2015 Ford Explorer SUV Design Exterior and Interior
Introduced in 1990, the Explorer is started the whole SUV revolution in North America, but how did she get so big crisis, and sales began to fall. Just four years it has fallen to just 50,000 vehicles, then US carmaker decided to dramatic changes. Gone is difficult and inefficient SUV platform and interchangeable with the more modern crossover, which is selling off, and it is expected that this year more than 200,000 users find buyers.
This class is not small, and there are Jeep Grand Cherokee, Dodge Durango, GMC Acadia, Nissan Pathfinder, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander and Ford hopes to continue the success of the 2015 Explorer, presented at this year’s Auto Show in Los Angeles. On the design side, the new model are only a roof, doors and windows to its predecessor while LED headlights now standard, and the first such headlights in the history of the Explorer.
The rear of the vehicle, as well as the profile, they keep the lines of the model that replaced, but at first glance it may recognize the vehicle on which it comes. Ford said the goal was to become as luxurious Explorer, so the 2015 model dumped with more equipment than ever before. This refers to the quality of the interior, which is among the best ever offered in a Ford vehicle, and many parts are taken directly from Ford’s premium division Lincoln.

Engine and Performance
We have come to a point agenda, which refers to the driving force of the vehicle. Big changes are followed and under the hood. The standard engine is a 3.5L V6 remains, which develops 290 horsepower and 359 Nm of torque, but the biggest news was followed in the form of a new 2.3L EcoBoost I4 engine. This engine is already built into the Mustang and should replace the current 2.0L EcoBoost engine, and its power is 270 horsepower and 407 Nm of torque. As in the past, top of the range makes the 3.5L EcoBoost V6 engine with 365 horsepower and 475 Nm of torque, which is standard on Sport and Platinum models. The only transmission available as an option is a six-speed automatic transmission, which transmits power to the front or all four wheels.
Despite all the improvements, Ford promises that the starting price of $31,500 was not significantly changed, allowing US carmaker reasonably expected to continue the success. Competition should be worried because Explorer shows once again that it is reasonably leader in its class.
