Ford Explorer Fuel Economy

Ford Explorer Gas MileageThe 2022 Ford Explorer standardly provides up to an EPA-estimated 21 city and 28 highway MPG. That kind of fuel economy comes from its 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine. It keeps the drive going with a larger 17.9-gallon gas tank and auto start-stop technology.

The base trim comes with standard rear-wheel drive, but Intelligent 4WD (4-wheel drive) is also available. It gives you peace of mind with dependable traction as well as an efficient performance. With 4WD, the 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 engine can offer up to an EPA-estimated 20 city and 27 highway MPG.

Both of the Explorer’s other engines are V6 powertrains. One is a gas engine and the other is a hybrid engine. The gas 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine comes with a 20.2-gallon gas tank. It delivers an EPA-estimated 18 city and 26 highway MPG. Meanwhile, the 3.3L Hybrid V6 provides an EPA-estimated 27 city and 28 highway MPG.

All of the Ford Explorer’s powertrains work with a versatile 10-speed automatic transmission. In addition to offering good fuel economy, each engine provides lots of power so you can carry all your cargo.

The 2.3L EcoBoost® I-4 that comes standard on the base trim produces 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft of torque. With that kind of power, you’ll have a 5,300-pound towing capacity when properly equipped. That’s enough to bring a big trailer or pull a couple of recreational vehicles.

The next option is a 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 that delivers 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. You’ll get a maximum towing capacity of 5,600 pounds with this engine and when properly configured.

While the Explorer’s hybrid engine helps you cut down on stops for gas, it’s also a lot of fun to drive. It can get up to 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. Plus, it can tow up to 5,000 pounds when properly equipped.
