This SUV Can Do It All

If you're in the market for a spacious, family-friendly SUV that can conquer the carpool lane and haul the boat to Lake Houston, the 2017 Ford Explorer is a perfect pick. This iconic SUV is a trifecta of beauty, brains and brawn all at a superb value.

Classy and sporty on the outside with a luxury, high-tech cabin on the inside and a powerful engine with available 4WD to top it off, the Explorer is a total knock-out. This model year, the 2017 Ford Explorer in Houston boasts a new sporty accessory package and innovative updates to its infotainment system that are sure to excite all SUV shoppers.

New Accessories Inside and Out

Many 2017 Ford Explorer reviews will tell you that this SUV shines inside and out with the new XLT Sport Appearance package. On the outside, the package adds shiny 20-inch wheels, blacked out headlamps and tail lamps and black roof-rack side rails. The package also refreshes the cabin--the base cloth upholstery is upgraded to sporty, leather-trimmed seats with suede inserts and a leather-wrapped steering wheel.

At its base level, the spacious cabin offers seating for seven, front and rear climate control and privacy glass for the second and third rows. A SYNC infotainment system with voice control, app-link and hands-free calling comes standard across all models. To indulge in more premium luxury features such as push-button start, a heated steering wheel, a twin-panel moon roof, ambient lighting and Nirvana leather seating, buyers can upgrade to a higher trim level.

Choose Your Engine

The 2017 Ford Explorer in Houston comes with three different engine options. The base engine is a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 that generates 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. For a more eco-efficient option, buyers can opt for a 2.3L EcoBoost engine that makes 280 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. Lower trim models come standard with FWD, but a 4WD upgrade is available.

On both the Sport and Platinum models, a high-powered 365 horsepower 3.5L V6 turbo direct-inject engine with 350 lb.-ft. of torque comes standard. These higher trim models also feature the Intelligent 4WD System with Hill Descent Control and Terrain Management, making them a great option for rough and tough use. All engine options come mated to a SelectShift 6-speed automatic transmission with wheel-mounted paddle shifters.

Upgrade for More Safety

The 2017 Explorer is designed to keep riders safe in all conditions. Many 2017 Ford Explorer reviews note that the SUV has great visibility and features that make driving around the family or hauling large loads less stressful.

The AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability and Curve Control sense and adapt to potentially dangerous situations, ensuring drivers have maximum control of the vehicle at all times. Other standard safety features include a rearview camera, Belt-Minder, a SOS Post-Crash Alert System, a Safety Canopy System and a LATCH system. Advanced driver assistance features such as smart cruise control, front collision warning with emergency braking, lane departure warning with lane keep assist, blind spot alert and reverse sensors come standard on higher trims.
