This midsize SUV is equipped with ample cargo space and voluminous passenger room for premium accommodations and adjustment flexibility on the move.

For these reasons and countless others, our team recommends the 2019 Ford Explorer as a top option for consideration when surveying the midsize SUV marketplace for your next driveway addition!

The Kia Sorento

So how does the very best of the 2019 Ford Explorer measure up to what a segment competitor in the new Kia Sorento does well? Across several daily driver categories relevant to your purchase and lease decision-making - including comfort, capability, technology and standard features - this new Ford midsize SUV dominates the comparison conversation.

With greater max cargo space at 80.7 cubic feet, along with more head, shoulder and hip space in the front two rows, the new Ford Explorer goes above and beyond to make future travel comfortably rewarding. Standard driver-lumbar supported front seats, along with a power-adjustable driver's seat, are comfort creatures not available in the base Sorento. Higher up the trim level chain, available massage functions for the driver's seat and an dual-pane moonroof - plush amenities not offered for the Sorento - further distinguish what the Explorer can offer. Additionally, you won't discover stand-out technology settings in available automatic parking, HD radio, and Wi-Fi hotspot integration anywhere in the Kia Sorento lineup roster.

When directly contrasting the performance of both midsize SUVs, the new Ford Explorer again ranks favorably. This model's 3.5-liter V6 engine confidently outpaces the production of a competing Sorento four-cylinder engine with 290 horsepower over 185 horsepower. Considering both vehicle's top V6 engines, the twin-turbo EcoBoost® V6 engine of this new Ford model impresses once more with class-leading 365 horsepower over the 290 horsepower peak output produced by the competing Kia model.

 

The Chevrolet Traverse

Where does the new Chevy Traverse rank in terms of 2019 Ford Explorer competition? When you consider this midsize SUV's shortcomings in cabin space, feature assortments, maximum engine power and advanced technology, it becomes easy to justify selecting your next daily carpool option from our new Ford lineup here in Coon Rapids.

 

With both three-row options accommodating between seven and eight guests respectively, the new Ford Explorer still edges out its Traverse competition in passenger room for key seating positions. Leg space in both front rows of this Ford SUV come with extra inches to stretch out and unwind naturally. Standard lumbar support for the driver's seat, along with power-adjustable functions for the entire front row, are comfort creatures not incorporated into the Traverse's entry trim level. For next-level convenience and infotainment, available keyless start, automatic parking, massage driver's seat functions and HD radio - not featured anywhere in the Chevy SUV lineup - are offered.

 

Interested in which midsize SUV offers greater performance potential? A closer look at both three-row model's top engine selections points to the 2019 Ford Explorer as the definitive answer to this inquiry. With a class-leading 365-horsepower twin-turbo V6 engine, also producing 350 pound-feet, the 310-horsepower and 266 pound-feet output of the Traverse's comparable V6 pales in comparison.

The Toyota Highlander

When assessing the respective interior space, technology, available comfort creatures, and performance output of another competitor in the Toyota Highlander, we can confidently recommend the new Ford Explorer based on a comparison of respective midsize SUV specifications head-to-head.

 

A total passenger volume advantage of 151.7 cubic feet to 144.9 cubic feet leads to over four inches of extra third row leg space, along with more inches of room in respective head and shoulder areas of the front two rows. Standard driver-lumbar seat support, a power-adjustable front seat section and standard Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ smartphone app integration are just a few of the cabin luxuries not afforded to starting trim Highlander drivers. Other rich Explorer cabin amenities and design highlights not offered anywhere within the Highlander lineup include a hands-free liftgate, automatic parking, remote engine start, and a built-in Wi-Fi hotspot connection.

 

But which vehicle features the more high-powered engine options? That title belongs to the new Ford Explorer here in Coon Rapids. This model's base V6 engine generates 290 horsepower over 185 horsepower, with an available twin-turbo EcoBoost® V6 engine assertively outproducing the Highlander's top V6 by a wide 365 horsepower to 295 horsepower margin.
