Ford Explorer 2015 Model Uncovered


Ford’s 7-seater crossover from North America has been refreshed for the 2015 model year with a new sports-inspired appearance pack which includes a handful of visual touches, as well as a few comfort and technological upgrades. Starting later this June, the XLT model can be further enhanced from its factory credentials by adding the aforementioned appearance package, which makes the Ford Explorer look like the Sport variant without compromising ride comfort or other features.

20-inch machined aluminum rims with painted pockets, mirror caps and front grille painted in Magnetic Metallic, black body-side cladding and roof rack rails and a lift gate appliqué give the SUV a far more striking visual identity than the standard XLT model. So what’s there as far as the cabin is concerned?

Well, highlights include front seats wrapped in leather and Miko suede inserts, also adorned with visually pleasant contrast stitching. Matching floor mats complete the interior look of the all-new appearance pack. The package also comes with technological upgrades such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with two USB ports for your MP3s and an SD memory card reader.

With a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® V6 engine making at least 350 horsepower and four-wheel drive with a Terrain Management System™, Ford Explorer Sport delivers enhanced on-road dynamics with sporty design cues inside and out.

The Ford Explorer still features a paddle-shifted six-speed SelectShift Automatic™ transmission with a unique 3.16 to 1 final drive ratio to provide the balance of responsive acceleration and economical low-rpm cruising for better fuel efficiency. The chassis also has been specially reinforced, making Ford Explorer Sport stiffer and improving its handling.


The Ford Explorer also brings a solid-mounted electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) rack with a faster ratio, providing more responsiveness to drivers both on-road and off. Ford’s newest SUV comes standard with larger brakes for shorter stopping distances and better performance while towing. Ford Explorer Sport also has received special terrain management settings for tackling sandy, rutted mud and hill descent.
