Inside, a Deep Cypress trim color pairs well with the rugged exterior. The headliner, overhead console, pillar trim, grab handles, visors, and moonroof shade are all finished in Ebony, which contrasts against the Stone Mesh instrument panel applique and Satin Silver Twilight on the center stack, steering wheel, and armrest trim. The cabin is accented with Deep Tangerine stitching on the seats, steering wheel, and door trim.
Ford says this interior is adventure-ready with ActiveX seat trim and cloth inserts, which are easy to wipe. Those seats are heated, as is the leather steering wheel. Rubber floor mats come standard, as do Ford Co-Pilot360 and Co-Pilot360 Assist+ technology. The Explorer has plenty of cargo space, but three available Outfitters packages add all-weather floor mats, crossbars, and Yakima rooftop accessories for buyers who need even more carrying capacity.
Pricing starts at $45,765 (plus a $1,245 delivery and a destination fee), and orders for the Explorer Timberline are now open, with units arriving at dealers this summer.
