Mud, Rut

Heading off-road? Good. We know that backroads can get messy, but often offer great rewards for that adventurous spirit. This mode offers the driver enhanced powertrain torque, limiting transmission upshifts and letting the wheels spin to keep you moving in the think stuff.



Heading to the beach or the Desert? Dunes are no problem for the Explorer in Sand Mode. This option offers the driver more aggressive throttle progression and holds the gear longer to help transfer optimized torque to the wheels.

Snow, Gravel, Grass

This mode offers the driver earlier upshifts and less aggressive engine torque distribution, limiting wheel-slip to help improve traction on those trickier of terrains.
