The Ford Explorer has long been one of the most recognizable SUVs on the market, and one of the most beloved models from Ford. But as always, Ford automakers were not content to just let things carry on as they were. Instead, they looked at something great and wondered how they could make it better. And with the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum, we have the answer!

The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum combines the best of the more rugged Sport trim with the comfort of the more luxurious Limited trim, bringing the three-row SUV to a whole new level. The interior of the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum brings luxury that most drivers would never expect from an SUV. From the ash wood on the instrument panel to a heated steering wheel wrapped in leather, the interior of the new Ford Explorer Platinum looks and feels more like a luxury vehicle than an SUV. And this luxuriousness extends to the technology and driver assist features. The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum boasts a Sony Audio system that uses Live Acoustics and Clear Phase technology to make listening to music in your Ford SUV sound almost like hearing it live. And with park assist, a lane-keeping system, and wipers that automatically sense rain, driving this new Ford Explorer is easier than ever.

But don’t think all that comfort comes at the expense of the power and performance drivers want in any SUV. The 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum comes with a standard 3.5 liter, twin-turbo engine, and EcoBoost V6, which can provide drivers with 365 horsepower and 350 lb.-ft. of torque. And when power isn’t enough and drivers want to tackle tough terrains, the intelligent four-wheel drive system can use its Terrain Management System to reassess conditions almost instantaneously and make sure drivers have the handling and traction they need on- and off-road. So whether you are looking for luxury, strength, or a combination of the two, you can find the perfect SUV in the new Ford Explorer. Shelbyville area drivers will soon be able to find their perfect combination of comfort and performance in the 2016 Ford Explorer Platinum right here at O’Brien Ford of Shelbyville.
