Interior Features of the 2016 Ford Explorer

Performance of the 2016 Ford Explorer

The old 2-liter EcoBoost 4-cylinder is gone, now replaced with a 2.3-liter turbocharged 4-cylinder that gives you 280 horsepower and a torque of 310 pound-feet. You can enjoy this available engine on the base, XLT, or Limited trims and also pair it with all-wheel drive, the first time this is an option. If you prefer to stick to the standard powertrain, the Explorer will give you 290 horsepower via a 3.5-liter V6. Either way, you get a 6-speed automatic. Driving the 2016 Explorer Sport or Platinum gives you a 3.5-liter EcoBoost twin-turbocharged V6 with 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet. The Explorer gets 20 mpg* combined with the base V6 while the turbocharged 4-cylinder gets 22 mpg* combined. Although the Ford Explorer was designed to excel on the road, you can still take it off road or through rough weather thanks to the Terrain Management System. The Explorer can also tow up to 5,000 pounds, a truly useful amount perfect for your boat or trailer.
