2017 Ford Explorer Madison WI

Ford has a knack for giving its vehicles appropriate names. The legendary company does not just randomly come up with something that sounds cool, but rather, affixes a name to a vehicle which matches its purpose or its contribution to the automotive industry. Such is the case for the 2017 Ford Explorer in Madison WI, which bears the name of someone who seeks out adventure and excitement in this magnificent world, taking in whatever it has to offer.

For 2017, the Ford Explorer has been given some of the most top-notch pieces of technology and an exquisite design worthy of everything inside. The Explorer is meant to take you places that are paved and unpaved, and its design reflects this. It has a standard roof rack so you can tie your kayak up top and head off to the river for some paddling, and plenty of room for your cargo. The vehicle stands boldly and confidently, assuring you that you’ll get to your destination safely.

The Explorer is capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds behind it when properly equipped. This kind of power comes from its standard 3.5-liter Ti-VCT engine, or the available 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine, which produces 365 horsepower more efficiently.
