Best Features of the 2019 Ford Explorer for Long-Distance Travel

2019 Ford Explorer Features

If you love long Sunday drives or road trips with the family, there’s no better way to do it than with a Ford Explorer. The 2019 Ford Explorer redesign offers so many great features to help make your journey fun, safe and, most of all, memorable. Take one of these SUVs for a test-drive today at Ernest McCarty Ford in Alabaster, Alabama.

  1. Flexible Seating/Cargo Space

Traveling with the whole family (and all their stuff) requires a lot of room. The Explorer offers spacious seven-passenger seating to ensure everyone feels comfortable. There’s also multiple powerpoints to charge devices, as well as several cup holders throughout the cabin. You can even choose an optional second-row console that’s perfect for storing snacks and games. When both back rows are up, 21 cu. ft. of cargo space remains for any bags or gear.

  1. FordPass App

With the FordPass app, you can search for parking and compare fuel prices while out on the road. You can also use it to set up Vehicle Health Alerts and service reminders to make sure everything’s good to go before you embark on an extended journey.

  1. SYNC 3

A long drive just isn’t complete without great music. Luckily, the Explorer’s equipped with available SYNC 3 technology, Bluetooth and Sirius XM Radio to provide all the entertainment you could need. You can also use the touchscreen to plan your route and get directions along the way.

  1. Adventure-Ready Technologies

The Explorer is built for adventure, so naturally it features an advanced driver-assistance suite. With help from these available features, you can log mile after mile with ease.

  • 180-degree camera that helps you see in front of your vehicle
  • Rain-sensing wipers
  • Lane Keeping System
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System)
  • Adaptive cruise control
  • Forward collision warning with brake support
  • And more…
  1. Towing and Trailer Sway Control

Bringing a trailer or boat along for the ride? No problem. When properly equipped, the 2019 Ford Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lb. And thanks to innovative trailer sway control and stability, you’ll be able to maneuver the SUV without worry.
