The Ford Explorer has long been one of the best-selling SUVs in the market. A capable tow vehicle and off-roader, it also offers the generous interior space, comfort features and safety technologies necessary for day-to-day tasks. For 2016, an all-new Explorer is introduced, raising the bar even higher with an improved 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine, more advanced technologies and a luxurious Platinum series.

The 7-passenger Explorer is available in both front- and four-wheel drive configurations, with a choice of five trim levels: Base, XLT, Sport, Limited and the new Platinum series. A 290-hp 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine is standard on Base, XLT and Limited trims, and a new, more efficient 285-hp 2.3-liter turbocharged Ecoboost four-cylinder engine with direct fuel injection is available. Sport and Platinum trims boast a 365-hp 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6. All engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission with manual mode; 4x4 models also get a user-friendly terrain management system. Trim-dependent standard equipment includes: 18- and 20-inch aluminum wheels, dual panel moonroof, hands-free power liftgate, fog lights, LED headlamps, automatic high-beams, dual-zone automatic climate control, leather upholstery, heated/ventilated front seats, heated rear seats, Intelligent Access with push-button start and front/rear cameras with washers, along with satellite/HD radio, voice-activated navigation and Ford's SYNC communications and entertainment system. Standard safety features consist of AdvanceTrac with Roll Stability Control and Curve Control function, traction control and anti-lock disc brakes, as well as Ford's MyKey owner control feature and seven airbags. Industry-first second-row inflatable seatbelts are available, packaged with a Blind Spot Information System (BLIS) with Cross-Traffic Alert; additional standard/optional technologies include Lane Departure Warning & Lane Keep Assist and Adaptive Cruise Control with Collision Warning, along with enhanced Active Park Assist with perpendicular park assist, park-out assist and semi-automatic parallel parking.

The Ford Explorer gets a complete redesign for 2016. Interior and exterior styling has been enhanced, the chassis has been retuned, and innovative technologies are showcased. A new Platinum series also debuts, heightening luxury with multicontour seats, up-level leather upholstery, aluminum and wood trim elements, and an exclusive 500-watt Sony audio system with Live Acoustics and Clear Phase technology.

Introduction

The 2016 Ford Explorer is the 25th anniversary model.How time flies.We remember when the Explorer was a newborn.It was 174 inches long and weighed 3800 pounds.Today it's 24 inches longer and 620 pounds heavier.In the beginning, its V6 had 155 horsepower and got 17 mpg; today it has nearly twice as much horsepower and gets 20 mpg.Then it had a 5-speed manual, now a 6-speed automatic.Then it was rear-wheel drive, now it's front-wheel drive.There's no comparison, safety-wise.Today's Explorer seats seven and can tow 5000 pounds.And believe it or not, the 2016 Explorer is $3500 less expensive in today's dollars.

For its silver anniversary, the 2016 Explorer gets a makeover of its front and rear end, including LED headlamps and taillights; retuned suspension and electric power steering; some new features, and more quiet inside.

The blowout over the years has been in efficient horsepower, with Ford's four- and six-cylinder twin-turbo EcoBoost engines.For 2016 there's a new 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder that makes 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque.The base engine is a 3.5-liter V6 making 290 horsepower and 220 pound-feet.There's also a killer EcoBoost twin-turbo V6 that makes a 365 hp and 350 lb-ft.

Today's Explorer handles everything a family can throw at it.It does everything we want a mid-sized crossover to do.It welcomes a lot of people with their stuff, comfortably and efficiently.The base V6 rates an EPA-estimated 17/24/20 mpg City/Highway/Combined; the four-cylinder twin turbo EcoBoost gets 19/28/22, and the 365-hp V6 gets 15/22/18.Notice that's still better fuel mileage than the original 1991 Explorer, while delivering 135 percent more power.

Explorer earns five stars overall in NHTSA crash tests, and a Top Safety Pick from IIHS.It would have gotten an extra +, but it only scored Marginal in the insurance industry's new frontal crash test into a pole.
