Guns N’ Roses bassist Duff McKagan prefers to keep things simple. Even though McKagan could buy any car, he calls himself a “basic guy,” and Ford has been his go-to brand for years. Even his flashiest ride is decidedly understated, yet it’s surprisingly powerful.

McKagan splits his time between Los Angeles and Seattle, where his daily driver is a 2018 Ford Explorer Sport with a turbocharged six-cylinder engine that moves the SUV with authority.

“I just came back from over the mountain. I was going 90 on the I-90, and the car is kind of a performance car, believe it or not,” McKagan tells MotorTrend. “It’s got blacked-out windows and rims. My wife has a Range Rover down in L.A., and I prefer the Ford.” – READ MORE
