Ford Explorer Towing Features

Check out the available Ford Explorer towing features to enhance your capabilities around Mascoutah:

  • Towing and Trailer Sway Control: Selective braking and engine adjustments enhance trailer control and stability.
  • Class III Trailer Tow Package: Maximize your towing capabilities with this package, which can be added to the 2.3L EcoBoost® and 3.3L hybrid engines but comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost® engine.
  • AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control™: AdvanceTrac® with RSC™ monitors yaw and roll rates using gyroscopic sensors, and helps retain control in the event of wheel-slip, understeer, or oversteer. It also includes Curve Control, which slows the Explorer's speed during tight cornering.
  • Sidewind Stabilization: By counteracting strong winds, this system helps you maintain control rather than having to steer to fight against the wind.
  • All-new rear-wheel drive: Not only does this new drivetrain give the Explorer a sportier appearance, but it also improves driving capabilities and towing capacity by 600 pounds.
  • Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System™: Switch between Normal, Mud/Rut, Sand, or Grass/Gravel/Snow modes for ultimate control on the Columbia roads.
