At the 2014 LA Auto Show today, Ford unveiled its new 2016 Ford Explorer. The new Explorer, which Ford has sold more than 7 million units of to date, will be offered as a global vehicle in its 25th year in 2016, as it will be built out of North American Chicago Assembly Plant, as well as in Venezuela and now, Russia. Ford says it will be sold in more than 100 markets across the globe.

Ford has been working on a new engine technology that will be offered in its 2011 F-150s next year that off-roaders will find interesting. It’s a cool concept that is being put to work – it involves the combination of both direct fuel injection and turbocharging in the rear-wheel-drive F-150. The EcoBoost engine options are offered in 4-cylinder and V6 options, and in early 2010 a V6 EcoBoost option will be available on the F-150. The F-150 will also be available with engine packages that include the 3.7-liter V6, 5.0-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8. As Ford notes, “This marks the most extensive engine makeover in the 62-year history of Ford F-Series.”
