And because it was built for the active lifestyle, you can also expect an interior space that accommodates the kids, the dog, the sports equipment, camping gear and just about anything else you may need on the road to exploration.
The first thing you’ll notice about the 2022 Explorer SUV is its dynamic design, including adaptive LED headlamps and unique muscular-looking grille.

Available Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces, ambient lighting, a precision-engineered center console and rotary gear shift dial set you up for comfort.
Set the mood with seven colors of available ambient lighting for the first and second rows of seating.
Available adaptive headlamps help guide you through the darkness, adjusting with your vehicle. When you turn, the illumination turns with you, aiding in your visibility around corners and helping you react sooner to what’s around the bend. And with LED lighting in the front and rear, you get maximum light quality while using less energy. Standard on Ford Explorer Platinum and Platinum Hybrid models.
This unique, muscular-looking grille with satin aluminum finish was made exclusively for Ford Explorer Platinum models.
The 2022 Ford Explorer ST rounds out its athletic stance with unique ST badging and a bold grille. Inside, Explorer ST also offers unique leather micro-perforated seating surfaces, City Silver accent stitching and ST logo. The twin-turbocharged 3.0L EcoBoost® engine produces 400 HP, 415 lb.-ft. of torque* and a top speed of 143 MPH, proving it’s got power to go along with its style.
Enjoy the view while in the comfortable Ford Explorer ST leather seating surfaces with micro-perforation and accent stitching.
The unique ST badging lets everyone know that you drive a Ford Explorer that blends utility with driving performance.
Available third-row PowerFold® third-row seats make it easy to accommodate both passengers and cargo. With the seats up, the Ford Explorer can carry seven passengers. Or, fold them down and make room for cargo.
An available 10.1" LCD Capacitive Portrait Touchscreen offers connectivity at your fingertips. Use it just like your smartphone to queue up directions, play music, or call your friends and much more.
Multicontour seats with Active Motion® provide an added dose of comfort to the driver and front passenger. The Active Motion® seat cushion component offers five massage themes for an isolated back massage that focuses on either the upper or lower back. The combination of these amenities helps prevent fatigue so you can stay fresh on long drives.

Once selected, each one of these driving modes can modify the electronic stability control system and traction control system without your having to do anything.

With the available Intelligent Access key fob in your pocket or purse, just give a little kick under the rear bumper and the hands-free, foot-activated liftgate automatically opens — making it easier to load and unload cargo.

additional traction on your escapades, there’s available Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™ and seven selectable drive modes.
The standard Terrain Management System™ can help you tackle your adventures.

Plus, Hill Descent Control™ helps control braking and speed on steep grades. And with Intelligent 4WD, there’s also the added benefit of enhanced control on your daily commute, especially when conditions are rough.
As the backbone of the ST, King Ranch® and Platinum powertrains, the available 3.0L EcoBoost® engine takes the athletic feel of Explorer a step further. By using turbocharging and direct injection, the 2022 Ford Explorer generates 400 HP and 415 lb.-ft of torque thanks to Ford Performance engine tuning.
The 2022 Ford Explorer comes with RWD to maximize performance and design. Rear-wheel-drive architecture enables a sportier, more athletic design and improved on- and off-road capability when equipped with the Class IV trailer tow package.*
Building on AdvanceTrac™ with RSC™ (Roll Stability Control™), standard trailer sway control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to maintain trailer control.* The result is stability and control, even when towing large loads. The Class IV Trailer Tow Package is available with the 2.3L EcoBoost® engine and 3.3L hybrid engine and comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost® engine.*

2022 Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid
The Explorer Limited Hybrid is a no-compromise hybrid SUV
that’s engineered for big adventures. Not only is it the only hybrid in its class* that can
tow up to 5,000 pounds,** but it’s also fully off-road capable.
Post-Collision Braking, standard on all Explorer trim levels, can potentially lessen the severity of a secondary collision by automatically applying moderate brake pressure when an initial collision is detected in an attempt to slow down the vehicle and potentially lessen injuries to any passenger and damage to the vehicle.*
With increasing audio and visual warnings, Reverse Brake Assist helps alert you to any objects you might have missed while slowly backing up. The system can detect both stationary and moving objects, including people and vehicles behind you, and can even apply the brakes to help prevent a collision.*
Side-wind stabilization can help counteract heavy cross-wind conditions. The system keeps you from having to fight the wind and put in extra effort when overtaking large trucks, crossing a bridge or driving on the open road.*
The 10-speed transmission makes shifting gears a more efficient process, ensuring smooth upshifts and downshifts. Compared with a six-speed, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance, with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band.
Connected Technology For
A Commanding Drive
The 2022 Ford Explorer comes equipped with plenty of smart and capable features to prepare you for almost any adventure. For added assistance, Ford Explorer offers Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology, a lineup of available driver-assist features designed to enhance your driving experience. You’ll also find that staying connected is easy with features such as SYNC® 3 technology and FordPass Connect™ on your side.
Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology
With Auto High-Beam Headlamps, unlit roads, dark peripheries and other low-visibility situations don’t have to catch you off guard. Auto High-Beam Headlamps can sense poor lighting conditions and switch on to light your path ahead. They can even sense oncoming headlights and dim automatically so you don’t have to worry about blinding other drivers. As a result, you can keep your focus – and both hands on the wheel.*
Backing up made easier. The Rear View Camera provides a clear image of what’s behind your vehicle. It also comes with a built-in washer so you can keep the camera lens free of debris (like snow or dust) and navigate Reverse with greater confidence.*
BLIS® can help detect and alert you to vehicles in your blind spot, while Cross-Traffic Alert can detect traffic behind you when you’re slowly backing out of a parking spot or driveway.*
This feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians detected in your path. If an impact becomes imminent and you don’t take corrective action, the brakes can apply automatically. But don’t worry – they’ll only activate if they’re needed.*
Lane-Keeping System can help you stay in your lane, even during a moment of distraction. This smart feature scans your vehicle’s position between the lines in the road ahead and can alert you if you’re starting to edge out of your lane. Having trouble staying on track? After you’ve drifted a few times, you’ll see a coffee cup icon on the windshield, letting you know it’s time to take a break.*
Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) helps you keep pace on your journey and features Speed Sign Recognition that can slow down your vehicle if the traffic ahead has stopped or slowed. ACC with Stop-and-Go can even help you come to a complete stop. As soon as things clear, you’ll resume your set speed. And that’s not the only way it levels up your cruise control experience. The added Lane Centering feature scans lane markings to help you keep your vehicle centered between the lines.*
Staying connected from just about anywhere is easy because Ford and the available SYNC® 3 voice-activated technology system have teamed up with Amazon’s cloud-based voice service – Alexa. Ford+Alexa App brings the amazing capabilities of Amazon Alexa® from your home to the road.* By using the Ford+Alexa app for iPhone® and Android™ devices and connecting to SYNC® 3 AppLink®, you’ll have access to voice navigation, traffic information, Amazon Prime shopping and more. You can even control your supported smart-home devices while you keep your eyes on the road and your hands on the wheel.
Order a pizza, schedule a business meeting or even turn up the home thermostat while keeping your eyes on the road and your hands on the steering wheel. With its many available features and compatible apps, available SYNC® 3 makes it easy to do all those things and more. The SYNC® 3 system is our easy-to-use, voice-activated technology that also has a capacitive touchscreen. Its sleek, user-friendly interface helps SYNC® 3 deliver more than just the ability to make phone calls and play your favorite music – it’s also about making connectivity fast, smart and simple.*
A Cabin as Advanced as You Are
The 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line gives you the tools for seamless adventures. With the help of innovative technology, you can sit back and relax, staying connected with features such as the available SYNC® 3 and an in-vehicle Wi-Fi® hotspot.* The added benefit of an available wireless charging pad* gives you a reason to keep your phone on standby while you enjoy some time away in your personal sanctuary.
The available SYNC® 3 voice-activated technology system offers FordPass Connect™ with Wi-Fi® hotspot.* You can access Wi-Fi® connections through the SYNC® 3 touchscreen.* With it, you can manage your data usage through the FordPass™ App.* The 4G LTE Wi-Fi® hotspot powered by AT&T® allows up to 10 devices to connect so you and your passengers can stay in touch wherever the road takes you. Also, you can get out and stretch your legs because you’ll stay connected up to 50 feet from the vehicle. And you won’t have to turn your phone into a hotspot and burn through your data or your phone’s battery.
The available wireless charging pad can charge a smartphone without plugging it in.* Conveniently located inside the console or the armrest, depending on the vehicle, the wireless charging pad lets you charge a wide range of compatible devices. Simply place a smartphone on the pad, which automatically senses the type of device and starts charging it.
Enjoy the ride with the B&O® Sound System by Bang & Olufsen®. With this available 12-speaker system you can get off to an exciting start, appease a car full of kids or simply wind down with your favorite tunes at the end of a long day. If you want to turn it up a notch, there’s also the option of a booming 980-watt, 14-speaker system, available with the Premium Technology Package.
Available Active Park Assist 2.0 makes it easy to nail an impressive park, time after time – even in tight parallel or perpendicular spots. With the push of a button, this feature will detect an appropriate parking space and let you know when to stop and put the car in neutral. Once you’re there, all you have to do is hold the Active Park Assist button for the duration of the park and the system does the rest. This feature also offers park out assist with side-sensing capability so you can confidently navigate out of a spot when someone’s parked too close to you.*
