In Time for the Holidays: The Ford Explorer

If you’re staring into the upcoming holiday season like a deer in headlights, wondering if the old car can make it to Grandma’s another year, our team at Grogan Ford needs to talk to you!


The Ford Explorer has capabilities that abound, features that make driving anywhere fun, and safety features that will make everyone feel more secure!


The Ford Explorer goes beyond what you’d expect and provides a driving experience to remember! It has the capabilities you need to get wherever you want to go – Grandma’s and beyond. With eight models from which to choose, we have something for everyone.


Standard 4WD with Terrain Management System allows you to choose the driving mode that fits your circumstance. Choose from Normal. Trail, Deep Snow/Sand, Slippery, Sport, Tow/Haul, and Eco. Each comes with an avatar that displays on your 12.3-inch digital productivity screen.


Hill Descent Control boosts your confidence as you traverse down steep inclines. By controlling your braking and speed on steep grades, you’ll feel the power you need to tackle whatever lies ahead.


Our 10-Speed Transmission isn’t kidding about anything. Compared with a six-speed, you’ll experience enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band, plus smooth upshifts and downshifts.


With seating for seven, you’ve got ample room for all your most important people and all their most important gear! Fold the seats down for extra cargo space. You’ll find the room you need with some to spare. Ask about the Cargo Management System that provides unique and innovative cargo storage solutions!


We’ve packed in the technology you need to keep up with what’s happening, no matter how far you may roam! SYNC 3 and FordPass Connect deliver a high-tech experience. Smartphone connectivity allows you to access your contacts, playlists, and favorite apps with ease!


Leave those pesky charging cords at home. Our available wireless charging pad is more than convenient. It’s a must-have! Just lay your compatible device on the pad with the knowledge that you’ll have all the charge you need when you get where you’re going.


An available 360-Degree Camera gives you the view you need to be sure you’re in the clear. It’s especially helpful when you’re maneuvering into tight spaces or on trails. This system with split-view display uses four cameras to let you see all sides of the vehicle on your center screen.


If you have a moment of peace, let your Explorer be your sanctuary. With a great sound system from Bang & Olufsen, you can enhance your mood or change it with a sensory experience to be envied. Crank up your favorite hits on the way to work and dial down the classics to relax you before you walk back in the door.


Turn your vehicle into a 4G LTE Wi-Fi Hotspot that can accommodate up to 10 devices at one time for up to 50 feet outside the vehicle. You’ll never miss another call or text again!


Your safety is our priority. With our suite of driver-assist technologies onboard, your confidence behind the wheel will soar! Ford Co-Pilot360 Technologies were designed with you and your passengers in mind. Providing you with an extra set of “eyes,” these safety innovations make a difference in the way you feel about getting behind the wheel. Features include:


    • Blind Spot Information System. When a vehicle enters your blind spot, we alert you. Don’t take your eyes off the road for even a second. We’ll let you know when the coast is clear!


    • Lane-Keeping System. Even the most conscientious driver is distracted from time to time. If you veer out of your detected lane with this system, we’ll alert you to refocus on the road ahead. If you’re unable to center your vehicle, our system will guide you back.


    • Automatic High-Beam Headlamps. These headlamps detect ambient light and adjust your high and low beams accordingly. You’ll never blind oncoming traffic again and you’ll always have the light you need to see around dark corners.


These are only a small sampling of the many ways Ford keeps you safe on the road. Please ask your sales team to walk you through how all your safety features work before leaving the dealership. These are lifesaving technologies, so we want you to know all about them before you head out on the highway!
