For art cars, you go visit the "Garage Mahal" that is the Art Car Museum. For a car that's as focused on the drive as looks, you go with a Ford Explorer.

You know you're buying into a longstanding American legacy SUV with a used Ford Explorer, Ford's very first four-door SUV. A pre-owned vehicle is the perfect way to see for yourself why the midsize SUV has been so beloved over the years, from its practical features like massive cargo space and hands-free liftgate, to its high-performance turbocharged powertrain and, depending on the vehicle, four-wheel-drive (4WD) drivetrain for extra boosted off-roading prowess beyond all-wheel drive (AWD).

Ford Explorer FAQ

Is the Ford Explorer a reliable SUV?

Driving a pre-owned Ford should be a worry-free affair, especially with our dealership's vetting process and guarantee of quality. That's why you'll love a used Ford Explorer as much as the critics, among which U.S. News & World Report ranked the 2019 model year #20 in the category of 2019 Affordable Midsize SUVs. Their key highlights? Capable, powerful engines "that get the job done" and a comfortable ride. 

How much does a Ford Explorer cost?

Based on the year, trim level, and vehicle mileage, the pricing of a used Ford Explorer ranges between $14,000 and $35,000.

What should I look for when buying a used Ford Explorer?

Price is always the first thing to look at with pre-owned vehicle purchases, as that may be the main draw for most prospective drivers in buying a used car. That said, you'll also get a good idea from the pricing of a vehicle about its general condition and history. Two similar cars priced differently may also come with a difference in mileage; higher-priced cars may also come with no accidents and evidence of proper care in its past. With AutoNation, you get easy access to a VIN-based Carfax vehicle history report so there are no unexpected details.

Does the Ford Explorer have third-row seating?

Yes, all Ford Explorer trim levels come with third-row seats. 

What is the seating capacity in the Ford Explorer?

Thanks to third-row seats, you can enjoy seating for seven in Ford Explorer vehicles. 

What engine sizes are available in the Ford Explorer?

Powerful engine options for used Ford Explorers start with the Ford Explorer Base engine 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 that cranks out upwards of 300 horsepower @ 5,500 rpm. As you go up in trim levels and model years, you can find even mightier powertrains:

  • 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine for up to 400 horsepower 
  • Turbocharged 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine for up to 365 horsepower

With the Ford Limited Hybrid-the Ford Explorer's only hybrid powertrain option that debuted in the 2020 model year-you'll enjoy the 3.3L hybrid V6 engine with its 5,000-pound towing capacity.
