Expert Rating

Not Available

Unlike other websites and magazines, our ratings are not based solely on a singular road test, but rather a more encompassing batch of criteria: quality, safety, comfort, performance, fuel economy, reliability history and value. When comparing vehicles using our Rating System, it's important to note that the rating earned by each vehicle correlates only to the models within its class. For example, a compact car cannot be compared to a SUV—They are different vehicles altogether.

You can interpret our ratings in the following way:

5-Star: Outstanding vehicle. Only the most exceptional vehicles achieve this rating.

4-Star: Very Good vehicle. Very good and close to being the best vehicle in its class.

3-Star: Good vehicle. Decent, but not quite the best. Often affordable, but lacking key features found in vehicles of the same class.

2-Star: Below average vehicle. Not recommended, and lacking attributes a car buyer would come to expect for the price.

1-Star: Poor vehicle. Simply does not deserve to be on the road.

2023 Ford Explorer Preview

Model Preview

The 2022 model of the Ford Explorer hasn’t even been released yet, but what are rumored to be leaked photos of the 2023 Explorer have found their way online and have people talking.

The newest generation of the Explorer has only just found its way back into the hearts of the public after the 2020 model brought back a fan favorite, the rear-wheel-drive platform. The 2022 model is expected to keep the more rugged, traditional SUV look while still retaining some sleekness with its body lines and comfortable interior. With these leaked photos, however, people currently have their focus on the 2023 model year.

The only new feature the spy photos seem to reveal is a refresh in outward design. The SUV appears to have slightly reshaped head and taillights, restyled vents that are on each side of the front bumper, a new wheel design, and, most eye-catching, a redesigned grille pattern. There is no confirmation that these changes will stay or that they will even appear on American models. As the photos supposedly came from China’s Ministry of Industry and Information Technology, the photos show the Chinese market model and the two countries’ versions of the Explorer look a bit different, despite sharing a platform.

Also shared by the Chinese and American versions of the most recent Explorer is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. This gives an output of 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Higher trims such as the ST and King Ranch are equipped with a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that has 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque. There has been no word on whether or not the engine options will change for the 2023 model, but we don’t currently believe they will.

Pricing & Release Date

According to fleet production data, Ford will start production on the 2023 Explorer in November, though orders can be taken as early as August. Reportedly, there is also an all-electric version of the Ford Explorer coming out, but we won’t see that until 2023. This makes it another highly anticipated electric release after the Mustang Mach-E, which is currently delayed in delivery, and the F-150 Lightning, rumored to start production in 2022.

Pricing for the 2023 Ford Explorer hasn’t been made available yet. The current base model has an MSRP of $34,170 and we suspect that the 2023 model may be around there as well unless there are upgrades that are confirmed at a later date.

SUVs are a popular segment, so there’s plenty of competition for the 2023 Explorer to fight against. Some key competitors may include the Honda Passport, Hyundai Palisade, Kia Sorento, Kia Telluride, Mazda CX-9, and Toyota Highlander.

Stay tuned for updates as they become available to us.
