2016 Ford Explorer Spy Shots2016 Ford Explorer is the sixth generation of Explorer and it will continue to be a large three-row SUV. The modern SUV has many fathers, the Chevrolet Suburban and Jeep Cherokee among them, but the Ford Explorer can take credit for making these new American station wagons mainstream throughout the ’90s. Nearly 25 years later, the 2016 Ford Explorer will remain an essential part of any family SUV search. 2016 Ford Explorer will show subtle exterior changes, but more significant powertrain and chassis upgrades are likely.

2016 Ford Explorer won’t likely look much different from the current model and should continue to offer seven-passenger seating. Photos of recent Explorer prototypes suggest a stronger, squarer front end with narrow headlamps, a wide-slatted grille and more angular LED taillamps. 2016 Ford Explorer will almost certainly use aluminum in its body panels to help reduce overall weight. Ford used the expensive, lightweight metal to shed around 700 pounds from the forthcoming F-150 pickup. The Explorer won’t lose that much mass, but even 200 or 300 fewer pounds should help deliver impressive gains at the pump.
