Five Top-Shelf Trim Levels

When shopping for a 2017 Ford Explorer in the San Francisco Bay area, you can choose from the following five trim grades: Explorer, Explorer XLT, Explorer Limited, Explorer Sport and Explorer Platinum. Base level features are desirable, such as Bluetooth, SYNC and a rearview camera. Other convenient features include climate controls for back-seat passengers and cruise control for those long road trips. Upper trims add to this already impressive list with amenities like heated seats, SYNC 3 and a rear seat entertainment system.

Three Peppy Yet Efficient Powertrains

Test drive a 2017 Ford Explorer in Colma and try all three available engines. The base powerplant is a 3.5-liter V6 that achieves 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. Above this, Sport and Platinum trims get a twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 with 365 hp and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. The final engine is an optional 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that makes 280 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. A six-speed SelectShift automatic is standard with all engines.

Ford Explorer Safety Features

The Ford Explorer comes standard with safety equipment such as AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control, a Safety Canopy System, Traction Control, an SOS Post-Crash Alert System and LATCH, among other features. In addition to this, the SUV offers added security with appointments like remote keyless entry, a SecuriLock Passive Anti-Theft System and tire pressure monitoring.
