Ford’s Explorer is the luxury seven-seater SUV that carries families in comfort from the start to the finish of every adventure. The vehicle is stylish inside and out, while its advanced technology helps you to reach any destination with little inconvenience. There are more advancements under the bonnet too where your choice of powerful engine leads the car with verve and confidence.
The Explorer has a strong presence on the road with its tall stance and long shape. A large grille sits between automatic headlamps on a square front end which also features a protective molding along the edge of the bumper. The same robust material stretches around the car’s length to highlight its ability off the road. LED taillights make sure you are easily seen in poor weather and above them is a sporty spoiler over the large rear window. Subtle details such as the dual chrome exhaust tips and chrome door handles on select models confirm the car’s place towards the top of the market.
The interior is spacious and comfortable even when all seven seats are occupied as every inch has been thought about by Ford’s design team. Carpeted floor mats on the first and second row strengthen the feeling of luxury while overhead storage helps to make the cabin practical as well as sophisticated. For times when more storage space is needed the third row splits in half and folds, which means a fifth passenger can still be carried.
The Explorer is equipped with plenty of advanced technology that connects and entertains you during every journey. The MyFord system includes a 4.2-inch color LCD display integrated with the center stack and you can connect external music devices to it using the auxiliary jack. Steering wheel-mounted controls make it safer to operate the system and the cruise control function, while an upgrade to Ford SYNC adds voice commands.
Ford has also considered buyers taking shared ownership of the Explorer by including convenience features that make driving easier for both of them. The pedals are power adjustable and have a memory function to quickly set the preferred position for changing drivers.
Two engine options are offered across the range. The entry-level Explorer is fitted with a hard-working 3.5-litre Ti-VCT V6 engine that produces 290hp. It also delivers 346Nm of torque at 4,000rpm to power onwards comfortably even with a full cabin. The unit can be selected with two or four-wheel drive depending on the roads you expect to encounter and it sends power to both or one axle through a six-speed automatic gearbox. The alternative is a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 which offers 365hp, 474Nm of torque at 3,500rpm and excellent refinement. Top of the range Sport models ride on sport-tuned suspension and feature an Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System as standard.
Inside the SUV is one of the safest places to be on the road as it comes equipped with a host of technologies designed to prevent incidents. Traction control helps to correct a loss of grip and the Anti-lock Braking System (ABS) avoids skidding when braking heavily. All but the entry-level Explorer boast heavy-duty brake calipers that optimize the vehicle’s stopping ability.
