2015 Ford Explorer Can Pull a Serious Amount of Weight

2015 Ford Explorer Towing Capacity Suv Boat Camper Rv Hitch 1024x333

2015 Ford Explorer Towing Capacity

Just about every one of the Ford vehicles on the market have names that accurately describe exactly what they are capable of. It’s a claim backed by taking a look at just about every one of the SUVs in the lineup. For example, there is the Escape, Flex, Expedition and of course the Explorer. The Explorer has become one of the most popular Ford models over the past few years, as it is not only able to deliver power and efficiency on city and highway roads, but on more unconventional off-road trails and paths as well.

Seeing as the Ford Explorer is meant to explore, it comes equipped with a range of features that allow you to take on just about any terrain that you come across. It also features a spacious cargo area and a set of roof rails to help you to pack all of your belongings, but if you travel heavy, you will be sure that the 2015 Ford Explorer towing capacity is able to accommodate a great deal of weight so that you can load up all of your extra belongings on a trailer or bring along a boat, jet ski, dirt bikes or a camper.

A short while back when we looked at the 2015 Ford Explorer performance specs, we told you that the Explorer is made available with a number of different engines. It doesn’t matter what type of engine you opt for, however, as each one of them is able to tow some serious weight without a hitch—figuratively speaking, of course. Let’s take a look at the towing capacity of all three of the engines.

If you choose either one of the 3.5-liter V6 engines, you will be able to tow as much as 5,000 pounds with ease. It’s more than enough power to pull any of the items that we mentioned above. If you don’t need as much towing power or if you don’t plan to use your Ford Explorer for towing too often, you will find that the 2000-pound towing capacity of the smaller 2.0-liter four-cylinder is more than enough for your needs.

With such an impressive amount of towing power, it really comes as no surprise that residents living in and around the Kansas City area are turning to the 2015 Ford Explorer. If you have a sense of adventure and want to get a vehicle that is just as willing to take on the unknown as you are, look no further than the Explorer. If you want to put the towing capacity to the test for yourself, be sure to get in touch with us here at Matt Ford. We would be more than happy to introduce you to the superior capabilities of the SUV.
