With each year comes a promise of innovation. Ford pushes its platforms down the production line, fusing them with engine enhancements and drivetrain advancements - perpetually tweaking the designs until they prove perfect.
That quest for perfection never ends, however. Instead the brand constantly reinvents its own standards, propelling every marque toward success - and the Explorer is no exception. Though the 2015 model delivered strong sales and steady critical acclaim, Ford now seeks to (once again) redefine the sport utility market, and this has led to a series of changes for 2016.
According to AutoTrader, the differences between the 2015 and 2016 Explores are subtle… but vital:
Exterior: The 2016 Explorer boasts a new fascia, with an upgraded grille and square fenders. Larger wheels have also been added to create a rugged look.
Interior: Ford transformed the Explorer’s interior, adding a sleek center control stack and supple leather materials for a sophisticated effect.
Mechanicals: To improve the Explorer’s performance, a turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost engine was added. This delivers 270 HP, improving upon the 2015 model’s original 240.
Technology: The 2016 Explorer receives a suite of tech improvements, including LED headlights, park-assistance software, and a SONY sound system to improve overall driver interfacing,
Through these changes, Ford elevates the Explorer to the next-generation of utility - creating a worthy successor to its 2015 platform.
