Ford Explorer for SaleNow is a great time to check out a Ford Explorer for sale at our Naperville-area car dealership. River View Ford currently is offering special deals and incentives on the 2014 Ford Explorer. Come on by to learn more about this exception vehicle. Riverview Ford is located at 2200 US 30 in Oswego, not far from Naperville and Plainfield. In the meantime, here are some highlights of the most recent Ford crossover.

Spacious Family Car

The 2014 Ford Explorer offers three rows of seating, which is perfect for large families. Who says you have to get a minivan, anyway? The third row of seating works best for small children while adults can comfortably sit in the first two rows. If you don’t need to seat a full load, you can fold down the back two rows to open up 80 cubic feet of cargo space.

Performance and Fuel Economy

A big car needs a big engine and the Explorer delivers with a standard 3.5L V6 capable of 290 hp and 255 lb-ft of torque. If you need more power, there’s also a turbocharged version that puts out 365 hp and 360 lb-ft of torque. With either engine, you can tow up to 5000 pounds, making the Explorer great for moving a camper, boat, or a small trailer.

Some drivers, though, are looking to save on gas these days and the Explorer can be a fuel saver too. With the optional 2.0L turbo four-cylinder engine, the Explorer is rated at 20 mpg city and 28 mpg highway, which is best in class.

Safety Ratings

SUVs may have gotten a bad rap in the ‘90s in terms of safety, but the Ford Explorer is out to change that. The NHTSA gave the vehicle a perfect five-star score for overall crash protection. Likewise, the IIHS says the Explored scored exceptional in their roof, side, and moderate-overlap front crash tests.

Vehicle Features

You’ll have four Explorer trim levels to pick from when you come to River View Ford. Some of the technology highlights available include a configurable MyFord Touch interface, the smartphone SYNC system, navigation, a power liftgate, and power-folding rear seats. Families will certainly want to consider the rear entertainment system to keep the kids busy on long car trips.
