Ford is bringing big upgrades to the 2015 Ford Explorer, as the manufacturer readies new changes across its whole line-up. From the all-new redesigned 2015 Mustang, to the powerful 2015 F-150, Ford is getting serious about staying atop of the competition. Consumers looking for a roomy third-row seater should keep the 2015 Ford Explorer in mind, as it offers excellent comfort and fuel efficiency. Let’s look at what the new Explorer has to offer.
The new Ford Explorer offers three engine options, all of which deliver outstanding fuel economy and power. The base model is a 3.5 liter V6 with 290 horsepower, giving drivers enough muscle for a fun ride, smooth acceleration and quick lane changes. Next is the 2.0 liter Ecoboost, a surprisingly powerful four-cylinder engine that delivers 240 horsepower. Thanks to its direct injection and turbo-charger, the 2.0 Ecoboost has claimed the best-in-class fuel economy with 23 combined mpg. The 2015 Ford Explorer is also available in the top of the line 3.5 liter Ecoboost: a six-cylinder beast with 365 horsepower, standard Intelligent 4WD and a twin turbo-charger.
2015 Explorer Trims
For the new 2015 Ford Explorer the manufacturer is introducing the Sport edition, a new trim level that redefines the term “fully loaded”. For starters, the Sport trim is the only way to get V6 Ecoboost goodness and standard Intelligent 4WD, which constantly monitors several driving factors to give you the best torque on each wheel. Aside from the leather trimmed seating surfaces, rear-view camera and reverse sensing system, the Explorer Sport boasts a sport-tuned suspension and PowerFold third row seat. The last option allows consumers to fold down the last row of seats with the push of a button. An additional equipment package upgrades your 2015 Explorer Sport to inflatable rear seat belts, voice-activated navigation system, heated/cooled driver and passenger seats and a power lift gate.
Redesigned 2015 Body
With the introduction of the Sport trim, the 2015 Explorer refresh focuses on a more youthful and sportier look. As part of the new package, the new Explorer gains 20-in machined aluminum wheels, a black-body side cladding, roof rack rails and an Explorer hood badge. The interior also gets a revamp with new leather trimmed seats with Miko suede inserts, two LCD screens, two USB ports and a card reader.
