Perfect your adventures.
Capably outgoing. Technologically advanced. Beautifully refined. The new 2016 Explorer is outfitted
to elevate your getaways. Itâ€™s more aerodynamic, more luxurious and even easier to park than its
predecessor. Go further. In Ford Explorer â€“ over 25 years, more than 7 million adventures and counting.1
1 Class is Large Utilities. 2Available feature. 3EPA-estimated rating: 19 city/28 hwy/22 combined mpg, 2.3L EcoBoost, FWD. Actual mileage will vary. 4Tested with 93-octane fuel. 5When properly
equipped. 6Remember that even advanced technology cannot overcome the laws of physics. Itâ€™s always possible to lose control of a vehicle due to inappropriate driver input for the conditions.
Get going. Your choice of 3 ways.
Go with the 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 for 290 hp â€“ unsurpassed
in its class1 among standard V6 engines. Go with the 2.3LÂ
EcoBoostÂ®2 for an EPA-estimated rating of 28 hwy mpg,
which even the hybrid competition in its class canâ€™t beat.3
Or go for the spirited 365-hp4 3.5L EcoBoost, standard
on Sport and the all-new Platinum.
Tow up to 5,000 lbs.5 when you equip Explorer with
the Class III Trailer Tow Package (standard on Sport and
Platinum) and either its 3.5L Ti-VCT or 3.5L EcoBoost
engine. You can also pair the new Class II Trailer Tow
Package with the 2.3L EcoBoost for up to 3,000 lbs.5
of towing capability.
To help you maintain control of both the vehicle and your
trailer, standard trailer sway control automatically reduces
engine speed and selectively applies the brakes if trailer
sway is detected.6
You can shift gears for yourself with the sport-inspired
paddle shifters on the standard 6-speed SelectShiftÂ®
automatic transmission. Or leave it to Explorer.
Substantially more powerful than the engine it replaces,
the turbocharged, direct-injection 2.3L EcoBoost gives
Explorer 280 hp4 and 310 lb.-ft.
