Ford Explorer Styling

About the Ford Explorer

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.

What the Critics Say

“The switch back to traditional rear-wheel drive (all-wheel drive is optional) makes sense on many levels. Handling and overall balance improve dramatically when you stop trying to steer and power a vehicle from the same end. Towing stability and powertrain selection also benefit. Indeed, the Explorer is one of the better choices in the midsize three-row SUV class for towing.” — Edmund

“Although certainly spacious and family friendly, the latest Explorer is for those who want their SUV to have guts. The standard 2.3-liter turbo engine pumps out more power and torque than its competitors’ V6 engines, while bettering their fuel economy as well. The optional V6 engines, meanwhile, are turbocharged and obliterate everything else in the segment, topping out at 400 horsepower in the Explorer ST.” —  Autoblog

Ford Explorer Performance

Capable Performance

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.
