You may have noticed there is a new generation of the Ford Explorer cruising the streets. While this SUV is so good looking it might be hard to tell what exactly you are looking at while picking your jaw up off the floor. But there are actually four different trim levels of the new Explorer to choose from and each brings some great things to the table. Want to learn more? Check out our quick video break down!


The XLT is now the base level trim. While base-level in the past used to mean no-frills, things are a bit different as we travel the 3rd decade of this millennia. The XLT comes standard with the 200A package which includes LED headlights, USB charge ports, an 8” LCD touchscreen, FordPass connect with 4GLTE Wi-Fi hotspot, and Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 suite of safety features. You can also get the XLT in rear or all-wheel drive and it comes with a 2.3L EcoBoost 4 cylinder engine pushing 300 horsepower. The 202A package gives you 8-way power passenger seats, LED Fog Lamps, remote start, and additional chrome elements on the exterior just to name a few. If you live in a colder climate opt for the comfort package and you get heated first and second-row seats, a heated steering wheel, and windshield de-icer.


Looking to step up the luxury? Opt for the Limited trim and you get leather seats, Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 Assist +, the B&O sound system with 12 speakers, and a 360-degree camera. You can also build the Limited trim with a 3.3L hybrid engine over the 2.3L EcoBoost with the 310A package which also gives you 20” polished wheels and active noise cancellation. When you opt for the class III heavy-duty trailer tow package you can tow up to 5,000lbs with your Explorer.



The 400A package ST is the sporty model of the Explorer that means there is more power and more fun to be had! A sport-tuned suspension allows you to take the turns like no other Explorer before. The 3.0L EcoBoost V6 churns out a powerful 400 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft of torque capable of hitting a 143 mph top speed. Intelligent four-wheel drive is standard on the ST as well as drive modes to suit your driving style or terrain ahead. While the ST comes standard with 20” wheels you can step up to the high-performance package which includes 21” black-painted aluminum wheels, high-performance brakes, and red-painted brake calipers. The exterior of the ST is menacing with blacked-out trim, grille, and badging resulting in an intimidating look. Go for the premium technology package and you’ll also get multi-contour seats with active motion, an impressive 10.1” LCD capacitive portrait touchscreen SYNC 3 system and a rocking 980 Watt B&O sound system with 14 Speakers!


The 600A package Platinum sits at the top of the Explorer food chain and is loaded with top of the line tri-diamond stitched seats, a twin-panel moon roof, active park assist 2.0, and the 12.3” digital cluster in the dash all standard. The class III trailer tow package is also standard and allows you to tow up to 5,600lbs. The Platinum is equipped with the same 3.0L EcoBoost V6 however it is a bit de-tuned at 365 hp and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. The same premium technology package can be equipped in the Platinum and you can also opt for 21” wheels in a bright aluminum finish. The grille is also bright and bold in and adds to the premium look.
