2014 Ford Explorer Base 4dr FWD Overview
The Ford Explorer has long been one of the best-selling SUVs in the market. A capable tow vehicle and off-roader, it also offers the generous interior space, comfort features and safety technologies necessary for day-to-day tasks.
The 7-passenger Explorer is available in both front- and four-wheel drive configurations, with a choice of four trim levels: Base, XLT, Sport and Limited. A 290-hp 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine is standard on Base, XLT and Limited trims, with the Sport boasting a 365-hp 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6; both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode. The 4x4 models get a user-friendly terrain management system, while an efficient 237-hp 2.0-liter turbocharged Ecoboost four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection is available for FWD models. Explorer Base trims are well-equipped with 17-inch wheels, air conditioning, cruise control, MP3 capability and MyFord driver connect technology; XLT trims add 18-inch aluminum wheels, fog lamps and a reverse sensing system, along with a USB port, satellite radio and the SYNC communications and entertainment system. Sport trims are further outfitted with a sport suspension, 20-inch aluminum wheels, dual-zone automatic climate control, heated front seats, leather upholstery, HD radio and a rearview camera, while the Limited deletes the sport suspension but adds power-folding exterior mirrors, heated rear seats, a garage door opener and Intelligent Access with push-button start. Standard safety features consist of AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control function, traction control, anti-lock disc brakes and a tire pressure monitor, as well as Ford's MyKey owner control feature and seven airbags. Industry-first second-row inflatable seatbelts are available on XLT and Limited models, packaged with a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with cross-traffic alert; additional options include Lane Departure Warning & Lane Keep Assist, Active Park Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning.
The Ford Explorer carries over with minimal changes for 2014. Fully automatic headlamps are now standard on all trim levels, while rear heated seats are added to the Limited, and both the Limited and Sport trims get HD radio.
