2017 Ford Explorer
Life can be a challenge, but if you're like me, you have one mantra: "work hard, play hard." So, when it's time to finding a vehicle, your choice has to be able to do the same. With utility and comfort, as well as infotainment and adventure, the 2017 Ford Explorer does just that. The Explorer will work hard for you, so you can get your play on.
When you're going out to find adventure, you want to make sure that you get there and back in one piece-the adventure shouldn't come on the road. The 2017 Ford Explorer offers a heap of features that focus on your safety. The Lane-Keeping System will help you get home by either vibrating the steering wheel as a warning, guiding the car back into the lane, or both by guiding you back if you don't respond to the warning. When you're blazing your own trail through the woods, the 180-degree forward camera and front sensing system will let you know when you're getting a little too close to that tree. The rear cross traffic warning will keep you from backing into the other boggers at the mud pit. The Explorer won't be the reason your adventures turn into cautionary tales, that's for sure.
Finding your way, to work or to the next mountain to climb, is easier using the 2017 Ford Explorer's Sync 3 System. Connect your smart phone to the Explorer's touch screen display and open up a whole new world of convenience: easy navigation, a industry-standard audio system, and voice-activated capability that actually responds to conversational commands so you won't have to repeat yourself six times before throwing up your hands in frustration. You'll be able to find the head of your next off-road trail, or the restaurant you'll go to after you've conquered it, without taking your eyes off of the offroad or the highway. The USB ports in the front and second row will keep you and your passengers charged so you can record and post the videos of your mountain bike ride or take that conference call as you commute.
Adventures, like your upcoming camping trip in the mountains or that weekend DIY marathon, tend to require a lot of cargo. The 2017 Ford Explorer has plenty of room for it. If you're a minimalist camper, the trunk is spacious enough for everything you might need. If you are an overpacker, or like to take on a project that might include large boxes and telescoping tools, you can fold the third row flat with the touch of a button to fit your extra supplies. With that and the flat folding second row, you have up to 81.7 cubic feet of cargo room. When your cargo is friends and family, you're equally well equipped. You can seat up to seven people or go for a little extra comfort in the second row with optional bucket seats.
The 2017 Ford Explorer can take you to any destination. For your wake boarding trip, for example, you'll get a 5,000lb towing capacity to get your 13' inboard, your boards, and your cooler full of drinks to the water. If your trip is one down a windy mountain road, the 6 Speed SelectShift Transmission allows you to up or down shift at will to get around those curves with ease. The Explorer doesn't abandon you in the city, either. With tools like Enhanced Active Parking Assist, which will search for suitable parking spaces and then back the vehicle in for you as you work the pedals, and the Blind Spot Information System, you'll dominate whatever terrain you find yourself in.
