What is It?
Power adjustable pedals

What We Like
People come in all shapes and sizes, and it's oftentimes difficult to find that perfect driving position by seat adjustments alone. Power-adjustable pedals allow another mode of adjustment, bringing the pedals closer or placing them farther away, allowing a broader range of people to be comfortable behind the wheel.

What We Don't Like
As Ford doesn't have a lockout for this feature when the Explorer's in gear, it's easy to unintentionally accelerate if your foot is resting against the accelerator while the vehicle's in Drive or Reverse, and you press the switch to move the pedals closer to the driver.

How It Works
Depressing the dash-mounted switch activates an electric actuator, which moves the pedal assembly closer or farther away from the driver's seat.
