Exploring a Pre-Owned Ford Explorer for Sale

A used Ford Explorer for sale can help you tackle your family's busy schedule. This midsize SUV offers seating for up to seven people, great traction, advanced safety features, and ergonomically designed seats to help your back. Interested in going off-road? It has trims made especially for that. Interested in exploring electrification? There are hybrid versions. In short, this is a vehicle that's as adaptable as you often have to be.

How Big Is a Ford Explorer?

The 2022 version of this SUV is 198.8 inches long and 89.3 inches wide if you include its mirrors. Some trims are 69.9 inches tall, while others are 70.7 inches tall due to differences in ground clearance. (For anyone wanting an adventurous off-roader, a Timberline trim is the way to go.) This gives those in the front row 43 inches of legroom, those in the second row 39 inches, and those in the third row 32.2 inches. Its headroom depends on whether you opt for a trim with a moonroof or not and is either 40.7 or 38.9 inches for the front row.

With all the seats in use, you can fill the 18.2 cubic-foot cargo area with groceries or medium-sized suitcases. If you need more room than that, the third row folds down to give you 47.9 cubic feet. The second row folds down, too, potentially increasing your cargo room to 87.8 cubic feet.

While not all used versions will have these exact dimensions, this should give you an idea of what can fit inside this versatile ride.

What Performance Can You Expect From a Used Ford Explorer in Indianapolis?

  • A 290-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6
  • A 365-horsepower 3.5-liter V-6 EcoBoost
  • A 300-horsepower 2.3-liter Ecoboost
  • A 365- or 400-horsepower twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 (depending on tuning)

What Features Can Be Found in a Pre-Owned Ford Explorer?

Just like this vehicle has worn many powertrains over the years, it has also come in several different trims, influencing its styling, amenities, and technology. For example, you might find a used Ford Explorer XLT from 2019 with dual-zone climate control, a reverse sensing system for parking, a six-speaker audio system, trailer sway control, roll stability control, and LED signature lighting.

This was considered one of the more basic trim levels from that year, right above the entry-level trim. However, if you discover a used Ford Explorer Limited from that same year, you'll get a 12-speaker premium audio system, leather upholstery, heated seats, and a heated steering wheel. A 50/50-split power-folding third row can also make it easier to expand your cargo area.

What is the best Ford Explorer trim to buy used?

If you're looking for a luxurious trim, a used Platinum model is likely to suit your tastes. However, pre-owned Limited models can be a good balance between luxurious amenities and money-saving value. For something dependable that doesn't go overboard on extras, consider a base or XLT trim, which will likely be more competitively priced. Our team can show you our options.

What is a good mileage for a used Ford Explorer?

A Ford Explorer can last up to 200,000 miles or more if it is well-maintained, so if you find a used version with 80,000 miles or fewer under its belt or that's only had one previous owner, it can be a solid investment. However, make sure to review its vehicle records carefully and buy from a dealer you trust that will be transparent about its quality.
