When it comes to SUVs, the Ford Explorer is a true pioneer. The original Explorer was introduced in the early 1990s and quickly became one of the most popular SUVs on the market. Today, the Explorer is better than ever, thanks to a complete redesign for the 2023 model year. Here are eight standout features of the all-new Explorer:

1. Surface-Sensing 4WD

The all-new Explorer comes standard with Ford's latest all-wheel-drive system. This system constantly monitors the road surface and adjusts the power distribution to the wheels. This system is capable of delivering up to 100 percent of the engine's power to the rear wheels, which is ideal for off-road driving.

2. FordPass Remote Start

With FordPass Remote Start, you can start your SUV from anywhere in the world. This is a great feature to have during Ontario’s winter months and want to warm up your SUV before you get in it.

3. Sync 3
