Moving people, carrying cargo, virtually anywhere.

A strong structure with advanced materials and technology serves as the foundation for Explorer capability. It’s what makes everything possible from travel on off-road terrain to snow-covered roads, with some high-tech help from the available Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System. And there’s Curve Control, an enhancement to the standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control and its road-hugging capability. Inside, the Explorer provides seating for seven. When carrying things takes priority, the rear seats fold down for cargo space on demand - up to 80.7 cubic feet.
