As mid-size SUVs go, our automaker's flagship is a favorite. It has been one of the most sought-after by the American family, in fact, for almost three decades now. There's no shortage of reasons why, either. After all, if you know Ford Explorer, then you know it as a crossover that checks all the boxes for just about any trip. If you don't, however, take a look at the newest and latest in a storied line of model years, right here -- you'll see what we mean.

For one, it's highly capable, with three engine options to take you anywhere the open road calls, whether fuel-economically or backed by the thrill of raw power. One's a 290-horsepower, 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6, a fast accelerator that shells out 255 pound-feet of torque. Another's a 280-horsepower, 2.3-liter EcoBoost, with a workhorse 310 pound-feet -- the turning and pulling power you need to work the terrain. The third, however, is a best of both worlds: a 365-horsepower, 3.5-liter EcoBoost beast that churns 350 pound-feet and one sure to appeal to performance enthusiasts. Factor in an independent MacPherson strut front and multi-link rear suspension and Hill Start Assist, and you'll see it's also agile, responsive, and resourceful when the going gets tough.

2019 Ford Explorer is an Avid Adventurer for Northern Utah -- Discover It for Yourself at Ed Kenley Ford in Layton!

The 2019 Explorer is fuel-efficient by EPA-estimated standards. Its engines pair with a standard six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. That means, in FWD models, it can get up to 19 mpg in a city like Clearfield, 27 mpg across the highway locales like Ogden, UT, and 22 combined mpg between Kaysville and Syracuse, UT.

Further, it's exceptionally safe, with passive security features like AdvanceTrac with RSC (Roll Stability Control) and Curve Control as well as an advanced multi-airbag network and Safety Canopy and SOS Post-Crash Alert systems. Let's not forget technologically savvy, not to mention comfortably roomy for the whole gang, with split, fold-flat second- and third-row seating. It's even cargo-friendly, with up to 81.7 cubic feet of cargo space available with those seats collapsed and the ability to tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped with a Class III Trailer Tow Package.
