Towing capacity is important when you are thinking about buying an SUV, and in that department the 2017 Ford Explorer delivers. While the economical 2.3-liter EcoBoost engines are capable of an impressive 2,000 pounds of towing capacity, the 3.5-liter engines (both EcoBoost and standard) are capable of towing 5,000 pounds.
With room for seven people, plus cargo, the 2017 Explorer is perfect for your entire family. When you are packing up for a camping trip or even just helping a friend move, you will be able to take advantage of 81.7 cubic feet of cargo capacity behind the first row, and with all seats up, you still have 21 cubic feet in the back to work with.
