Preferred Power

Your Explorer has three engine systems available, giving you a custom ride to your needs. Go with the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine for 290 hp. It is truly unsurpassed in its class among standard V6 engines. Go with the 2.3L EcoBoost for an EPA-estimated rating of 28hwy mpg, which even the hybrid competition in its class can’t beat. Or go for the spirited 365hp 3.5L EcoBoost, standard on Sport and the all-new Platinum models. For those more outdoorsy type adventures, your Explorer allows you to tow up to 5,000lbs. when you equip it with the Class III Trailer Tow Package (standard on Sport and Platinum) and either its 3.5L Ti-VCT or 3.5L EcoBoost engine. You can also pair the new Class II Trailer Tow Package with the 2.3L EcoBoost for up to 3,000 lbs. of towing capability.

Techie’s Delight

Your Explorer gives you the power to command it with your voice. Voice-activated SYNC technology helps you keep your eyes on the road and hands on the wheel. Hands-free calling lets you make a call with a simple push of a button along with the sound of your voice. Voice-activated music commands let you say what music you want to hear and listen to it easily with voice-activated search or say “Bluetooth audio” to stream content from your phone. SYNC AppLink lets you control some of your favorite compatible mobile apps with your voice. Upgrade to SYNC with MyFord Touch and an LCD screen lets you easily read and control the things you want. Voice-activated navigation features voice-recognition technology that lets you say commands as conversational as talking to a friend. The system then helps guide you to your destination with audible turn-by-turn directions. Voice control climate lets you use your voice to adjust the climate, so you can stay comfortable without having to lift a finger. Take technology and convenience to the next level with the hands-free foot-activated liftgate. Just kick your foot under the rear bumper with your Intelligent Access key fob tucked in a pocket or purse. The liftgate detects the motion of your leg and the proximity of the fob, and then opens or closes on its own.

Where to begin?! My husband & I went to the mall for the labor day sale. We had no intentions of trading in because financially didn't think we would be able too. We met our sales associate Kristine Dunn & let me tell ya she was amazing! She answered any & all questions we had & never once made us feel rushed like other dealers have. Her & her team worked so hard for my husband & I to get the truck we wanted. They went above & beyond anything I could have imagined & for that my husband was able to drive off in a truck he wanted for awhile! Can't say thank you enough ray skillman ford & Hyundai. Y'all are simply amazing!
