2016 Ford Explorer officially unveiled image

Ford has officially pulled the wraps off the 2015 Explorer ahead of its public debut which will take place in Los Angeles, in just a few hours.

The 25th anniversary of the Ford Explorer is currently being celebrated by the car manufacturer with a facelifted version of the model. This has received a new front bumper, different headlights and a revised front grille, along with an optimized spoiler, different taillights and several other tweaks to help it stand out from a crowd. The interior design of the model is evolutionary too and it is adopting higher quality materials.

A new range topper Platinum version of the model is also getting ready to be introduced too and this will be easily distinguishable thanks to the dual panel moon roof, the silver painted skid plates, the LED headlights or the two-tone 20-inch alloy wheels. The interior design of the model is coming with Nirvana leather seats, with a heated leather steering wheel with wood inserts, brushed aluminum accents, a digital instrument cluster, a brushed aluminum Ford emblem on the steering wheel and a 500-watt Sony audio system, amongst others.

The 2016 Ford Explorer has a 2.3 liter four-cylinder EcoBoost engine, from the new generation of the Mustang, which has replaced the 2.0 liter EcoBoost. This will be producing at least 270 HP (201 kW) and 406 Nm (300 lb-ft) of torque. The updated Explorer will go on sale starting from next summer. More details on it, including the price list, will be announced close to its launch.
