2017 Ford Explorer Strikes a Chord with MotorWeek Staffers

Are you in the market for a full-size SUV? Well, if so, we here at Wichita Falls Ford feel you should do yourself a favor, and say hello to ours, the 2017 Explorer.

Will you fall for it as fast as we did?

Make that determination by watching the video below; here with more on all things Explorer are the industry experts at MotorWeek:

The Explorer's mid-level engine offering -- a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder -- is altogether outstanding.

Optional with the Base and XLT trims, the turbo-four mates with a six-speed automatic transmission to make a healthy 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. It receives front-wheel drive by default; an all-wheel system, meanwhile, is available as an option.

We'd note that this engine is particularly fuel-efficient when had in front-drive form; so equipped, it'll achieve 22 mpg combined (19 city/28 highway).

To learn more about this capable crossover, or to take one for a spin, we suggest you set a course for our Wichita Falls, TX location. Our automotive aces are on hand to address your every query about the Explorer, or any other Ford model within the current lineup.
