Ford celebrates 25 years of Explorer and soon releases a heavily revised Explorer model. This popular SUV found more than 7 millions of owners worldwide. The car will arrive with many improved features including more power, new front bumper and redesigned front and rear headlights. The interior of 2016 Ford Explorer is also improved by using high-quality materials. Regardless of the fact that new Ford Explorer has only been refreshed, the refreshment of this sport utility vehicle will move it up market. Without a doubt, the car will reach the premium end of the market.
There are many changes under the hood of the vehicle, and the most important one is 2.3-liter 4-cylinder EcoBoost engine that replaced the previous 2.0-liter EcoBoost. The 2.3- liter cylinder EcoBoost engine enables the car to reach 270 horsepower and three hundred pound-feet of torque. This engine first appeared in 2015 Ford Mustang, and now 2016 Ford Explorer uses it as well. The usage of this engine can be quite unsafe for this kind of vehicle, because it is normally used for compact cars. However, 2.0 –liter EcoBoost did its job and achieved great results when it comes to fuel economy. However, 2.3-liter engine doesn’t promise much about fuel economy, because engine’s added oomph will cause difference of acceleration, and won’t have impact on the economy of fuel and fuel efficiency in general. Other two engines of the vehicle, an EcoBoost V6 and a base V6 remain unchanged.
The front end of the vehicle has been redesigned. Ford Explorer now gets new headlights and a slimmer grille. The 2016 Ford Explorer becomes more powerful and sophisticated thanks to the facelift that gives the car an excellent new appearance.
New 2016 Ford Explorer comes with improved door seals, and thanks to improved seals it gets a quieter cabin in all versions of the vehicle. Certain trim levels and packages also include acoustic glass. For the first time, Ford also introduces the Explorer Platinum model. The Platinum trim level is characterized by sharp chrome accents even on the Ford logo. The Platinum trim level also gets 500-watt Sony audio system. Stylish headlights and larger wheels are also some of the characteristics of Platinum model. The safety system of this refreshed vehicle is also improved. The 2016 Explorer now has better sensor and cameras. No worries, the cameras will always be clean thanks to built-in-washers for both, the front and the rear cameras of the car.
