Finally, the Explorer Platinum is the choice of many 2017 Ford Explorer reviews thanks it more premium features, such as a panoramic sunroof, adaptive cruise control, ventilated front seats, a 12-speaker Sony audio system and parking assist.

Excellent Power & Precision

The standard powertrain on the 2017 Explorer is a 3.5-liter V6 engine that generates a very hefty 290 horses and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. This powertrain is rounded out by a six-speed automatic transmission that gives the SUV a very smooth driving feel, and drivers have the option between two available drivetrains (front and all-wheel), depending on their needs.

Shoppers who choose the Sport model of the 2017 Ford Explorer near Atlanta will find that a turbocharged version of the V6 powers the SUV, which, according to Edmunds.com, provides "lots of speed and impressive handling and braking."

Family-Oriented Safety & Protection

Along with this notable list of standard and available amenities on the SUV, many 2017 Explorer reviews have also been very impressed with the sport utility's abundance of standard safety systems, such as a post-crash alert system, a rearview camera and a safety canopy airbag system.
