Beauty That's More Than Skin Deep.
The beauty of the redesigned front, rear, roofline and wheels is just the start of what makes the 2016 Explorer a standout in its class.
Enhanced Active Park Assist.
Available enhanced active park assist* adds the ability for Explorer to help you with perpendicular parking too. Utilizing the vehicle's 12 ultrasonic sensors, Explorer will scan for suitable parking spaces, and will assist in backing the vehicle into the spot.** All you have to do is shift, accelerate and brake, and Explorer will take care of the steering. While driving slowly near parking spots, simply activate this feature* and it scans for available parking spots. Ultrasonic sensors measure the distance to the curb and other parked cars. Once a suitable spot is identified, you're signaled to stop and accept the system's assistance. Just control the shifting, accelerating and braking.
Class-Exclusive Available PowerFold® Third-Row Seat.
The available PowerFold® third-row seat is a class-exclusive feature.* At the touch of a button, it folds flat for additional cargo room and a level load floor. In the upright position, it comfortably seats two passengers. Standard on Limited, Sport and Platinum.
Heated Steering Wheel.
Driving with your hands on a cold steering wheel is a thing of the past with the heat feature, standard in the Explorer Limited and Platinum and available in Sport. The steering wheel can warm up from -4°F to 74°F within five minutes and maintain a temperature of up to 90°F. And no matter the time of year, you can enjoy the comfort of heated or cooled front seats.*
Three Rows. Spacious Seating for Up to Seven.
The Explorer can carry up to seven passengers. The second row features a 60/40 split-fold-flat bench and available bucket seats and console, while the third row has a 50/50 split-folding seat with generous passenger space. Behind the third row, there are up to 21 cubic feet of cargo volume. For more cargo space, up to 81.7 cubic feet, fold the second and third rows for a flat load surface.
The Explorer can tow up to 5,000 lbs. when properly equipped. Power comes from its standard 3.5L Ti-VCT V6 or available 3.5L EcoBoost® V6. The available Class III Trailer Tow Package, required for towing, includes an engine oil cooler, wiring harness and tow hitch. The Explorer offers features that make towing easy. The standard rear view camera* provides a video image on the center console screen of the area behind you, with screen guides that help you align your vehicle when hooking up a trailer. Hill start assist* helps keep the vehicle from rolling backward when you're on a slope or hill. The trailer sway control feature, integrated with standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control,™ detects trailer sway, automatically adjusts engine speed and applies asymmetric braking to help counter it.
