2016 Ford Explorer Release Date
The Los Angeles Auto Show took place last month and many new vehicles debuted. It’s always an exciting event because the public gets to see what vehicles are coming next year. This year was particularly exciting because the new Ford Explorer was revealed. The Ford Explorer is celebrating its 25 anniversary so it’s very fitting that a new model would come out to celebrate this milestone. The 2016 Ford Explorer release date is expected to be in the summer of 2015. Let’s take a closer look at this remodeled edition.
The exterior of the 2016 Ford Explorer is redesigned with special attention to detail. It has a new front bumper, different headlights, a redesigned front grille and different taillights. The interior is also improved with higher quality materials and more attention to design. The 2016 Ford Explorer also has an all-new trim level called Platinum. This model comes with a dual panel moon roof, silver painted skid plates and LED headlights. The interior has Nirvana leather seats, a heated leather steering wheel, aluminum accents, a digital instrument cluster and 500-watt Sony audio system. It also comes with a powerful 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine that can tow up to 5,000 pounds.
The 2016 Ford Explorer comes with a much more powerful EcoBoost than the previous model. Even if you don’t go for the Platinum edition, you still get a powerful engine with the 2.3 liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine which has replaced the 2.0 EcoBoost. This new EcoBoost engine will produce at least 270 Horsepower and 300 lb-ft of torque. The 2.3 EcoBoost engine is perfect for long highway commutes or for towing across the country.
Overall the 2016 Ford Explorer has gotten a makeover that offers a more luxurious and powerful ride. It also received a few tweaks to make existing features like the park-assist and safety systems even better. You can look forward to the 2016 Ford Explorer hitting the Sanders Ford lot in the summer of 2015. We can’t wait to see what this new Ford Explorer is capable of and how it compares to the 2015 Ford Explorer! Check back here for more new Ford vehicle news!
