A mid-cycle refresh is in the works for the 2016 Ford Explorer crossover. Although still covered in tight-fitting black and white swirl wrap camouflage, these images reveal a significant makeover to the three-row crossover’s front and rear ends.

Up front, the refreshed 2016 Ford Explorer gives up its Range Rover -esque headlights and grille for new pieces similar to those on the redesigned 2015 Ford Edge. The headlights lose the current vehicle’s “eyebrow” marker lights, giving the housings a wider, rectangular look. The upper grille is smaller, while the lower fascia gets new air inlets on each side of the central air intake. LED foglights mounted in the new air inlets replace the current model’s low-mounted round foglights.

Around back, the taillights get new graphics and appear to have a more rectangular shape with a simplified design compared to the current model. Camouflage over the D-pillar suggests changes to the rear class, which may be a wider rear window or better integration of the quarter windows into the pillar.

The 2016 Ford Explorer is also expected to get a new interior including a new infotainment system with tactile interface. The Lincoln MKC ’s 2.3-liter EcoBoost I-4 could also replace the current model’s available 2.0-liter EcoBoost engine.
