Ever since the days of the Model A (yes, that came before the Model T!), Ford has arguably been the singular leader in the automobile space. They continue that grand tradition well into the new millennium with the 2016 Explorer Limited, a machine that carves its own space into the mid-size crossover segment. Grand performance and safety await!
This recipe for success starts with a power-packed engine. This is a twin-turbo 3.5L V6 that excels with 365 horses and 350-lb.-ft. of torque, putting the crossovers on the road on notice. Speed and acceleration aplenty are here at your command! Also, the drivetrain holds a wonderful six-speed automatic transmission that will make shifts nearly imperceptible.
The venerable Detroit automaker has incorporated as much sophistication as you could hope for into this 2016 Explorer Limited, outfitting it with extremely well-regarded safety specifications. Standard features include electronically heated side-view mirrors that enhance visibility during winter weather and a backup camera that highlights obstacles in your path. Further, the usual complement of front and rear airbags are accompanied by side-curtain inflatables that automatically deploy if a rollover is detected.
