Burly SUVs like the Explorer and the Highlander need to have a lot of power flowing through them to perform at their best. Thankfully for drivers of these amazing sets of wheels, you’ll get exactly that.
Let’s start by taking a look at the engines in the Toyota:
While that’s certainly a lot of power, the Ford has more to say. With three available engines, there is more room for customization:
As you can see, not only do you have more engine options with the Explorer, but you’ll also have access to more power.
Few feelings are better than rolling down the windows on a nice day while the breeze flows through your hair and your music is blaring through your speakers.
The Explorer and Highlander set themselves apart from the competition in this regard, as they both offer standard Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™ capabilities. Both SUVs can also interact with Amazon’s Alexa!
What’s really important, though, is having a premium audio experience. They both come standard with six speakers, but the Ford has available 12-speaker and 14-speaker B&O® Sound Systems by Bang & Olufsen®, whereas the Toyota offers an optional 11-speaker system from JBL®.
While you’re driving, danger can strike at any moment. However, the Ford and the Toyota give you the confidence that you can avoid an incident altogether with many amazing safety features and technologies.
Both sets of wheels come with similar features that include:
Parking is also a breeze in both the Ford and the Toyota, as they both offer available front and rear parking assist features with audio alerts that occur more frequently the closer you get to an object. However, the parking feature in the Ford, Active Park Assist 2.0, can locate a space for you—and, with the push of a button, it can park itself!
Unfortunately, the parking feature in the Toyota doesn’t park itself.
The Ford Explorer and Toyota Highlander are neck and neck, but Friendly Ford believes the Ford Explorer is the superior vehicle based on engine options, specs, infotainment, and safety features.
