With cushioned and contoured seats, intuitively arranged controls, and numerous comfort and convenience amenities, the Explorer's upscale cabin is attractive and inviting. The standard configuration seats up to seven riders, with almost 20 cubic-feet to spare for cargo behind the third-row. If you don't need all seven seats, you can option second-row captain's chairs. This reduces seating to six, while enhancing passenger comfort and ease of access.

The 50/50-split third row folds down to more than double the cargo hold: up to 48 cubic-feet. If you've got an extra-large day of errands ahead of you, the E-Z Entry second row can also be folded to maximize carrying capacity, providing up to 88 cubic-feet of cargo space.

Performance and Capability

Though large, the Ford Explorer's performance isn't hindered by its extra size and weight. Under the hood, Explorer finds motivation in a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine. 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque allow the Explorer to get up to speed quickly and perform merging and highway passing maneuvers with confidence; while a 10-speed automatic transmission allows for smooth and precise gear changes. When properly equipped, Explorer can tow up to 5,600 pounds.

For even more vigor, the Platinum trim features a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that generates 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The racing-inspired ST trim is powered by a high-output version of the same engine, churning out 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.
