New Ford Explorer

The 2012 Ford Explorer is the most capable Explorer ever. It starts with the structure -- thanks to high-tech materials and advanced forming technology. To help you handle everything from rugged off-roading to snow-covered roadways, there's the available Intelligent 4WD System and available Terrain Management System™. For your peace of mind, Curve Control, an enhancement to AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™, delivers enhanced control in turns. Open the door. The Explorer offers up to seven-passenger seating capacity and seats that fold down for cargo space on demand -- up to 80.7 cubic feet of space. You expect capability in an SUV. Explorer delivers it.

Available Terrain Management System™

The available Terrain Management System allows you to easily shift on the fly into one of four settings to match the terrain you're driving in: -- Normal -- biases torque to the front wheels and sends it to the rear only as needed -- Mud/Ruts -- switches the throttle to a more aggressive mode, limits upshifting and desensitizes stability control allowing the tires to spin as needed -- Sand -- the throttle throws maximum torque to the wheels, placing the transmission in lower gears for as long as possible, which allows the wheels to spin aggressively -- Grass/Gravel/Snow -- places the throttle in a setting to minimize wheel slip.

Three Rows. Seating for up to Seven.

The Explorer can carry up to seven passengers. The second row features a 60/40 split fold-flat bench, while the third row has a 50/50 split-folding seat with generous passenger space. Behind the third row, there is up to 21 cubic feet of cargo volume. For cargo space on demand, the second and third rows can fold flat for 80.7 cubic feet of cargo room.

PowerFold® Third-Row Seat

At the touch of a button, the available, class-exclusive* PowerFold-- third-row seat can fold flat for additional cargo room. Simply push a button for a flat load floor. When in the upright position, it comfortably seats two passengers.

Intelligent 4WD

Whether the road is filled with gravel, covered with ice or soaked by rain, the easy-to-use, shift-on-the-fly Intelligent 4WD System on the 2012 Explorer helps provide sure-footed traction. Intelligent 4WD is fully automatic, instantly delivering traction to the wheels with the most traction when wheel slip is detected. Working in concert with the 4WD System is the Terrain Management System™, which allows you to easily shift on the fly into one of four settings to match the terrain you're driving in. Take your pick of Normal, Mud/Ruts, Sand or Grass/Gravel/Snow. The 4WD System also includes Hill Descent Control™, which makes tackling off-road down hills much easier. Just push a button, tap your brakes and the Explorer will maintain a steady speed on its own, letting you concentrate on steering. On top of these features, the Intelligent 4WD System in the Explorer weighs less than traditional 4WD systems.

Curve Control

Curve Control will slow you down when it senses that you're going too fast for a particular curve. Employing throttle reduction and four-wheel braking intervention, it's always active in helping you maintain control around the curves. Curve Control, standard on all the Explorer models, is an enhancement to AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™.

Strong and Lightweight Structure

Thanks to advanced high-tech materials and assembly processes, the structure in the 2012 Explorer is both lightweight and strong. For starters, the A- and B-pillars are constructed of high-strength boron steel for greatly increased roof crush strength. The front-end support structure features advanced technology, constructed using a lightweight composite (40 percent glass-filled polypropylene with a glass-mat overlay), which matches the lateral stiffness of magnesium while reducing weight.



SUVs have always offered plenty of muscle, but many times it came at the expense of fuel efficiency. The 2012 Explorer offers the available new 2.0L I-4 EcoBoost™ engine, delivering the power of a V6 in a four-cylinder engine. The standard 3.5L V6 engine features best-in-class 25 highway mpg,* unsurpassed 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque.* With all that power and torque, Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped.** An SUV that delivers best-in-class fuel highway mpg and no-compromise power -- that's the 2012 Explorer.

Best-in-class hwy mpg* 2.0L I4 EcoBoost™ Engine

The EcoBoost inline four-cylinder engine combines two different technologies -- turbocharging and twin independent variable cam timing (Ti-VCT) -- to deliver the performance of a much larger engine. It churns out 240 horsepower and 270 lb.-ft. of torque across a wide 1,750 -- 4,000 rpm range. Features include: -- All aluminum -- Direct fuel injection -- Single turbocharger -- Piston cooling jets for durability -- Adaptive knock control
*20 city/28 hwy/23 combined mpg 2.0L I4. Class is Three-Row Large Utilities, Non-Hybrid.

3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine

The standard 3.5L twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) V6 engine in the Explorer can be easily described in two words: no compromise. It provides the best-in-class combination of V6 horsepower and fuel economy* while delivering unsurpassed 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. That means you have the power for merging, accelerating and pulling a trailer. You just may not visit the gas station as much.

Abundant Towing Capacity

With a towing capacity of up to 5,000 lbs., when properly equipped, the Explorer can haul a boat, camper or trailer. Power comes from its standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine that delivers 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. The Class III Trailer Tow Package, required for towing, includes an engine oil cooler and wiring harness. The Explorer has several features that make towing easier. There's the available rear view camera that provides a video image on the center console screen of the area behind your vehicle. The screen has guides that help you align your vehicle when hooking up a trailer. Hill start assist, included in the available Intelligent 4WD System, helps keep the vehicle from rolling backward, making it easier to pull away when on a slope or hill with a grade greater than five degrees. Standard trailer sway control helps make towing even easier by detecting trailer sway and automatically reducing engine speed and applying asymmetric braking to help counter it.* When it comes to towing, the Explorer is the perfect choice.

Best-in-Class Fuel Efficiency

With the available 2.0 L EcoBoost engine, the 2012 Explorer delivers 28 hwy mpg* while delivering 240 horsepower and 270 pounds of torque.

Hill Descent Control™

The available Intelligent 4WD System features Hill Descent Control™. This makes tackling off-road down hills much easier. Just push a button, tap your brakes and the Explorer will maintain a steady speed on its own, letting you concentrate on steering.
