Choose the Best Ford Explorer Trim to Fits Your Lifestyle in 2023

Although the new 2023 model has retained the durable unibody construction you’re used to seeing, it now also features a new rear-wheel-drive system that’s great for better handling, improved overall balance, and excellent towing stability.

Also, the 2023 Ford Explorer comes with increased cargo and passenger space. This SUV can either seat seven, or six if you choose the second-row captain’s chairs, and the entire cabin boasts ample head- and legroom for outstanding comfort. When you need more cargo space, the Ford Explorer comes with convenient fold-away second- and third-row seats that fold flat to provide 87.8 cubic feet of room.

The 2023 Ford Explorer features a new hybrid model engine, which includes a 3.3-liter V-6 engine paired with an electric motor and a 1.5-kW battery. Come into Golf Mill Ford, your local Ford dealership for new and used Ford Explorers, and see all our trim levels. We can help you decide which model would work best for you.
