General info

1.Has four-wheel drive
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
Four-wheel drive is a system where torque is distributed to all four wheels of the vehicle. It is beneficial in some circumstances such as providing increased traction in tricky weather conditions, but is most suited to off-road driving.
2.Has fully independent suspension
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
This allows all four wheels to move up and down independently, providing a smoother ride when, for example, going over bumps in the road.
3.Has front-wheel drive
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
Front-wheel drive is the most common type of drivetrain and offers several advantages. It is cheaper to manufacture (reducing the cost of the vehicle) and also lighter which helps improve fuel economy. Due to having the weight of the engine over the drive wheels it also benefits from increased traction.
The basic warranty of a car covers all aspects other than parts which are subject to normal wear and tear, such as windscreen wipers and brake pads. It lasts either a certain number of years or amount of kilometres driven.
5.Has air suspension
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
Air suspension offers a smoother ride than the traditional steel spring suspension. It is also often adjustable, allowing you to raise or lower it based on the type of driving you are doing.
6.Has rear-wheel drive
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
Rear-wheel drive benefits from increased traction when accelerating, as the weight of the vehicle shifts to the rear over the drive wheels. The weight of the car is also more evenly distributed, resulting in improved handling.

Dimensions

1.width

2m

2.27m

The width represents the horizontal dimension of the product. We consider a smaller width better because it assures easy maneuverability.
2.wheelbase

2.87m

2.96m

The wheelbase is the distance between the center of the front and rear wheels. A longer wheelbase provides the car with more stability and a smoother ride (although a shorter wheelbase can provide more responsive handling).
More headroom in the front of the car makes for a more comfortable driving experience, and is especially important for taller people.
More headroom in the rear of the car makes for a more comfortable passenger experience, and is especially important for taller people. It is also useful if you are transporting cargo in the rear of the vehicle.
The ground clearance is the distance between the lowest point of the car and the road surface. A shorter ground clearance lowers a vehicle’s center of gravity - increasing its handling ability and reducing the chance of a rollover. However, a higher ground clearance allows you to go over more uneven terrain.
6.interior volume

4850.7l

2180l

A larger interior volume makes for a more comfortable driving experience, giving more space for you and your passengers.

Engine

1.Has a turbocharged engine
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
A turbocharger compresses the air entering the cylinders, allowing more air (and therefore more fuel) to be added - resulting in a more powerful explosion. This leads to an increase in horsepower without increasing the size and weight of the engine.
2.Has Stop-Start system
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
A Stop-Start system automatically turns off the engine when stopping in traffic or at a red light, and seamlessly starts it again when pressure is applied to the accelerator. This saves fuel and is more ecological.

Features

Airbags are designed to cushion occupants in the event of an impact. The standard number is around six, but some cars now incorporate additional ones, such as knee airbags, side airbags, and side curtain airbags.
2.Has a rear-view camera
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
A rear-view camera (also known as a back-up camera) provides a view of behind the vehicle, helping to prevent accidents. It is particularly useful in vehicles with large blind spots such as pickup trucks.
3.Has in-car system
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
An in-car system (e.g., Ford SYNC, Apple CarPlay) offers extra functionalities, such as navigation, taking phone calls (when linked to your smartphone) and controlling music.
4.Has height-adjustable seat belts
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
Height-adjustable seat belts permit passengers of different sizes to move the seat belt up or down for improved comfort. They are also especially useful for increasing the safety of children.
5.Has stolen vehicle tracking system
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
The vehicle has a tracking system that utilizes GPS, allowing you to locate it in case it is stolen.
6.Has smart key as standard
Ford Explorer (2017)
Tesla Model X P90D (2016)
A smart key is a wireless key that offers several benefits over a traditional key. For example when you approach the car the doors will automatically unlock, and you can turn the engine on with the press of a button.
