Few new items excite the automotive world like the mention of a redesigned model; even fewer news items excite these individuals like the redesign of a model that is universally beloved, envied and copied by competitors. That’s the story with the 2016 Ford Explorer near Huntsville AL, which returns for the new model year with a facelift, scores of new features, new powertrains, and no shortage of crafty little elements that promise to set drivers abuzz. A model that has been at the forefront of the SUV conversation for over two-and-a-half decades shows, with a masterful redesign of its core elements, that its status atop the crossover SUV market is as secure as ever.
For the 2016 model year, the Explorer offers three outstanding power platforms for Alabama drivers. The standard offering is a 3.5L V6 that distances itself from the competition with a powerful performance profile and outstanding fuel economy. Up next for buyers is a 2.3L EcoBoost four-cylinder, which replaces the outgoing 2.0L engine to offer drivers additional punch and efficiency. Finally topping out the lineup is a 3.6L EcoBoost V6, a truly menacing performer that allows the Explorer to tow up to 5,000 pounds with ease.
All of this capability under the hood only serves to amplify what is already obvious to anyone who looks upon the 2016 Ford Explorer: that the stylistic flourishes and innovative technology, which we’ll talk about next, are second to none as well.
Perhaps more than any competing model, the 2015 Ford Explorer boasts new tech and safety features that must be seen to be believed. The available enhanced active park assist allows users to employ ultrasonic sensors to park nearly any conceivable position. Additionally, the now-available front 180-degree camera actually sees around corners and down alleys to help you see oncoming vehicles in ways that were previously thought impossible. Factor in the newly updated Sync with MyFord Touch, and drivers can connect to the road and outside world better than ever before.
Also now available in the 2016 Ford Explorer is the all-new Platinum trim, which enhances the experience even further. A new chrome grille and foot-operated rear liftgate accentuate the exterior, while satin chrome trimmings throughout the spacious cabin take care of work inside.
