The new Ford Explorer is here at Nelson Ford and this popular full-size SUV has room for the whole family. In addition to its spacious interior, you have the technology, performance and features needed for your next adventure around Wahpeton and beyond.


The new Ford Explorer is powered by the 2.3-liter EcoBoost® I4 engine that's both direct injected and turbocharged to provide you with up to 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. The standard rear-wheel drive provides the Explorer with a sporty design along with improved towing and off-road capability. For those wanting more performance for their Detroit Lakes drives, there's the 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine that's twin-turbocharged for an impressive 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.

There's also a hybrid option available with the 3.3-liter hybrid V6 engine that offers up to 318 horsepower and 322 pound-feet of torque. Each of these engine options are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and you can get up to 5,600 pounds of towing capability depending on the engine options.


Inside you have room for up to seven passengers with three-rows of seats. Depending on the model, you can get features like Active Motion that provides you with five different massage modes to help you refresh after a long trip. You can get options like tri-diamond perforated leather seats and there's a space-saving rotary gear shift dial to provide you with even more storage options.

With the new Ford Explorer, Fargo drivers can get up to a 10.1-inch portrait-orientated touchscreen to connect your smartphone, get directions, play music and handle calls hands-free. You've got plenty of room for cargo and passengers and there's an optional PowerFold third row that can make it easy to switch between cargo and passengers as needed.


When it comes to the design of the new Ford Explorer, you have a dynamic and sporty SUV with a muscular grille. The Explorer is equipped with available adaptive LED headlights that adjust with your steering for improved visibility at night. You can customize the look of the Explorer further with unique grilles and wheels depending on the trim.
