2017 Ford Explorer engine specs

When it comes to buying a new vehicle, many drivers believe that you have to sacrifice power in order to get affordable fuel economy and vice versa. This is actually a popular myth in the industry, evidenced by our very own 2017 Ford Explorer engine specs. Offering the perfect blend of power and capability with affordable fuel efficiency, the Explorer is a great option for drivers and families looking for a vehicle that can handle whatever the road – or lack thereof – throws at it. Under the hood of the standard 2017 Ford Explorer sits a 3.5-liter, EcoBoost® engine designed to offer superior fuel economy and power at the same time. On the power front, the 2.3-liter Ford Explorer engine is able to produce an impressive 280 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque for an exhilarating, responsive drive that’s quick to start and quick to the top. This is mostly thanks to the engine’s twin-scroll low-inertia turbocharger, which is able to separate the exhaust pulses from the cylinders for quicker turbine spin-up. This turbocharger also enhances Explorer’s fuel economy while accelerating, making it more efficient from the start. This fuel efficient engine makes it capable of achieving an EPA-estimated 17 mpg in the city and 24 mpg on the highway, a notable achievement for a large, 7-seat vehicle like the Explorer.
