June Was an Excellent Month for Ford, and 2017 Ford Explorer Gives Us a Glimpse of Why

Towing an approximately 22.7 percent increase in June sales on the previous year, Ford Explorer hauled into July showing a performance improvement for the month unequaled in 12 years. That included an 18-percent uptick in the northeastern SUV market alone, driven by top-of-the-line models like the agile Explorer Sport, exceptionally equipped Explorer Limited, and fully loaded Explorer Platinum. With the lineup of new Ford Explorer models here in Fredericksburg on display at Purvis Ford Lincoln Inc., we can surely see what people love about it.

It's all about the blend of off-road performance and mid-size SUV luxury, the order of the day in models like 2017 Ford Explorer Limited. Getting the engine roaring is as easy as the touch of a Remote Start button. A few strokes of the exterior SecuriCode™ pad and you're ready to step inside the SUV's expansive three-row, 151.5-cubic-foot cabin. It's here that a driving experience unrivaled begins.

Settle into perforated leather-trimmed first- and second-row seating, sit back, and enjoy the ride. You'll find the former climate-controlled, flanked by a separate dual-zone electronic automatic temperature system and a standard heated steering wheel to combat the onset of that Virginia road-trip chill. Rear auxiliary controls help keep second-row passengers comfortable for the duration. If it's just you and your beau, the second row and third-row PowerFold® 50/50 split-folding bench seating collapses to yield massive cargo capacity up to 81.7 cubic feet. Looking to haul even more? Explorer Limited lets you take along a trailerful up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped

But even showcasing the panache of optional intelligent four-wheel drive and a Terrain Management System to tack into Mother Nature's inclemency, the Explorer Limited design isn't just geared for the off-grid. It features quite a few accouterments of civilization. Standard SYNC® 3 infotainment with SiriusXM Satellite Radio support comes across a near-symphony experience thanks to a standard 12-speaker Sony premium audio, and a voice-activated navigation system makes it easy to roll out for adventure and back home again, hands-free.

But don't take the word of a sales sheet or that of our enthusiasts here at Purvis Ford Lincoln Inc. for it. Stop by our Fredericksburg, VA Ford dealership and see for yourself, with some time behind the wheel. You'll find us conveniently located a short distance from our neighbors in Stafford as well as the Spotsylvania and King George regions.
