Are you thinking that a 2024 Ford Explorer might be a prime contender for your new vehicle this year? We’ve highlighted some of the most intriguing and noteworthy features and capabilities of the all-new Ford SUV to demonstrate why the 2024 Explorer is the ideal addition to any family adventure.


Your Ultimate Outdoor Companion


You have an active family and need a companion who can keep up and looks good doing it. That’s the Ford Explorer. Its sleek curves give it an athletic appearance that looks great on the soccer field or on the road. With available extras like LED headlamps, the road always looks bright, even after sunset. But it’s not just its bold grille and stunning design that will impress you.


The Explorer has two engine options to offer drivers plenty of possibilities behind the wheel.
A 300 hp 2.5 EcoBoost engine is standard and offers a jolt of fun to your daily drive. For advanced performance, the 400 hp 3.0L EcoBoost V6 is equal parts thrilling and efficient thanks to its pairing with Auto Start-Stop technology. Both engines are matched with a 10-speed automotive transmission for smooth acceleration and top performance when it comes to daily driving or towing.

A Terrain Management System comes standard on both the RWD and 4WD models. Drivers can access up to seven different modes depending on their vehicle’s configuration. Choose from Normal, Trail, Slippery, Sport, Tow/Haul, or Eco Mode to better suit your drive. Drivers with a 4WD capable vehicle get the additional Deep Snow/Sand mode to help them out when they hit a slick spot.


The 2024 Explorer can tow up to 5,600 lbs. This makes it ideal for bringing along your boat, small camper trailer, or any additional gear you might need. The capabilities of the Explorer have the potential to elevate your family’s experience. From daily drives to school or practice to summer road trips up to the cabin or lake, the Explorer offers enough performance options to tackle a variety of terrains plus tow along any extras your journey demands.


Comfort and Convenience Meets Capability


Now that we know the Explorer has performance covered, what about comfort for yourself and your family? The Explorer has you in mind, offering an intuitive driving experience with user-friendly tech, supportive seating, and a modern design. The interior can comfortably seat up to seven and have room for all you need to bring along.


Both the second and third rows can easily fold flat so you can take advantage of the Explorer’s ample 87.8 cu.ft. of max cargo space. An available PowerFold third-row seat will fold down with the push of a button. At the same time, E-Z Entry second-row seating allows fast access to the third row, even with a child seat in place. Add on a Twin-Panel Moonroof to let in the sun or enjoy a starry night view.


The front of the Explorer is centered around the driver, with technology brought to your fingertips. SYNC3 technology and a streamlined infotainment system give you choice and convenience for a rewarding trip. Seamlessly sync your smartphone to access your favorite apps, playlists, and navigation. The FordPass mobile app can be accessed on your phone and helps you keep track of maintenance, sends reminders, and even offers roadside assistance.


The Explorer doesn’t just enhance the way you drive but gives you peace of mind with its standard advanced safety systems like Pre-Collision Assist and a Blind Spot Information System. This is just one part of Ford’s standard Co-Pilot360 technology that includes cutting-edge driver assistance systems, advanced braking, rear camera views, and even auto high beams to help take some of the stress out of night driving.


Whether you have a long trip ahead of you or are loading up the kids for school, comfort and convenience are key to a great time when you’re away from home. The Explorer was created to simplify your time behind the wheel and make every moment count. From the roomy seating that makes space for a last-minute passenger to the cargo and thoughtful cubby spaces that help you organize your family’s essentials to ensure you have that First Aid Kit and bug spray for your camping trip, the Explorer lends a helping hand on a daily basis. Its range of safety and driver’s assistance features goes a step further, giving you peace of mind during times of heavy traffic or when navigating a sudden storm. All elements of the Explorer work in harmony to ensure that every member of your family enjoys the ride.


The Timberline: Off-Road Ready


You’re a family on the go. Where are you going? To the sports field? The park? Maybe you like to play things fast and loose and prefer to go searching for an adventure that stretches beyond the treeline. Wherever the open road takes you, it’s important to know that your SUV can not only keep up but also pick up the slack when needed. In that case, the Explorer is a great choice. However, if you’d like to push your vehicle to the limits of its potential, we’re talking muddy trails and rocky roads, you might want to put the Explorer Timberline at the top of your list.


The Timberline is the Explorer’s high-end, off-road-ready trim that is built for rough-and-tumble play. The six-seater Timberline is designed with features that make it appear uniquely aggressive. A bold carbonized grille with available performance auxiliary lights, exclusive badging, and LED fog lamps, just to name a few, means the Timberline not only looks impressive but has the capability to back it up.


The off-road performance of the Timberline is highlighted by its bright LED headlamps that are capable of illuminating your night trip. A high 8.7 inches of ground clearance and steel skid plates allow it to travel over obstacles that would hinder or damage a less prepared vehicle. A turbocharged 2.3L powerhouse ensures it’s capable of great things, while the All-Terrain Management system can help you out when things get slick. 18-inch all-terrain tires are paired with off-road front struts and rear shocks to instill confidence in drivers if they should hit a rough patch. We love that the Timberline comes standard with the Class IV Trailer Tow Package, which makes it capable of towing upwards of 5,300 lbs.

When the Timberline says to bring it on, you know it’s not bluffing. A roof rack and great towing potential let you bring everything along, including your bikes, camping gear, luggage, and sports equipment, for a week-long adventure that will create a lifetime of memories.


Inside, it’s effortless to relax and enjoy the journey as much as the destination. Creature comforts like a standard heated front seat and steering wheel, remote start, second-row captain’s chairs, E-Z Entry, and Armrests make it easy to get an early start. Then there’s the exclusive Timberline Technology Package that adds noteworthy conveniences to your ride, like enhancing your audio system to a 12-speaker Bang & Olufsen sound system or giving you wireless charging so you can say goodbye to tangled cables. The included Third-Row PowerFold Seat and Universal Garage Door Opener streamline folding down the seats and loading up equipment and necessities for your adventure. An Auto-Dimming Rearview Mirror for increased convenience and safety during your night trips.
