Drivers Love the 2019 Subaru Ascent as an Alternative to the 2019 Ford Explorer

People looking to buy a new car often decide on the 2019 Subaru Ascent near McComb, MS over the many other models offered today. In fact, more people are moving away from the 2018 Ford Explorer and opting to replace this model with the 2019 Ascent. Why is this the case? What makes the vehicle so attractive to car drivers across the country?


More Places to Explore

The Subaru Ascent has many features not found in the Ford Explorer, allowing drivers to explore new terrain without hesitation. First and foremost, as with most Subaru vehicles, the Ascent features all-wheel drive. The Explorer comes with a front-wheel drivetrain as the standard. Furthermore, the Subaru offers more base engine torque, coming in at 277 pound-feet. Contrast this to the Ford which only offers 255 pound-feet. When it comes to ground clearance, the Ascent comes out on top also. The 2019 model offers 8.7 inches of ground clearance, almost a full inch more than the Explorer. Don’t hesitate to try something new when behind the wheel of our vehicle. You’ll love the places you can go thanks to these features.


More Room for the Family

Imagine trying to squeeze the family into the vehicle for a cross-country trip. Having room for eight people in the SUV would be preferable, right? If the answer to this question is yes, which for most it is, the Ascent is the vehicle to buy, as the 2018 Ford Explorer only offers seating for seven. Additionally, the Ascent comes with raised roof rails to make carrying cargo easier. This ensures passengers aren’t crowded or overloaded with items they want to take. They can simply be placed on the roof in an appropriate carrier. Owners of the 2018 base Explorer will find they can’t even upgrade and obtain this feature.


Enjoying the Ride

People love to listen to music, play an audiobook, or do many other things when behind the wheel. The 2019 Subaru Ascent near McComb, MS will need to be purchased to obtain access to many features. The Ascent comes with an audio system with AM/FM radio, digital and satellite radio, a CD player that reads MP3s, and a color and touchscreen. This is standard on the Convenience model and drivers will find more features as they move up in the trim levels. The 2018 Explorer base model only comes with an audio system with AM/FM radio and a color screen. Additionally, the Ascent comes with built-in apps, a feature not found in the Ford.


Safety Features

As drivers would expect, the 2019 Ascent comes loaded with safety features, as do all cars made by this manufacturer. Sadly, the 2018 Explorer cannot say the same. Individuals looking for front to rear curtain airbags will need to choose the Ascent, and the same is true for those who want a vehicle with driver knee airbags. The Ascent comes with a three-point rear seat belt for the center passenger and two height adjustable head restraints in the front and three height adjustable restraints for the head in the second and third rows. The Explorer only offers two height adjustable head restraints for the third row in addition to the two and three found in the first and second row respectively. The Ascent also features the well-known EyeSight collision warning system, something not found in the Ford. This system offers a pedestrian avoidance system, brake assist, and more.


Cargo Space

Drivers who tend to carry a lot of cargo will find the 2019 Subaru Ascent near McComb, MS to be the better choice. The Ford Explorer offers less space when the rear seat is down and when the third seat has been removed. However, when all seats are in place, the Explorer does have a slight advantage in this area.
