What's New in the 2019 Ford Explorer?

Drivers have three substantial engine options for the 2019 Explorer: a 290-horsepower V6, 280-horsepower turbocharged EcoBoost 4-cylinder, and twin-turbocharged, 365-horsepower EcoBoost V6. These come paired with a six-speed automatic transmission, and are all up for whatever adventures may await.

Despite its large frame, the 2019 Explorer is astoundingly maneuverable and maintains a smooth ride. It shrugs off any bumps in the road, and the Sport trim offers a specialized suspension to contend with the most aggressive terrain.

In the cabin, the Explorer seats seven with sufficient room for adults across all rows. Car seats may be secured to the second-row outboard seats and third-row passenger-side seat. The various trims offer different interior options, with soft materials, leather, and wood accents available.

Interior features include USB ports and a display screen that responds to both button controls and voice commands. Available features include the SYNC 3 infotainment system with touchscreen, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto.

Safety factors heavily into the Explorer's design, and the SUV aced its crash tests. Available safety features across different trims include automatic high beams, forward collision warning, rain-sensing windshield wipers, lane departure warning, and automatic parking assist. A rearview camera comes standard, as does Ford's MyKey feature, which allows you to set volume and speed limits for secondary drivers.

History of the Explorer

In 1991, Ford decided to replace their massive Bronco II, and unveiled the Explorer as their giant leap in a new direction. The Explorer established itself over the following years as a versatile option equally fit for daily driving and weekend rambling. By 2011, it was due for an update, and Ford gave it a complete redesign. They replaced the old truck-style frame with a sturdy unibody frame, entering the Explorer into the SUV segment.

The timing for this move proved prescient, as driver demand for SUVs began to rise rapidly. The Explorer has performed well within this competitive class, holding its ground year after year. As Ford continues to develop and improve their SUV, the Explorer demonstrates renewed value with each new model. The SUV delivers some of the most plentiful cargo space in its class. With the third row folded, it provides 43.9 cubic feet of storage.
