Platinum Explorer the Premium SUV for Everyone

In the traditional hierarchy of ranking precious metals, you start with bronze, then move to silver and ultimately, gold. Gold wasn’t good enough to describe the premium status of the top-of-the-line Ford Explorer, with more features and creature comforts than the company has ever offered in its full-size SUV, so Ford has aptly named this trim level “Platinum.” With a premium Nirvana leather interior, dual panel moonroof and heated second row seats, this is one SUV that just may replace your favorite recliner as a space to relax. Chapman Ford in Scottsdale has a large Ford Explorer inventory just waiting for your inspection and a test drive.

Premium Features, Affordable price

With a starting sticker price of just $53,940, the Ford Explorer Platinum offers many of the same features at a much lower price than you’ll find in other premium SUVs. The Nirvana leather seats have micro perforations, allowing the seat to breathe and keep you cooler in the hot Phoenix summers. Quilted bolsters are not only attractive, but provide a soft cushion to prevent fatigue on long drives. You’ll take those drives enjoying your favorite music piped in thorugh a premium Sony sound system, offering 500 watts of power driving 12 speakers. Clear Phase audio helps eliminate any distortion and create a clear, concert-like experience. Other premium features include LED lighting in front and rear, power folding mirrors, rain sensing wipers and a heated steering wheel for those cold desert mornings.

EcoBoost Provides Plenty of Power

Ford’s innovative 3.5L EcoBoost engine powers the Platinum model, delivering 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, both of which are best in its class. The EcoBoots provides plenty of power for whatever adventure may come your way, including towing a recreational trailer or boat to your favorite weekend spot. With the standard all-wheel drive and trailer sway control, the Explorer adjusts the brakes and engine power to keep your trailer in line when conditions get tough. If you were ever in an SUV and had the feeling you were about to tip over going around a curve, you’ll have no such fears in the Explorer. Curve Control senses when you’re going a bit too fast for a corner and automatically slows the vehicle down up to 10 mph.

Interior Configures Quickly for People or Cargo

The new Ford Explorer has an available PowerFold rear seat that goes flat at the press of a button, making plenty of room to haul your latest yard sale find. Put the seats up and you have room for seven adults, who will enjoy being driven to work in the lap of luxury in the office carpool. The Ford Explorer is a marvel of engineering both inside and out. See it and take a test drive today at Chapman Ford in Scottsdale.
