SUVs, in a lot of ways, are the new minivan. They're family-friendly vehicles that are as good for trips to the grocery store and taking the kids to soccer games as they are for off-roading and rough terrain. So vehicles like the Ford Explorer have to offer the best in technology and convenience, as well as high performance.

Ford Explorer Technology 

The 2016 Ford Explorer comes in a whopping five trim levels plus various option packages. This translates into a vast range of Ford Explorer technology options for the discerning driver. The trim levels are the XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum plus extra option packages.

The base level comes with LED automatic headlights and automatic LED taillights, cruise control, a rearview camera, climate controls for the back seat, power driver seat six-way settings, a 4.2-inch display for driver information, Ford SYNC with voice activation and commands, Bluetooth® audio and phone connectivity, and a six-speaker sound system that includes a CD player plus USB and auxiliary inputs. 

XLT Upgrade 

As if that wasn't enough, the XLT upgrades your brakes for greater safety plus adds fog lights to the mix as well as heated outside mirrors, rear parking sensors, push-button ignition and keyless entry, eight-way adjustment power driver seat, passenger seat with six-way power adjust, and satellite radio tuner. 

XLT Package Options 

At this level, you also gain access to the Equipment Group 201A package, which gives you many other great extras, including dual-zone automatic climate control, remote start, upgraded power passenger seats with 8-way adjust, and an upgraded sound system with nine speakers. Choosing the 202A package adds front parking sensors, as well as heated front seats to the mix. 

The Driver Connect package boosts the touchscreen interface to 8 inches for the MyFord Touch infotainment center, plus gives you an auto-dim rearview mirror, SD card reader, customizable gauge clusters, and upgraded SYNC functions.
