Safety and Stability

Along with giving you plenty of power, the Explorer also comes with standard features designed to keep your drive as safe and stable as possible, so you always have control of that power. AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control makes use of gyroscopic sensors to keep an eye on your yaw and roll rate, and then compensates to help you maintain control. This works together with Curve Control, which is able to slow you down up to 10 mph quickly and safely if it notices that you're going into a curve too fast and risk sliding.


Towing and Trailering

2017 Ford Explorer Sport Towing & Trailering

No matter which model you go for, you'll be able to opt for one of the Explorer's Tow Packages to help you transport your heaviest loads, whether you're taking your boat out to the harbor or a camper into the woods. The Class III Trailer Tow Package comes with everything you need to get started, including an engine oil cooler, tow hitch, and wiring harness. On top of that, the Explorer also offers a number of amenities to simplify and ease the process. Every model comes with a rear view camera that gives you a real-time picture of what's behind you, taking all the guesswork out of backing up. The hill start assist features keeps your vehicle secure and prevents it from sliding backwards when a hill puts undue duress on it and its payload. And with trailer sway control and AdvanceTrac, your vehicle can monitor trailer sway and adjust your speed and braking automatically to correct it.
