If you are in the market for a family-friendly SUV loaded with high-tech electronics, consider the 2017 Ford Explorer Platinum. This stylish vehicle can carry up to seven passengers and still have plenty of room for groceries or luggage.
Powered by a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 engine, the Explorer generates 365 hp and 360 lb-ft of torque. Fuel economy is set at 19 mpg combined (16 city/22 highway). With the proper towing package, it can pull up to 5,000 pounds with ease, making it ideal for road trips.
The top-of-the-line Platinum trim level adds a panoramic sunroof and ventilated front seats for comfort. The heated steering wheel is perfect for keeping your hands warm during the cold winter months in the Pacific Northwest. According to Edmunds, driver memory functions can be pre-set, and the rear-seat entertainment system will keep your kids occupied throughout the ride.
Bluetooth connectivity enables hands-free calling, and you can charge your mobile devices using the USB port provided.
