The 2013 Ford Explorer is set to debut with best-in-class fuel economy, thanks to Ford’s revolutionary EcoBoost technology.
Powered by a 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, the 2013 Explorer returns 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway, which ranks it 3 mpg city and 2 mpg highway better than its nearest competitor. Don’t think that best-in-segment fuel rankings take away from performance, because that is the beauty of EcoBoost technology.
The 2013 Explorer’s EcoBoost engine generates 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque, enough power to tackle any job. The seven-passenger Explorer also boasts a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission with paddle shifters for increased driving dynamics and control.
Ford also delivers drivers with the technology they crave in the 2013 Explorer. The 2013 Ford Explorer is equipped with SYNC with MyFord Touch which allows the driver to control just about everything in the vehicle with just the sound of their voice. From making phone calls and selecting music to controlling the climate of the vehicle, this Explorer listens and delivers.
The 2013 Ford Explorer will also be available with other new technologies including, active park assist to aid in parallel parking, a Sony Premium Audio System with HD Radio and advanced navigation.
