The Ford Explorer


Discover the new Ford Explorer Midsize SUV near Madison, WI

Searching for the right family-friendly SUV can seem like somewhat of a monumental task. The bigger the vehicle, the more people you probably want to please - because chances are, you're not just shopping for yourself. Chances are if you're in the market for a midsize SUV, you're thinking about which SUV will fit your whole family - and maybe the family pet, too. That being said, you're not just looking for a practical SUV. You probably also are searching for something stylish and feature-laden. While you may require a vehicle of a certain class to accomplish all you need to do in and around Waunakee and beyond, that doesn't mean you have to be entirely self-sacrificial - at least not if you choose the Ford Explorer! Don't believe us? Allow us to let you in on some of the things that make this SUV stand out!

Interior Accommodations and Space

The Ford Explorer features one of the roomiest interiors of any midsize SUV on the market today. This Ford model boasts plenty of space for seven passengers, not to mention all of their stuff. That's thanks to a large cabin with over 150 cubic feet of passenger volume, plus an ample cargo area that offers over 20 cubic feet of storage - more than many midsize SUVs - or over 70 cubic feet with the second and third rows folded flat. It isn't just the amount of space that you'll love about the Explorer, though - the quality of the materials you'll find, the available technologies, like Ford SYNC® 3, and more make travelling in the Explorer a cut above traveling in the competition!

Engine Options

Another aspect of the Ford Explorer that we love here at Metro Ford of Madison, and think you will, too, is its generous lineup of available engines. The standard choice is a V6 that produces around 300-horsepower, but a 2.3-liter turbocharged four-cylinder engine is also available for the efficiency-minded here in the Cottage Grove, WI area. If you're concerned most about performance, you'll love the top-of-line 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged V6 engine that's also available.

Standard and Available Safety Features

A backup camera comes standard on all Ford Explorer models - but that's not all. Ford's MyKey system is also standard across the entire Explorer lineup. This innovative safety program allows you to set limits for other people who may be behind-the-wheel of your vehicle. Plus, if that weren't enough, you can also equip your Explorer with safety technologies like a 180-degree front parking camera, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and even inflatable safety belts for second-row outboard passengers.

Infotainment and Connectivity Technologies

Ford definitely didn't forget about technology when engineering the Explorer. This midsize SUV offers a ton of standard and available connectivity options that make it a fantastic choice for even the biggest technophile. While a 4.2-inch touchscreen infotainment system, featuring voice-activated commands is standard, a larger available Ford SYNC® 3 system offers niceties like an 8-inch touchscreen Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™, and more.
