For 2016 Ford has added a new range-topping Platinum edition to the Explorer lineup, bringing new levels of luxury never seen before in a Ford SUV.

High-quality interior materials are found throughout the cabin, with real aluminum and ash wood surfaces on the door and instrument panels, a wood and leather-wrapped heated steering wheel and a 10-inch digital display in the instrument cluster. Premium Nirvana leather also wraps the door bolsters and trim, console armrests and instrument panel.
