The 2017 Ford Explorer continues its streak as the #1 selling SUV for the 27th year in a row based on cumulative OEM reported U.S. sales for all SUVs. Due to the vehicle's success, it is not a surprise that Ford was named the most trusted SUV automotive brand in a Reader’s Digest survey.


The 2017 Explorer was built with consideration for the busy life of the modern driver with seating for seven passengers and interior space for kids, camping gear, sports equipment, and more. In addition, the standard roof rack can be used for carrying bulkier items like bicycles, canoes, or skis, so nothing stands in the way of adventure.


Comfort was kept in mind for the 2017 Ford Explorer, with a standard heated steering wheel as well as heated and cooled front-row seats that come standard on Limited and Platinum models.


For added comfort, multi-contour front seats with Active Motion and second-row inflatable outboard safety belts are also available. Other features include the 10-way power driver’s seat with power lumbar and the leather-wrapped steering wheel which both come standard on the XLT.

The interior lives up to the name, Platinum, with a dual-panel moonroof, 500-watt Sony Audio System and leather-wrapped heated wood steering wheel which all come standard on the 2017 model. Luxurious Nirvana leather with perforated and quilted seats are available in the colors Ceramic and Ebony.


The exterior of the vehicle commands attention with unique 20-inch aluminum wheels and grille team with satin-chrome exterior accents. Drivers can now enjoy their pick of three new colors on the 2017 model, including Canyon Ridge, Smoked Quartz Tinted Clearcoat, and White Gold.


Durable and long-lasting LED signature lighting, which is 60% energy efficient than filament-based lighting, is available on the new model. In addition, fog lamps give driver’s the extra lighting they need to navigate through all sorts of weather, on road and off.


Three powerful engines are offered for the 2017 Explorer which include: 2.3L EcoBoost, 3.5L EcoBoost, and the standard Standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 Engine.
