Performance Specs of the Explorer

With the available 3L EcoBoost® V6 engine, you can enjoy even greater capabilities with your new SUV. This can create up to 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, as well as help the Explorer tow a maximum of 5,600 pounds when properly equipped. Plus, the V6 engine comes paired with the Intelligent 4WD system to provide the traction needed to drive through snow or over uneven terrain safely.

The third powertrain option is the available hybrid engine. With it, the Explorer can maximize each gallon of gas while driving around the city or along the highway.

Safety Features

To give you an even more confident driving experience, the Explorer comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360™ driver-assistive technologies. With them, the vehicle will be able to help you stay centered in your lane, aware of approaching cars in your blind spot, and even automatically apply the brakes when you need to stop quickly.

There are also additional safety technologies you can get that can help in even more situations. With them, the Explorer can also help you safely travel with the flow of traffic on the highway, and park into any open space along the street or in a lot.
