Space Inside the Ford Explorer

All the rear seats fold down, which will give you up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo volume to use.

Choosing the Trim Level You Want

To go along with all that space inside the Explorer, this SUV also offers various options when it comes to the design and features you'll have within its cabin. That is because it comes in five different trim levels, which include:

The base trim level comes with a list of features from the tri-zone electronic automatic temperature control system to the Rear View Camera. The ST trim comes with its own unique sporty design and added athleticism with a boost of power. You can also enjoy extreme luxury in the Ford Explorer as you sit on the Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces that are found inside the Platinum trim level.

Performance Specs

The Ford Explorer also has three different engines you can choose from. Depending on the exact type of performance you are after, one of these engines will offer the best option for you. A balance of power and efficiency is provided by its standard engine, while the available V6 engine gives the Explorer a maximum towing capacity of 5,600 pounds when properly equipped. There is even an available hybrid engine, which helps the Explorer get an EPA-estimated 23 city/26 highway MPG.
