2017 Ford Explorer XLT

Having been situated in this area for over 100 years, we here at Ray Price Stroud Ford have a fairly good idea just what our customers need to navigate those Stroudsburg, East Stroudsburg, Easton, Nazareth and Lehigh Valley roads. 

Power, safety, and superior handling are an absolute must as is interior comfort. Fortunately, you'll find all of this and more in the 2017 Ford Explorer XLT. In this review, we'll show you how.

Ford Explorer XLT Specs

When it comes to the 2017 Ford Explorer XLT powertrain, extra emphasis seems to be placed on power. With the 3.5L V6 engine found under the hood, you'll easily be able to generate 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque.

With all that muscle, it's no wonder that the XLT towing capacity reaches up to 5,000 pounds. That's a lot of extra cargo, and you should have no problem managing that and more, particularly with the available intelligent all-wheel drive with terrain management system.

Of course, you don't want all that added power to compromise your efficiency. Luckily, you'll still be able to maintain 23 MPG highway and 16 MPG city.1 That Ford Explorer XLT MPG is nothing to balk at!

Staying Safe In Your Ford Explorer

If you're wondering just how safe the Ford Explorer truly is, you only really need to look to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA). Taking note of its incredibly rigid body and safety technologies, the NHTSA has awarded the Explorer a 5-Star Overall Safety Rating.

Naturally, structure plays a huge part in how this award is earned. Not only does the Explorer XLT come with the comprehensive Safety Canopy® system, it also has available inflatable rear outboard safety belts. These industry-first belts are excellent when it comes to protecting children.

Furthermore, you'll have plenty of safety tech in your Ford Explorer XLT, such as AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™ and the Traction control System. Both will enhance your handling and safety greatly.

Ford Explorer XLT Interior

If space is what you're looking for, then you'll certainly have plenty of it in the 2017 Ford Explorer XLT. With 151.5 cubic feet of passenger space total, as well as 21 cubic feet of cargo room, all seven passengers and their luggage should fit in without a problem.

Beyond space, you'll have numerous comforts to put you at ease, too, such as the available leather seats and dual-zone automatic climate control. A twin panel sunroof is also available, if you're looking to let in some fresh air. 

Lastly, you'll have plenty of entertainment thanks to the available SYNC® 3 suite. With SYNC® 3, you'll be afforded total mobile device integration, several music streaming options, and dynamic voice commands.
