    Capability

    Whatever the challenge, you need an SUV that has what it takes. Explorer delivers the goods.​

    Dial up your adventure.

    Included with the available Intelligent 4WD System, the Terrain Management System™ allows you

    to dial in one of four specific terrain settings to maximize performance: Normal, Mud/Ruts, Sand

    and Grass/Gravel.

    ​The room is epic too.

    The Explorer can carry up to seven passengers. The second row features a 60/40 split-fold-flat 

    bench and available bucket seats and console, while the third row has a 50/50 split-folding seat. 

    Behind the third row, you’ll find up to 595 liters of cargo volume. For more cargo space, up to 2,314 

    liters, fold the second and third rows for a flat load surface.

    More power for more adventures.

    The available 3.5L EcoBoost engine employs direct injection, variable camshaft timing and parallel 

    twin turbochargers to deliver 370 PS/475 N.m.1

    What goes up must come down.

    Hill Descent Control™ allows you to set and maintain speeds while going down steep grades.

    Smart technology

    You want the latest thinking in SUV tech? Then Explorer is for you.

    ADVANCED TECHNOLOGY

    It sees what other SUVs can’t.

    Whether you’re pulling out of a driveway, parking lot or alleyway, the available 180-degree camera

    with lens washer reveals objects in your periphery.

    An easier way to gear-up.

    The available hands-free liftgate makes it easier than ever to load and unload gear into your Explorer. With the key fob in your pocket, simply open or close the liftgate with a kick of your foot within the range of the rear bumper’s sensors.

    An end to parking anxiety.

    Available enhanced active park assist lets Explorer help you with

    perpendicular parking too. Using the vehicle’s 12 ultrasonic sensors,

    Explorer will scan for suitable parking spaces, and assist in backing

    the vehicle into the spot. All you have to do is shift, accelerate and

    brake, and Explorer will take care of the steering.

    Faster is better.

    Dual 2nd-Row Smart-Charging USB Ports charge up to twice as fast as standard USB ports. Up to

    2.5 amps - two in front, two in the rear.

    Refinements

    Explorer has guts and brawn — and a soft side as well.

    The benefits of being independent.

    Explorer’s independent rear suspension helps give you a smooth ride and better control.

    Personalize your climate.

    Available dual-zone electronic automatic temperature control ensures you and your front

    passenger will be in your individualized comfort zones. Remote climate control is available.

    Relaxed, refreshed and ready.

    Sometimes an epic day can be as simple as a nice, relaxing drive. Something made easier with

    cooled, multicontour massaging seats, available in the Explorer Limited. The Active Motion®

    system helps reduce muscle fatigue in your legs and lower back by using a subtle, rolling-pattern

    lumbar massage.

    The power at your fingertip.

    At the touch of a button, the available PowerFold® third-row seat folds flat to provide more cargo room and a level load floor.

    Push another button to remotely open the cargo hatch.

    Take the wheel, take control.

    A leather-wrapped steering wheel contains ergonomically arranged controls for audio, cruise

    control and all MyFord Touch® functions.

    Looks that get the looks.

    From any angle, Explorer impresses. Updated styling cues include new automatic LED low-beam

    headlamps and available dramatic signature lighting.

    Two views are better than one.

    The available dual-panel moonroof lets you and your passengers see more of your daily Explorer

    adventure.

    Drive with confidence

    Wherever you go, whatever you do, Explorer has your back. And that’s a good feeling.

    A better belt.

    The world’s first automotive production inflatable rear outboard (2nd row) safety belts are available in most Explorer models. The inflated safety belt helps distribute crash-force energy across more of the occupant's torso than a traditional safety belt, which helps reduce the risk of injury while providing support to the head and neck. These belts are compatible with child-safety seats.

    ​Stay in control…

    Standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ (RSCTM) helps you maintain control whenever it detects wheel slip, 
    understeer, oversteer or roll motion. It also helps maintain control on adverse road conditions such gravel or rain.

    ...even on the curves.

    Curve Control can slow Explorer by as much as 16 kph in about one second when it senses you’re going too fast for a particular curve. It uses both throttle reduction and four-wheel braking and is active at all times, functioning on dry and wet pavement. It is standard in all Explorer models. 12

    Safety for your children.

    The LATCH (Lower Anchors and Tethers for Children) system in Explorer makes securing a child seat easy and can help keep your child safe in case of an accident. It is standard on all Explorer models.

    Even better braking.

    The Anti-Lock Brake System in Explorer has been made even better with the addition of standard Electronic Brakeforce Distribution (EBD) and Emergency Brake Assist (EBA). EBD balances braking force between front and rear, as needed, for more effective braking. EBA interprets a driver’s braking behavior and automatically initiates full braking faster than a driver ever could. Two more examples of Ford going further for you.

    A canopy of protection.

    The standard Safety Canopy® System combines side-curtain airbags and a rollover sensor to help provide head and chest protection for outboard 1st-, 2nd- and 3rd-row passengers in certain side-impact and rollover accidents. Unlike traditional airbags, the safety canopy remains inflated for up to several seconds to reduce the risk of occupant ejection. Another important feature is roll-fold technology: If an occupant’s head is resting against a window, the airbag is designed to slide between the glass and the occupant as it inflates. 34
