2017 Ford Explorer redesign review
The grille in the front end is redesigned with narrow and sleek headlamps beautifully fitted in corners of the grille. The tail lamps also underwent facelift and redesigning resulting in a fascinating angular shape for the new tail lamps. LED technology has been artistically used with proper blending in both tail lamps as well as head lamps for providing better, reliable and more efficient lighting. The improved wheel covers uses light weight material resulting in reduced weight and consequent fuel efficiency. The wheelbase is 0.2 inch longer as a result of a minor tweak in the suspension and another one inch is added by redesigning the fascia, the front fenders and the hood.
