The Platinum is the top tier in the multi-layered Explorer cake, and this model thus gets all the icing. A forward-collision detection and warning system supplements a post-crash alert system to maximize safety. It also features ambient lighting, genuine wood trims, Nirvana leather upholstery with quilted bolsters and optional massaging front seats, all of which give it a premium feel inside. Essentially all available equipment in lesser models is included along with the Sport’s powertrain, the saving grace of the model range. To help accentuate its more costly comfort features inside, the exterior is bedazzled with chrome highlights, including a very shiny air-dam grille.
