Town East Ford Previews the New Explorer


Unlike flannel shirts, big hair and shoulder pads, the Explorer has managed to transform with ever-changing trends. Over two decades after its introduction, the top-selling crossover still stands as a top choice among family SUVs, and with excellent crash test scores and an abundance of tech-savvy features, it's even considered one of today's most technologically advanced midsize SUVs. See for yourself what sets this utility vehicle apart from the others when you test drive the 2014 Ford Explorer in Mesquite, TX.


Come down to 18411 Lyndon B. Johnson (LBJ) Freeway and check out the SUV's premium cabin and high-tech features in person. When you visit, one of our knowledgeable sales associates will give you a grand tour of the Explorer's interior, as well as information about how to use features like SYNC, MyFord Touch and the voice-operated navigation system. For 2014, a few minor but important changes have been made, including the addition of standard automatic headlights on all models. Also this year, the Limited now has two new options, second-row heated seats and adaptive cruise control, while the performance-oriented Sport gets a new electric power-steering rack and larger brakes.


Under the hood, the Explorer Base, XLT and Limited come standard with a 290-hp V-6 that pumps out 255 pound-feet of torque.
