The highly anticipated 2025 Ford Explorer is set to hit dealerships in the second quarter of 2024, bringing with it a fresh look, innovative technology, and a simplified trim lineup. Priced at $41,220, the updated SUV aims to capture the hearts of both loyal Ford enthusiasts and newcomers alike. Let's delve into the key features and changes that make the 2025 Explorer a standout in its segment.

Interior Revolution

Interior Revolution

One of the most significant updates for the 2025 Explorer is its revamped interior, designed for simplicity and enhanced user experience. Ford has pushed the dashboard forward, creating more cabin space and a refreshed layout. The focal point is the 13.2-inch infotainment screen, now elevated on the dash with a convenient tray below it for holding smartphones, complete with a wireless charging pad. The addition of ribbed trim under the screen provides tactile cues for passengers.

The Explorer introduces Ford's new Digital Experience infotainment setup, boasting five times the processing power and 14 times the graphical capability of its predecessor. This system seamlessly integrates popular apps and services, with Google Assistant as the default voice assistant, and Alexa Built-In as an alternative. The inclusion of the Google Play app store allows users to access services like YouTube and Amazon Prime, even when the vehicle is parked.

In a move to keep users engaged without distractions, Ford's BlueCruise technology is integrated into the 2025 Explorer, offering advanced driver assistance features for a more relaxed driving experience.

Exterior Refinement

Exterior Refinement

On the exterior, Ford has given the Explorer a fresh face with updated styling and redesigned taillights. Each trim level boasts a unique grille, from the black mesh grille with chrome bars on the entry-level Active to the wing design finished in satin chrome on the Platinum. The ST-Line and ST models feature honeycomb grilles with a mesh insert, and the ST stands out further with its unique badge. The introduction of the Vapor Blue Metallic exterior paint option adds a touch of sophistication to the Active, ST-Line, and ST models. Ford has streamlined the Explorer lineup, reducing it from eight trims to four – Active, ST-Line, ST, and Platinum. The move simplifies the purchasing process for consumers, eliminating the XLT, Timberline, Limited, and King Ranch variants. Ford hints at a rugged version set to launch later, adding even more excitement to the Explorer lineup.

Powertrain Consistency

Powertrain Consistency

The powertrain lineup remains consistent with the previous model, featuring the Blue Oval’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine producing 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. This engine serves as the standard option for the Active, ST-Line, and Platinum trims. The full-fat ST model continues to sport the 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6, generating 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. A recalibrated 10-speed automatic gearbox and rear-wheel drive are standard across the range, with all-wheel drive available on every trim.

Enhanced Standard Features

Enhanced Standard Features

The 2025 Explorer comes loaded with standard features, including heated front seats, a 10-way power driver’s seat, wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, eight USB ports (two in the third row), three 12-volt ports, a power liftgate, Ford Co-Pilot 360, and LED headlights.

With a blend of sleek design, advanced technology, and a simplified trim lineup, the 2025 Ford Explorer is poised to make a significant impact in the SUV market. The starting price of $41,220 reflects the updates and improvements, making the Explorer an attractive option for consumers looking for a versatile and modern three-row SUV. Whether you're a tech enthusiast or an avid explorer, the 2025 Ford Explorer promises an exciting driving experience with its blend of innovation, comfort, and performance.
