The refined interior of the 2017 Ford Explorer is marked by high-grade materials and top-of-the-line technology. Carrying the new SYNC infotainment system and a wide array of pioneering safety upgrades, it’s a family-friendly model that’s able to ensure peace of mind just as easily as it excites the imagination, and you’ll find yours from River View Ford.

Connectivity and Entertainment Tech

A modern family SUV should put everything you need right at your fingertips. To that end, Ford has developed one of the most sophisticated infotainment systems in the segment. With the new SYNC 3 interface allowing easy control through voice-activated technology or 8-inch touchscreen, drivers will find every action easy to take.

When you want to sit back and soak up your drive, be sure to indulge in the available 12-speaker Sony sound system for uncommonly rich audio. A rear-seat entertainment system plays DVDs or game consoles to keep your kids happy.


It isn’t exactly rare for modern SUVs to come with GPS navigation, but the 2017 Ford Explorer sharpens its edge over the competition with 3D imaging and Sirius XM Traffic and Traffic Link. If you want up-to-date traffic information between Aurora and Plainfield or the weather in Naperville, look to your Ford Explorer. You can even get sports scores, gas prices, and movie theater listings.

Of course, the new Explorer proves notable for its convenience before you even climb inside, with an available hands-free liftgate making it easy to stow cargo when your hands are full.

Driver-Assistance Technology

The entire automotive industry is pushing to develop the latest driver-assistance safety technologies, but few manufacturers can seriously match Ford in this regard, and all it takes is a quick look at the 2017 Ford Explorer to see why.

It can provide:

  • Front 180-Degree Camera and Forward Sensing System
  • Lane Departure Warning with Lane Keep Assist
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Collision Warning with Brake Support
  • BLIS (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Enhanced Active Park Assist
