder effectively checks the model year of the vehicle for free. Enter or scan the VIN into the form above to get started.

Can VIN number tell engine size?

Yes, the VIN number can provide information about the engine size. The Vehicle Descriptor Section (VDS), which consists of digits 4 through 9 in the VIN, includes codes that specify details such as the engine type, model, and body style. By decoding these digits, you can gather information about your vehicle’s engine size. You can also check the engine size on any vehicle using our free VIN decoder.
