2016 Used Ford Explorer: Significant Change, Steady Design

Used Ford Explorer Sound Ford Renton Seattle WashingtonThe Ford Explorer has been around for a long time (from 1990 to be exact). And from its inception until 2015, it hasn’t had to change all that much. After all — why reinvent the wheel?
 
Yet, to keep up with shifting consumer demands, some changes are inevitably ushered in. The 2016 Ford Explorer did exactly this, providing a significant upgrade while still retaining the steady and reliable design that you know and trust.
 
Far from a complete redesign (refer to the wheel adage above), the 2016 Ford Explorer brings an upgraded EcoBoost four-cylinder engine, better style with more contoured front and rear ends, and some highly anticipated technology updates.
 
The Engine:
 
The 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine packs a whopping 280 horsepower and 310lb-ft of torque, making it the strongest and most durable iteration of the vehicle yet. With optional all-wheel drive, the maximum towing capabilities come in at 3000 pounds — or in layman’s terms, a lot of power.
 
The Style:
 
The classic sharp cornered box-on-wheels look has become all but obsolete in the modern era, and the softer lines and cleaner edges of the 2016 Ford Explorer live up to the times. Recently, independent car reviewer The Car Connection gave the 2016 model an 8/10 in style points.
 
The Technology:
 
The tailored interior doesn’t change too much from previous models, but onboard technological features such as Bluetooth audio, touch screen control panel, a multi-function remote for the trunk, hatch, door and tailgate, power everything, and loads of new safety features make for a convenient, secure, and sophisticated ride.
 
All together, these updates strike a perfect balance of power and style.
