After you've decided to enhance your next road trip with the Ford Explorer, you have another important decision to make: Which trim level do you want? With five trims you have a lot of options and the answer to which one's best for you lies in your individual needs. 

At Springfield Ford, we want to get you behind the wheel of a car that can help you explore the road for miles to come, so we created this breakdown of the Ford Explorer trim levels. Our friends near Springfield, Glenolden, and Swarthmore should read on and contact us with any questions.

Explorer: Standard Cargo Space

This third-row SUV is configurable to suit your cargo and passenger needs thanks to a second-row 60/40 split-fold-flat seat and third-row 50/50 split-fold-flat seat. When all three rows are upright, take a road trip with seven passengers and still have 21 cubic feet of cargo room for everyone's day packs. If you're taking a solo venture and need more space for camping equipment, though, these seats can be folded flat to create an 81.7-cubic-foot cargo area.

XLT: A Cozy Cabin

Whether your next excursion has you traveling out of state or into the city for the big game, you'll stay relaxed throughout the ride in the XLT with a 10-way power driver's seat with power lumbar. These seats can be adjusted to your ideal driving position to help reduce driving fatigue. Your tailgate partner will also be comfortable in a 6-way power-adjustable front-passenger seat.

Limited: A Safe and Secure Drive

Want the peace of mind that comes with enhanced safety technologies? Limited is the ideal Explorer trim for you! It comes with a Blind Spot Information System® with Cross-Traffic Alert to detect vehicles in your blind zones when traveling on the open road or backing out in a crowded parking lot. Thanks to this advanced safety system, you'll be able to explore the thrills of the open road with added confidence.

Sport: Adventure Ready

Take your journey to new heights with Sport. Its 3.5-liter EcoBoost® V6 engine produces 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque for a commanding performance through various terrains. When combined with a Class III Trailer Tow Package, you'll be treated to a maximum towing capacity of 5,000 pounds. If you're looking to take your small hard-sided RV or fishing boat on your next exciting road trip, consider the Sport.

Platinum: A Premium Interior

Even when your SUV is roughing it through the mud and gravel, you'll stay relaxed behind the wheel of Platinum. Its front seats are not only heated and cooled to help combat whatever unpredictable Pennsylvanian weather you're encountering, but they offer Active Motion massage functionality as well. Sit back in these top-of-the-line seats and allow your stress to just melt away.
