2016 Ford Explorer Platinum Arriving at Dealers
A new range-topping Platinum edition is being added to the Explorer lineup for 2016, bringing new levels of luxury not yet seen in a Ford SUV. The Ford Explorer Platinum will be a combination of the performance features from the Explorer Sport and the comfort-focused features of the Limited trim level.
The biggest upgrades come to the interior of the new Explorer Platinum, with new multi-adjustable front seats wrapped in Nirvana leather with micro-perforation and an all-new 500-watt premium Sony Audio System with home audio system features like Live Acoustics and Clear Phase technologies.
Interior materials are all higher quality, with real aluminum and ash wood surfaces on the door and instrument panels, a wood and leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and a 10-inch digital display in the instrument cluster. Like the seats, Nirvana leather wraps the door bolsters and trim, console armrests and instrument panel.
The Explorer Platinum also comes with a variety of smart and convenient technology, including rain-sensing wipers, parallel park assist and a lane-keeping system. A new enhanced active park assist system can even help drivers back their vehicle into a perpendicular spot.
Exterior changes on the Explorer Platinum include LED headlamps with signature lighting surrounds, a standard dual-panel moonroof, silver-painted front and rear skid plates and 20-inch wheels with machined faces and dark painted pockets.
All Explorer Platinum models come equipped with a powerful 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 with 365 hp paired to a six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission. Also included is an intelligent four-wheel-drive setup with Terrain Management System for excellent on and off-road performance on virtually any terrain.
