20-inch machined aluminum rims with painted pockets, mirror caps and front grille painted in Magnetic Metallic, black body-side cladding and roof rack rails and a liftgate appliqué give the SUV a far more striking visual identity than the standard XLT model. So what's there as far as the cabin is concerned?
Well, highlights include heated front seats wrapped in leather and Miko suede inserts, also adorned with visually pleasant contrast stitching. Matching floor mats complete the interior look of the all-new appearance pack.
However, the package also comes with technological upgrades such as an auto-dimming rearview mirror and an 8-inch touchscreen infotainment system with two USB ports for your MP3s and an SD memory card reader.
Matt Zuehlk, Ford Explorer brand manager, declared that this package carries "a surprising value," being priced at $1,195. The 2015 Ford Explorer XLT starts from $32,900, while the $30,600 entry-level model now comes as standard with redesigned 18-inch aluminum wheels.
