Gear up for adventure with a 2017 Ford Explorer – the classic three-row family hauler that’s built with muscle and grace. The three available engines offer towing capability as well as stability on road and off, while the refined interior provides convenience and comfort for up to seven passengers. Take a look into what makes this mid-size crossover so popular and discover your reason to love it, too.

The Explorer is available in five outstanding trim levels starting with the base, then going up to XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum levels. Drivers can choose from the beginning 3.5-liter V-6 engine for the base, XLT, and Limited, with the 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost I-4 engine available. For the Sport and Platinum models, engine power comes in the form of a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V-6. All engine options will be paired with a silky smooth six-speed automatic transmission so you can easily shift through corners, steep grades, and more.

This driver-centric cockpit makes every commute a joy thanks to the easily accessible controls, the open, airy feel, and plush, satisfying seats. There’s plenty of legroom in all three rows and available bucket-style seating in the middle row for added convenience and comfort. Heated and cooled front seats are available as well as a leather-wrapped steering wheel to keep you temperate, no matter the weather. And the intelligent SYNC® 3 system on the touchscreen dash allows you to seamlessly connect to your smartphone for music, navigation, hands-free texting so you never miss a beat on the road.

Safety comes first, according to Ford, which is why the 2017 Explorer comes with cutting-edge active safety technology to ensure your drive every time. Features include the available Lane-Keeping System to alert you if you start to drift over the lines on the road, as well as the Front 180-Degree Camera and Forward Sensing System that helps you see around corners in tight spaces, like parking lots. With these helpful assists plus well-placed airbags, you’ll have confidence for the road ahead.
