The Ford Explorer range is getting stronger and stronger. This explains why the Explorer is now distinguished by its many versions. The latest one? It is called "Timberline" and its strength lies in its off-road capabilities.
This model is unique. Its characteristics make it one of the most competent off-road vehicles. This is why it is equipped with specific and effective equipment.
Visually, there are several differences from other versions of its range, displaying a strong design reinforced by various accessories and colours. As far as the name is concerned, Ford is thinking of transforming the Timberline name into an off-road product line. The brand's other SUV models could then receive the same treatment as the Explorer.
Timberline's exterior design is highlighted by a dark body colour, a grille in the middle of a pair of slim headlights with LED lights, auxiliary lights and a sturdy bumper through which the set of tow hooks can be seen. The 18-inch wheels are shod with off-road tires.
Onboard, the Explorer Timberline is finished with ActiveX upholstered seats with cloth inserts and rubber flooring. Interior features include Co-Pilot360 and Co-Pilot360 Assist + with intelligent adaptive cruise control that recognizes speed signs, stop and go, lane alert, navigation assistant with voice assistant, 360-degree camera, among others.
This Timberline variant will only be offered with the 2.3-litre EcoBoost four-cylinder engine that produces 300 horsepower coupled with a 10-speed automatic transmission.
Its off-road power comes from an upgraded suspension with heavy-duty shocks, new springs and sway bars that, combined with the tires, give it 0.8 inches of lift for a total of 8.7 inches. The drivetrain is a 4×4 with a Torsen limited-slip rear differential and a handling system with seven different modes.
The new Ford Explorer Timberline is for the adventurer in you, who doesn't scorn its comfort. Stop by and take it for a spin!
