Ford Explorer Performance and Capability

You can never go wrong with a Ford engine, and this is proved with the variety of engine choices you get in the new Ford Explorer.

It will come standard in the base, XLT, and Limited trims here at Colonial Ford.

The next engine offered is a hybrid, a 3.3-liter V6 partnered with an electric motor and capable of 318 horsepower and 322 pound-feet of torque. This hybrid powertrain is not only capable; it is also fuel-efficient. Its efficiency is rated at 27/29 mpg when paired with a 10-speed automatic gearbox and RWD configuration around New Milford.

Interior and Technology Features

The interior of the new Explorer is just as impressive as its capabilities. With such a powerful car, you need an excellent ride to match it. That is what this new Ford offers. The occupancy of the Explorer is seven, with a three-person bench in the second row. However, you can also opt for a pair of captain's chairs, which reduces the occupancy to six.

The second row is adjustable and can slide forward to increase the third-row legroom or storage capacity for your journeys in Brookfield. The Explorer's cargo capacity is 18.2 cubic feet with the third row upright, and 87.8 cubic feet with the second and third rows collapsed.

The Explorer's interior offers high-quality materials, especially in the Platinum trim, where almost every surface is covered by leather.
