Freshly updated for the 2016 model year, the Ford Explorer Limited improves an already upscale offering, earning an “A” rating from Edmunds.
Why did Edmunds fancy the mid-size SUV so greatly? The reviewer was understandably infatuated with a menagerie of high-tech interior features and a refined driving experience that puts the vehicle at the top of their class rankings.
Specifically, the online car resource found the family-friendly automotive provides a comfortable ride. Moreover, the newly enhanced automated parking system can now pull into and out of perpendicular parking spaces, which serves as an impressive addition to existing parallel parking assistance. Additionally, added USB ports throughout the cabin serve to placate even the most technologically hungry teenagers, ensuring their mobile devices always have enough juice.

While the ride may be comfortable, this SUV can get-up-and-go when needed, too. The 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine featured in the 2016 Explorer offers more “grunt” than the outgoing 2.0-liter variant, while also offering compatibility with all-wheel drive—something the old EcoBoost couldn’t manage. And for those looking for even more bountiful power, a turbocharged V6 remains a welcome option.
