Explore Everything that Makes the 2022 Ford Explorer the Right Choice for You

More than 30 years after it first debuted, the Ford Explorer is still going strong. Currently in its sixth generation, this SUV has undergone a lot of changes and updates since its initial premiere in 1991, but it remains one of our favorite models to recommend to customers here at Mel Ervin Ford in Chesaning.

What's New for the Ford Explorer in 2022?

Just a couple of years after a major overhaul and redesign, the 2022 Ford Explorer doesn't feature any new design elements. It does, however, give drivers a few nice updates. The most exciting of these updates takes place in the trim lineup, where the Explorer gives us a great new option to consider, the Ford Explorer ST-Line. It gets sporty handling and a slew of great features, and it joins the collection this year as a mid-level trim option.

Other notable changes this year include the new availability of rear-wheel drive for the Explorer ST trim level, and a minor shakeup in the list of standard and optional amenities for all trims.


One of the most popular options for families both here in Michigan, and beyond, the Ford Explorer is a three-row SUV that has ample room for all of the people and the cargo you need to take with you. It's a midsized SUV that has four doors, with a rear cargo hold that's accessible via liftgate and can accommodate more than 18 cubic feet of gear with all seats in place, with more space available by folding down the back rows.


The addition of the all-new Ford Explorer ST-Line trim level brings the total number of options to eight. Drivers throughout Michigan can get as many or as few features as they want with this collection, and there's something to exceed your expectations among them. The complete lineup includes:

  • 2022 Ford Explorer base model
  • 2022 Ford Explorer XLT
  • 2022 Ford Explorer Limited
  • 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line
  • 2022 Ford Explorer Timberline
  • 2022 Ford Explorer ST
  • 2022 Ford Explorer King Ranch
  • 2022 Ford Explorer Platinum


A highly customizable model that you can personalize to suit your needs, the 2022 Ford Explorer also has several responsive and smooth engine possibilities, including a groundbreaking and innovative hybrid option, to help you get the most out of your commute. Which powertrain comes under the hood of your next Ford Explorer depends on your personal preference and your favorite trim. The options include:

  • A turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine with 300 horsepower, 310 pound-feet of torque, a ten-speed automatic transmission, and the choice of either rear-wheel or all-wheel drive. This system serves as the base powerplant for all Explorer base models, XLT models, ST-Line models, Limited models, and Timberline models.
  • A turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine that produces 400 horsepower and has 415 pound-feet of torque and is the standard powertrain for all top-tier models, the ST trim, King Ranch, and Platinum.
  • A V6 hybrid powertrain with 318 horsepower and an estimated 27 mpg combined that is exclusively available as an option for the Explorer Limited trim level. Called the Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid, it has all the style and features drivers love about the traditional Limited trim, but with the added bonus of a hybrid system under its hood.

Have a camper or boat to tow with you on weekend adventures with the family? Depending on the configuration you choose, this SUV can also tow up to 5,000 pounds.
