Ford Explorer Review for 2016 Model Year

The Ford Explorer has been one of the most popular family SUVs in the U.S. since it first debuted 25 years ago. This model year, the Explorer gets some nice updates that are sure to continue its dominance as the go-to family SUV near Atlanta. Keep reading our 2016 Ford Explorer review below for all the details on what's new for this model year.

For 2016, the Ford Explorer will come in five trim levels: base, XLT, Limited, Sport and the all-new Platinum. The base trim is equipped with automatic LED headlights, cruise control, rear climate controls, Ford's SYNC system and a 4.2-inch display screen. Choose the next-level XLT trim and you'll add foglights, rear parking sensors, keyless entry, satellite ratio and upgraded brakes.

If you're looking for a bit more luxury on your 2016 Ford Explorer near Atlanta, we recommend choosing the Limited trim, which comes with leather upholstery, 20-inch wheels, a front-view camera, an 8-inch touchscreen and a navigation system. The Explorer Sport is also a fun choice if you're looking for a sport-tuned suspension on your SUV, as well as unique interior details and custom 20-inch wheels. New for 2016 is the Explorer Platinum, which provides drivers with excellent luxury features, including a dual-panel sunroof, upgraded leather upholstery, and a gorgeous aluminum and wood interior trim.

Under the hood, look for three distinct powertrains: a 3.5-liter V6, a turbocharged 3.5-liter V6 and a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder. The standard V6 is available on the first three trims, while the Sport and Platinum receive the turbocharged V6. Drivers looking for a more efficient engine can opt for the four-cylinder, which increases the truck's fuel economy.

Many 2016 Ford Explorer reviews were very impressed by the SUV's safety equipment that includes front-seat side airbags, traction and stability control, and side curtain airbags. The truck also comes standard with Ford's MyKey system, which allows parents to specify vehicle speed and stereo volume for their teen drivers.
