2016 Ford Explorer Pricing

Ford Explorer Model Summary

The Explorer is roomy, with a livable third row seat, but overall it trails the competition. Handling is ungainly, the ride is not entirely settled, and the V6 powertrain is unrefined. For its 2016 model year freshening, Ford gave the Explorer new optional safety systems, a 2.3-liter EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, revised front and rear fascias, and a new Platinum top trim level. Also new are front and rear 180-degree cameras that have a wash function to keep the lens clean. Lane-keeping assist and adaptive cruise control are optional. The MyFordTouch system now includes redundant knobs and buttons for those folks who complained about unresponsive on-screen haptic touch controls.
