When you go to a dealership and look through available inventory, the long list of options and itemized additions on the posted spec sheet can appear daunting. Everyone wants to know they’re receiving a lot for their money but the most important aspects of a vehicle can sometimes get lost in the shuffle. We’re going to make it easy on you by getting down to brass tacks and discussing two keys to the appeal of the 2016 Explorer Limited: safety and performance.
This SUV is a star in the manner in which it provides for the security of your passengers. Front and rear inflatables are joined by side-curtain airbags that may literally save lives during rollovers. A rearview camera is standard, offering a clear view of any obstructions to the back of your machine. Further, the side mirrors are electronically heated to beat the deep freeze of winter—and they’re power adjustable, to boot!
Under the hood of the 2016Explorer Limited is a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 that will you give you thrills and chills. It’s a goose-bumps-inducing experience as a function of the available 365 horses and 350-lb.-ft. of torque—more than enough to put other Seattle-area crossovers to shame. Also, the six-speed transmission makes for smooth, automatic shifting.
