Technology and safety go hand-in-hand on the new Ford Explorer. Some of the advanced safety features available on the new Explorer include a Blind Spot Information System, intelligent cruise control, and an active anti-collision system to help detect and respond to dangerous situations. The 2017 model year hasn't been tested yet, but considering last year's Explorer recieved a perfect five out of five rating for overall crash protection, the 2017 Explorer is sure to perform the same.
The Ford Explorer is available with three advanced engines. The standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 makes the Explorer a powerful towing machine, giving it a max towing capacity of 5,000 pounds (2,268 kg) and a fuel efficiency of 9.7 L/100 km on the highway and 13.9 L/100km in the city. For the best fuel efficiency, the Explorer can be equipped with a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that gives you the power of a V6 combined with a fuel efficiency of 8.6 L /100 km on the highway and 12.6 L/100km in the city. Do you want power? The Ford Explorer Sport's 3.5L EcoBoost engine delivers an astounding 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque, putting it at the top of its class.
The 2017 Explorer's frame is made to be both lightweight and strong thanks to advanced materials like high-strength boron steel reinforced A- and B-pillars that improve roof strength while reducing weight. XLT models up the style a notch with chrome bodyside accents, while dual chrome-style exhaust tips come standard on all models. LED taillights are also standard. With 20" sport-styled wheels and unique sport-style accents, the Explorer Sport can't be topped when it comes to style.
Flexible seating for seven comes standard with the Ford Explorer's second row that features 60/40 fold-flat bench seats that make opening up extra storage easy. The third row can also be folded to open up a cavernous 2,285 litre storage area, giving you more than enough room for those big loads. The available PowerFold third-row seat lets you fold down the second row at the push of a button.
