The 2022 Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer, now in its sixth generation, has been a leader in the highly competitive midsize SUV category for decades. For the 2022 model year, this iconic SUV builds on its strengths, and the portfolio is expanding with two new ST options sure to excite performance-oriented drivers.

Fresh ST Models

Ford's performance model of the Explorer, the ST, is expected to account for nearly one-fifth of all Explorer sales in 2021, and an expanded lineup in 2022 will give customers even more choices. The Explorer ST previously came with a four-wheel-drive system, but Ford knows that not all SUV customers have the same driving needs. As a result, a rear-wheel-drive alternative will be added in 2022. A 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 and a 10-speed automatic transmission are standard, regardless of where power is delivered, and provide 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.

For drivers who appreciate the sport styling of the ST but have no need for high-performance power, the new ST-Line has black badging, upgraded wheels, and dual exhaust. It has a 2.3 liter 300 horsepower engine and standard suspension.

New Upgrades to the Platinum and King Ranch Models

A few more modifications to the Explorer lineup provide upgrades to the top trim levels. The King Ranch and Platinum versions now have a 400 horsepower engine and can be configured with either captain's chairs or a bench seat in the second row at no additional cost. A 10.1-inch touchscreen, multi-contour seats, and a 14-speaker B&O sound system are also now standard, and a handful of fresh exterior color choices complete the transformation.

Classic Design at an Affordable Price

The 2022 Ford Explorer is a three-row midsize crossover SUV that retains the exterior introduced with the 2020 model. With lots of seats, a large cargo area, and a smooth ride, it remains a trusted name among family SUVs. And, with a variety of turbocharged engines that offer up to 400 horsepower, you can build yours with as much power as you need.

The 2022 Ford Explorer has a starting price of $34,345. Lower trims are an excellent bargain for families seeking a modern SUV and still offer many comfort and technology features. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious, higher trim levels are set apart with exclusive interior materials and cutting-edge technology.

Creature Comforts and Style Abound

The cabin of the 2022 Explorer provides a window into the SUV's performance while surrounding you with the newest technology. Available features like a 12-speaker B&O® sound system, wireless charging pad, auto-dimming rearview mirror, and 360-degree camera make driving comfortable and fun.

Safety technology includes Evasive Steering Assist, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Stop and Go, and voice-activated navigation. These are all part of Ford Co-Pilot360TM Assist+ technology. Finally, to get where you're going on style, features like ActiveX-trimmed seats with Miko inserts, heated first-row seats, a heated sport-style steering wheel, and red accent stitching are available throughout the lineup and come standard on the ST-Line.
