The power and driving dynamics of Explorer come wrapped in an eye-catching design that boasts authentic comfort and style. And because it was built for our modern active lives, you can also expect an interior space for the kids, the dog, the sports equipment, camping gear and just about everything else you may need on the road to adventure.
The first thing you'll notice about Explorer is its dynamic grille and distinctive front and rear LED signature lighting. So whether your adventures take you on- or off-road, Explorer has a presence that demands attention.
The Explorer Platinum's interior awes with its premium Nirvana leather featuring micro-perforations and quilted inserts, twin-panel moonroof, heated second-row bucket seats and a heated, leather-wrapped steering wheel with real wood accents and unique stitching. And its exterior stands out with its satin-chrome finish.
It's time to gear up and get in the game. Explorer has the power and plenty more dynamic features designed to help you play hard and get out there far beyond the roads more traveled.
The 3.5L Ti-VCT (twin independent variable camshaft timing) V6 delivers 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. With its variable control of valve cam timing, Ti-VCT can optimize performance across the entire low, mid and high ranges of the power band to match the driving conditions.
Hill start assist and Hill Descent Control™ help keep your vehicle's power and capability under control, particularly when you're towing. When you're stopped on an incline, standard hill start assist automatically works with the anti-lock brakes to hold the vehicle in place for up to two seconds while you move your foot from the brake to the accelerator. On 4WD models, you can activate standard Hill Descent Control™ so the braking system automatically engages as needed to help keep you in control while descending a steep grade.
What do we mean by capable? Spacious seating, excellent cargo room, available roofrack side rails and impressive towing to take you wherever and whenever adventure calls. Explorer also has available features like the hands-free, foot-activated liftgate, Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System, Hill Descent Control™ and 180-degree camera with split-view and washer.
The Terrain Management System is included with the available Intelligent 4WD System on Explorer and lets you shift on the fly into one of four settings to match the terrain. So whether the journey takes you through mud, sand, gravel, grass or snow, you can get through it and carry on with confidence and control.
