Ford Explorer PHEV, a perfume of America

Stationed up here in the great open spaces of america, the SUV Explorer 5 meters long is preparing, for the first time, to ask its large wheels on european soil. Without a true competitor, this SUV size XXL has three major advantages: it can accommodate up to 7 people across three rows of seats, tow boats, vans or large trailers up to 2,500 kg and ride electric. This last characteristic has conditioned the process of obtaining his visa to Europe. Thanks to its rechargeable hybrid drivetrain based in particular on a battery of 13.6 kWh, Ford ensures that the Explorer will be able to travel 42 km without wasting a single drop of fuel and without triggering its V6 3-litre turbo EcoBoost. The battery recharges in less than 5 hours 50 minutes on a household outlet.

Thanks to the miracle of the fairy electricity, the Explorer claims according to the protocol WLTP a consumption of 3.1 l/100 km, which corresponds to CO2 emissions of 71 g/km. If he is not entitled to any bonus, the Explorer PHEV has the grey card for free in many departments and for the business, a partial exemption during the 12 quarters of the tax on company vehicles (TVS).


Ford does not detail the technology, but the cumulative power has nothing to envy to a Mustang because the Explorer PHEV boasts 450 hp. The impressive torque of 825 Nm is one of the queens of the diesel or a pure-blood. The V6 is mated to the automatic transmission 10 reports that a team of the Mustang. Very sophisticated, great SUV from Ford flatters to adapt to all types of terrain thanks to its seven driving modes: Normal, Sport, Trail, Slippery Terrain, Towing, Snow/Sand, and Steep Slope.


No doubt, the Explorer was originally developed for the american customer. If you doubt that, be aware that it multiplies the storage spaces and aligns no less than 12 cup holders. It also has five outlets, two USB ports and an air conditioning system three-zones. Champion of the flexibility, the Explorer offers a multitude of configurations. It is thus possible to retract electrically, the seats of row 2 and 3 to reach a volume loading of 2 274 litres. In version 7 seats, the capacity of the trunk is reduced to 123 litres.

premium Vehicle sold from 77 000 euros, the Explorer PHEV multiplies the amenities and refinements: the front seats are heated, massaging and air-conditioned, those of rank 2 can be heated, hi-fi B&O 980 watts aligns 14 speakers. The systems of driving aids relate to the parking, fully automated, the system of monitoring of blind spots and the appearance of a vehicle when one leaves a place in reverse, the collision prevention with automatic braking emergency, including the detection of pedestrians, even at night, and cyclists, but also the adaptive cruise control with stop & go, reading road signs and maintaining the centre of the track.

The Explorer has a touch screen of 10.1 inches.

"Ecoboost" it's like the "clean diesel" expensive VW in the USA. The marketing in Europe of such a vehicle is pure bureaucratic corruption.
