The Big Blue Oval brand has long been a sensational automobile manufacturer. Henry Ford changed the lives of Americans all around the country with his release of the gasoline-propelled car and, since then, the advances made have been tremendous. Flash forward to 2016 and we now have a vehicle in the Explorer XLT that is a performance wonder.
Six-cylinder engines rarely generate the kind of raw power seen here. This crossover delights via its 3.5L engine unit which produces a stunning 290 HP at 6,400 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 255-lb.-ft. of torque. The open roads of Seattle and Tacoma will be calling your name—and you’ll have everything at your disposal to heed that call.
Of course, the greatness of the 2016 Explorer XLT isn’t limited to its engine. Premium cloth trim on the seats represents an upgrade over the lower trim and driver lumbar support is a fantastic addition that will negate the potential for stiffness in your lower back. The SiriusXM AM/FM/satellite radio will make your entire journey more enjoyable, and parking assist is an excellent convenience feature for when you arrive at your destination.
