When the open roads are calling your name, there’s one SUV that’s up for the job. A Ford Explorer is built to take you and your family on all those adventures you’ve been planning in the Flushing, Flint, or Swartz Creek, Michigan, area and beyond!
If you’re ready to get on the road, we’re ready to help! The LaFontaine Ford of Flushing team has put together this used Ford Explorer review to help you get started tracking down the ideal SUV for your future drives.
One of the benefits to the Ford Explorer is that it’s available with a few engines, each of which offers astounding levels of power for that kind of performance you’re looking for in an SUV such as this.
Across the board, this vehicle can offer exciting levels of power output. You’ll find anywhere from 290 horsepower with the standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine to a maximum 365 horsepower with the available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 engine. No matter which trim and configuration you choose to drive home, a used Explorer will be ideal for every adventure you have on the horizon.
When properly equipped, this vehicle can tow up to 5,000 pounds, perfect to haul a camper or a boat. And since the Explorer comes standard with a rear view camera, you’ll have an easy time lining up your trailer hitch. There’s even standard trailer sway control that will work to keep you and your cargo steady on those winding mountain roads.
So, as the name might suggest, the Ford Explorer is clearly great for the explorer in you, but what about your family?
With three rows of seating available, it only makes sense you’ll bring along your friends and family for the journey. That’s why this Ford SUV comes with such a range of exciting infotainment features.
The standard 6-speaker stereo system will provide top-quality audio that everyone from the front row to the rear can enjoy. There’s also the SYNC® infotainment system that has Voice Recognition Communications and an LCD screen in the center stack to handle all your music needs.
The real secret to enjoying a ride in the Ford Explorer, though, is safety and security. This SUV comes equipped with a comprehensive safety system that will blanket you and your passengers in the protection you need to feel completely at ease when on the road.
Standard features like the heated, power sideview mirrors and the Tire Pressure Monitoring System will give you the tools you need to drive safely. And AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™) will help your SUV remain firmly planted on the road.
Additionally, the standard Safety Canopy® System with rollover sensing technology includes seven airbags spaced throughout the cabin. Three-row side-curtain airbags will help protect everyone on board if the unexpected happens.
