What Can I Tow with a Ford Explorer?

If you live around Livonia and Farmington, MI and you’re looking for an SUV, there are no shortage of options to choose from. Some make for great daily drivers, while others prove to be incredible off-roaders that are perfect for a spontaneous adventure. However, if you’re looking for a mid-size SUV that can do it all, look no further than the aptly named Ford Explorer.

Towing prowess is not something we typically associate with SUVs, but in the case of the Ford Explorer, there is quite an uptick in that department. 2020 has brought about several important changes for the Explorer, but none may be as prominent as the improved towing capacity. The 2020 Ford Explorer now has a maximum towing capacity of 5,600 pounds, a figure that outclasses competitors in the same segment.

So, what can you do with 5,600 pounds around Redford MI and Westland MI? The short answer is, a lot.

For example, the average weight of a jet ski is 850 pounds, which means that the Ford Explorer can tow up to six of them at once. If you prefer to set up camp in a trailer, the Explorer lets you do that as well. A 20-foot trailer generally weighs between 2,700 to 2,900 pounds, so you’ll have more than enough wiggle room to haul the trailer, plus whatever gear you want to take with you.

Or if you are an animal lover, the average weight of an adult horse is anywhere from 840 to 2,200 pounds. When combined with a two-horse bumper pull trailer, which weighs anywhere between 2,400 to 3,200 pounds, the Explorer can tow your lovable mare wherever you need to go.
