    Top Reasons to Drive a Ford Explorer

    Last updated 3 months ago

    The Ford Explorer is a no-compromise family SUV. With an available turbocharged engine, the Ford Explorer churns out impressive power in addition to class-leading highway fuel economy. Find out why else the Ford Explorer is worth a test drive by reading this article.

    Spacious Confines

    The Ford Explorer seats up to seven passengers, or up to 80.7 cubic feet of cargo with the third row of seats folded. To simplify the conversion process, the Ford Explorer comes with Power-Fold 3rd Row Seats. Fold the third row and the Ford Explorer will seat five passengers and 43.8 cubic feet of their cargo.

    Best-In-Class Fuel Economy

    The Ford Explorer’s turbocharged, direct-injection 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine produces 240 horsepower, ensuring strong acceleration. Fortunately, this performance does not come at the cost of efficiency, because the Ford Explorer earns best-in-class highway fuel economy rated at 28 mpg. To increase maximum towing from 2,000 pounds to 5,000 pounds, opt for the twin-turbocharged 365-hp 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine.

    Intelligent Traction

    While many SUVs boast their brawn, the Ford Explorer is proud to be an SUV with intellect to go along with its strength. With the available Intelligent 4WD System, the Ford Explorer optimizes traction in any driving condition by adjusting the powertrain and braking systems to reduce wheel spin. Intelligent 4WD comes with Hill Descent Control, which ensures that the vehicle travels at a preset speed when driving down a hill. Terrain Management System is also standard with Intelligent 4WD, a feature that lets the driver select between four different driving modes—Normal, Mud/Ruts, Sand, Grass/Gravel/Snow—to best match the vehicle’s settings to the terrain.

    Fuel Economy Myths and Facts

    Last updated 3 months ago

    If you are heading down to your car dealership soon, or you are finding your current vehicle to be underperforming in terms of mileage, you may be curious how to plan for maximum fuel efficiency. To help you separate fact from fiction, follow the basic rules outlined in this video.

    First, keep your use of your car’s air conditioning to a minimum. Using power means using gas, so the less power you use, the better your fuel economy will be. Also, ensuring that your tires are full of air is an important step in maximizing your mileage. Modern technology, such as what Ford installs in their vehicles, has rendered the old tactic of warming up your car in warm weather useless, so abandoning that tactic on cold mornings will not only get you to work on time but will also save you on gas.

    Inside the Advanced Technology behind Ford's EcoBoost Engines

    Last updated 4 months ago

    Ford EcoBoost engines are more efficient and powerful than many similarly sized, naturally aspirated engines for a number of reasons. The most obvious advantages that the Ford EcoBoost engines offer are turbocharging, direct fuel injection, and cam timing technologies, which work together to increase power and decrease fuel consumption.

    The fourth reason that EcoBoost engines have enjoyed such a high level of success is software and engine tuning. Ford has a number of patents on its innovative software control technologies, which predict the demand for power before the accelerator is pressed. For instance, if the Ford EcoBoost engine software detects an impending upshift, it will maintain boost pressure by sending a signal to the engine to close the throttle and leave the turbo wastegate closed.

    EcoBoost-equipped Fords are increasingly popular in the United States, with 89 percent of Ford Escapes and 53 percent of Ford Fusions being purchased with EcoBoost engines. Find out why EcoBoost engines are thrilling and efficient by coming to Precision Ford for a test drive in a new Ford today. Call us at (866) 849-1819 for more information about Ford EcoBoost engines, and visit our website to see our dealer’s inventory.
