2019 Ford Explorer Trim Levels near Kenosha, WI

2019 Ford Explorer pictured above with avaliable options.

With five trims to choose from, the 2019 Ford Explorer has certainly left no stone unturned when it comes to providing as customizable a driving experience as possible! We know that researching this many options might be a bit overwhelming, so read on to learn about some of the differences between the five iterations of this exciting SUV. Once you know which you’d like to see in person, we’ll be waiting for you at Gillespie Ford!

Explorer

The standard trim, labeled simply “Explorer,” is loaded with plenty of features to keep you satisfied on the road. Under the hood, you’ll have a 3.5L V6 engine outfitted with Twin Independent Variable Camshaft Timing, advanced tech that will get you a stunning 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque! Complimenting the growl of your engine will be the shine of the standard dual chrome exhaust tips, providing a high-performance touch below your rear bumper and LED taillamps. In front, automatic LED low-beam headlamps will lead the way with incredibly sharp illumination that intelligently activates depending on ambient lighting conditions. Sitting between the headlights is the Dark Foundry Gray mesh insert with chrome bars, which anchors the front fascia with confidence.

XLT & Limited

The XLT Explorer trim ups the ante when it comes to interior amenities. You’ll be on the road in no time courtesy of the standard Intelligent Access with Push-Button Start, which enables you to leave your keys in your pocket while you enter the cabin with one touch on the door and bring the engine to life with a single press on your dashboard. As you’re pulling out of the parking lot, the Explorer XLT will be watching over you with the standard Reverse Sensing System1, emitting a series of beeps when you’re nearing a collision risk behind your vehicle. And if you upgrade to the Limited trim, even more safety features will come standard, including the Blind Spot Information System1 with cross-traffic alert1 and the Forward Sensing System1. These driver-assist technologies will warn you of impact dangers off to either side and on the road ahead of you.

Sport & Platinum

The top two trims of the 2019 Explorer bring some truly opulent features along for the ride. In the Sport iteration, you’ll command the road while cradled by a standard perforated leather-trimmed seat with unique red accent stitching. And that’s not the best part — wait until you meet our frigid Wisconsin winter head-on with the standard seat heating! It’s matched with a heated, leather wrapped steering wheel, keeping you cozy in any conditions. However, if you find yourself at the helm of the Ford Explorer’s Platinum trim, you might not need those features to keep your blood flowing. That’s because you’ll be roaring down I-94 behind the monstrous 3.5L EcoBoost® engine, which churns out a whopping 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque!

Whatever the road ahead requires, you’ll find what you need within the 2019 Ford Explorer trim levels near Kenosha, WI. Take an up-close-and-personal look at the whole line of these exhilarating SUVs at Gillespie Ford, conveniently located at 18834 W Grand Ave. in Gurnee, IL!

They made the process as painless as possible, walked through each step with us and made sure I walked away with a car I loved and a great price. Overall everyone at the dealership was so kind and wanted to make sure we were satisfied with the visit.

My wife and I walked in today to see what Gillespie has to offer for cars on a new Fusion. We were greeted by the sales person Lee, he extended his advanced customer service assistance immediately, which is very important as a form of aknowledgment every customer should receive👍. He was incredibly helpful, kind, and patient during our time at the dealership. We later met with the manager Nate, he was was fantastic, very knowledgeable and not at all pushy neither was Lee. He showed us many different options and really helped us pick out the perfect option and a great deal as well. The entire process was so easy and pressure free. In conclusion, if it weren’t for Lee and Nate today, my wife and I probably would have walked out of the dealership today without purchasing any car. Thank you guys!
