Generation Overview

The 2013 Ford Explorer comes in base, XLT, Limited and Sport trims. Even in its base form, the 2013 Ford Explorer comes well-equipped with cruise control, air conditioning, cloth seating, a power driver’s seat with six-way controls and a six-speaker audio system, among other features. Moving up to the XLT gives you access to Ford’s SYNC voice-activated connectivity system, along with upgraded cloth seats and a six-way power seat for the front passenger. The top-tier Limited trim features the MyFord Touch infotainment system, complete with an eight-inch touch screen display and two USB ports.

The 2013 Ford Explorer Sport shares most of the Limited’s features, but offers its own unique leather upholstery and other interior and exterior trim features. The Sport also adds distinctive 20-inch alloy wheels and a few performance-oriented tweaks, including bigger front brakes. For motivation, the Sport borrows the 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 found in the Taurus SHO, rated at 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque.

Motivation for the other 2013 Ford Explorer trims includes the standard 3.5L V6, not to be mistaken with the twin-turbo EcoBoost engine. This naturally-aspirated powerplant produces 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. The optional 2.0L EcoBoost inline-four (available on 2WD models) produces 20 fewer hp, but more than makes up for the deficit with an impressive 270 lb-ft of torque and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 23 mpg combined.2 

2Fuel economy figures are based on EPA estimates for when vehicle sold as new. Fuel economy may vary for reasons like driving conditions and vehicle history. Unless specified, figures are for vehicles equipped with an automatic transmission. See
