Pros and Cons

Some of the things to like about the new 2025 Ford Explorer is the fact that it offers spacious cabin. The Explorer, as mentioned before, has been known as a spacious ride, but you will feel a significant spaciousness with the new Explorer. You will notice that the interior cabin offers lots of rooms to move conveniently and comfortably.

Moreover, the new Explorer comes with a hybrid option, which means that you can enjoy electrified version if you want to. And you don’t have to compromise power or performance at all. The three row ride is expected to run with V6 twin turbo unit that is able to generate 400 hp. This is such a convenient offer, isn’t it?

But on the downsides, there are some unfavorable things to be prepared for. First of all, the materials for interior cabin somewhat feels cheap. It’s not too lame, but still….Ford should be able to deliver better quality. Moreover, the fuel economy isn’t very impressive. And you need to be ready to spend more if you want to have the nicer trims (which are usually on the top spot).

In the overall end, the Explorer is able to offer more features and perks. If you are okay with the downsides, they aren’t too annoying. You need to realize that Explorer isn’t a perfect ride, after all.

Price and Release Date

The Explorer has quite a various trim level ranges, from the base line of Explorer to the top of the line King Ranch. The price tags may range from $39,000 to around $56,000. The lineups would start from Explorer, then the XLT, followed by ST-Line, and then Limited. Afterwards, you can expect the Timberline, the ST, the Platinum, and then topped off with King Ranch.

Information about the exact price tags isn’t available just yet. But if you want something that is worth your money, you should get the XLT. You won’t have to spend extra $10,000 (which you can get to buy the Limited), but you can still enjoy nice features, such as push button start, steering wheel wrapped in leather, keyless entry, bigger instrument panel, and privacy glass.

As a 3-row SUV, the Explorer is designed to tackle Chevy Traverse, Jeep Grand Cherokee L, Kia Telluride, and Toyota Highlander. And Ford needs to be serious with their development if they don’t want to lose the battle. The release date, again, is still unknown. But it’s predicted that it will take place in 2024 – most likely after the middle part of the year. We should know more about 2025 Ford Explorer once the auto maker is ready to provide more information about their future production.
