The 2012 Ford Explorer base model features an affordable MSRP for buyers looking to save some money on their next vehicle purchase. The Base trim includes an Advance Trac with Roll Stability and Curve Control system. Advance Trac is the industry's only electronic stability control system that uses two gyroscopic sensors to monitor both yaw rate and roll rate. This allows AdvanceTrac with RSC to help you maintain control whenever it detects wheelslip, understeer, oversteer or roll motion. Curve Control will automatically slow the vehicle down if it senses that the vehicle is going too fast for a particular curve, giving you greater control with less chance of a rollover. The Base trim also comes with: Trailer Sway Control, 17-inch steel wheels with wheel covers, single-zone climate control, rear auxiliary climate control, MyFord interactive driver system, powered windows and doors, programmable MyKey driver safety system, six-speaker stereo system with CD player and auxiliary input jack, black lower front and rear bumpers, bodyside cladding, and dual chrome exhaust tips.

The next trim level is the gorgeous Ford Explorer XLT. The XLT comes standard with a six-speed SelectShift Automatic transmission, SecuriCode keyless entry keypad, a reverse sensing system and SIRIUS Satellite Radio. This vehicle offers an optional BLIS Traffic Alert system which uses sensors in the rear quarter panels to monitor your blind spots and illuminates an alert display on the appropriate exterior mirror if another vehicle is detected there before you change lanes. When slowly backing out of a parking space, the system can detect another vehicle approaching from either side and warn you. The interior of the XLT is rounded out with unique cloth bucket seats, while the exterior features chrome door handles, chrome bodyside cladding, satin silver grille, and gloss black heated security approach lamps and turn signal indicators.

The 2012 Ford Explorer Limited is a luxury SUV trim level. It features leather-trimmed seats, intelligent access with push-button start and a Sony audio system with Ford HD radio. The Limited has two package options that include a luxury seating package, Ford Voice Activated Navigation, MyFord Touch, a BLIS Traffic Alert system, adaptive cruise control and collision warning with brake support. Standard features include a rear-view camera, remote start, Ford SYNC in-car connectivity system and SIRIUS satellite radio, making this SUV a joy to drive.
