Choose From Three Engines

Depending on how much power you want from your 2019 Ford Explorer, you can select one of three great engines: the 3.5L EcoBoost® engine, the 2.3L EcoBoost® engine, and the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 engine.

3.5L EcoBoost® Engine

This V6 engine blends turbocharging with direct injection to bring you best-in-class 360 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. You will find this engine as a standard feature of the 2019 Ford Explorer Sport and the 2019 Ford Explorer Platinum trim levels.

2.3L EcoBoost Engine

While smaller than the 3.5L engine, this engine still offers you plenty of muscle. It is able to generate 280 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The 2.3L EcoBoost® engine can be customized to have 4WD and a Class II Trailer Tow Package.

3.5L Ti-VCT V5 Engine

Featuring twin independent variable camshaft timing, this sturdy engine is able to provide you with 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. It also has variable control of your valve cam timing, which will optimize the performance of your engine regardless of its current output or current driving conditions.

Intelligent 4-Wheel-Drive With Terrain Management System™

The coupling of the Terrain Management System™ and the available Intelligent 4-Wheel-Drive system lets you instantly shift between driving modes to adapt to the current terrain. You will be able to charge through mud, grey-lightest, and gravel thanks to the pairing of these two incredible systems. Here at J.C. Lewis Ford Savannah, your local Savannah car dealership, we will go over how these features work in unison to enhance the way you travel.

Normal Mode

This feature is there to make your everyday drives easier. It contains a hill descent control feature that will help you monitor your speed whenever you are traveling on a steep decline.

Mud / Rut Mode

This mode is ready for whenever you want to take your adventure off the road and explore the great outdoors. It gives you optimized powertrain torque that reduces the upshifts of your transmission and lets your wheels continue spinning through sticky or bumpy terrain.

Sand Mode

If you are heading out on some desert dunes or traversing along the beach, be sure to activate this mode for your 2019 Ford Explorer. When you do, you will notice a more aggressive progression of your throttle that lets you hold onto your gear longer, enhancing the amount of torque being sent to your wheels.

Gravel / Grass Mode

This mode brings you earlier upshifts and more passive distribution of your engine torque, limiting any wheel-slip and improving your overall traction.
