2019 Explorer Performance

Performance is crucial in an SUV. What you'll find under the hood of the Explorer will get you where you need to go-and then some. The standard engine is a 3.5L V6 that boasts a solid 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. Paired with a 6-speed automatic transmission, you'll be able to accelerate and control your vehicle with ease.

A 2.3L EcoBoost® engine is also available, amping up the power you'll receive behind the wheel. Also melded to the 6-speed transmission, this powertrain gets you 280 horsepower and a whopping 310 lb-ft of torque.

Though quite powerful, the Ford Explorer gas mileage is impressive as well. Standardly, it comes in at an EPA-estimated 17 city/24 highway/20 combined MPG. Then, fuel efficiency increases even more with the addition of the available 2.3L engine to 19 city/27 highway/22 combined MPG. This means fewer trips to the gas station for you.

Ford Explorer Capability

Whether venturing off the beaten path, tackling some rough weather, or looking to tow, the Explorer has your back. What makes this all possible is the available Intelligent 4WD System with Terrain Management System. This technology adjusts automatically to accommodate for different driving conditions and includes selectable modes for snow, gravel, sand, and grass.

Hauling is also a breeze with this SUV. In fact, the Ford Explorer towing capacity reaches up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped and includes technology focused on trailering. With standard Trailer Sway Control, your vehicle will brake and adjust engine power when needed to ensure your load is safe and controlled.

Cargo Space in the Explorer

Ready to load up your vehicle just the way you want to? The interior of the 2019 Explorer is incredibly configurable thanks to PowerFold® third-row seating. When all the rows are upright, you can fit up to seven passengers and still utilize 21 cubic feet of cargo space.

For more room in the rear, all you need to do is press a button and the third row automatically folds down. This transforms your cargo space into a generous 43.9 cubic feet. However, for the most area, fold down the second row as well. This leaves you with a large 81.7 cubic feet-ideal for larger items.
