Interior

If you're in the market for a new vehicle, why not bring the entire family to test drive the 2022 Ford Explorer at Veterans Ford in Tampa, FL?

  • Together, you can experience the spacious interior that seats up to seven on three spacious rows. When you need more room for school sports gear or garage sale finds, you can drop down the rear seatbacks to increase cargo room from 18.2 to 87.8 cu. ft. Push a button and the PowerFold® third row folds flat to maximize carrying capacity.

  • Cloth is the standard upholstery. However, available leather can cover the heated seats, heated steering wheel, and center console.

  • Tri-Zone Electronic Automatic Temperature Control lets you, your front passenger, and those in the rear create separate temperatures that automatically adjust for weather changes. Second-row passengers can adjust their own climate settings with the control knobs located at the back of the center console.

  • When you want to increase the light and air in the cabin, open the available Twin-panel Moonroof.

Safety

When you have the most important people in the world as passengers, you can drive with the confidence of knowing that they’re protected by the following driver assists of the 2022 Ford Explorer.

  • Pre-collision Assist tells you if you’re about to hit a person or vehicle in your path. If you don’t do anything corrective, Automatic Emergency Braking can stop automatically to prevent an accident.

  • The Blind Spot Information System informs you about vehicles entering your blind zone to make lane changes safer.

  • Cross-Traffic Alert warns you about cars crossing your reverse path when you back out of a parking spot.

  • The Rear View Camera shows what’s behind you when you back up.

  • The Lane-Keeping System alerts you if your car wanders out of its lane without your engaging a turn signal. If you do that too many times, it can also tell you that it’s time to take a break.

  • Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go recognizes how fast you have to go because its Speed Sign Recognition can read signs. It can adjust your speed automatically to keep you at a safe distance away from the next car. The Lane Centering feature helps keep your SUV within the lines by reading highway markings.

  • Push a button and the available Active Park Assist 2.0 parks the SUV in a parallel or perpendicular spot. It handles steering, gear shifts, and braking.

  • Auto High-Beam headlamps switch from high beams to low when they detect the approach of other vehicles at night.

Technology

The 2022 Ford Explorer makes your drives convenient and more comfortable with a host of high-tech features.

  • The multi-color touchscreen on the dashboard lets you control the SYNC® with a Voice-Activated Navigation System. It delivers the most efficient turn-by-turn directions to your destination on a dynamic map.

  • Through FordPass Connect™, you and your passengers can browse the Internet with up to 10 devices from up to 50 feet outside your vehicle.

  • The Ford+Alexa App lets you use your voice to get traffic information, shop with Amazon Prime, and control supported smart-home devices.

  • When you need to power up your compatible device, avoid cables and ports by laying it on the wireless charging station.

  • You can configure the look and function of the available 12.3-inch configurable instrument cluster behind the steering wheel.

  • Surround yourself in music from the 12 speakers of the B&O® Sound system by Bang & Olufsen®. Your entertainment can come from SiriusXM® Satellite Radio, which covers commercial-free music, exclusive talk radio, and comprehensive news.

Capability

Moving you ahead in the 2022 Ford Explorer is the 3.0-liter TecoBoost® engine that generates 400 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft. of torque while reaching a maximum speed of 143 MPH.

The fuel-saving rear-wheel drive is standard but Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive with the Terrain Management System™ improves traction on tough drives. You can dial such modes as Normal, Trail, Slippery, Sport, Tow/Haul, Deep Snow/Sand, and Eco to define your experience.

Hill Descent Control™ manages your speed on steep slopes. If you’re pulling a heavy low, Towing and Trailer Sway Control can brake selectively and manage engine power to prevent your trailer from swinging back and forth.
