The 2016 Ford Explorer marks the most significant update to the Explorer series since 2011. Mechanically, the new EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine marks the most significant change. Changes on the exterior include new rear and front styling, a newly introduced top-spec trim level, and a number of new interior improvements and additions.
Power Trains and Performance
The XLT, Limited and Base trim levels comes with a V6 3.5-liter engine capable of generating 290 hp and some powerful 255 pound-feet of torque. You choose between the standard front-wheel drive and the available AWD.
2016 Ford Explorer will grab your attention with its distinctive grille that comes with a quality satin-chrome finish. Other outstanding features are the integrated chrome dual exhaust tips and the twenty-inch bright-machined wheels that have dark-painted Pockets.
The new Ford Explorer’s interior is equally impressive. The 2017 model comes with the standard Ford dual-panel moon-roof and the uniquely designed Nirvana leather that have quilted inserts and micro-perforation. Standard in the 2017 Explorer is a leather-wrapped heated steering wheel with unique stitching and real wood accent.
Inside, there is plenty of room for your equipment, cargo, and passengers. For those chilly mornings, your passengers will have the comfort of 2nd-row bucket seats.
Perhaps you have a large family and want a spacious vehicle to move them around. If fuel economy and road performance are also a concern, the 2016 Ford Explorer perfectly meets those requirements and is available from El Paso, Texas Ford dealerships.
