Spacious, handsome, well-equipped and able to hustle, the 2019 Ford Explorer is a popular choice with buyers of 3-row crossover SUVs. It does, however, face tough competition from the Honda Pilot, Toyota Highlander, Chevrolet Traverse and others, while nearing the end of this current generation.
New Features and Revisions
The new Explorer XLT trim gains blind-spot monitoring and a power tailgate as standard. More infotainment and driver-assistance features are also available. Sport and Platinum trims receive steering-wheel-mounted paddle shifters, while the Sport offers heated rear seats. And new cosmetic choices join the list of options.
