Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive
The Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive system available on the 2017 Explorer is able to monitor the road in order to optimize the powertrain and braking system to match the driving conditions. Winter is coming and that means the threat of black ice on the roads. With the Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive system, your Explorer will be able to detect any ice on the road and will make the appropriate adjustments to keep you as safe as possible.
Blind Spot Information
Also available on the 2017 Explorer is a Blind Spot Information System. By using radar located on the rear quarter panels, this system is able to identify when a vehicle is entering your blind spot. When it does detect a vehicle moving in, it will send you alerts with an indicator light on the side-view mirror. This system is paired with Cross-Traffic Alert which watches the area behind your Explorer while you’re backing up. If a vehicle is detected approaching from up to 13.7 metres away, it will send you an audible warning to let you know of the incoming traffic.
These are just two of the many more safety features on the 2017 Explorer.
