Three powerful engines with towing and 4WD capabilities combined with countless amenities and connectivity features make the Explorer a perfect choice for any occasion.

New Trim Package

The Explorer is iconic for being rugged yet highly refined with a sporty edge. This model year features the all-new XLT Sport Appearance package, which 2017 Ford Explorer reviews love because it offers premium accessories for a more affordable price. On the exterior, the XLT package includes black roof-rack side rails, blackout treatments on headlamps and tail lamps and 20-inch metallic wheels.

Inside, the XLT package upgrades the base cloth seating to leather-trimmed upholstery with suede inserts and adds a leather-wrapped steering wheel. The spacious cabin is clean and modern and features the updated SYNC system with voice control. Higher trim models include more amenities like ambient lighting, a heated steering wheel, push-button start, a twin-panel moon roof, Nirvana leather seating and more.

Three Powerful Engine Choices

The Explorer's base engine is a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 that makes 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. An optional 2.3L Ecoboost engine that makes a comparable 280 horsepower with significantly more torque at 310 lb.-ft. is available with a 4WD system. On Sport and Platinum models, a powerful 3.5L V6 turbo DI engine delivers 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque.

All engines are mated to a 6-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with wheel-mounted paddle shifters. Sport and Platinum models also come standard with Intelligent 4WD System with Hill Descent Control and the Terrain Management System that features four terrain modes. The 2017 Ford Explorer reviews love that the SUV has a high towing capacity of 5,000 pounds and comes with available tow packages that include a hitch and other accessories.
