  • Interior

    The 2025 Ford Explorer has been redesigned inside, where drivers and passengers go to escape the outside world. Inside the new Explorer, you will find a cockpit of comfort where technology and convenience collide. From the moment you settle into the driver's seat, you're wrapped in comfort and refinement, all thanks to the new finishes that abound. Wrap-and-stitch soft-touch surfaces are an elegant way of saying comfort and style, adding a sleek aesthetic that also adds to the overall feel inside the cabin.

    Cabin Materials

    Each trim is distinct, given its own upscale interior with unique color schemes and finishes. The Active trim, which comes in as the base trim option for the Explorer, is bold and moody in all the right ways. The instrument panel is cloaked in Ultra Dark Space Gray with a contrasting accent stitching in Harvest Bronze on the door panels and console. The seats share the same striking color palette, with the seats adorned in a soft-touch Dark Gray fabric with Black Onyx dead center and the Harvest Bronze stitching to tie it all together. Excitement unfolds when you choose the Ford Explorer Active.

    The ST-Line trim chooses to do bold in a different way. Black Onyx is splashed throughout for a sleek feel, with red accent stitching to add a distinct contrast. The seats are covered in ActiveX material with cloth inserts, providing a durable and comfortable riding experience. ActiveX is a Ford exclusive, offering all the benefits of leather but without any animal products. The ST trim also uses the same finishes and color schemes except for the inserts on the seats, which are replaced with Miko suede for a slightly more luxurious feel.

    The High-End Platinum Trim Offers Unparalleled Luxury

    Last up is the Platinum with Mojave Dusk Leather throughout. Utilizing matching stitching, the Platinum interior is clean and creates a sense of Zen. For a light and airy version of the Platinum, the optional Salt Crystal Gray finish can be chosen instead, which even includes fun Tri-Diamond Micro-Perforated inserts that add a dynamic edge to the interior. The Explorer is available in so many great options it might be difficult to choose just one. Whichever one you do decide on, just know that comfort is guaranteed.

    Seating Options

    Three spacious rows of seating not only offer plentiful seating but are also spacious. Optional Captain's Chairs can replace the middle row, eliminating a seat but increasing comfort for long road trips or carpooling. Other amenities, such as heated seating and Multicontour Seats with Active Motion, are a few examples of why the Explorer is the top-selling SUV in America. Multicontour Seats with Active Motion use a revolutionary technology that creates a massaging effect in the chair, decreasing fatigue and increasing comfort.

  • Technology

    In today's digital age, staying connected on the go is more important than ever. That's why the 2025 Ford Explorer is equipped with tech that is changing how we drive. The Explorer is the first official Ford vehicle equipped with Ford Digital Experience. The program creates a more in-sync and seamless integration of technology and life.


    Drivers and passengers gain access to an assortment of compatibility options through Google, Amazon, Apple CarPlay, and Android Auto. Wireless Apple CarPlay and Android Auto allow for integration without all the wires and clutter. To access everything in the Ford Digital Experience arsenal, consumers have access to an expansive 13.2-inch touchscreen set within easy reach in the center stack. The suite of technology features also includes Google Assistant and Alexa Built-in, which lets your voice take control, eliminating the need for hands-on communication and commands.

    A Variety of Entertainment Options

    If that wasn't enough, the Ford Digital Experience takes things a step further by creating a fully comprehensive entertainment center. While on the go, Explorer occupants can enjoy everything from Spotify to Audible, making it a breeze to stream music and podcasts. If you are out on the town or traveling and need to take a break, then the Explorer has even more options to keep everyone entertained. When parked, a whole new array of options becomes available, such as YouTube and even video games on Google Play. Whether you are surfing the web or utilizing the built-in navigation system, the 2025 Ford Explorer has got you covered.

    Stay Connected Wherever You Go

    The technology doesn't stop there, and since we are in a technologically advanced age, it only makes sense that Ford would imbue the Explorer with so much. Amenities such as a wireless charging pad make for convenient charging on the go, along with USB ports throughout the cabin. Wi-Fi hotspot capabilities are another convenience that allows everyone to stream, play, and more.

  • Performance

    Performance is often associated with more than just how horsepower and torque translate to power; it is about how that power is balanced to create a machine capable of meeting our versatile needs. Finding the right combination of capability, efficiency, and reliability is what makes Ford one of the leading manufacturers of our time. Ford has created a masterpiece with the 2025 Explorer, finding a harmonious blend that has led to it becoming the top-selling SUV.

    The Standard Turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost Engine

    When choosing which Explorer trim is right for you, engine choice will probably play an important role in your decision process. The base engine is a 2.3L EcoBoost, producing 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The EcoBoost engine utilizes several types of technology to create a fuel-efficient and powerful output. The 2.3L EcoBoost comes standard on the Active, the ST-Line, and The Platinum trims, giving you access to reliable power that will get you the most out of your miles.

    The Available Turbocharged 3.0L EcoBoost V6 Engine

    The other engine option is the 3.0L EcoBoost V6, which comes standard on the ST and is an option on the Platinum. The V6 might be EcoBoost technology, but it puts an emphasis on power. Users can expect up to 400 hp and 415 lb-ft of torque, seriously upping your performance game. Both engine options are paired with a dynamic 10-speed transmission and rear-wheel drive. If you think you need a little bit more control on or off the road, consider switching things up to all-wheel drive which is available on all trims.

    Intelligent All-Wheel Drive

    The available Intelligent All-Wheel Drive technology monitors changing road conditions and uses that information to adjust how much power goes to each wheel to increase traction and, therefore, improve stability. With Ford's advanced all-wheel drive programming, navigating slick or icy roads or hitting the trails is safer than ever. The 2025 Ford Explorer has been enhanced to provide what you need, whether you are looking for an exhilarating ride or performance you can count on.
