The commanding presence of the 2022 Ford Explorer can’t be ignored. No wonder auto shoppers around Geneva, Canandaigua, and Rochester, NY, are interested in this SUV. Not only is this rugged beauty a sight to behold, it has everything the modern adventurer needs to be comfortable on the road.
You can learn more about the features, the capabilities, and the specs of this model by reading the review below, prepared by the team at Friendly Ford.
As a midsize SUV, the Ford Explorer provides adventurous drivers with the right amount of power and strength to get them to their destinations and maximize their fun once they’re there.
As a standard feature, this model comes with a 2.3L EcoBoost® I4 engine that cranks out 300 horsepower and has the ability to tow up to 5,300 pounds when properly equipped.
To achieve the maximum towing capacity, 5,600 pounds, you can opt for the available 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine. Even the 3.3L hybrid powertrain provides you with impressive power at 318 horsepower and a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.
Your Ford Explorer can also be tuned for the road rather than the long haul, with off-road-focused engineering and features. For instance, the available Intelligent 4WD (4-wheel drive) drivetrain optimizes traction and delivers the precise amount you need in specific road situations.
The 2022 Explorer is built to provide the best, while expecting the worst. That’s why you’ll find so many helpful technologies within this SUV.
To keep you and your passengers safe and secure, the Ford Co-Pilot360™ is equipped as a standard system and includes the following features:
- BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert
- Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking
- Auto High-Beam Headlamps
- Lane-Keeping System
- Rear View Camera
To improve your safety as well your vehicle’s stability on all roads, you can equip it with the available Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™. The seven modes of the Terrain Management System™ help you traverse everything from deep snow and sand to trails and slippery roads. There’s even a mode dedicated to towing.
Prepared for Changing Needs
The Ford Explorer isn’t only prepared for terrain changes—its intuitive and versatile cabin is easy to reconfigure on the fly.
For starters, you have three rows to work with, giving you tons of flexibility. In the third row, you have a 50/50 split-folding bench seat. For the second row, though, you’ll have available captain’s chairs. However, you can opt for the available E-Z Entry second row seats instead.
With all of these configuration options, you’ll have endless possibilities for fitting everything you want to bring into the 87.8-cubic feet of cargo space.
Even with all of the seats full, everyone will feel like they have plenty of room, with dimensions like these:
- Headroom (front/second/rear): 40.7 inches/40.5 inches/38.9 inches
- Legroom (front/second/rear): 43 inches/39 inches/32.2 inches
