    A vehicle is more than just an essential piece of equipment or a tool needed to get you from point A to point B. It is a retreat after a long day of work, a getaway place from the stresses of the world outside; it is a home away from home in a manner of speaking. We spend a lot of time in our vehicles. Therefore, a comfortable interior with ample room for all passengers and any gear you need is essential so that your journey on the road remains an enjoyable experience for everyone, for any length of time. The 2022 Ford Explorer offers you and your family all the interior essentials needed for any trip.

    Seating for a Crowd

    When searching for a large SUV, you want to find one with suitable seating, but you also want to find one sized for the comfort of all its passengers. The 2022 Ford Explorer offers 152.7 cubic feet of passenger volume for its maximum of 7 passengers, which provides spacious and adaptable seating for all. The driver and front passenger can enjoy 43 inches of legroom to stretch out with, while the second-row passengers boast 39 inches and the third-row passengers 32.2 inches. For you and your lucky front passenger, you can receive an even more comfortable and refreshing experience in your Explorer with the addition of Multicontour seats with Active Motion, providing you with cushioned seating that offers customizable massages for a refreshing driving experience for any length trip.

    For those needing to get into or out of the third row, the E-Z Entry second-row seating gives access to the rear seat with a pull of a lever, even with a car seat in place. Believe it or not, you can gain easier access with the available second and third-row PowerFold seatbacks, effortlessly giving your rear passengers access to the third row or maximizing cargo space with the usefulness of the 50/50 fold-flat rear seats. Plus, with the ability to use the second-row seats as captain’s chairs or as 35/30/35 bench seats, you can find a way to store your essential belongings needed for any adventure.

    Storage Solutions for Any Adventure

    No matter what your commutes entail, interior storage solutions allow you to bring along the essentials you may need for the road ahead and for when you reach your destination. With the 2022 Ford Explorer, you can expect an impressive cargo volume that may be hard to fill. The adaptable seating allows you to make room for it all and then some, whether you need the room for vacation or camping gear or to keep a roadside safety emergency kit with blankets, a change of clothing, basics tools, or even just snacks, drinks, and toys to keep your kids happy and your ride a little less stressful. There is still plenty of room for your belongings, even at full passenger capacity, with 18.2 cubic feet of space behind the third row. When you don’t need to maximize the seating of your Explorer, you can use the rear seats for your storage needs with 47.9 cubic feet behind the second row and up to 87.8 cubic feet behind the front seats for those well-deserved and much-needed couple getaways without the kids.

    With an interior capable of providing ample passenger and cargo storage solutions, the 2022 Ford Escape does not disappoint. However, we expect a spacious and universal interior with a full-size family vehicle. What we may not expect is versatility in the capabilities of a family-oriented model. Any SUV should provide its drivers with a versatile performance on the road no matter how far you are traveling or what roads you plan to take to reach your destination or conquer an adventure. The Explorer is no exception and provides exceptional performance with any task.

    Exploring Powertrain Options

    Although you may know what SUVs are capable of, some outpower the rest. The 2022 Ford Explorer is one offering impeccable performance across the board, from fuel efficiency to towing capacity and off-road abilities. And with the variety of powertrain options available to choose from, you can maximize the Explorer’s capabilities based on your needs.

    The Explorer comes standard as a 10-speed automatic for smooth and efficient shifting and standard with a 2.3L EcoBoost Turbo I-4 engine capable of producing 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, allowing an EPA-estimated combined 24 MPG for the standard rear-wheel drive and an estimated combined 23 MPG for four-wheel drive. This engine also enables the Explorer to tow up to 5,300 pounds. The 3.0L EcoBoost Turbo V6 produces 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, allowing an EPA-estimated combined 21 MPG for rear-wheel drive and an estimated combined 20 MPG for four-wheel drive with the capability of towing up to 5,600 pounds.

    The Ford Explorer ST model with the 3.0L V6 engine can expect extra power with its 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque but can also expect to be slightly less fuel-efficient. If you are looking for the Explorer with the best fuel economy, the available hybrid model with the 3.3L Hybrid V6 is the way to go with an EPA-estimated combined 27 MPG with rear-wheel drive and an estimated combined 25 MPG with four-wheel drive. This engine still provides impressive power with its 318 horsepower and 322 pound-feet of torque, allowing your Explorer to tow up to 5,000 pounds while saving you on fuel costs.

    Intelligent 4WD for the Roads Less Traveled

    Although a remarkable performance on the streets is essential, a versatile SUV should provide you with an exceptional experience in any road condition or terrain. With the availability of an Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System for your Explorer, the roads and the adventures you can journey on are limitless. Any terrain on any adventure is made possible with the Terrain Management System, helping you find traction wherever you go. With the seven selectable drive modes of the Intelligent AWD, maximizing your Explorer’s ability to deliver traction based on the driving conditions through optimizing the powertrain and the braking systems has never been so easy. With a turn of the rotary shift dial in the center console, you can optimize performance whether your journey takes you on the pavement for your daily commutes or for a quick drag race against friends, on the trail, in sand or snow, in slippery conditions, or even just for towing.

  • Customization

    Being able to customize your vehicle to your comfort, pleasure, and lifestyle makes buying a new vehicle so enjoyable. You can take an already perfect model for your family and customize it beyond perfection based on your family’s needs and desires. Luckily, with the 2022 Ford Explorer, your customizable options are endless.

    Personalized to Perfection Through Color and Trim Choice

    There is no reason you shouldn’t be able to express yourself through your vehicle. Choosing the right color for your vehicle is one way you can share yourself with the world without exposing who you truly are. From the purity of Star White to the luxurious Agate Black and even the refreshing Forged Green to represent your love for the outdoors, with eight color options for the Ford Explorer, there’s one perfectly matched to your personality or at least one to match the disposition of which you are trying to portray.

    Beyond the color choice, customizing the Explorer to your personality, preferences, and lifestyle can be as simple as selecting the trim level or model for your specific needs. With your choice of eight different models, finding the right amount of style, comfort, technology, performance, and capability for you and your family should be simple. From the most affordable base model, maximizing the versatility of comfort and capability to fit any budget, to driving in first class with the luxurious Explorer Platinum, fully-loaded inside for full glamor. Or maybe your family lives on the wild side and spends more time exploring nature, taking all the roads less traveled and not maintained. If this is your family, the Timberline model would better suit you with a rugged design appealing to the eye and the terrain with steel front, rear, and underbody skid plates, all-terrain tires, and the 3.58 Torsen Limited-Slip Rear differential for the added protection and durability you will need while venturing off-road.

    If your family prefers the perfect blend of power and strength with the comfort and convenience of luxury, the Ford Explorer King Ranch may be just what you are looking for. This model comes wrapped in leather with heated seating and a B&O Sound System comprising not only 12 speakers throughout the cabin but a subwoofer to enhance your favorite music, glorifying your driving experiences even more. Although glamorous, the King Ranch packs some serious power with the 3.0L V6 engine to give your Explorer the maximum towing capacity so you can look and feel good, all while working your hardest.

    Maximizing Convenience and Capability By Accessorizing

    With each trim level comes added features for comfort, convenience, and capability. But when choosing the model just isn’t enough for your escapades on the open highway towards a new city or down the back roads into unknown territory, there are many accessories available for you to customize your 2022 Ford Explorer even more. From splash guards that keep your vehicle clean and protect it from unnecessary scratches and dings from rocks that get kicked up from the road to trailering accessories like wiring kits, trailer hitch ball mounts, and locking hitch pins to prevent theft, maximize the convenience and capability of your Explorer by accessorizing. You can even maximize the Ford Explorer’s versatility and potential for storage solutions with the available Outfitters Packages with either the Yakima Cargo MegaWarrior roof basket, the Yakima SkyBox roof box, or the Yakima Bike FrontLoader roof racks, all of which come with durable floor mats and a cargo protector for the area behind the third row.
