The 2016 Ford Explorer Features Explain What Being Built Ford Tough Is All About! – Los Angeles, CA

The tagline “Built Ford Tough” has been around for a very, very long time. How long? It’s been used for 38 years! This tagline has been around since 1977 and is still going strong. It’s probably one of the longest running, most successful slogans still in use today, and for good reason – it’s true!

I was chatting with the good folks at one of the best Ford dealerships in greater Los Angeles, Chino Hills Ford, and they let m know that while it began as a descriptor for Ford pickup trucks, it’s evolved into the perfect description for every Ford on the road.

I took a look at the 2016 Ford Explorer full-size SUV while I was there, and I think I’ve found the new standard when talking about what “Ford Tough” truly is! Here’s why:

The Engine

When it’s time to select your 2016 Ford Explorer engine, don’t forget you can get the 2.3-liter EcoBoost with 280 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. That’s a lot of towing capability!

The Towing

Speaking of towing… it comes with a Class II Trailer Tow Package. Here’s what that means: Class II hitches are weight carrying (WC) hitches rated up to 3,500 pounds gross trailer weight (GTW) with a maximum trailer tongue weight (TW) of 300 pounds. Do you have s boat? You can definitely take it to the lake with the 2016 Ford Explorer towing capacity. Happy fishing!

The Outdoors Are Never a Problem

You can use your 2016 Ford Explorer for a family car if you like, of course. Or you can take advantage of the available Intelligent Four-Wheel-Drive-System with Terrain Management System to take it off road! As perfect for camping as it is for running errands, being “Ford Tough” means it can get the job done, no matter what the job is!

It Likes Tech

You can take the 2016 Ford Explorer features anywhere, literally, but when you get lost off the beaten path, you may need directions. With the available voice-activated SYNC or SYNC with MyFord Touch technology, you don’t even need to take your hands off the wheel to get the GPS working. Even tough guys get in a pickle once in awhile.


If you’re in the market for a 2016 Ford Explorer in Los Angeles that’s certified “Ford Tough,” now’s the perfect time to head down to Chino Hills Ford. You can test drive the new 2016 Ford Explorer to get a feeling for what that tagline stands for!
