Test drive the 2019 Ford Explorer at Kovatch Ford in Nesquehoning PA

It may be more powerful and roomier than its Pathfinder counterpart, but where the 2019 Ford Explorer really shines is in its tech innovation, especially when compared to most other SUVs in its class. With a 180-Degree Camera, foot-activated power liftgate, and SYNC® 3 infotainment system all coming standard, no SUV can meet your connectivity and convenience needs quite like the Explorer. 

That’s not even mentioning the built-in Wi-Fi hotspot that the Explorer has in store, which is an innovation not seen with the Pathfinder. All the while, you can trust in its Safe and Smart™ package to keep you safe and secure in ways that Nissan’s top models simply can’t. Safe and Smart™ includes the following technologies:

  • Rain Sensing Wipers
  • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
  • Lane Keeping System
  • Adaptive Cruise Control
  • Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support

With all this in mind, it’s no wonder why the 2019 Ford Explorer is set to keep a firm hold on the interests of American drivers. Contact our Kovatch Ford sales team today if you’d like to schedule a no-hassle test drive of the model; we’re happy to help you get inside!
