Get Ready For Adventure

You’ve chosen the 2022 Ford Explorer because it gives you the ability to take on grand adventures. Let the experts at Spitzer Ford DuBois give you the low-down on the Ford Explorer towing capacity and Ford Explorer payload capacity to help you plan for your next journey.

With three rows of seats that accommodate up to seven people and a satisfying fuel economy—an EPA-estimated up to 20 city/28 hwy mpg—the 2022 Explorer is a great adventure vehicle. The Explorer lineup has eight trim levels to give drivers a wide range of options for standard and available features that fit their needs.

We Have A 2022 Explorer For You

The first six trims—Explorer, XLT, ST-Line, Timberline, Limited, and Explorer ST—offer plenty of power with a standard 300 horsepower 2.3L EcoBoost Engine, a 10-Speed Automatic transmission, and a rear-wheel drivetrain. They’re also equipped with Ford’s Trailer Sway Control feature for safer highway towing.

The Explorer King Ranch and Platinum are outfitted with a more powerful twin-turbo 3.0L V-6 engine paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear-wheel drive for a turbocharged 400 horsepower, 415 lb-ft of torque, and a top speed of 143 mph.

Boost Your Explorer’s Capability

Options on all Explorers add more layers of capability. Ford’s Intelligent 4WD system optimizes the powertrain and braking system to better suit difficult driving conditions.

Hill Descent Control is Ford’s cruise control system that uses traction control and the anti-lock braking system to continually adjust braking pressure to maintain the preset speed and help control slippage while driving down a steep grade.

The Terrain Management System is available with both 2WD and 4WD vehicles to give drivers seven Drive Modes—Normal, Trail, Deep Snow/Sand, Slippery, Sport, Tow/Haul, and Eco—all easily changeable with the twist of a dial located in the center console.

All The Power And Capability You Need

Just because you’re driving a midsize SUV, you don’t have to curb your enthusiasm. Take what you need and what you want when you’re driving the 2022 Explorer. The available Class IV Trailer Tow Package gives you the ability to take it all with trailer connections and a Class IV frame-mounted hitch.

When combined with the Trailer Tow Package, the 2.3L Explorer engine gives you a maximum towing capacity of 5,300 lbs. and the 3.0L turbocharged engine boosts your capacity up to 5,600 lbs.—more than enough to bring along your trailer, boat, ATV, or anything else you’d like.
