In times when your hands are full, you will appreciate the available hands-free, foot-activated liftgate that opens automatically to make life easier.

2017 Ford Explorer Interior Features

The interior of the 2017 Ford Explorer was designed with versatility in mind. This SUV comes standard with a 2nd row bench seat that splits 60/40 and folds flat and a 3rd row that splits 50/50 before folding. There are 21 cubic feet behind the third row or 81.7 cubes with both rear rows folded. The third row can be replaced with a PowerFold version that removes any possible hassle. In addition to heated front seats, you can also enjoy heated outboard second-row seats or heated bucket seats in the second row complete with Power-Assist Fold and a center console. For a more luxurious experience, consider a trim with 10-way power-adjustment for the driver, heated and cooled front seats, and a heated steering wheel.

Performance of the 2017 Ford Explorer

The 2017 Ford Explorer's standard powertrain is a 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 with 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet. The 3.5-liter EcoBoost powertrain is well worth consideration with its direct injection and turbocharger. It delivers the best-in-class V6 horsepower of 365 horses along with 350 pound-feet. If you don't need quite that much power, the 2.3-liter EcoBoost still has an impressive 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet. For those who want to tackle any terrain, configure your 2017 Explorer with Hill Descent Control and Intelligent 4WD with the Terrain Management System. Or, if you plan on towing, add the Class II Trailer Tow Package to your Ford. When configured correctly, this SUV can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
