Ford Explorer: Load Carrying / Roof Racks and Load Carriers (If Equipped)

Ford Explorer 2020-2023 Owners Manual / Load Carrying / Roof Racks and Load Carriers (If Equipped)

WARNING: When loading the roof racks, we recommend you evenly distribute the load, as well as maintain a low center of gravity. Loaded vehicles, with higher centers of gravity, may handle differently than unloaded vehicles. Take extra precautions, such as slower speeds and increased stopping distance, when driving a heavily loaded vehicle.

For correct roof rack system function, you must place loads directly on crossbars affixed to the roof rack side rails. When using the roof rack system, we recommend you use Ford Genuine Accessory crossbars designed specifically for your vehicle.

Make sure that you securely fasten the load. Check the tightness of the load before driving and at each fuel stop.

Note: Never place loads directly on the roof panel. The roof panel is not designed to directly carry a load.

Maximum Recommended Load Amounts

Note: The maximum recommended load is based on the load being evenly distributed on the crossbars.

Adjusting the Crossbar (If Equipped)

  1. Loosen the crossbar bolt by using the supplied tool or similar tool.
  2. Move the crossbar to the new position.
  3. Tighten the bolt by using the supplied tool or similar tool.

Note: For less wind noise and better aerodynamics, only install the crossbars when you need them for carrying cargo.
