Under the Hood
The Explorer has three engine options. The first engine in the lineup, a 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, produces up to 290 horsepower and 24 mpg on the highway.* The next step up is a 2.3-liter engine, producing 280 horsepower. The largest 3.5-liter engine produces 365 horsepower. Each engine is mated to a six-speed SelectShift Automatic® transmission, but you can opt for Ford’s Intelligent four-wheel drive (4WD) for added handling. This system has a built-in Terrain Management System on select trims as well.
The Explorer will keep you comfortable wherever you go thanks to a long list of luxury features. For example, the Explorer has a standard air filtration system to provide fresh air. There’s dual-zone automatic temperature control, a rear auxiliary climate control system, and multiple charge points around the cabin. Optional features like leather trim, a twin-panel moonroof, and ambient lighting optimize your experience behind the wheel too.
For those looking for a little added performance, safety, or luxury, there are additional packages to consider. For example, the Trailer Tow Package helps you tow and haul heavier loads while the Ford Safe and Smart™ Package is ideal for families or simply those who want added peace of mind.
