Under the hood of the Ford Explorer Sport is the 3.5 L EcoBoost V6 engine that's capable of generating up to 365 horsepower at 5,550 RPM and 350 pound-feet of torque at 3,500 RPM. Powered by the SelectShift technology, the six-speed automatic transmission system works in sync with the Intelligent 4WD system. The Terrain Management System optimizes traction on different surfaces including gravel, mud, sand and snow. Rolling down sloped roads and paths is made easy with some leverage from the Hill Descent Control. Additional stability is delivered by the AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control. This advanced technology uses two gyroscopes to analyze the vehicle's mechanical parameters in real time. Navigating meandering paths is simplified by the Curve Control. With a towing capacity of 5,000 pounds, the Ford Explorer Sport makes a great vehicle for road trips that require heavy equipment. The Trailer Sway Control keeps an attached trailer aligned with the vehicle on elevated or curved roads.


The second-row bucket seats in the Ford Explorer Sport can be adjusted with the Power-Assist Fold function. Having a 50/50 split-folding design, the third-row bench seat can also be easily configured with some leverage from the PowerFold technology. An automatic climate control system with two zones keeps all of the car's third rows at the ideal temperatures. Featuring twin panels, the optional moonroof adds some natural climate control options in this spacious SUV. A heating steering is available to ensure a comfortable grip during the winter season.

A GPS navigation system is integrated into the Ford Explorer Sport's SYNC infotainment console. The 8-inch touch screen has a smartphone-inspired interface that offers easy navigation of menus. SiriusXM Satellite Radio can be blasted on the Sony sound system that comes with 12 speakers. Featuring a USB charging station, SD card reader and a 12-v power point, the media bin offers convenient ways to directly connect various gadgets. Additionally, you may download the FordPass application to remotely manage and control this premium Ford SUV.


The Ford Explorer Sport comes with the Forward and Reverse Sensing System that detects stationary obstacles. A beeping sound will come on when you get too close to parked cars, walls and other things. A forward-facing camera lens captures a 180-degree view of your projected path. The Explorer Sport is available with the Blind Spot Information and Rear Cross Traffic Alert, which reduce the risk of lateral or rear collisions. During an accident, the Safety Canopy System manages the deployment of the air bags. Help will also be on the way thanks to the SOS Post-Crash Alert System. The rear seats are available with inflatable seat belts that mitigate upper-body injuries during sudden deceleration.
