Is the Ford Explorer a Good SUV?

  • At Kelley Blue Book, they praised the Ford Explorer for its three powerful engine options, saying, “A shortage of horsepower is never an issue in the 2019 Ford Explorer.” The standard 3.5L V6 engine generates 290 hp, and while the available turbocharged 2.3L 4-cylinder engine comes in at 280 hp, KBB notes that it “compensates with greater torque (which affects the rate of acceleration and is often preferable to outright power).”
  • While the 2019 Ford Explorer is available in five trim levels (base, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum), the folks at Auto Week point out that “no matter the model, it comes with three well-designed rows of seating.” They also love that it offers a “cavernous” amount of cargo space, and how easy it is to fold down the third row of seating, “thanks to the simple, single-button power-folding system.”
  • U.S. News also highlighted the spacious Explorer interior, calling its cargo capacities “among the best in the segment,” while also pointing out its “lineup of muscular powertrains and balanced handling.”
  • The folks at Edmunds appreciate the “quiet and comfortable cabin” offered in the 2019 Ford Explorer, as well as its “easy to use” technology, like Ford SYNC®. What Ford Explorer trim level does Edmunds recommend? “In Sport trim, the Explorer shines brightest.”

Well, there you have it! As you can see, the 2019 Ford Explorer is an ideal SUV for Crystal Lake families. With a total of 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space, a second-row 60/40 split-fold-flat bench seat, and third-row 50/50 split-fold bench seat, it's easier than ever to reconfigure the Explorer to suit your needs, whether you're picking up a new piece of furniture or packing for vacation. If you can't fit everything, the Explorer towing capacity will enable you to tow up to 5,000 pounds.
