2017 Ford Explorer Technology Spotlight


What makes a good SUV? Is it just about space for people and things, or is capability more important? At Bill Walsh Ford in Ottawa, IL, we don't like sacrificing one important trait for another, which is why we're huge fans of the 2017 Ford  Explorer. This SUV has it all, so you don't have to choose. One of its many offerings is an array of advanced technology that makes life easier, driving simpler, and road trips more fun.


SYNC3 Infotainment

Ford's available advanced infotainment system uses an organized colored touch screen as the hub of its information. Navigate through the screen by using natural voice commands to get media libraries, phone contacts, or the optional navigation. Sync up your smartphone so that phone calls or your favorite music apps are just an arm's reach away in a safer way.

Front 180-Degree Camera and Forward Sensing System

This available front-end camera makes pulling out into traffic from between cars or other tight spaces an easier feat to accomplish. Accompanied by a washer, in order to ensure a clean picture, this camera will always be available to use when maneuvering the 2017 Ford Explorer.


Enhanced Active Park Assist

While the front 180-degree camera helps in starting your journey, the optional active park assist makes arrival easier. Twelve different sensors are used to scan for a suitable parking spot and they then work to help maneuver your 2017 Explorer into the space.


Lane-Keeping System

Sometimes life can be distracting, and that's when proactive safety features like the available Lane-Keeping System are handy. This tool uses sensors to notice if and when you begin to drift from your lane, and will notify you by vibrating the steering wheel or correcting the drift with directional steering torque. This ensures safe and careful driving in the 2017 Ford Explorer, even when the inevitable distraction happens.
