While it is roomy and has a livable third-row seat, the Explorer still trails the competition. Handling is ungainly, the ride is not entirely settled, and the non-turbo V6 powertrain is unrefined. For its 2016 model year freshening, Ford gave the Explorer new optional safety systems, a 2.3-liter turbo 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 MyFord Touch system now includes redundant knobs and buttons to compensate for the unresponsive onscreen touch-sensitive buttons and controls.
