The new Ford Explorer for Europe is the technical twin of the Volkswagen ID.4, with which it coincides in size with a wheelbase of 2,770 m, but at the same time the “American” is noticeably shorter – the length of the body is of 4.45 compared to 4.58 m. This hit the volume of the trunk, which turned out to be less than that of the Volks, as much as 93 liters and it is 450 liters. But the width of the Explorer has surpassed the ID.4 by about 2 cm – 1.87 m.

In the interior of the Ford Explorer, the front panel with a neat little screen attracts attention – only 5 inches and a projection screen is not provided. But multimedia Sync has a 14.6-inch touch screen, but the orientation of the tablet is not the only and not the main trump card of the system. This tablet has twenty intermediate tilt positions. Above the multimedia there is an “island” with a speaker and an LED backlight strip.
