Explorer uses its available ultrasonic systems to help you in nearly all parking situations - park out assist, perpendicular parking and Forward and Side Sensing Systems.
Available enhanced active park assist adds the ability for Explorer to help you with perpendicular parking. Utilizing the vehicle's 12 ultrasonic sensors, Explorer will scan for suitable parking spaces and will assist in backing the vehicle into the spot.**
All you have to do is shift, accelerate and brake, and active park assist will take care of the steering.
*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver's attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle.
