As America’s all-time best-selling SUV, the Ford Explorer is now leaner, lighter, and stronger than ever before while simultaneously boasting the broadest model lineup in its storied history. Powerful yet efficient EcoBoost® engines and innovative new technology help you tackle all of life’s challenges. Totally redesigned from the ground up, rear-wheel drive architecture makes this the most capable Explorer ever. A reimagined interior comes packed with greater space and cutting-edge tech features. Standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ allows you to hit the streets with confidence by protecting you from the unexpected. Athletic styling enhancements help you stand out from the crowd of ordinary SUVs. From the capable XLT to the luxurious Platinum, there’s sure to be a Ford Explorer that perfectly suits your lifestyle and driving habits.
Ready to help conquer any obstacle that stands in your way, the Explorer rides on a rear-wheel drive platform which helps enhance on- and off-road capabilities. The re-engineered 2.3-liter engine produces 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque, with greater performance over the outgoing Explorer equipped with the same engine. As the backbone of the ST and Platinum powertrains, the available 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine generates either 365 or 400 horsepower depending on the trim. All Explorer models come paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission. For maximized efficiency, the Explorer Limited Hybrid is equipped with an advanced 3.3L Hybrid Powertrain. With the available 4WD with Terrain Management System,™ the Explorer is prepared for the road ahead. Standard trailer sway control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to maintain trailer control, great for hauling your biggest toys along for the weekend.
After carefully scrutinizing every detail, the interior of the Ford Explorer is designed to deliver the flexibility you need to create lasting memories. Giving you plenty of room for your next adventure, the Explorer offers up to 87 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row. Available multicontour seats with Active Motion® offer additional comfort for the driver and front passenger. Featuring room for up to 7 passengers, the optional third-row PowerFold® seats make it easy to accommodate both passengers and cargo. The stylish exterior is not only eye-catching, but it also helps create additional rear-seat headroom for one of the most spacious cabins in its class. An available 980-watt 14-speaker B&O premium audio system is sure to be a hit with music fans of all ages.
Continuing the brand’s push toward bringing more driver-assist technology to the market, the Ford Explorer comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360™, a suite of driver-assist technologies. These features include Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, a rearview camera with built-in lens cleaner, Lane-Keeping System, and auto headlamps with auto high-beams. Available Active Park Assist 2.0, a class-exclusive feature, allows the driver to park in a parallel or perpendicular spot with a touch of a button.
Standard SYNC® 3 and FordPass Connect™ Wi-Fi service deliver an unparalleled infotainment experience, viewed on either an 8-inch digital touchscreen or the available 10.1-inch capacitive portrait touchscreen.
