2025 Ford Explorer SUV, Now With Available Hands-Free Driving

Ford has unveiled the redesigned 2025 Explorer SUV, packed with new technology features and a refreshed exterior and interior. The new Explorer starts at $41,220 and will arrive at dealerships in the second quarter of 2024.

The Explorer, America’s best-selling SUV, gets a major update for 2025 model year. The exterior styling is bolder, with a larger grille, sleek LED headlamps, and pronounced air curtains. There are new 18- to 21-inch wheel options across trim levels. Inside, Ford redesigned the cabin with softer materials, ambient lighting, a 13.2-inch touchscreen, and the new Ford Digital Experience infotainment system. 

For the first time, Explorer buyers can opt for Ford’s BlueCruise hands-free highway driving technology on higher trims. BlueCruise includes Lane Change Assist and In-Lane Repositioning to make long drives less stressful.

The 2025 Explorer continues to offer a choice of EcoBoost engines: a standard 2.3-liter producing 300 horsepower or an available twin-turbo 3.0-liter V6 with 400 horsepower. Rear-wheel drive comes standard, with all-wheel drive optional across the lineup.

Fuel economy ratings are not yet available for the redesigned SUV. The current 2024 Explorer with rear-wheel drive and 2.3-liter EcoBoost is EPA-rated at 21 mpg city, 28 highway, 24 combined.

Simplified for 2025, the Explorer series includes the luxury Platinum, performance ST, sporty ST-Line, and well-equipped Active. New tech and convenience features come standard on all models. Options like BlueCruise allow customers to customize their ideal Explorer.


Over the past three decades, the Ford Explorer has progressively added more refinements and technology to enhance comfort, performance, safety, and functionality, though the price has also gradually risen to match the upgrades. With each model year, Ford has made the Explorer more polished and luxurious but passed those improvements onto customers via higher MSRPs.
