2019 Ford Explorer Near Houston

The Iconic SUV Continues to Impress Houston-Area Drivers

The Ford Explorer has long been the SUV that defines the breed, with a proud reputation for providing busy families with the versatility, capability, and functionality that they need to make it through their busy days. With three rows of seats that accommodate seven people comfortably, the 2019 Ford Explorer continues the tradition. Read on to learn more about the 2019 model and all that it has to offer.


The Explorer features a muscular exterior that's accentuated by a noteworthy grille and LED headlights and taillights. Inside, the controls are placed within easy reach for the driver, while all surfaces have a rich feel and substance to them. If you don't need all seven seats, consider switching the second-row bench seat out for a pair of captain's chairs that recline and slide to provide easier third-row access and exit.

Sugar Land, TX families will appreciate the fact that the 21 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the third-row seats expands to 43.9 cubic feet when those seats are folded flat. Lowering both the second- and third-row seats gives you access to 81.7 cubic feet of storage room, and there's a storage area that's hidden under the cargo floor that gives you a secure space to store items you don't want exposed to prying eyes.


There are three available engines for the 2019 Ford Explorer, starting with a standard 3.5-liter V6 that generates 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. An available 2.3-liter EcoBoost® inline-four makes 280 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque, and delivers the best fuel economy of the three engines. Finally, Richmond, TX drivers who need more power at their disposal will want to take a look at the Explorer Sport and Platinum trims, which feature a standard 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 that manufactures a best-in-class 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque. Those Sport and Platinum models are equipped with standard all-wheel drive, which is available for the other trim levels.

Trim Levels

The 2019 Ford Explorer is offered in five trim levels:

  • The introductory Explorer comes loaded with such standard features as LED headlights and taillights, 18-inch wheels, an eight-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a rearview camera, Bluetooth® streaming, a USB port, and the SYNC® infotainment system that includes a 4.2-inch screen.
  • New for 2019, the Explorer XL trim takes the base model's features and adds a proximity key, push-button start, leather-wrapped steering wheel, an upgraded10-way power-adjustable driver's seat, a six-way power-adjustable front passenger's seat, rear parking sensors, and satellite radio.
  • Explorer Limited boasts an upgraded SYNC® 3 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system, as well as two 4.2-inch driver information displays, leather seating, heated and cooled front seats, dual-zone climate control, a 180-degree front parking camera, a 12-speaker Sony audio system, and a hands-free liftgate.
  • Explorer Sport comes with that upgraded engine, plus a sport-tuned suspension, an upgraded towing package, a terrain management system, and standard hill descent control.
  • Then there's the top-of-the-line Explorer Platinum trim, which features active safety technologies like adaptive cruise control, active park assist, forward collision warning with automatic braking, lane departure warning, blind spot monitoring, and rear cross traffic alert.


One safety feature we really like that comes standard on all 2019 Ford Explorer models is the Ford MyKey system. This lets Missouri City, TX parents set limits for both the SUV's speed and the audio system's volume when others are driving the vehicle, which helps drive home the safe driving lessons a teen driver has just mastered.
