2016 Ford Explorer West Chicago, IL


The 2016 Ford Explorer is a more sophisticated vehicle than it used to be. A former wagon, the 2016 Explorer has a smooth body with plenty of features to keep you entertained. What was once a boring vehicle, has transformed itself into a diverse and practical SUV. There are many different aspects of the Explorer that we enjoy including the design, performance and safety features.

Design, Performance, and Safety Features

Sharp lines and clean corners is how we would describe the trim of the 2016 Ford Explorer. The Explorer also features a tall body with a sleek design that makes it appear more like a family crossover, rather than an older wagon. Overall the exterior kept a lot of the authority from the traditional SUV in its look, and designed a more stylish vehicle. The interior of the Explorer is filled with many curves and metallic plastic, which gives the cabin a refined look. Ford says the interior is similar to that in the F-150, which provides owners with excellence and quality.

The base Ford Explorer comes fitted with a 3.5-liter V6 engine. This particular model is capable of producing 290 horsepower and 255 pound-feet of torque. This engine looks better on paper than the former V8, which came with the prior edition. There is nothing to be lost in acceleration either. The V6 is capable of 0-60 mph in about 8.5 seconds, and accelerating out of stops is incredible with most models having a sport-shift mode for quick throttle responses. The performance of the Explorer is exciting for crossover seekers.

Finally, to compliment the design and performance, we will mention the outstanding safety features. The Explorer comes with an overall five star rating from the NHTSA. It earned five stars in every subcategory except for one. When it comes to the features there is a standard rearview camera, and a MyKey system which allows you to set volume and speed controls for kids who drive the vehicle. The Explorer also has a special curve control, which adjusts the throttle to brake for incoming corners. Overall the 2016 Ford Explorer is designed to provide crossover enthusiasts with an option that is much more than an SUV.
