Do you want comfort? Convenience? Style? If so, then look no further than the beautiful Ford Explorer. A marvel to both look at and operate, the Explorer meets all the demands of your busy lifestyle, making both your commute to work and family or friend-filled adventures comfortable, convenient, and easy. If you’re ready to learn more, keep reading! This blog will explore all the top features the Ford Explorer has to offer Southern California drivers.

Outstanding Performance While Sightseeing Across California

From Rodeo Drive to Baldwin Ave. in El Monte, you’ll be able to enjoy outstanding performance wherever the road ahead takes you. Enabling this phenomenal performance are the two engine options. First up is the 2.3L EcoBoost I-4 engine, which delivers 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque for easy ride and handling. Then, there’s the powerful 3.0L EcoBoost V6 engine, which delivers 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. A member of our Southern California Ford Dealers team can help you determine which Explorer model and engine type is right for you! In addition to these engines, enjoy the SelectShift Capability with paddle shifters, 10-speed automatic transmission, and seven available drive modes to tackle any type of terrain and road surface. These drive modes include Slippery, Tow/Haul, Normal, Trail, Sport, and Eco. And speaking of towing and hauling, did we mention that the Explorer can tow up to 5,000 pounds with ease? So go ahead, haul a mini camper along on an evening spent stargazing at Joshua Tree National Park!

Innovation That Sparked Creative Interior Technology
On the inside of the Explorer, you’ll be treated to an oasis that transforms your ride into the most relaxing experience (even in the face of I-405 traffic). The most creative feature you’ll be able to enjoy right off the bat is Ford BlueCruise Hands-Free Highway Driving. Covering 97% of controlled highways in the United States, hands-free highway driving is designed to reduce stress on the road. No wonder BlueCruise has been rated as one of the top Active Driving Assistance Systems by Consumer Reports for two years in a row! Furthering your tranquil driving experience is the Ford Digital Experience system, which includes Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, and the ability to access apps through both Amazon and Google. You can even use voice commands with Alexa! The 5G LTE in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot can power up your device as well as nine others, and can still catch a signal up to 50 feet outside your vehicle.

Smart Driver-Assist Technology for Safer Travels Ahead When driving down the busy freeway or somewhere unfamiliar, who wouldn’t want a second set of eyes keeping watch on the road ahead? Well, that’s exactly what the Explorer’s Driver Assist Technology offers! This unique system, available through Ford-CoPilot360, includes a dynamic set of safety features:

    • Lane-Keeping System
    • Hill Descent Control
    • Rear View Camera
    • Adaptive Cruise Control
    • Evasive Steering Assist
    • Automatic High-Beam Headlamps
    • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
    • Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert
    • Blind Spot Information System with Trailer Coverage
    • Pro Trailer Backup Assist
These systems can give you greater confidence on the road ahead, whether it’s on a simple run to the grocery store or on a road trip to see the country’s natural wonders in Southern California and beyond.

Intricate Design for the Modern Traveler

The Explorer has been redesigned for the modern driver, featuring an available B&O Sound Stage acoustic sound bar, Active X and Miko-brand seating materials, PowerFold Third-Row seating, and a 13.2” touchscreen that comes standard. In addition to all this and the ability to comfortably seat up to seven passengers, you’ll also have anywhere between 16.3 - 85.3 cubic feet worth of space to haul anything you need! Get even more features, such as ambient lighting, rain-sensing windshield wipers, wireless charging pad, and heated seats with the ST-Line Premium Package!
