Summer road trips just got a whole lot easier with the useful features of the new Ford Explorer!

Summer is in full swing here in upstate New York, and if you're anything like many families here in Utica, NY, you've likely got plenty of summer travel plans lined up for the remainder of the summer. That said, if you travel a lot with your little ones in tow, you know just how challenging it can be to keep kids occupied on long car rides. Fortunately, so does Ford, which is why it's designed the new Ford Explorer with a whole host of useful features to keep your kids comfortable, happy, and most importantly, occupied on long car rides.

Now, for many parents on the road these days, smartphones and mobile devices are a godsend. Seriously, mobile apps and games like Candy Crush and Angry Birds have done more to keep peace in the back seat on long road trips these days than all the I Spy and card games of yesteryear. Unfortunately, those mobile devices do tend to run low on battery and with many large SUVs, there isn't a place to charge up. Fortunately, the new Ford Explorer features available Dual Second-Row Smart-Charging USB Ports, which can charge up most smart phones and tablets twice as fast as a standard USB.

Now, most of us want our kids to get off their phones and tablets from time to time, but trust us when we say that keeping those things charged up and in their hands on the road can help make long road trips markedly more peaceful. Of course, the Dual Second-Row Smart-Charging USB Ports are just one of many features the new Ford Explorer offers to make road tripping more manageable. If you'd like to find out more about all that this three-row SUV can do, feel free to visit us at Don's Ford in Utica, NY to test drive the Ford Explorer today!
