Vehicle Summary

The 2017 Ford Explorer is well-loved for its modern three-row design, utility, and adaptability. Whether you are carpooling kids or loading up for a last-minute road trip, this SUV has your back.

2017 Ford Explorer Trim Configurations

The 2017 Explorer is available for sale in five well-equipped trims, offering a solid mix of comfort and convenience features, as well as powertrain options.

Base

The 2017 Explorer comes standard with a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 (290 hp and 255 lb.-ft. of torque) that's paired to a six-speed automatic transmission with either front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

• Rearview camera with backup-assist grid lines and a washer

• Cloth-trimmed seats

• Eight-way power driver seat with manual lumbar support

XLT

• 18-inch five-spoke painted aluminum wheels (AWD models)

• Reverse sensing system

• 10-way power driver seat with power lumbar support

• Intelligent Access with push-button start

• Black leather-wrapped steering wheel

Limited

The Limited comes standard with a turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost® inline-four (280 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque) that's mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with front-wheel or all-wheel drive.

• PowerFold® third-row seat

• Leather-trimmed seats with red accent stitching and perforated inserts

Platinum

The list-topping Platinum trim keeps the Sport's turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost® V6 (365 hp and 360 lb.-ft. of torque) and all-wheel drive, but forgoes the sport-tuned suspension in favor of premium comfort and convenience features:

• 20-inch bright-machined aluminum wheels with tarnished dark-painted pockets

Reviews for 2017 Ford Explorer

Overall Rating

4.7 out of 5 (24 reviews)

Wonder car with great features!

Explorer is roomy enough for traveling with let's and suit case and drive smoothly. So far the only con is the xlt doe not have inside night lighting but it is not a deal breaker. Handles well in icy conditions and gets good gas mileage for the type of suv. Wonderful car to grow into.

Pros

  • Interior Space:
  • Cabin Noise:
  • Technology and Entertainment:

- Chelsie Luna, 2017 Ford Explorer

Exactly Right for Me

Great road vehicle, excellent gas mileage, pulls my boat better than my pickup did, comfortable on long drives, and I love the rear view camera, when backing into a parking place and especially when putting the hitch ball directly under the trailer hitch. What a time saver that is!

Pros

  • Fuel Economy: When I got it the average MPG was 17.2, but now after front end alignment and new tires provided by Carmax (!) it gets 21.5 and is still going upl
  • Ride and Handling: I take long trips, the last was 1986 miles. Therefore comfort in the drivers seat and hardly any road noise matters, and this vehicle does that well.
  • Power: This vehicle has excellent power and acceleration when I need it.

- Pete Bromley, 2017 Ford Explorer

Explorer Sport is the ultimate daddy family car

- Spacious seating for 7 (or 6 if you get captain seats in the 2nd row). - Excellent acceleration in the Sport trim (twin turbo V6), among the best in class. - Optional SYNC 3 with both Apple Carplay and Android Auto. - Blend of aggressive yet conservative styling.

Pros

  • Power: The Sport and Platinum trims come equipped with a Standard Twin Turbo 3.5L V6 engine, with 365HP and 350lb/ft of torque. Sub 6 second 0-60mph acceleration means most other cars on the road are practically standing still when you pass or merge.
  • Interior Space: Great for my family of 4 and allows me to take my in-laws with room to spare. Fold down the 3rd row and 2nd rows and it basically becomes a truck with a cabin.
  • Technology and Entertainment: The Sport trim is equipped with SYNC 3 standard (Apple Carplay and Android Auto), powered tailgate (with foot sensor), powered 3rd row folding seats, and remote start/stop FOB.

Cons

  • Safety: This vehicle received "Marginal" and "Poor" ratings from from the IIHS for "small front overlap" collision safety. This means if the Explorer is involved in a front-end collision where a quarter or so of the front is hit, it will crumble and put the driver and front passengers at considerable risk of injury.
  • Seat Comfort: The 2nd row seat comfort is rather poor due to the position of the head rest being too far back. There's no tilt, only height adjustment, which means 2nd row passengers are unlikely to ever use the headrest unless like like sitting with their jaw tucked into their neck.
  • Fuel Economy: The car is fun and the twin turbo V6 doesn't do fuel efficiency any favors: we average 16.5 MPG, which is roughly 260 miles per tank.

- Jon G, 2017 Ford Explorer
