Interior and Cargo Space
Whether you enjoy taking family vacations on the open road or you’re a solo adventurer who wants to experience the great outdoors by car, kayak, bike, and foot, the Ford Explorer will be able to fit all your precious cargo.
When it comes to cargo capacity, you have a maximum of 87.8 cubic feet with the rear rows folded down. This gives you ample room to pack a mountain bike, camping gear, hiking equipment, and some coolers. If you have guests in the second row, you’ll still have up to 47.9 cubic feet to carry everyone’s luggage.
Although the amount of space you get inside the Ford Explorer is accommodating, there are so many interior features to look forward to. For instance, the standard tri-zone electric automatic temperature control will ensure that everyone is comfortable even when the front and rear passengers have different temperature preferences.
On higher trims, you’ll be able to add a range of available amenities like:
- Twin-panel moonroof
- Wireless charging pad
- 14-Speaker B&O® Sound System
- Leather seats
- Heated front and second-row seats
Performance for Different Needs
While an SUV makes for an ideal road-tripping vehicle, especially when you plan to go off the beaten path, not everyone chooses to adventure the same way. Understanding this and the variety of drivers that love the Explorer, this SUV provides you with multiple powertrains and capabilities to suit your exact taste.
For starters, the Ford Explorer establishes its authority with a mighty 2.3L 4-cylinder base engine that delivers 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it allows you to tow up to 5,300 pounds when properly equipped—perfect for your new speedboat.
If you prefer a sportier driving experience, the ST trim will be a great fit for you. It comes standard with a 3.0L V6 turbocharged engine that generates 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, giving you an extra energized ride. Standard Intelligent 4WD increases your SUV’s traction, giving you more control on the road.
Superior off-road prowess, on the other hand, will be achieved with the Timberline trim. This trim comes equipped with unique performance features to help you conquer unexplored territory:
- TORSEN® Limited-Slip Rear Axle
- Terrain Management System™
- 18-inch black aluminum wheels
- Front, rear, and underbody skid plates
