What's New for 2017?

2017 looks to be a great year for the Explorer, with quite a few updates and additions coming its way. On the outside, the 2017 Explorer enjoys a new grille and updated LED headlights and LED taillights. In addition to this outside refresh, the Explorer now stands with a 113-inch wheelbase, it's largest yet. For some of the lower trim levels that want a sportier look and feel, a new Sport Appearance Package will give your Explorer that aggressive edge with 20-inch wheels, a blacked-out roof rack, and gray grille inserts. 2017 didn't stop on the exterior, however. The interior also received a little love in the form of the available SYNC® 3 infotainment system and an available dual-panel moonroof, which will only accentuate that already spacious interior.
