New Ford Explorer for Sale in Madison, IN

Take Your Next Adventure in Style With the All-New Ford Explorer

When leaving the pavement to explore uncharted terrain beyond Madison, you need a rugged SUV that's both versatile and comfortable, so every drive is an enjoyable one. The latest edition of the Ford Explorer fits this description perfectly and surpasses expectations with an advanced four-wheel drive system and multiple performance options. Stunning technology can also be found throughout the vehicle, from its entertainment options to its safety features, making this SUV the perfect excuse to set out for adventures.


With an estimated 28 mpg on highways and three engines offering as much as 400 horsepower in the strongest, the Explorer is a rare find in that it combines fuel efficiency with performance. One of its engines is an eco-friendly 3.3-liter hybrid V6, and all are paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission that takes you from low to high speeds without skipping a beat.

While most models come with standard rear-wheel drive, Intelligent 4WD is also available and offers seven terrain modes to toggle through. Even this vehicle's towing strength is impressive, with a 5,600-pound tow rating offered with one of its engines, a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6.


The Explorer offers eight trim levels, and all have been designed with comfort and style in mind, with the base model offering a split-folding bench seat in the second row and a 4.2-inch productivity screen. The XLT trim expands on this with black mesh inserts and chrome bars outside, a larger 6.5-inch touchscreen, available underbody skid plates, and gray-painted 20-inch wheels.

Going with the Limited trim gets you power-folding side mirrors, 20-inch hand-polished aluminum wheels, and heated first- and second-row seats, but it's the off-road-ready Timberline trim that sports a pair of durable, orange-colored tow hooks in the front and all-terrain tires.

Platinum models have features like 21-inch wheels and two-tone perforated leather seats. At the same time, King Ranch Explorers are adorned with unique badging outside and opulent-looking brown leather upholstery throughout its interior. The sport-inspired ST-Line model offers stain-resistant ActiveX seating material and an exclusive Sport Mode button. In contrast, the ST model offers leather seats graced with silver stitching and the ST Logo.


Regarding its technology, the Explorer delivers everything from a 360-degree camera for off-road driving to a 12-speaker premium audio system. Listening to music while cruising around Bedford is easy with Android Auto and Apple AutoPlay wireless integration or by accessing satellite radio stations with the SYNC infotainment system.

The next time you or passengers forget a charging cable, they'll be relieved that you have a wireless charging pad for smartphones. You and everybody inside the vehicle within 50 feet can also connect your phone to the Internet using the available 4G LTE Wi-Fi hotspot feature.


To make every drive safer, there's the ever-useful Ford Co-Pilot360 system, a suite of hi-tech safety monitoring systems that includes BLIS, a blind spot warning system. For parking, there's Active Park Assist 2.0, an autonomous self-parking system that can steer the vehicle into tight parking spaces in North Vernon.

While Pre-Collision Assist is there to prevent collisions by monitoring for threats, if an impact does happen to occur, there's also a feature called Post-Collision Braking that can then apply brake pressure to prevent the vehicle from rolling.
