New Ford Explorer For Sale in Fredericksburg, VA

Why Spotsylvania Drivers Are Excited About the 2022 Ford Explorer

Three spacious rows of seating and powerful engine options are two things that drivers love about the Ford Explorer. This SUV is now available in an exciting new ST-Line trim. This is just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the things that the Purvis Ford wants you to know about the new Ford Explorer.

The Ford Explorer's Cargo Space

The Explorer is versatile and practical. A large part of this is due to the cargo space. When you need all three rows of seats up for passengers, there are still over 18 cubic feet for putting gear. When you fold down the third row, the Explorer then presents you with nearly 48 cubic feet of space, and folding down the second-row as well can increase this up to 87.8 cubic feet.

The Ford Explorer's Powertrain Options

There are two powertrains to test out when you are selecting the perfect Ford Explorer. A turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine is standard, and it creates 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque to help you get around Stafford with ease. This is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive. All-wheel drive is also available. If you are after something stronger, a twin-turbo V6 is also available. Models that have this under the hood can produce up to 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.

The Ford Explorer's Safety Features

Advanced driver aids are standard across the board when it comes to the new Explorer. Blind-spot monitoring is an incredibly important feature that can let you know if there is a vehicle where you cannot see it when you are switching lanes. Rear cross-traffic alert, also standard, helps you when you are in reverse. Lane-keeping assist is also standard and frontal collision mitigation. Further adding to the appeal of the Explorer is the standard trailer sway control feature, which can adjust the brakes to help control trailer movement if the system detects excess movement.

Starting with the ST-Line, the new Explorer adds extras such as evasive steering assist and adaptive cruise control. A lane-keeping system is also added, which has the ability to make minor steering corrections as needed to keep the Explorer from drifting over the lines. Top trims of the Explorer are also equipped with a surround-view camera system.

The Ford Explorer's Technology Features

An 8-inch touchscreen is standard for the latest Explorer, along with a six-speaker sound system and smartphone integration with Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. For the XLT model, this SUV gains USB ports in the second row. The new ST-Line model not only adds wireless device charging but navigation with voice control as well. This same model also has a 12-speaker sound system that you can enjoy all your favorite music on as you go about your business in King George and beyond. If you want even more speakers, the King Ranch has a 14-speaker B&O sound system and a 10.1-inch touchscreen.

The Ford Explorer's Timberline Trim Level

If you are one of the many drivers in the area that likes to leave the pavement on occasion, we invite you to check out the Timberline model of the new Explorer. This trim level comes standard with all-wheel drive, and it gives the SUV front tow hooks and underbody skid plates. All-terrain tires and a higher ride height help the Timberline go further on your Spotsylvania adventures, and the standard trailer tow package helps you bring along all your favorite toys.
