Active Park Assist 2.0

Available Active Park Assist 2.0 makes it easy to nail an impressive park, time after time - even in tight parallel or perpendicular spots.

Connected Tech for Easy Trips

The 2023 Ford Explorer® SUV comes equipped with plenty of smart road trip-ready features. Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology helps you navigate increasingly distracting and crowded roads. Staying connected is easy too, with standard SYNC® 3 Technology and FordPass® Connect® along for the ride.

Auto High-Beam Headlamps

Auto High-Beam Headlamps can sense poor lighting conditions and switch on to light your path ahead and automatically dim when they sense oncoming headlights. So, you can keep your focus - and both hands on the wheel.

Rear View Camera

Backing up made easy. The Rear View Camera provides a clear view of what's behind your vehicle so you can navigate reverse with confidence.

BLIS® with Cross-Traffic Alert

BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) can help detect and alert you to vehicles in your blind spot, while Cross-Traffic Alert can detect traffic behind you when you're slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway.

Pre-Collision Assist® With Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB)

This feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians detected in your path. If an impact becomes imminent and you don't take corrective action, the brakes can apply automatically. But don't worry - they'll only activate if needed. *

*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver's attention, judgment and the need to control the vehicle. Pre-collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking detects pedestrians, but not in all conditions, and can help avoid or reduce a collision. It does not replace safe driving. See Owner's Manual for details and limitations.

Lane-Keeping System

Lane-Keeping System scans your vehicle's position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you're starting to drift. If you drift a few times, you'll see a coffee cup icon on the windshield, letting you know it's time to take a break.*

*Lane-Keeping System does not control steering.

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps you keep pace on your journey and features Speed Sign Recognition that can slow down your vehicle if the traffic ahead has stopped or slowed. ACC with Stop-and-Go can even help you come to a complete stop. As soon as things clear, you'll resume your set speed. The added Lane Centering feature also scans lane markings to help you keep your vehicle centered between the lines.*

*If vehicle is stopped for more than three seconds, driver must intervene and press "RES" button or accelerator pedal to resume system operation.

Take All You Need On Every Trip

2023 Ford Explorer® models offer seating for up to six passengers when equipped with available second-row captain's chairs and seating for up to seven when equipped with the second-row bench seat. Combined with 87.8 cu. ft. of cargo capacity behind the first row with the rear seats folded flat, 47.9 cu. ft. behind the second row with the third row folded and 18.2 cu. ft. behind the third-row seats, you can take everything from tents and coolers to sports equipment - along with everyone - on trips near or far. *

*Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and weight distribution.

Trailer Sway Control

Working with AdvanceTrac® with RSC® (Roll Stability Control™), standard trailer sway control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to help you maintain trailer control.
