2016 Ford Explorer styling
Familiar look of the classic Explorer crossovers will be kept for new model. Even though there are some major changes, you will be able to recognize this SUV with its familiar appearance. However, that doesn’t mean 2016 Ford Explorer won’t get some cosmetic modifications to improve and modernize its look. Overall dimension will be the same. There is still room for up to 7 passengers in three-row seating layout in the cabin. Exterior is refreshed with new squared grille and new lights. We are sure that car will have at least three or four trim levels, as many other Ford’s crossovers. Certainly, Platinum edition will top the class with most of the expensive features offered built into that vehicle.
2016 Ford Explorer engine
There will be few engines offered for all buyers planning to shop 2016 Ford Explorer. Current engine is going to be carried over, so 3.5- V6 is base option. Power is set at around 300 hp and 250 lb-ft of torque. EcoBoost unit is second powertrain. It is 2.3-l four-cylinder engine with 270 hp and 300 lb-ft of torque. We expect the Platinum model of new 2016 Explorer to get special drivetrain. It could be twin-turbo 3.5-liter V6, with highest output numbers from entire segment, 365 hp and 350 lb-ft of torque. A 6-speed auto gearbox is standard for all types of motors and 4-wheel drive is not standard for all trims. Ford offers few drive modes for this off-roader.
