Explorer is ONE very large ride...I think it's over kill if there are only two people.....for those with extended families or Large families I can see the use for one, when you factor 5 adults and all the luggage. If I needed more room, I would consider the MKX (which I initially did)...but we have no use for additional room.
I find the MKC VERY nimble and compared to the other stablemates, a lot less unsprung weight to lug around...I also find the 2.3 turbo engine gets pretty perky, especially when you're in S mode & paddle shifting!
