Canadian 2025 Ford Explorer Fuel Economy Ratings Revealed

The refreshed 2025 Ford Explorer was just revealed this past February, and subsequently entered production at the Chicago Assembly plant last month. By now, we know just about everything there is to know about the newly updated 2025 Ford Explorer, though certain pieces of information continue to leak out. Now, that list includes Canadian fuel economy ratings for the refreshed model, too.

While we don’t yet have EPA fuel economy estimates for the 2025 Ford Explorer in the U.S., this data does give us some clues as to what we can expect in that regard. In Canada, the refreshed Explorer is rated to return 22.6 miles-per-gallon when equipped with the turbocharged 2.3L I-4 EcoBoost engine or 20.8 mpg with the twin turbocharged 3.0L V6 EcoBoost, while the high-performance ST delivers a slightly less 20.3 mpg combined. These figures are very close to the outgoing 2024 model’s EPA ratings of 23, 21, and 20 miles-per-gallon, respectively.

This isn’t terribly surprising given the fact that the 2025 Ford Explorer is mostly mechanically unchanged when compared to its predecessor, as most of its revisions come in terms of exterior and interior styling, as well as additional tech. Active Park Assist 2.0 has been dropped from the lineup – though it’s just the latest Blue Oval model to do so – while in some cases, the new Explorer is actually cheaper than the outgoing model. However, those interested in purchasing a 2025 Ford Explorer will have to wait a bit longer to do so, as it’s currently undergoing quality checks that could cause delivery delays, as Ford Authority reported last week.

    Isn’t the Explorer’s 2.3L EcoBoost engine the new MPC engine, similar to the Mustang EcoBoost?

    1. John C

      Why yes it is and is a much more efficient engine compared to the outgoing 2.3

  2. Cigna

    This vehicle like most Ford vehicles will be recalled soon after it goes on sale. The recall will likely involve a safety issue that will make this vehicle unsafe to drive. The wait for the fix will probably take 6 weeks or more plus a few weeks until the owner can get this vehicle into a dealership to have this safety issue fixed.
