Ford has done so many improvements and upgrades of its vehicles lately, but it seems that Explorer was neglected. To tell you the truth it looks a little bit outdated but that doesn’t mean it has nothing to offer. Ford faced many complaints about the Explorer thus they finally decided to take the Explorer under the knife. This means the 2016 Ford Explorer is coming with several important modifications.
The 2016 Ford Explorer is going to be built up on the entirely new platform. This means new Explorer is going to be more attractive hence we can expect better sales figures next year. Changes are not subtle and they are clearly visible. Ford finally lent an ear to their customers thus we believe new Explorer will be more attractive than before. It is true that tastes are different but you just cannot be indifferent when you look at the brand-new 2015 Ford Explorer.
2016 Ford Explorer Engine
Ford decided to offer two engine units for the Explorer this year. There will be two Eco-Boosts for the first time ever since this car was released. The least powerful option is the 2.3-liter EcoBoost which comes with an output of 270 HP and 300 pound-feet of torque. In our opinion this is just perfect but Ford prepared the second option for more demanding customers.
The second choice is the 2.7-liter EcoBoost, more powerful but with worse fuel consumption. This engine was originally used in the F150 and it hasn’t received any complaints. It can produce 350 HP and 400 pound-feet of torque. It is way more powerful than the first unit but even the 2.7l will deliver the goods so we recommend that one. The only available driving system is four-wheel drive and it will be mated to six-speed automatic transmission system.
Interior and Exterior of new 2016 Ford Explorer
When you look at the pictures you may be disappointed because your expectations were greater, but bear in mind that these are the biggest modifications of the 2015 Ford Explorer in the recent years. The most visible changes are at the front, where there are new headlights and slightly modified grille. We are going to see a new front bumper, while the rear one should stay the same. There are some changes at the back, as well, especially exhaust pipes and taillights.
Generally there will be more improvements in the cabin than outside. The 2016 Ford Explorer will be equipped with triple-zone automatic control, satellite navigation system and top-notch audio system. It won’t be more spacious but engineers found a way to provide more room for legs thus it will be much more comfortable than its predecessor. All in all, new Explorer is a car that will make their owners proud.
