2016 Ford Explorer to debut at 2014 Los Angeles Auto Show

(October 30, 2014) DEARBORN, Mich. — Ford has confirmed it will reveal its new 2016 Ford Explorer at the Los Angeles Auto Show. The new Ford Explorer goes on sale next year in North America, arriving in time to celebrate 25 years as the best-selling midsize SUV in the United States.

Nearly 7 million Explorers have been sold here since the vehicle debuted in 1990 and popularized the SUV.

“The new Explorer is still the SUV America fell in love with — a vehicle built for the perfect family adventure,” said Jim Farley, Ford executive vice president, Global Marketing, Sales and Service. “Explorer is the foundation of Ford’s full line of award-winning utility vehicles, which is helping the Ford brand grow around the world.”

The 2016 Ford Explorer will reach showrooms with a new look, added capability and additional driver-assist technology. It will continue to underpin the company’s utility vehicle lineup — from the hot-selling Ford Escape to the newly updated, full-size Ford Expedition.
