2014 Ford Explorer Review For Atlanta | Features & Photos

Quality Ford Explorer Research From Mall of Georgia Ford

The Ford Explorer may have been built on a truck platform, but its 2014 edition strays from the mold, settling in as an everyday family SUV with sufficient room and engine power. No longer focusing on the Explorer's off-road capabilities, Ford has made changes to the vehicle's towing capacity in order to increase fuel efficiency. The change also brought with it a stronger emphasis on in-car safety, further pushing the name brand's aim toward buyers with growing families. Read on for a summary of the 2014 Ford Explorer in Atlanta, then continue down below for a detailed look at its specifications.


Although the Explorer has shied away from its more rugged capabilities, drivers will be happy to know the vehicle maintains a proper towing capacity of up to 5,000 pounds, and features trailer sway control to help steady hitched trailers on all road conditions. Newly integrated electric power-steering enhances performance when hauling exceptionally large loads. Also, for additional traction management, drivers can choose from a series of four-wheel-drive settings, including normal, mud/ruts, sand and grass/gravel/snow.


A Top Safety Pick by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety, the 2014 Ford Explorer excels in safety standards, creating a secure environment for drivers and passengers. SOS Post-Crash Alert System, AdvanceTrac stability control, SecuriCode key pad entry and dual-stage airbags give the SUV an edge in safety, but its second-row inflatable seatbelt option has become a standout feature noted in early 2014 Ford Explorer reviews. The system is specifically designed for children and small passengers to prevent head and upper body injuries.


Other notable changes and upgrades available for the 2014 Explorer include standard automatic headlamps, heated second-row seating, cruise control and two new exterior color options: Sunset and Dark Side.
