When it’s time for a new SUV, you’d do well to consider a midsize option as they provide extra seating and cargo space, making it a valuable commodity for most drivers. We find that folks with families especially end up loving the additional volume a midsize gives them for spacious seating. Even small families like them because it makes bringing along friends and extended relatives for trips easier, allowing them to travel without worrying about space. Yet, for all its extra room, the right midsize can still be nimble enough to get you around a city like Sacramento. The 2025 Ford Explorer is exactly that kind of midsize SUV.

Living in Sacramento or anywhere in the nearby area means you have to drive quite a bit, so you want to own a vehicle that you can rely on no matter the circumstances. Time and again, the Ford Explorer has proven to be such a ride. Here at Future Ford of Sacramento, we’ve seen plenty of customers go home with an Explorer only to return and tell us how owning one has been a life-changing development for them. Traveling is easier, journeys are more enjoyable, and they find themselves less stressed thanks to the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of safety systems. It’s time for you to take advantage of Ford’s innovation and get behind the wheel of a 2025 Ford Explorer as soon as possible.

When you buy a large SUV, you want to know it can handle rough roads, rough weather, and rough tasks. We know that California weather can be a doozy, so an SUV that promises great control is always a top priority for our drivers. We also know that California weather can damage our roads, which means even when the sun is shining, there could still be problems, such as potholes or cracks. So, you expect your midsize to be up to the task. Then, there’s the feeling that your SUV’s muscular exterior should match performance; if it looks like it can handle the off-roads, then shouldn’t it be able to? If you opt to buy the 2025 Ford Explorer, then all concerns will vanish. This is one capable vehicle, no matter the weather or location.

Standard 10-Speed Automatic Transmission

The Explorer comes with a 10-speed automatic transmission, which is great for control when the roads are in less-than-ideal condition. If you decide to do some towing with your Explorer, this transmission will make getting work done a heck of a lot easier. It’s always working overtime to adapt to conditions on the ground; it labors so you don’t have to.

Engine Options

The Explorer’s engines also give you a boost. The standard engine is far from standard: it’s a powerful turbocharged 2.3L engine that produces 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. The Explorer’s higher trims come with an even more aggressive engine: a turbocharged 3.0L V6 that grants you 400 hp and 410 lb-ft torque. These great numbers translate to fantastic acceleration and smooth rides, no matter the terrain. One reason families love the Explorer is they can take vacations out in the great outdoors knowing that their midsize SUV will be more than capable of handling dirt roads and rocky trails.

Towing Capacity

The great performance numbers are why your Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lbs. Plus, even with those pounds attached, you won’t have trouble accelerating, thanks to the horsepower and torque you have at your fingertips. Any concerns about being caught on a highway onramp can be resolved now that you own an Explorer. For anyone who hasn’t had the chance to drive one of these before, the first time behind the wheel will be an invigorating experience as you feel the full impact of its power.

The 2025 Ford Explorer aims to be as comfortable on the inside as it is aggressive on the outside. In fact, this year’s model comes with new interior color schemes so that you can have a more customized cabin. It now comes with softer fabrics, too, adding a gentle touch to the inside. The dashboard, which looks both sleek and futuristic, has been re-angled to provide both driver and front passenger with some additional room, meaning voyages will be cozier than ever before. Plenty of people will be able to enjoy the overall coziness of the Explorer, too, as this midsize SUV seats up to seven.

Cargo Volume

The rear of the Explorer offers 18.2 cu.ft. of cargo volume. That means there’s room for plenty of suitcases when your friends and family decide to vacation with you. However, if you want to use your SUV to transport equipment, furniture, or lots of supplies, you’ll be happy to know that you can lower the second and third rows to give yourself a lot more cargo volume. If you lower the third row, you have 47.9 cu.ft. of space. With both rear rows down, that almost doubles, giving you 87.8 cu.ft. For anyone who moves regularly, the Explorer can be a lifesaver.

Available Interior Enhancements

If you decide to opt for one of the Explorer’s higher trims, such as the ST or Platinum, you’ll have access to additional luxury features that will make trips in your SUV quite memorable for you and your passengers. From ambient lighting to multi-contour seats, the extra touches of comfort your Explorer affords will make certain that everyone likes riding with you best.

The 2025 Ford Explorer is one smart vehicle. Its technology makes your drives both safer and more enjoyable. A 13.2-inch touchscreen will be your home base for all your technological needs. You can customize it to display the apps you want, be they for fun or navigation, and sync it with your phone’s apps; that capability comes thanks to Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, which allow you to connect your device to the touchscreen. When you stream music via these apps, you’ll enjoy some astonishing sound thanks to the available 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen stereo system; you’ll feel like you have front-row seats to see your favorite rock band due to the crisp audio quality.


There’s some great tech that makes driving, even with a trailer, easier. Take the Explorer’s BlueCruise as an example of how this SUV tries to make life simpler for you: with this system enabled, your SUV can react to changes on the road in the moment while still in cruise control. If you’re going to be towing, you’ll love the Explorer’s multiple camera views that let you inspect your trailer without having to get out of your vehicle.

Ford Co-Pilot360

When it comes to safety, the Explorer cannot be beaten. Ford’s Co-Pilot360 suite of safety programs means that your Explorer is an adept partner in the driving experience, always keeping an eye out for trouble. It can brake if it senses an accident is imminent thanks to Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking; anyone who has been in an accident knows that an extra second of brake time can make a world of difference. The Lane Keeping System alerts you if you are veering out of your lane, while the Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert gives you a helping hand when you’re shifting lanes, letting you know about any obstacles outside your line of sight, which is double important when you’re towing.
