      Just sent an email off to Husky to check this out. I'm tempted to use the Husky liners I had in the MKT. They aren't an exact fit but not bad either.

      Thanks Peter. I need everything to be an exact fit (nothing less than a 110% :)), so if the current liners won't do it then I might go with the OEM mats since I have those for free.

      How do the X-Act Contours fit for you on the drivers side?

      UPDATE: Never did get a response to my email so I called today and just ordered a set of front liners in gray 13762. On the Husky site they show the same item number for both 2016 and 2017 models. It was explained to me that they modified the 2016 liner so that it fits both model years. The company I called in my area (Ottawa) has to order them and gave a 4 week delivery time. I'll see how well they fit when they arrive. Currently using the 2014 MKT Husky liners but the driver's side doesn't have the 'button' to snap onto the pins attached to the carpet so it doesn't sit completely flat and I don't really want to modify them.

      No problem on the fit on the driver's side. Perfect fit. I think the passenger side was missing one of the "snap" connectors, but the fit is perfect. I also have no problem with the X-Act in the middle or third rows. When I bought them, I was assured the 2016 version was the same as 2017, and I really don't see any need to change them (except if they add the snap-tite connection to secure the passenger side mat).

      Hope this helps.

      I'm using the Husky MKT liner on the passenger side and set it on top of the carpeted mat. The MKT liners don't have the 'snaps'. It is a perfect fir and believe me it isn't going anywhere. No way it will slide. Driver's side is another story.

      I just acquired a Husky liner for the back of my 2013 XLT with the 3rd row folded down.

      Is it a problem to roll it up if I need to pop up the 3rd row seats and then stash it behind the 3rd row?

      I can't say for sure but if it is shipped the way the other liners are than it likely arrived rolled up in a box to start with. It may take a little while to flatten out again. When I received my OEM cargo liner it was rolled up in a box and after laying it out on the floor for a couple days it was fine. Try it and see.

      Peter, I was excited to see the grey liners didn't have the pop tabs. The problem I ran into with my weather techs is my driveway is on enough of an angle that the water/salt gets through the tabs. I have so much crusted salt under the drivers seat.

      Do the huskys fornthe EX have the tabs? It's hard to tell on the site? (17 model)

      The front Husky liners I ordered for my 2017 have the tabs that pop onto the OEM tabs in the carpet. They are a sealer tab so nothing will leak through.

      Thank you. From the pictures on the site it looked like the weatherbeaters had the tabs but the x act fit had indentations(or reversed). Yours are the x-act fit?

      Mine are the Weatherbeaters. I don't think the X-Act Contours will fit a 2013. It seems they are for the newer models, 2015 +.

      sorry for reviving an old thread but still haven't pulled the trigger for my 17 sport as the second row fit is horrible.too much material at the hump.
      anyway I need fronts bad and wondering since it has been a while, has anyone got the x-act contours for a 17 sport? if so how the fit. can you snap a pic so I can see the rise at the sill as well (does it cover the explorer kick plate?)

      Looking at the video I find it difficult to tell if it goes over to the sill. I don't think it does.

      They don't go over the sills as you'd catch your foot on it every-time.

      The Woman doesn't like how slippery the Weathertechs are in my truck and says she can't drive it with heels/dress shoes on. Are the Huskys better in this regard? We have a 2017 Sport and almost four year old twins, so everything needs to be covered. :)

      I did a 'Search' in this thread and including yours there are 4 posts about "slippery" and they all relate to WeatherTech. Personally I've never noticed it being an issue with the Huskys I've always used but then I don't wear "heels".;)

      The Husky can be "slick" when wet , not really slippery ... but with heels/hard sole shoes it probably feels "worse" at first.

      Before I purchased a set for my 2016 sport off Amazon I contacted Husky regarding the changes to there front matts in case there response helps anyone.



      "In 2017 Ford added a floor mat retaining post to the passenger side floor pan of the Explorer. Part #13761 has a small raised area directly over the newly added post so that the liner will set flat over the top it. If you put the same 13761 liner in a 2015 or 2016 model, it will fit too as the accommodation for the post is very small and it does not affect the fit in these earlier models. However, the passenger side liner of set 13761 might not completely set flat over the post if you installed it in a 2017 model.
