Ford has been pushing the boundaries of what consumers can expect from the mid-sized sports utility vehicle segment for years now. A primary factor in this excellence is a supreme dedication to off-road performance, which the 2016 Explorer achieves more effortlessly than ever via its Terrain Management System (TMS).
Safely traversing virtually any surface is as easy as twisting the front cabin’s selection knob to choose its four different settings: normal (for everyday concrete and asphalt), smud (snow and mud mixture), snow, and sand. When engaged in any of these modes, the system controls the engine, transmission, and brakes automatically to enable smooth sailing no matter how slick the surface.
Additionally, Hill Descent Control functionality makes its way to the 2016 Explorer. It works while driving down a steep grade. Normally, under these conditions, consumers modulate the descent as best they can. However, this functionality takes the frustrating manual pumping of the brake pedal out of the equation by automatically handling the decline for you. You only need to push the activation button on the center of the TMS knob and you’ll be guided to safety.
