New Ford Explorer for Sale near Park Rapids and Wadena

Since its first introduction nearly three decades ago, the Ford Explorer has established itself as a standard-setter in its class. As one of the first nameplates to help usher in the modern SUV era, it continues to rank among the industry's most popular models. Receiving a complete redesign for the 2020 model year, the sixth-generation Explorer combines robust performance, a spacious interior, and generous feature offerings. For Detroit Lakes-area families seeking a new SUV with versatile accommodations and an array of standard and available safety technologies, the Ford Explorer remains a compelling option.


Attractive and inviting, the Explorer's cabin offers stylish design elements, high-quality materials, and an intuitive control layout. The contoured and supportive seats provide ample comfort, whether running errands around town or embarking on a summer road trip. Hot summers and cold winters are no problem thanks to features like standard dual-zone automatic climate control and available heated and ventilated seats.

The Explorer accommodates seven people in its standard configuration, with 20 cubic feet to spare for luggage or groceries. However, if you don't need the extra seat, available second-row captain's chairs provide more passenger space and improved ease of access to the back seats. The folding E-Z entry second-row and 50/50-split third-row provide a variety of seating/cargo combinations and up to 88 cubic feet of maximum carrying capacity.


Despite its larger proportions, the Ford Explorer delivers confident acceleration, whether merging onto the highway or safely passing a large truck. The standard 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine (300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque) pairs with smooth and precise 10-speed automatic transmission to provide internal motivation. Standard rear-wheel-drive improves handling and towing capability, and all-wheel-drive is an option on all trims. The Ford Explorer can tow up 5,600 pounds when properly equipped.

By stepping up to the Platinum tier, Pelican Rapids drivers can enjoy the enhanced performance of a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6  that generates 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. And if you're seeking more potent propulsion, the racing-inspired ST trim tunes the powerplant to deliver an impressive 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.


Standard on all Explorer trims, the SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system makes it easy to stay connected without losing focus on the road. Standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto intuitively integrate your compatible smartphone with the 8-inch touchscreen, providing access to hands-free calls and messaging, streaming media, maps and directions, and much more. ST and Platinum models can also equip the Premium Technology package, which adds a larger 10.1-inch display, massaging front seats, and a 14-speaker Bang & Olufsen premium audio system.

If you've ever had to pass a prime parallel parking place because you were unsure of your abilities, you'll appreciate the Explorer's available parking system. With the touch of a button, Active Park Assist 2.0 can detect a sufficiently sized space and automatically steer into it.

Advanced Safety Features

With journeys of any length, the best way to ensure safe arrival is by staying alert behind the wheel. To help enhance driver awareness, the Ford Explorer includes several advanced driver-assistance technologies. Standard across the Explorer lineup, the  Ford Co-Pilot360 package includes:

  • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
  • Lane-Keeping System
  • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pre-Collision Assist
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Rear View Camera

For even more driver-assistance technologies, the Co-Pilot360+ package is available on XLT models and standard on Limited and higher trims. It includes integrated navigation, an upgraded lane-keeping assist system, evasive steering assist, adaptive cruise control, and a 360-degree parking camera system.
