2019 Ford Explorer Specs, Release Dates, Prices

The country’s best-selling three-row SUV makes more technology available to more drivers for 2019.

Ford Safe and Smart Package – a suite of driver-assist features including Adaptive Cruise Control, forward collision warning with brake support and Lane-Keeping System – is standard for Platinum and available on XLT, Limited and Explorer Sport. Blind Spot Information System is no longer part of the Ford Safe and Smart Package, but is standard on XLT, Limited, Sport and Platinum models. XLT technology feature bundle includes voice-activated touch screen navigation with pinch-to-zoom capability, SiriusXM Traffic and Travel Link and a universal garage door opener. Also new for 2019 is an XLT Appearance Package called Desert Copper that includes 20-inch polished aluminum wheels, chrome mirror caps, Ebony Black door trim panels with unique inserts, first- and second-row Ebony Black leather-trimmed seats with unique inserts and third-row Ebony Black vinyl seats with unique stitching. Available new Limited Luxury Package features 20-inch premium painted machined aluminum wheels, chrome mirror caps, door trim and leather inserts, multicontour front seats with Active Motion, Nirvana leather seats with micro-perforation and a leather steering wheel.

Other changes include standard paddle shifters on 209 Ford Explorer Sport and Platinum. Heated second-row seats are available for Explorer Sport. A molded-in-color black rear bumper is standard across the range, while power and heated side mirrors are standard on base and XLT models. LED fog lamps are standard on Explorer Limited, Sport and Platinum models and available on XLT. A power liftgate is standard on XLT. All other content – including available intelligent four-wheel drive with Terrain Management System and Hill Descent Control – is carryover.
