Connected Technology For A Commanding Drive

Active Park Assist 2.0

Available Active Park Assist 2.0 makes it easy to nail an impressive park, time after time – even in tight parallel or perpendicular spots. With the push of a button, this feature will detect an appropriate parking space and let you know when to stop and put the car in neutral. Once you’re there, all you have to do is hold the Active Park Assist button for the duration of the park and the system does the rest. This feature also offers park out assist with side-sensing capability so you can confidently navigate out of a spot when someone’s parked too close to you.

A Cabin as Advanced as You Are

The 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line gives you the tools for seamless adventures. With the help of innovative technology, you can sit back and relax, staying connected with features such as the available SYNC® 3 and an in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot. The added benefit of an available wireless charging pad* gives you a reason to keep your phone on standby while you enjoy some time away in your personal sanctuary.

Maximize Your Journey

360-Degree Camera

The available 360-Degree Camera with split-view display uses four cameras (one in the grille, liftgate and under each of the sideview mirrors), enabling you to see all sides of the vehicle on the center screen. It’s especially useful when maneuvering in tight spaces or on trails.

Pack It Up

Explorer delivers when you need configurable cargo space. With the second-and third-row seats in the upright position, you have maximum seating plus enough cargo space to haul the essentials. * If you need more room, the Explorer provides up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first-row seat.
