360-Degree Camera

The available 360-Degree Camera with split-view display uses four cameras (one in the grille, liftgate, and under each side view mirror), enabling you to see all sides of the vehicle on the center screen. It's advantageous when maneuvering in tight spaces or on trails.

Pack It Up

Explorer delivers when you need configurable cargo space. With the second-and third-row seats in the upright position, you have maximum seating plus enough cargo space to haul the essentials. If you need more room, the Explorer provides up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first-row seat.


Seating for up to Seven

Available third-row PowerFold® third-row seats make it easy to accommodate passengers and cargo. With the seats up, the Ford Explorer can carry seven passengers. Or, fold them down and make room for cargo.

Great Performance With the Looks to Match

The first thing you'll notice about the 2022 Explorer SUV is its dynamic design, including adaptive LED headlamps and a unique muscular-looking grille. The interior is also crafted with an array of defining attributes. Available Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces, ambient lighting, a precision-engineered center console, and a rotary gear shift dial set you up for comfort.


Active Park Assist 2.0

Available Active Park Assist 2.0 makes it easy to nail an impressive park, time after time - even in tight parallel or perpendicular spots. With the push of a button, this feature will detect an appropriate parking space and tell you when to stop and put the car in neutral. Once you're there, all you have to do is hold the Active Park Assist button for the duration of the park, and the system does the rest.

A Cabin as Advanced as You Are

The 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line gives you the tools for seamless adventures. With the help of innovative technology, you can sit back and relax, staying connected with features such as the available SYNC 3 and an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot. The added benefit of an available wireless charging pad* gives you a reason to keep your phone on standby while you enjoy some time away in your personal sanctuary.

What powers the Ford Explorer?

With the Ford Explorer, you get a few engine options to choose from, and each one is powerful. Most trims will come standard with a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder that pumps out a spectacular 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. Higher trim levels will get you a little more power, as on the ST-Line trim and above, you get a turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that pumps out 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. Meanwhile, the Limited gives you the option of a highly innovative V6 hybrid engine that gets you 318 horsepower when combined with the electric engine. All of these engines combine nicely with a ten-speed automatic transmission, and while rear-wheel-drive comes standard, all-wheel-drive is available!

What are some available features for the Explorer?

There are eight unique trims available for the Ford Explorer, and each one is piled with some terrific features.
