We are still waiting for the 2015 Ford Explorer to be officially presented but until that happens we are delivering few details that we were able to collect regarding this vehicle. Delivery of this vehicle will start before the end of 2014th while it will be presented during the 2014th, most likely in mid summer.
These are only rumors and there are no official reports about this. What we could hear that the same market segment will be the main target for new Explorer. It comes as a full size SUV that offers three seating rows and is capable of transporting up to eight passengers which is interesting for people with larger families.
Redesigned 2015 Explorer
Changes that this redesigned model will offer will be related to both interior and exterior. Just like we were able to see with few other models in this category, we are getting more modern look that will be much more attractive to buyers. Instead of boxy looks we have slightly curved sides and significantly improved design. On the front there are modern headlights and elegant grille that pushes refinement of this vehicle to a new level.
Don’t expect anything revolutionary, we are sure that this vehicle will still not be able to compete with sedans in looks but drivers that need more space will certainly appreciate changes delivered here. At the back we have new taillights with pretty unusual trapezoidal style. Overall the looks is much more appealing and the new front end will significantly increase the road presence of this model.
Interior will be also different, more space should be offered while the materials used to create everything inside should be of better quality. We expect to see a decent amount of infotainment features changed and improved. Larger touchscreen should be placed at the center of dashboard and through it driver will be able to control many in car systems. This touchscreen will also be the highlight of the entire dashboard since it will take up decent amount of space.
When it comes to engine lineup and what we are getting under the hood we are pretty short on info. As a base unit there are mentions about 2.0 liter inline four EcoBoost unit that will develop about 230 hp. More powerful version could come with 3.5 liter V6 EcoBoost unit. Another interesting rumor is about hybrid and possibility to see the 2015 Ford Explorer Hybrid powertrain. There is no info about fuel consumption for any of these models.
2015 Ford Explorer Price
There were many speculations about price tag that will be appointed to the 2015 Ford Explorer. We expect only slight changes and the base model could come with price of about $ 30.000 like the base model for previous years. Top specs version could be priced at more than $ 40.000 while the hybrid could be even more expensive. Depending on the selected optional features prices will vary significantly but Ford needs to jeep everything in the line so it would be able to compete with other models in this market segment that are delivered by other car makers.
