Interior & Technology

Inside, the Ford Explorer has plenty of space across three rows of seating. You can even get to the third row easily with the press of a button that will move second-row seats (bench or captain's chairs) out of the way for easy access. There also is plenty of cargo space onboard too. Behind the third row, there are 18.2 cubic feet, but you can fold that down to get up to 47.9 cubic feet while folding all the rear seats nets you 87.8 cubic feet of space which is more than enough room for luggage, shopping items, camping, and adventure gear and much more.

The latest technology is also available onboard the new Ford Explorer as you can find standard touch display options with an eight-inch choice or a larger, vertical one. You can connect with ease to Android Auto™ and Apple CarPlay® plus there are also Wi-Fi plans, and even available rear-seat entertainment choices too.


Like all new Ford vehicles, the safety features on the 2023 Ford Explorer are here to keep you confident on the road. This includes the likes of forward collision warning and lane departure warning as well as BLIS® with cross-traffic alert for blind spots standard, with optional features like adaptive cruise control onboard too. Having these alerts, especially while in city driving situations where you have to stop and start, change lanes and move around comes in handy.
