2016 Ford Explorer

2016 Ford Explorer | First Impressions Done Right


With a fresh look and many newly introduced features we find the 2016 Ford Explorer. With seating for seven and four trim levels to choose from, the base model, the XLT, the Limited and the Platinum, there is something for everyone without having to compromise. For an SUV that is quickly becoming an icon, the Ford Explorer is breaking new limits and setting the bar high.

The interior of the 2016 Ford Explorer is packed full of luxurious touches. With technology features such as the available Sync® with MyFord Touch®, you can stay connected with hands-free calling and many voice-activated entertainment abilities. The available second-row USB ports allow your phone or tablets to remain fully charged, in a convenient and accessible way. On the outside, innovative design changes help to transform the Ford Explorer into a more aerodynamic vehicle; with air inlets and exits, which help keep air flow close to the body of the vehicle, reducing drag. Other features, such as the newly designed lighting, pair well with the bold exterior edges and bring long-lasting illumination. An impressive feature of the Explorer is the available foot-activated, hands-free power liftgate, allowing you to easily open the liftgate and load cargo into the back by tapping your foot under the bumper.


With three available engine options, the 2016 Ford Explorer has upped its ante in capability and is following through on every claim. The new 2.3-litre EcoBoost® engine boosts the power and torque without adding any extra weight, changing the game for SUV’s entirely.

2016 Engines:

  • 2.3L EcoBoost® four-cylinder: 270 horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque
  • 3.5L EcoBoost® V6: 365 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque
  •  3.5L Ti-VCT V6: 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque


Whether it is in offering choices for those of us with specific needs, or providing outstanding performance and technological improvements, the 2016 Ford Explorer has taken the lead on many levels. Without leaving anything out, including updated safety technology, the Ford Explorer is changing the way we look at Sports Utility Vehicles. With available features such as active park assist with park-out assist, the updated system helps the driver parallel or perpendicular park using ultrasonic sensors and electric power-assisted steering. Take to the road in a vehicle that is working to make your dreams a daily reality.
