2013 Ford Explorer - Best-In-Class Highway
Fuel Economy. And More.
- Dread the thought of having to parallel park your vehicle on Main
Street? Fear no more. Your Explorer is equipped with Active Park Assist.
Simply push a button and activate your turn signal; Active Park Assist
searches for available parking spaces. Once a spot is located, your
Explorer parallel parks with just a few simple steps on your part.
- Available perforated, leather-trimmed, heated and cooled front bucket
seats deliver four-season comfort for you and your passenger. The seats
are included in the available Luxury Seating Package in Limited models
and feature 10-way power with power lumbar and recline. The driver's
side seat has memory feature for two drivers. Also included in the Luxury
Seating Package is the PowerFold third-row seat that can fold flat for
convenient storage, simply at the touch of a button.
- The available rear view camera provides a video image of the area
behind your vehicle on the available MyFord Touch eight-inch center
screen if equipped. It includes guides that let you align your vehicle
with a trailer you want to tow. This can help when hooking up a trailer.
- Ford offers cutting-edge technology in the available BLISâ?¢
(Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert to help make
driving more convenient. BLIS is designed to use radar in the rear quarter
panels to identify if a vehicle has entered the defined blind spot zone
and the system can alert you with a warning light in the appropriate
side view mirror. Cross-Traffic Alert is designed to use radar to watch
for traffic behind you when youâ??re slowly backing out of a parking
spot or your driveway. If it detects vehicles approaching from up to
15 yards away it sends an audible warning, a visual display in the corresponding
mirror and a signal in the message center.
- The optional Terrain Management Systemâ?¢ allows you to
easily shift on the fly into one of four settings to match the terrain
youâ??re driving on: Normal - biases torque to the front wheels
and sends it to the rear only as needed. Mud/Ruts - switches the throttle
to a more aggressive mode, limits upshifting and desensitizes stability
control, allowing the tires to spin as needed. Sand - the throttle throws
maximum torque to the wheels, placing the transmission in lower gears
for as long as possible, which allows the wheels to spin aggressively.
Grass/Gravel/Snow - places the throttle in a setting to minimize wheel
The available Collision Warning with Brake Support utilizes a sensor
that scans ahead and detects slower moving traffic. It flashes a warning
that appears in your windshield and emits an audible alert if it detects
a collision is imminent and pre-charges the brakes for faster response.
