The Ford Explorer has been turning heads since 1990. Since that time, lots of things have changed. One thing you can count on is the innovation and adaptability of the Ford Explorer to bring you the comfortable interiors, innovative technologies, and safety features you’ve come to expect for decades.
With five models to choose from, the Southern California Ford Dealerships team is confident you’ll find a model meant for your specific needs. We encourage you to take this beautiful, family-friendly workhorse for a test drive and fall in love all over again.
Is there enough room in the Ford Explorer for a growing family?
With seating for seven and accommodations for all their most important cargo too, there is plenty of room to spare inside this vehicle built for the journey ahead. Whether you’re going across town or across the country, you’ll find comfortable seating options that make yours a worthwhile adventure.
The luxurious King Ranch features over 85 square feet of leather seating, including heated and ventilated front captain’s chairs with 10-way power that includes power lumbar and power recline. And we didn’t forget our second-row passengers. Power-folding and heated seats with armrests and an easily accessible tip-and-slide feature mean that the rear seat passengers have easy access in and out.
A 60/40 PowerFold third-row seat guarantees plenty of cargo room, plus power recline and power-folding head restraints. Who said sitting in the back seat was a bad thing? Not anymore!
Need some fresh air? Feeling like a dose of Vitamin D may be just what the doctor ordered? Then the Twin-Panel Moonroof is precisely what you need. The large roof windows allow plenty of opportunity for starry-night viewing and lots of available sunshine for even the backseat crew to enjoy.
Are there can’t-miss technologies in the Ford Explorer?
Ford added the latest and greatest technology to the Explorer. You’ll never miss a connection with the 10.1-inch LCD Portrait Touchscreen at your fingertips. Connect your smartphone for absolute convenience. Call friends, pull up favorite podcasts, or choose your navigation tools for the adventure that awaits.
SYNC 3 and in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot help keep you connected. The available wireless charging pad adds a level of luxury that cannot be denied. Never, ever worry about bringing extra chargers and cords again. Just rest your device on the charging pad and relax, knowing you’ll stay connected - if you want to be.
Ford teamed up with Alexa, Amazon’s cloud-based voice service, to bring you access to voice navigation, traffic information, and Amazon Prime shopping. You can control your at-home devices from your Explorer, too, like setting your home thermostat and turning on the lights.
What are some of the most innovative safety features in the Ford Explorer?
Your safety has always been Ford’s top priority. We are proud that our commitment garnered the 2021 Ford Explorer a 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+. Accolades don’t get much better than that!
Our Ford Co-Pilot360 Technologies empower you to take on the journey ahead. These safety features are reminiscent of “The Jetsons,” providing what feels like another set of eyes to help you keep watch. Most of these features are standard across all our models, but it’s important to ask a sales team representative which features are standard on the vehicle in which you’re most interested. Some of these features include:
Blind Spot Monitoring. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, our system notifies you by illuminating a small red light in the corresponding side-view mirror. It seems so simple, and yet it’s revolutionary.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. Sometimes traffic comes to an abrupt slowdown. If you’re not paying close attention, you may miss those brake lights ahead. This system detects the traffic speed ahead and warns you to slow down if necessary. If you don’t slow down quickly enough, emergency braking is activated to mitigate any damage.
Lane Keeping System. If you veer from your lane, we alert you to stay focused on the road ahead. If you veer from your lane multiple times, the system gently recommends that a coffee break may be an excellent next step.
These are only a few of the many safety features we have developed to keep you as safe as possible. Be sure to ask which ones apply to your vehicle and if there are any you can add.
