Drive Smarter with Ford Ex­plorer

The 2015 Ford Ex­plorer has a sports-in­spired de­sign and rugged ca­pa­bil­ity, but what you may not ex­pect in this SUV is tech­nol­ogy that takes con­ve­nience to the next level. Fea­tures in­clude SYNC, Nav­i­ga­tion Sys­tem, In­flat­able sec­ond-row out­board safety belts, and more.

Ca­pa­bil­ity

Un­der the hood, the base 3.5-liter Eco­Boost® V6 en­gine pro­duces 290 horse­power and 255 pound-feet of torque, mak­ing it easy to merge onto high­ways or pass slower ve­hi­cles. The en­gine is mated to a six-speed au­to­matic trans­mis­sion that pro­vides a smooth, re­spon­sive ride. Choose be­tween stan­dard front-wheel drive and avail­able four-wheel drive, the lat­ter of which en­hances over­all per­for­mance. With front-wheel drive, the 2015 Ford Ex­plorer can be equipped with the avail­able tur­bocharged 2.0-liter four­cylin­der en­gine for greater fuel ef­fi­ciency. This en­gine still packs a pow­er­ful punch, with 240 horses and 270 pound­feet of torque.

When driv­ers have the In­tel­li­gent Ac­cess Key on them, touch the door han­dle to un­lock the driver’s door or all doors. Once in­side, just press the brake pedal and then the start but­ton, shift into gear, and drive off. 2015 Ford Ex­plorer driv­ers can also con­trol the class-ex­clu­sive Pow­erFold® third-row seats, hav­ing them fold flat for ad­di­tion cargo room at the touch of a but­ton. The avail­able power lift­gate can be opened or closed by press­ing a but­ton on the key fob, the in­stru­ment panel, or the bot­tom of the tail­gate. You can also pro­gram the height of the lift­gate if you fre­quently park in a space with a low ceil­ing.

The Ter­rain Man­age­ment Sys­tem lets you choose one of four ter­rain modes to fur­ther op­ti­mize per­for­mance in var­i­ous en­vi­ron­ments. The avail­abil­ity of Ac­tive Park As­sist steers the SUV into a par­al­lel park­ing space while the driver op­er­ates the trans­mis­sion and the ped­als. Ad­di­tion­ally, the Ex­plorer of­fers adap­tive cruise con­trol with for­ward-col­li­sion warn­ing and Brake Sup­port, a lane­keep­ing sys­tem, and a blind-spot in­for­ma­tion sys­tem with cross-traf­fic alert.

Safety

One of the most in­no­vated safety fea­tures is the world’s first au­to­mo­tive pro­duc­tion in­flat­able rear out­board safety belts. The in­flated safety belt helps dis­trib­ute crash­force en­ergy across more of the pas­sen­ger’s torso than a tra­di­tion safety belt, which helps re­duce the risk of in­jury while also pro­vid­ing sup­port to the head and neck. If a front or side im­pact were to oc­cur, the in­flat­able safety belts hold the pas­sen­ger in the safest seated po­si­tion, which re­duces in­jury. Th­ese safety belts are also com­pat­i­ble with child-safety seats. De­liv­er­ing big things in terms of safety, you will han­dle trou­ble­some road con­di­tions eas­ily with stan­dard fea­tures like trailer sway con­trol and sta­bil­ity and trac­tion con­trol. The sta­bil­ity con­trol sys­tem in­cludes Ford’s Curve Con­trol, which au­to­mat­i­cally de­cel­er­ates when it de­tects speed car­ried into a cor­ner. The avail­able rearview cam­era makes back­ing up a snap. Ad­vanced safety sys­tems - in­clud­ing the op­tional blind-spot warn­ing and lane-de­par­ture warn­ing sys­tems are de­signed to max­i­mize your vig­i­lance. With count­less tech­nol­ogy fea­tures at your fin­ger­tips, the 2015 Ford Ex­plorer makes your driv­ing ex­pe­ri­ence more con­ve­nient and en­joy­able.
