Going back more than 30 years, drivers in Florida have had a love affair with the Ford Explorer. America’s bestselling SUV of all time has an appetite for adventure, helping folks in Orlando and around the country take part in memorable adventures. Whether you’re looking ahead to your next well-deserved vacation or on the hunt for a reliable SUV for the family, the 2023 Ford Explorer is a can’t-miss vehicle that you can find at Sun State Ford.
Rugged and ready
A big part of the reputation that precedes the Ford Explorer is its ability to help you enjoy the ride. For 2023, the Explorer maintains as one of the most fun-to-drive three-row SUVs around thanks to its impressive engineering, versatile powertrain lineup, and available intelligent four-wheel drive.
The new Explorer rides on an advanced rear-wheel-drive platform that ensures smooth handling and maneuverability, belying its imposing size and lining up perfectly with its athletic silhouette. It also ensures that you get the most joy out of the standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost®, which comes in hot with 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. If you want to put that power to the test around Florida, the Explorer Timberline takes full advantage with 8.66 inches of ground clearance, all-terrain tires, and the Terrain Management System™.
Want even more thrills per mile? The 2023 Ford Explorer ST is an absolute juggernaut of joy, serving up 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque with its standard 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6. With the Class IV Trailer Tow Package, this powerhouse offers max towing up to 5,600 pounds, great for pulling a boat or camper out to your favorite getaway spot.
Three rows, endless possibilities
The 2023 Ford Explorer is a great option to turn to whether you’re flying solo for the time being, growing a family here in Florida, or already have quite a large crew. With three rows and seating for up to seven people, the Explorer is as flexible as you are.
Need space for that new futon? Just fold the second and third rows flat, and you have up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space to play with. Making the most of that space is easier, too, thanks to available features like a PowerFold® third-row seat, hands-free liftgate, and Cargo Management System.
But comfort and style are every bit as important, which is why Ford offers features like Active Motion® front seats with five massage settings and a gorgeous twin-panel moonroof. With options like the King Ranch, Platinum, and Limited, the 2023 Ford Explorer hits closer to a high-end luxury SUV with supple leather interiors, genuine wood and aluminum accents, and decadent colors.
Advanced technologies for the everyday
The Explorer is one of the cornerstone vehicles under the Blue Oval banner, and that’s why Ford offers it up with a wide range of must-have technologies. To ensure that you get confidence from more than its sleek, sporty exterior, the 2023 Ford Explorer comes with Ford Co-Pilot360™ driver-assist technologies that help keep you safer on the road. With options like Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert and Adaptive Cruise Control, you’ll feel more reassured the next time you hit the I-4 for a road trip.
Along the way, you’ll be able to stay informed, connected, and entertained with SYNC® 3. This smart infotainment platform simplifies your experience with features like Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™, Ford + Alexa, and Waze integration.
