2019 Explorer: A Trio of Engines

Your SUV is only as good as its engine, but the Explorer brings three highly capable dynamos to the table. Let's pick apart their specs in detail:

  • 3.5L V6: 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque
  • 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-Cylinder: 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6: 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque

While the base and midrange engines are ideal for daily driving, the range-topping 3.5L EcoBoost® is great for accelerating up to highway speeds-or getting you going from a stop.

If your journey takes you onto more rugged terrain, you'll appreciate the available four-wheel drive (4WD) system, which includes the Terrain Management System™, too. You can shift between four drive modes to match the terrain, whether it's mud, sand, grass, or gravel.  

Eye-Catching Exterior Features

The Ford Explorer goes for a fresher, cleaner look than ever before. Its high-class styling could be described as Land Rover-esque, with the model name sleekly imposed over the grille, but it boasts a certain rugged style you've come to expect from Ford as well.

The dynamic grille gives this SUV an imposing presence, as do the wide, bold, and sharp LED headlamps with automatic high beams. They'll shine much brighter and longer, with more efficiency than traditional halogen bulbs.

The quad-tip exhaust on the Explorer Sport helps this trim level stand out, with more sophistication and style. Plus, with nine different wheel styles to choose from, you can customize the Explorer to match your own snazzy style.

Cabin Comfort: Interior Features

When it comes to people and cargo, the 2019 Explorer has room for it all. With impressive headroom and legroom that carves out space in each row for the average adult, you'll find this SUV the perfect place to stay limber on long drives. Here are the cabin specs in detail:


First Row

Second Row

Third Row

Headroom (inches)




Legroom (inches)




Cargo Behind (cubic feet)





The Explorer can seat up to seven people in its standard configuration. If you want to give the second-row passengers more room to spread out, you can opt for the second-row captain's chairs (reducing seating capacity to six).

The PowerFold® third-row seats make it easy to access all that available cargo space: Raise or lower them with the push of a button!
