Inside Ford’s new Explorer lineup is a new SUV that starts at $28,995.
That’s right, the new 2016 model of the Explorer will cost a whopping $28 million less than the 2017 model.
It’s the Explorer’s biggest leap since its debut in 2007.
The new 2016 Ford Explorer will come with a new interior, but it won’t include any changes to the standard Explorer package, such as the optional 8.0-liter V6.
The base Explorer is the most powerful model in the lineup, with an EPA-estimated rating of 32 mpg city and 35 mpg highway.
Ford has been selling the base model of Explorer 2016 for $28.5 million.
The 2016 model is available in four different trim levels: Standard, Advanced, Sport and Luxury.
We’ll break down all four levels in a moment, but the Sport edition starts at a more reasonable $27,995, while the Advanced, Luxury and Premium editions start at a bit more than $28 thousand.

You’ll need to get an Apple CarPass pass, and Ford will sell you a $500 iPhone for $1,000.
The next level of the 2016 Explorer is available for $33,995 with a slightly higher price tag.
Ford is offering this new model with the most advanced exterior, as well as more power, features and tech.
There’s a 12-speaker sound system with Dol by Dol sound, adaptive headlights and an all-new Active Brake Assist system that’s been specifically tuned for the 2016 Ford.
Ford says the new Active Brakes system “reduces rear-end speed and improves road feel and stability for more fun and safety.”
The new 2017 Explorer will also come with Ford’s optional Active Braking Assist.
There is a 4.4 L V8 engine and six-speed automatic transmission.
The car also gets a new, stronger rear bumper, which will give the car more grip.
Ford will offer a standard 10-speed manual transmission, which can be purchased for $2,999.
The Explorer will be available in the Ford Escape, Escape S, Xtreme, Premier, Premier X and Premier XL trim levels, as they are all available with the base Explorer.

There will also be an optional, $1 million CarPass Pass.
In all, the Explorer 2016 comes with 12 new features, including Apple CarPasses, Ford’s CarPass and the new iPhone 7+.
Ford is not changing the base price.
Ford claims the new Explorer will start shipping in the third quarter of this year.
The automaker has also updated the 2016 lineup to include the 2017 Ford F-150 Raptor, which comes with the new 4.2-liter EcoBoost engine and the redesigned F-350 Raptor SUV.
The Raptor will cost an additional $4,000 when it arrives, but that’s a lot cheaper than the previous-generation Raptor.
The F-450 will be the first Raptor to go into production.
