  • Class III Trailer Tow Package: Equip your Ford Explorer with this package for maximum towing capabilities. It is available with 2.3L EcoBoost® and 3.3L hybrid engines, but it comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost® engine.
  • AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™: AdvanceTrac® with RSC™ helps keep control in case of a wheel-slip, understeer, or oversteer. It also includes Curve Control, which decreases the Explorer’s speed when taking on tight turns.
