Ford has revealed the 2015 Explorer with new appearance package.
Scheduled to go on sale later this month, the updated 2015 Ford Explorer boasts of 18-inch aluminum wheels, a Class III trailer tow package (on the Explorer Sport) and three new exterior colors including Bronze Fire Metallic Tinted Clearcoat, Caribou Metallic and Magnetic Metallic.
“Customers asked for more and this is our answer,” said Matt Zuehlk, Ford Explorer brand manager. “We know consumers love the look of Explorer Sport; with this package, you get that for Explorer XLT. It looks bold and rugged, and offers impressive technology at a surprising value.”
XLT variants can also be equipped with a new appearance package that includes body-color door handles, black plastic body cladding and 20-inch aluminum wheels. The crossover also has Magnetic metallic paint grille, mirrors and tailgate.
The package also adds heated leather / suede seats, contrast stitching, special floor mats and an auto-dimming rearview mirror. The package also features technology upgrades such as SYNC® with MyFord Touch®, two 4.2-inch color LCD screens in the instrument cluster, an 8-inch color LCD touch screen in the Meteorite Black center stack, two USB ports and an SD card reader.
“Explorer contributes more to Ford’s millennial sales and share growth than any other passenger car or utility vehicle in the lineup,” said Erich Merkle, U.S. sales analyst for Ford. “This is more proof Explorer attracts all types of customers with great looks and third-row versatility.”
