The Explorer Platinum Hybrid model is the only hybrid in its class that can tow 5,000 pounds, and it’s also fully off-road capable.
Max towing varies based on cargo, vehicle configuration, accessories and number of passengers.
Towing and Trailer Sway Control
Building on Advance Trac with RSC® (Roll Stability ControlTM), standard Trailer Sway Control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to maintain trailer control. The result is stability and control, even when towing large loads. When properly equipped, the Ford Explorer can tow up to 5,600 lbs. The Class IV Trailer Tow Package is available with the 2.3L EcoBoost® and 3.3L Hybrid Engines and comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost Engine.
Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. It’s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.
Master of the Day-to-Day
When you have to get things done, Explorer has your back. Available seating for up to seven means you can get your star player and friends to practice. The E-Z Entry second-row seats and available Cargo Management System make it easy to get passengers and their equipment in as quickly as possible.
Cargo and load capacity limited by weight and weight distribution.
