2023 Ford Explorer Exterior

What's New for the 2023 Ford Explorer?

The 2023 Ford Explorer is a classic Ford SUV and one that's solidly among the most popular models in America. It always gets a spacious interior, enhanced technology, and leather-appointed seating options, but this year the options are moving to standard on many trims. There's more standard equipment for every trim of Explorer this year.

What Are the 2023 Explorer Trims & Features?

The newly redesigned Ford Explorer comes in eight bold trim options: Base, XLT, ST-Line, Timberline, Limited, ST, King Ranch, and Platinum. There's something exciting on every one of these trims, but taken together, they present to you the most complete Ford Explorer in history. This one rides prettier and with higher performance than any model before it. Our favorite feature for each trim includes:

  • Terrain management (Available on the base and beyond)
  • ActiveX Seating (XLT)
  • B&O premium sound system (ST-Line)
  • Dark Carbonized Gray grille (Timberline only)
  • 5,000-pound towing capacity (Limited)
  • City Silver accent stitching (ST)
  • Del Rio leather with Lasso-perforated inserts (King Ranch)
  • Twin-panel moonroof (Platinum)

What Safety Features Does the 2023 Explorer Include?

Safety is a way of life for the Ford Explorer. Its Co-Pilot360 features are just the beginning of everything that keeps you safe on an Explorer. You'll always have features like lane departure alert and mitigation, BLIS blind spot monitoring, and Surround View camera systems to keep you alert to your surroundings. Evasive Steering Assist is another new feature that gives the Explorer the power to actually steer you away from danger. This model gets smarter every year.
