What Makes the Explorer Special?

The Ford Explorer's first attention-grabbing element is its performance. The Explorer has two great engines to choose from that provide either 300 or 400 horsepower. Both are lively and powerful, and the handling is nimble. Ride quality and comfort are highlighted as well. The Explorer feels like a smaller vehicle, especially when quickly taking corners.

Brookfield drivers will also appreciate that the cargo space for the Explorer is substantial, including the option of folding down the back row for more space. Tasks like loading up kids' bikes or a Christmas tree will not be an issue, and the seating has enough legroom for comfort.

The Explorer's tech, safety, and infotainment offerings are rewarding, and the interface on the touchscreen is clear and simple. Everything in the cabin is well thought-out, such as the four sets of child car seat connector latches that are easy to use and access.

The Best Model for You

With eight trims and several options and packages, there are plenty of ways to configure the Ford Explorer. We strive to keep as many of them in stock as possible so that you can examine each one. Remember that the base engine comes with the bottom five trims, and the upgrade engine is included with the top three. All of them have optional all-wheel drive. The second trim, the XLT, is good value for most Monroe and Newtown customers. It has many standard features and packages for the sound system, seating upgrades, extra tech, and a few one-off options like adaptive cruise control. Of the rest, the Timberline trim is notable due to its special set of off-roading features, and the Limited trim is the most luxurious trim that still uses the 300-horsepower engine.
