With school getting underway in and around Taylorsville, now could be a great time to think about upgrading your vehicle. Our Ford dealership makes a variety of vehicles perfect for busy moms and dads, including the 2019 Ford Explorer.


One of the biggest complaints parents often have when it comes to driving their children around is a lack of space in their car. Kids typically carry a lot of stuff with them, such as backpacks and sports equipment, and when you add in some friends and their stuff, things can get pretty cramped pretty quickly. But this won’t be an issue with the 2019 Ford Explorer. The very spacious cabin will seat up to seven people in its three rows. It also has a lot of cargo room; behind the third row there are 21 cubic feet of space. When this row is folded, this goes up to 43.9 cubic feet. And when both back rows are down, you will have 81.7 cubic feet to work with.


The Ford Explorer interior isn’t just roomy, it’s also very comfortable. The front seats are designed to be very supportive, and an 8-way power-adjustable driver’s seat is standard. Cloth upholstery is also standard, but you have the option to upgrade to leather. Other available features include heated and cooled front seats, 10-way power-adjustable front seats, power-folding third-row seats, and a leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel.


The 2019 Ford Explorer received an overall 5-star rating from the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, which will give you peace of mind as you drive your precious cargo around town. This SUV comes standard with a rearview camera along with Ford’s MyKey®, which is especially good for parents with budding drivers, as it lets them control settings for things like speed and the volume of the stereo. In addition, there are numerous available safety features, such as automatic high beams, rear cross-traffic alert, forward collision warning, and blind spot monitoring.
