The 2013 Ford Explorer is the most efficient and upscale Explorer to date and has become one of the most technologically advanced large crossover SUVs available, with dynamic qualities and a quiet cabin that would rivals those of many luxury-brand models.

In the 2011 redesign, Ford changed the Explorer’s underlying architecture, to create more usable interior space. This design brings with it a weight reduction, which results in better fuel efficiency and handling. The 2013 Explorer comes standard with a 290-horsepower V6, but Ford also offers a turbocharged EcoBoost four-cylinder engine as an option.

Stop by Scottsdale Ford and check out the impressive cabin, in which the Explorer offers a stylish, well-finished space for up to seven passengers. There are a lot of advanced features, too, including the voice-activated Sync system, the touchscreen-based MyFord Touch and many safety features, including second-row seatbelt airbags, adaptive cruise control with collision warning and a lane-departure warning and lane-keeping assist.

Other safety features include traction and trailer sway control, front side airbags, side curtain airbags, a front passenger knee airbag and MyKey, which allows parents to specify limits for vehicle speed and stereo volume. The Explorer’s included stability control system is equipped with Ford’s Curve Control, which can monitor speed carried into a corner and decelerate if necessary.

Standard equipment includes a V6 engine, 17-inch steel wheels, privacy glass, integrated blind spot mirrors, roof rails, cruise control, air-conditioning, a six-way power driver seat (manual recline), a tilt-and-telescoping steering wheel, a trip computer and a six-speaker sound system with a CD player and an auxiliary audio jack. Also standard in the 2013 Ford Explorer is a 3.5-liter V6 that produces 290 hp and 255 pound-feet of torque.

According to Edmunds, the 2013 Explorer received five out of five stars for overall crash protection, with five stars for overall frontal protection and five stars for overall side protection in government crash tests. In Insurance Institute for Highway Safety testing, the Explorer earned a top rating of “Good” for its performance in frontal-offset, side-impact and roof-strength tests.
