A Stylish Inside and Out

Sit inside and you'll love how stylish and functional the interior of your Explorer is. The dashboard features a centralized layout that leaves everything within reach of the driver, so you don't have to reach far to adjust climate control settings, or even take your hands off the wheel to adjust radio volume or station. The low step-in height makes it easy to get in and out of your Explorer in Kalamazoo, and the soft and supportive seats will keep you comfortable, all day long.

You'll have seating for seven, standard, though you can opt for second-row captain's chairs and lower your seating by one but adds a bit of flexibility and comfort. If you opt for the captain's chairs, your passengers will love how they can slide and recline these seats for maximum legroom and comfort, all around. They also make it easy to access the third row.

If you have children who need car seats, the Explorer has all the LATCH and tether anchors you need. The second-row captain's chairs and outboard seats on the bench both have a complete set of LATCH anchors. The passenger-side third-row seat has a full set of LATCH connections as well. If you opt for the second-row bench seat, the middle seat has a tether anchor and can borrow lower anchors from either side.


You have three available engines on your Explorer, including:

  • Standard 3.5-liter V6 with 290 horsepower
  • Available 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder with 280 horsepower
  • Available twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6 that offers 365 horsepower with standard all-wheel drive.

The base V6 and available four-cylinder offer a six-speed automatic and front-wheel drive standard. You can add all-wheel drive to either if you prefer. If you choose the twin-turbo V6, you'll find a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. That towing number is right in line with many competitors in the class. You'll love the smooth and stable ride quality that is a breeze to drive whether you're merging on the highways around Kalamazoo or just running errands around town.


If you're looking for a spacious SUV, this midsize SUV doesn't disappoint. You'll enjoy ample cargo space, with enough space for each of your passenger's bags behind the rear seats. If you fold the second and third row of seats down, you'll open up 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space. That's enough room for 25 carry-on size bags, but you can also load up your bicycles, small furniture items, or just about anything else you can think of inside. The cargo space is not only just ample in size but very usable. The wide rear door opening makes it easy to load your belongings. The available hands-free power liftgate lets you open the rear gate with just a wave of your foot. You'll also find numerous storage compartments and cubbies inside for all of your small belongings.

Technology and Safety

Your next family SUV in Allegan should have all the technology and modern features that you want, and of course, need in Paw Paw. Standard equipment is the SYNC infotainment system, that features a 4.2-inch display screen. Standard equipment includes Bluetooth phone and audio, voice recognition technology, and a USB Port. If you opt for the available SYNC 3® system, you'll find a bright and crisp touchscreen display. The SYNC 3® system is a driver's favorite, with an easy to use menu, responsive interface, and how everything is right within reach.

With your SYNC 3® system, you'll find Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot, real-time traffic, real-time weather, and navigation integration. You'll love how everyone in your family can stay connected with the mobile Wi-Fi hotspot, that's capable of connecting up to 10 devices. You'll also have the option of adding a rear-seat DVD entertainment system to keep your kids entertained for long drives.

The Explorer is no stranger to safety features. The 2017 Ford Explorer earned top marks from the NHTSA as well as the IIHS. Standard on your Ford Explorer is a rearview camera and the MyKey system, though you can add numerous active safety and driver assistance features. MyKey allows you set limits on features like radio volume and vehicle speed for specific drivers of your Explorer. This is a favorite feature of families with teen drivers that still need to learn the rules of the road. Available safety features include:

  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Automatic High Beams
  • Blind-Spot Monitoring
  • Forward Collision Warning
  • Front Parking Sensors
