About Ford Explorer

For 2024, the Ford Explorer drops the 3.3L V6 Hybrid engine option along with the related Limited Hybrid and Platinum Hybrid trim levels. Otherwise, the 2024 Explorer carries over essentially unchanged.

The Ford Explorer earned the IIHS 2024 Top Safety Pick+ award like it did for 2023, though at an even higher level this time around.

Experian’s recently released Q4 2023 Automotive Market Trends Report listed the Ford Explorer among the top 10 vehicles that remain in operation on U.S. roads.

Production began of the 2024 Ford Explorer began at Chicago Assembly plant on January 2nd.

Recently the 2025 Ford Explorer debuted with new tech and a redesigned interior. It is available in the Active, Platinum, ST-Line, and ST trim levels with a slightly different look on the outside thanks to a few minor styling updates. In some cases, the 2025 Explorer is actually cheaper than the outgoing model.

Inside, the 2025 Explorer features new soft touch surfaces, available ActiveX seating, silver mesh accents, and a redesigned dashboard that’s been moved forward to increase front row legroom. Underneath, an integrated tray holds an available wireless charger, while each trim level also gets its own unique interior color scheme.

For 2025, BlueCruise is available on the Explorer for the first time ever, available on Platinum, ST-Line, and ST trims.

Additionally, the 2025 Explorer is the first Ford-branded vehicle to get the new Ford Digital Experience software, which was developed in conjunction with Google. It runs on a larger 13.2-inch infotainment screen, which is coupled with a 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster.

Two powertrain choices are available on the 2025 Explorer, with the turbocharged 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost offered as standard on Active, Platinum, and ST-Line trims, and the twin-turbocharged 3.0L V6 EcoBoost offered as standard on ST and optional on Platinum. Output remains the same, with the V6 producing 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. Both engines are mated to the 10-speed automatic transmission, and all four trims come standard with rear-wheel-drive, with all-wheel-drive available as an option.

However, the 2025 Explorer drops Active Park Assist 2.0 as The Blue Oval has been doing with many of its models lately.

Also, the 2025 Explorer won’t have financing deals at launch.

The more rugged and off-road-focused Ford Explorer Timberline will probably be revived this year.

Production of the 2025 Ford Explorer kicks off this May.

    I own a 2020 Explorer ST and I like this car very much. What disappoints me is the terrible dash design for vehicle in this price range. It seems the screens are an after thought with no real design like many vehicles in this size and price range. They look like just a stick on screen instead of being designed into the dash. When I saw the Chinese version last year I was hopeful this would end up on the updated American version but when I saw the 2025 it was very disappointing. Something is very wrong at Ford in their interior dash designs. That is the reason I have not purchased another Explorer. In fact since mine will be 5 years old this year I am considering some similar size models from other manufactures. Worse yet, I looked at the Avaitor and it also has an awful dash design. At least that should be as nice as the BMW X7 since its in that price range. For some unknown reason when Ford redesigns a vehicle such as the Explorer they never seem to finish the job and fall short. I like my vehicle but those who review this car rank it below average and it should be the top choice if Ford did their job on an SUV this important.
    As a long time Ford car owner I am very disappointed in the lack of quality and interior design in Ford Vehicles. The quality has been going downhill and it seems every vehicle they make has a number of defects.
