In response to the growing demand for better-looking and equipped SUVs Ford has released a new version of the Explorer which they say increase the appeal of their best-selling Utility vehicle. The 2017 Ford Explorer XLT Sport comes with an exclusive Appearance Package.
As the name suggests, Ford Explorer XLT Sport gives the vehicle a sportier look by adding certain elements to the styling. The main features include 20-inch Magnetic Gray wheels, grille, mirror caps and rear appliqué, Ebony Black body side molding, and black roof rack and hood badge.
The treatment continues inside where you find Dark Earth Gray leather for front seats, including outer bolsters by premium leather maker Salerno; Dark Earth Gray Miko suede for seat back uppers and inserts with Umber scrim, and door trim inserts; Umber contrast stitching and Explorer floor mats.
2017 Ford Explorer XLT Sport comes as standard with a 3.5-liter V6 engine and equipment such as Intelligent Access with push-button start, 10-way power driver’s seat with lumbar support, SYNC 3, and LED fog lamps.
“Our Sport Appearance philosophy is rooted in the fact that we know exterior appearance is the No. 1 consideration in SUV purchase decisions,” said Omar Odeh, Explorer brand marketing manager. “The XLT Sport Appearance Package is a dramatic offering that gives customers another attractive option.”
