The 2019 Ford Explorer has been built with the driver's next big adventure in mind. Offering three engine options to choose from - either a 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 or 2.3-liter EcoBoost for the base, XLT, and Limited trims and a 3.5-liter EcoBoost for the Sport and Platinum trims, the '19 Explorer presents good power and fuel efficiency as well as desirable standard safety and technology equipment. Also, with seating for seven passengers and space for weekend toys, the Explorer is great for both families and avid adventurers who require plenty of space.



Trims and Standard Equipment

There are five trim levels for the '19 Explorer: the Base, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum. The Base comes standard with a rear view camera, trailer sway control, cloth upholstery, a power-adjustable driver's seat, hill start assist, and a post-crash alert system. The XLT gets upgrades to the cloth upholstery and infotainment system, plus push-button start, a reverse sensing system, and heated seats and heated steering wheel. The Limited adds the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, perforated leather front seats that are heated and ventilated, voice-activated navigation, and further upgrades to the infotainment system (twelve-speaker Sony audio, WiFi hotspot, and a power outlet).

For the Sport trim, the available 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine combines the technologies of turbocharging and direct injection. It also generates best-in-class 365 hp plus 350 lb.-ft. of torque. The included Intelligent 4WD system also optimizes powertrain and braking systems, which allows the vehicle to deliver the right amount of traction to match various driving conditions. On the highest-end Platinum trim, premium features such as the unique Nirvana leather seating with micro-perforations and quilted inserts ensure the utmost driver comfort. The Platinum also comes standard with all of the available driver-assist technologies, including enhanced active park assist with pull out assist, perpendicular park assist, and flank guards.


All '19 Explorer trims come standard with at least a few components of the Ford Co-Pilot360 technology, which depending on the level may include auto high beams, a blind-spot monitor, adaptive cruise control with forward collision warning, and active park assist. Also standard are roll stability, traction control, and a post-crash alert system. Each trim except for the base also comes with the SecuriCode keyless entry keypad in as well as a security perimeter alarm. In addition, each trim includes electronic power assist steering and independent front and rear suspension systems, while the Sport trim offers unique sport-tuned independent front and rear suspension.


The base and XLT trims both offer the SYNC information/entertainment system with a 4.2-inch touchscreen, Bluetooth compatibility, and a six-speaker audio system. The XLE also has the option for a Premium Audio System which comes fully loaded with seven speakers. The Limited and Sport trims get an upgrade to a Sony system with 12 speakers. The Platinum trim comes standard with the premium sound system from Sony, which includes Clear Phase and Live Acoustics for the optimal audio experience. A Wi-Fi hotspot is standard on the Limited, Sport, and Platinum trims, although it is optional for the XLE.
