From the powerful engine and great towing capacity to the many features for connectivity and comfort, you'll love your 2017 Ford Explorer Sport from Arlington Heights Ford.

Power and Performance

The 2017 Ford Explorer Sport features a powerful 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine. EcoBoost technology is a unique Ford system that uses natural aspiration with turbocharged fuel direct injection to save you energy, with up to 20% better fuel efficiency and 15% fewer emissions than comparable engines without this technology. This twin turbocharged engine produces an incredible 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque thanks to the EcoBoost system's incredible capacity for power. It comes with a quasi-dual exhaust with chrome tips for more efficient aspiration and a reduction of knocks and stalling, plus a sporty flair on the rear fascia!

With the six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission, this engine gets an incredible 22 mpg highway. It comes with intelligent four-wheel drive, which uses sensors in your wheels to detect slippage or loss of traction the moment it happens and sends torque immediately to the wheels that need it the most. Finally, when you opt for the Class III trailer tow package, you'll be able to tow up to 5,000 lbs. of cargo at a time!


The 2017 Ford Explorer Sport is packed with technology to make your life more convenient and connected. The remote keyless entry uses a remote key fob that lets you lock, unlock, and start your car from yards away. It works with the Hands-Free Power Liftgate, which can be opened easily with just the touch of a button to make loading cargo easy even if your hands are full. Intelligent access with push-button start lets you keep your keys in your pocket or bag to start your car with one touch.

The Explorer Sport also comes with Ford Sync 3, which lets you sync up your favorite mobile device to your in-vehicle computer. Natural voice commands, quick response, and pinch-and-swipe navigation make Ford Sync 3 as easy to use as your phone, letting you listen to your favorite music, check your social media, and even get sports scores and stock prices while you drive, as well as placing hands-free calls from your Bluetooth streaming audio system. Choose a premium Sony audio system with 12 speakers and Clear Phase and Live acoustics for concert-quality sounds in your Explorer Sport. Sirius XM satellite radio brings you 150 channels of entertainment, along with optional travel, traffic, and weather information for your local metropolitan area. Finally, the voice-activated navigation system keeps you on track.


The 2017 Ford Explorer Sport is designed with a bold and athletic look, letting everyone know who truly rules the road! The confident stance and aggressive lines will turn heads wherever you go, whether you're on vacation in the wilderness or just running errands. The high gloss black grille adds a sophisticated touch, while the black bumpers and body side cladding set off the bold colors like Ruby Red Metallic, Smoked Quartz, or Ingot Silver.

The liftgate spoiler helps reduce turbulence for a smoother and more controllable drive, improving performance and fuel efficiency. LED signature lighting, low-beam headlamps, and LED tail lamps cast a brighter and clearer light than traditional halogen lamps while using only a fraction of the energy. Black roof rails add a complex touch to your Explorer, letting you transport extra luggage or sporting equipment easily.


Inside the 2017 Ford Explorer Sport, you'll enjoy a comfortable and luxurious cabin with room for seven. Dual-zone automatic climate control keeps everyone cozy, while the heated leather-wrapped steering wheel includes mounted controls for your stereo, cruise control, and more. Enjoy perforated leather-trimmed heated seats with red accent stitching, or choose multi-contour front seats with Active Motion to keep you secure and steady even when riding over the roughest roads. The twin panel moonroof lets you open up the cabin to let in the natural light and fresh air.

Fold down the rear and second-row seats, and you'll get an incredible 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space along with cargo nets and hooks to keep your gear secure.
