In an effort to draw attention to its aging three-row crossover, Ford is updating the Explorer with cosmetic enhancements for 2015.
The company announced today that it plans to offer a new appearance package on XLT models starting this month that adds a “sportier look.” The package adds 20-inch ally wheels with black painted accents, black body cladding and roof rails and specially painted mirror caps. The grille gets the same color treatment.
Ford is also adding suede inserts to the leather seats and contrast stitching as well as special floor mats and an auto-dimming rear-view mirror. The package also adds an eight-inch touch screen with MyFord Touch and two 4.2-inch LCD screens in the instrument cluster.
Aside from that, the company is also updating the Explorer for 2015 by adding new 18-inch aluminum wheels to the standard equipment list for base models, a class III trailer package as standard for the Explorer Sport and new paint colors.
