New Ford Explorer Features for the 2017 Generation

For the 2017 generation, the Ford Explorer grew a little bit, standing with a longer wheelbase of 113-inches, which is the largest Explorer yet. Pack those extra inches with cargo, gear, bikes, tents, or whatever else gets you moving and head out to seize the day. For those who prefer a more athletically styled SUV, there’s a new Sport Appearance package available that will bring a sense of sport and athleticism to the exterior of the Explorer with features like 20-inch wheels and blacked-out exterior accents. On the inside, 2017 graced the Explorer lineup with an available dual-panel moonroof, so you can open up and let the sunshine trickle in as you make the most of our little town of Jasper.

Features That Will Appeal to Jasper Area Families

Here are some of the standard and available features Jasper families are sure to appreciate:

  • Standard Ford SYNC® infotainment system keeps the tunes rolling and all the members of the family happy, and with the available Voice-Activated Navigation System, it’ll keep you right on track, too.
