More details on the new Ford Explorer are as follows:

1) Новый дизайн: больше "внедорожности" и спортивности


Base: 3.5-liter V6 engine with six-speed SelectShift Automatic, LED low-beam headlamps, LED taillamps, 18-inch aluminum wheels in sparkle silver paint and rearview camera with washer

XLT: 3.5-liter V6 engine with six-speed SelectShift Automatic, heavy-duty front and rear brake calipers, fog lamps, LED signature lighting, 18-inch five-spoke aluminum wheels with sparkle silver paint, leather-wrapped steering wheel and reverse sensing system

There are new door seals, and an enhanced sound package includes engine subframe mounts specially tuned to reduce vibration, as well as a specially tuned exhaust for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine. Acoustic glass is used on the windshield and front doors on XLT and higher trim levels.

Limited: 3.5-liter V6 engine with six-speed SelectShift Automatic, premium 20-inch aluminum painted wheels, ambient lighting, cargo net, heated steering wheel, multi-piece satin chrome with Rosewood film accent appliqués, perforated leather-trimmed seats, heated and cooled front row seats, 12-speaker Sony Audio System, front and rear 180-degree camera with washers, and hands-free liftgate

3) Новая салонная электроника: дисплей вместо панели приборов, новая "музыка" и управление на центральной консоли и др.


The instrument cluster features a large 10-inch digital display supported with analog displays – a first for a Ford-brand vehicle.

новая электроника: дисплей вместо приборной панели, 500-ваттная аудиосистема Sony, фронтальная и задняя камеры с омыватеем (впервые в мире), электропривод задней двери с открытием "взмахом ноги" под бампером

The Explorer also now gets Ford’s hands-free, foot-sensing liftgate opener previously found on the Escape and C-Max.

Limited: 3.5-liter V6 engine with six-speed SelectShift Automatic, premium 20-inch aluminum painted wheels, ambient lighting, cargo net, heated steering wheel, multi-piece satin chrome with Rosewood film accent appliqués, perforated leather-trimmed seats, heated and cooled front row seats, 12-speaker Sony Audio System, front and rear 180-degree camera with washers, and hands-free liftgate

Inside, the capacitive-touch center-console controls have blessedly been scrapped in favor of honest-to-goodness push buttons for the audio and climate controls. Audible cheers came up from the journalists at the unveil event when designer Chris Svensson announced this change, which he said was prompted by copious customer feedback slamming the touch-sensitive (or insensitive) previous design. Both the driver and front passenger get roomier footwells, while second-row guests get more legroom thanks to redesigned front-row seatbacks. Front and rear “smart-charging” USB ports sense the current draw demanded by your smartphone or tablet, charging devices up to twice as fast, while a 110-volt inverter offers three-prong power at the back of the center console.

4) Новая ездовая электроника: автоматическая парковка и - впервые в мире - две камеры внешнего обзора с омывателями


, и камера заднего вида с интегрированным омывателем. Сообщается, что новый Ford Explorer - первый в мире автомобиль с омывателями камер! (Помимо задней камеры, имеется и камера в переднем бампере)

The standard rearview and optional front cameras deliver 180-degree views, and both come with a feature Ford says has never before been on any production vehicle: a lens washer. Anyone who’s had to thumb-smudge road salt or highway grime off of a backup camera—or tapped a parking-garage wall after neglecting to do so—will rejoice at this feature. It’s a wonder the likes of Mercedes-Benz and Audi haven’t already implemented such a feature. The Explorer can also be had with a revamped Active Park Assistant that can now semiautonomously steer you into or out of a perpendicular parking spot (like the ones at Walmart) as well as parallel park for you. Additionally, new side sensors help you figure out whether you’re about to leave paint samples on that concrete column looming just behind your B-pillar in the parking garage.

Проходимость: без понижающей и блокировок, но с электронной системой Terrain Management

Intelligent four-wheel drive: Ready for any adventure

Explorer’s intelligent four-wheel drive with Terrain Management System™ reassesses conditions about 20 times faster than the blink of an eye, providing precise handling and traction.

Intelligent four-wheel drive continuously monitors wheel speed, throttle position and steering wheel angle to determine vehicle conditions and driver intent. The system then determines the optimal amount of front and rear torque for the given conditions to prevent slip from even occurring, which helps keep the vehicle sure-footed on virtually any terrain. In sand, grass or gravel mode, the antilock braking system changes its pulse rate, which allows material to build up in front of the wheels, acting as a doorstop of sorts to help slow momentum.

To help maintain efficiency, in most steady-state cruising conditions the new Explorer equipped with intelligent four-wheel drive seamlessly and quickly transfers torque between the front and rear wheels.

A newly refined, intelligent four-wheel-drive gauge display shows power being distributed to front and rear wheels under all conditions – from heavy four-wheel-drive system usage to when the system is not transmitting power at all – for improved efficiency.

For added convenience, the Terrain Management System automatically defaults to normal mode whenever the vehicle is started to ensure it is ready for normal driving conditions.

Using a dial located on the center console, the customer can shift on the fly, selecting one of four terrain management modes – normal, snow, sand or mud – to set how the engine, transmission, brakes and four-wheel-drive system will operate. A fifth setting is for navigating hills.

6) Новая версия Platinum: премиум-отделка, больше комфорта и 365-сильный двигатель


новая версия Platinum с максимальный оснащенеим, премиум-отделкой с натуральным деревом и 365-сильным от версии Sport

Bringing Explorer Platinum to market is a natural extension of the Explorer lineup, giving our customers even more of what they want,” said Matt Zuehlk, Ford Explorer brand manager. “There’s a market for more upscale SUVs, as 90 percent of today’s Explorer Sport buyers purchase the most expensive package available. That’s a strong signal customers are ready for Platinum.”

From new multicontour front seats wrapped in Nirvana leather with micro-perforation, to special quilted stitching used throughout, to advanced standard technologies, Platinum elevates Explorer in ways customers can see and feel.

“Platinum is the ultimate expression of refinement,” said Christopher Svensson, Ford design director, The Americas. “This is the most premium, high-quality interior we’ve ever offered on a Ford vehicle.”

The interior incorporates brushed aluminum and satin-finished ash wood in multi-piece appliqués on all door panels and the instrument panel. The wood-trimmed, leather-wrapped and heated steering wheel includes unique stitching that matches the stitching used throughout the interior.

For the first time in a production Ford vehicle, a brushed aluminum Ford oval is centered on the steering wheel.

Nirvana leather wraps the instrument panel, console armrests, quilted door bolsters and upper door trim. The instrument cluster features a large 10-inch digital display supported with analog displays – a first for a Ford-brand vehicle.

The new Explorer Platinum will be the first Ford vehicle to get an all-new 500-watt Sony Audio System with Live Acoustics and Clear Phase technology. Clear Phase eliminates sound dispersion throughout the vehicle, so the music occupants hear is precisely pinpointed, just as the artist intended. Live Acoustics engineering re-creates the sound dynamics of some of the world’s greatest concert halls for a more enveloping, realistic sound.

Explorer Platinum also gets standard advanced technology features including enhanced active park assist, lane-keeping system and rain-sensing wipers.

For the exterior, signature lighting surrounds the LED headlamps, giving Explorer Platinum a continuous glow. Other features include a standard dual-panel moonroof, premium silver-painted front and rear skid plate elements, and 20-inch wheels with bright machine face and tarnished dark painted pockets.

For the first time in a production Ford vehicle, a brushed aluminum Ford oval is centered on the steering wheel.

В продаже - вероятно, в 3-м квартале следующего года. Начальные цены в США останутся прежними, а вот в России, при сохранении курса доллара, стоит ждать цены от 2.5 до 3.5 млн.руб.
