What engines power the 2022 Explorer?

One of the top reasons why the Explorer will never let you down is the simple fact that the engine lineup itself is something you won't be growing tired of. Rear-wheel drive is standard throughout, although you can opt for all-wheel drive for additional traction that can help you when the weather turns. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder, which can get you 310 pound-feet of torque and 300 horsepower. Moving up to another engine is the 3.3-liter V6 that comes connected to an electric motor. Here you'll be getting around 322 pound-feet of torque and 318 horsepower. The very last engine option for the 2022 Explorer is a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, which produces 415 pound-feet of torque and 400 horsepower. No matter which engine you want, you'll be in good hands, especially with the standard ten-speed automatic transmission.

What features does the 2022 Explorer offer?

Beyond just the power of this machine, you also want a vehicle that has all of the features you and your passengers are looking for. Some of the most common standard ones include an 8-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a powered tailgate, LED exterior lighting, tri-zone automatic climate control, keyless entry and ignition, 18-inch alloy wheels, Wi-Fi, an 8-inch touchscreen, satellite radio, and cloth upholstery. Optional features for the Explorer include a torque-sensing limited-slip rear differential, a hands-free tailgate, simulated leather upholstery, heated and ventilated front seats, a universal garage door opener, a dual-pane moonroof, massaging front seats, and even a rear-seat entertainment system.

What kind of safety does the Ford Explorer have?

One major component of every vehicle, especially those manufactured by Ford, is that they have the safety necessary to give you true peace of mind. With the 2022 model, you'll gain blind-spot monitoring, forward collision warning, automatic high beams, cross-traffic alert, automatic emergency braking, lane-keeping assistance, side wind stabilization, and rear parking sensors.
