Introducing the 2019 Ford Explorer - Ready for All of Your Adventures

For nearly 30 years, the Ford Explorer has been a top name in the SUV category. Riverside Ford in Macon, Ga has been there since the beginning, and we're just excited now as we were then. Including a laundry list of advanced features, this new Ford SUV has everything our Warner Robins area customers need, and we've got plenty Explorer models in stock to choose from.


Whether you're carrying the entire family while towing the boat to Lake Sinclair, or taking a group of friends to The Shoppes at River Crossing, the Explorer has everything you need to make every trip a success.

Available third-row seating will allow our Forsyth, GA SUV shoppers to carry up to seven passengers while maintaining 21 cubic feet of room for storage, or they can fold flat to offer nearly 44 cubic feet of cargo space.

You can add to the spacious feel with an available twin panel moonroof to add a touch of luxury. No matter what your needs or preferences, the Explorer has a comfortable solution.

Of course, you'll need power to do all of that, and Ford has fitted the Explorer with three engine options, each capable of towing up to 5,000 pounds. From there they are tailored to suit whatever our Warner Robins area drivers need to do.
