Experience the 2022 Ford Explorer at Maplecrest Ford

The 2022 Ford Explorer is well-suited for family. This new package is upscale than its predecessor to enhance more attraction. Long-time fans of Ford in Vauxhall, NJ will find the Explorer to be a comfortable and practical vehicle, and that's in no small part thanks to its three-row seating.


Powertrain and Performance

Each engine offered by the Explorer motivates it with authority. The base engine is a turbocharged four-cylinder, which produces 300 horsepower. The twin-turbo V6 is optional, and it churns out 400 horsepower. The plug-in hybrid powertrain manages to produce 318 horsepower. Whichever engine you choose, you'll get the same 10-speed automatic transmission. This transmission works swiftly and provides timely shifts throughout the Vauxhall area.

Those focused on saving should stick with the standard engine, which records gas mileage ratings of 28 mpg on the highway and 21 mpg in the city. The twin-turbo registers 22 mpg on the city and highway. Opting for the all-wheel-drive will drop the ratings in each engine. The Explorer doesn't exhibit body lean when cruising on meandering roads and around turns due to its improved handling.

In off-road situations, this SUV will not let you down due to the off-road capabilities it boasts. It has plenty of ground clearance, a limited-slip differential and shock absorbers that do a good job of absorbing ditches and bumps. The new Ford Explorer has excellent towing capabilities with a towing capacity of up to 5,600 pounds.

Safety and Security

Like any other new model, this new SUV is also filled with plenty of driver assistant features, including parking sensors, which are known to be located on the bumpers. The sensors are designed to measure any object approaching the vehicle, especially when in tightly packed parking lots.

Blind-spot monitoring is also standard, which uses small cameras or sensors mounted underneath the side-view mirrors to detect vehicles on the other lanes. It allows the driver to switch lanes safely. Its driver attention monitor is designed to detect if the driver is alert or tired while cruising on the road.

Driveline traction control is a safety tech that works with all-wheel drive. The tech allows the vehicle to take full advantage of the available traction on the asphalt, primarily when in harsh road conditions. There are more driver assistant features, which you'll get to experience when you purchase this new SUV.


The Ford Explorer is also filled with eye-catching components in the interior. Thanks to the third row, the spacious cabin accommodates up to seven passengers. Each row offers plenty of legroom and headroom, resulting in a comfortable ride for everyone. Leather seating surfaces are only standard in the top-level trims. The lower trims get cloth upholstery standard, but you can still upgrade to leather.

The available cargo space is sure to amaze you with or without folding the rear seats, but if you have more luggage to haul, you can fold the third- and second-row seats to give you up to 87.8 cubic feet of space. You'll also find cupholders, cargo space lights, sunshades and a cloth headliner.

Infotainment System

The interior also features a well-equipped infotainment system that brings along various tech features. You can either choose an 8-inch or 10-inch infotainment touch screen. Most Vauxhall shoppers will prefer the larger 10-inch option. Each touch screen offers similar features, including Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto™, a voice command app, satellite radio and Bluetooth® connectivity. Optional tech features are a 12-inch digital gauge cluster, keyless entry and a rear-seat entertainment system.
