2016 Ford Explorer Platinum
Rugged, reliable, versatile, and luxurious, the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum is the pinnacle of the Explorer line-up. Featuring the latest in safety features and entertainment technology, the Platinum provides a great set of comforts and conveniences that makes for the perfect family vehicle.
Ultimate in Luxury and Conveniences
The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum has been redesigned for the new model year, emphasizing the rugged features with an updated front end. Satin chrome highlights the high-set, mesh grill with the blue Ford oval in the center. The lower front end is muscular and blocky, a nod to the pickup origins of the Explorer. Exterior lighting is blocky and truck-like, keeping with the angular sheet metal lines and upright stance. A roofline spoiler helps to elongate the roof. Satin-chrome finish is featured heavily across the exterior, including on the door handles, the liftgate applique, sideview mirror caps, front and rear skid plate elements, and more. A satin-chrome roof rack is perfect for securing large cargo and equipment such as kayaks, bicycles, and the like. 20-inch bright machined aluminum wheels with tarnished dark-painted pockets lend class to the exterior, and go well with the satin-chrome finishes. Privacy glass throughout the passenger cabin keeps prying eyes out, while a standard dual-panel moonroof lets in some extra sunlight. Ford's patented foot-activated, hands-free power liftgate makes it a breeze to load cargo in and out without having to use your hands to open the gate.
Seating for seven is swathed in Medium Soft Ceramic Nirvana, featuring quilting and perforated inserts. Front seats are heated and cooled with 10-way power adjustment, while the second row features heated outboard seats. Second-row heated bucket seats are also available if you'd rather not have a bench in the middle. Over 1,000 millimeters of head and leg room in the first two rows of seating makes the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum one of the roomiest in the class, and there's plenty of cargo room as well - up to 2,314 litres maximum. Seating is surrounded with aluminum, Brown Ash Swirl, and leather trim, including leather-wrapped door armrests and rollovers. Dual-zone automatic temperature control with rear auxiliary climate control means that everyone can be comfortable at their own temperature. Ford's SYNC with MyFord Touch is voice-activated, running through an 8-inch colour LCD touch screen on the centre stack. It has a navigation system, a 500-watt Sony premiere sound system, USB and auxiliary ports, and SiriusXM capabilities. Thanks to the Bluetooth connectivity, you never have to take your hands off the wheel to make a phone call, change the music, or get directions from the navigation system. If you need something to keep rear seat passengers entertained, dual headrest DVD by INVISION is available.
Powerful, Tow-Ready Performance
At its highest trim level, the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum also features a high-performance powertrain. It is four-wheel drive only with the 3.5-litre EcoBoost engine and a six-speed SelectShift automatic. This provides power on the highway as well as great capabilities in urban environments, hauling a full load of passengers and cargo. Thanks to the standard Class III Trailer Tow Package, the Explorer can tow up to 2,268 kilograms.
