Explorer Performance

The new Explorer uses a similar engine to the Ranger pickup as its base, the turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder. The same engine puts out more power on the Explorer, putting out 300 horsepower and making 310 pound-feet of torque, while mated to a smooth 10-speed automatic transmission. Additional powertrain options include a twin-turbo 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6 that delivers 365 horsepower in the Platinum trim or the high-end 400 horsepower in the new ST, the performance-oriented model in the lineup.

Explorer Hybrid

The all-new Explorer Hybrid features a 3.3-liter V6 and an electric motor, the combination of which delivers 318 horsepower. Additional offerings include leather-trimmed interior, a high-end sound system, and wireless device charging.

Explorer Room

The wheelbase of the new Explorer has been stretched by 6.3 inches. The SUV feels quite roomier on the inside, while the cargo area remains the same as the previous model. The standard Explorer is a three-row, seven-passengers configuration with bench seats. Other new Explorer models are six-seaters with captain’s chairs in the second row.
