2023 Ford Explorer | Paradise Ford | Cocoa, FL

With its bold styling, impressive capabilities, and high-tech conveniences, the 2023 Ford Explorer is ideal for both outdoor adventurers and families on the go. Here's a look at a few of the impressive features that have made the Explorer America's bestselling SUV of all-time.  

The 2023 Ford Explorer is available at eight trim levels: Base, XLT, ST-Line, Timberline, Limited, ST, King Ranch®, and Platinum.

Power your adventures

Power your 2023 Ford Explorer with three capable engine choices. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost® inline-four engine provides power for the Base, XLT, ST-Line, Timberline®, and Limited trims. With this dynamo under the hood, you'll be enjoying a ride with 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. It even offers 5,300 pounds of max towing capacity when properly, so you'll have plenty of power for towing a boat, some jet skis, or a small camper.

Step up to the ST trim level for even more muscle. Designed for a sporty ride and maximum performance, the ST features standard rear-wheel drive. Its 3.0-liter EcoBoost® engine pairs with a 10-speed automatic transmission. Together, this dynamic duo provides a smooth, sporty ride with 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. You can also enjoy this thrilling powertrain on the King Ranch®. When properly equipped, this engine will allow you to tow up to 5,600 pounds.

The Explorer is also available with an efficient yet powerful 3.3-liter full hybrid V6. This engine offers up an impressive 318 total system horsepower and allows you to tow up to 5,000 pounds with the proper equipment. And all that in addition to better fuel economy and range.

If your Explorer features 2WD or Intelligent 4WD, you can enjoy a sure-footed ride with the Terrain Management System™. It can help you conquer any terrain with its seven selectable drive mode. Choose Normal for everyday commuting, Sport for a spirited ride, Trail for off-road adventures, Slippery for better traction during the rainy season, and Eco mode to maximize your efficiency. Use the Tow/Haul setting for more confident trailering, or Deep Snow/Sand mode for fun on the beach.

Good looks and impressive capabilities

The Explorer backs up its rugged good looks with plenty of capabilities. If you love to explore the outdoors, the Timberline model is the right choice for you. It's designed to enable your adventurous spirit with its higher ground clearance, Torsen® limited-slip differential, and revised design to improve your overlanding experience. Its underbody is armored with steel skid plates, designed to protect the gas tank and other vital components from damage. And thanks to its Bridgestone Dueler all-terrain tires and custom suspension system, you can enjoy a smooth ride even when you're roughing it out on the trail.

If sporty styling is more to your taste, consider the ST-Line or ST trim level. These models offer performance-inspired accents like 20-inch machined aluminum wheels, fascia-integrated dual exhaust tips, blacked-out headlamps, and a blacked-out grille. And no matter which Explorer trim level you choose, you can outfit your SUV with a wide variety of wheel designs and a spectrum of eight bold exterior colors.


Comfort and technology

Whether you've got a growing family or you want enough space to keep all of your camping gear, the 2023 Explorer has you covered. Depending on the cabin configuration that you choose, it offers seven or eight seats. Behind the third-row seats, it offers 18.2 cubic feet of cargo volume - but it's easy to fold down the rear seats to open up all 87.8 cubic feet of storage room. And in addition to all that space, you and your passengers are sure to enjoy available luxuries like a twin-panel moonroof. Heated front seats, a heated steering wheel, and heated second-row seats.

No matter if you're on the highway or at a remote campground, the Explorer helps you stay connected with high-tech conveniences like SYNC® 3 Technology and FordPass® Connect®. Access your apps and contacts via smartphone connectivity and keep your phone going strong with the available wireless charging pad.


Safety on the go

Safety is a priority for every driver - that's why the Explorer comes equipped with Ford Co-Pilot360. This advanced safety suite protects what matters most with tools like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and the Lane-Keeping System.
