    The 500 watt Platinum stereo system is now standard in the Sport.

    There really isn't much of a reason to go with the Platinum any longer besides the instrument cluster and the more plush leather (don't care about the dashboard suede).

    The Platinum has better sound insulation and noise cancelling, heated 2nd row seats and Enhanced Park Assist if those things are important to anyone. I like the new digital dash and it is a selling point for me.

    The upgraded Sony system is not standard equipment on the Sport, however it is included in the 401A package.

    The Sport still comes with the perforated ebony leather with red stitching. The suede inserts are only available with the XLT Sport Appearance package.

    MAFordFan, you can see the full order guide for yourself by clicking the link in the OP.

    Long shot but maybe it's retractable with motors? The power requirement to have both would be too demanding. That's my guess.

    Surely looks like the Sync 3 with the Sync-Connect LTE Modem will not be a part of the 2017 Explorer Line-up. All the 2017 Order Guide says is "Sync 3". Surely was hoping that Sync-Connect LTE option would be included. It appears from other articles on the web that the first five years of Sync-Connect AT&T service is complimentary unless I'm reading this wrong?

    I think that is a feature on the remote keyless device to open the moon roof and the front windows.

    On mine you just hold the Unlock button down for a period of time and all the windows open. Holding the Lock button down will close them. I'm guessing the fob for the 2017 Explorer will likely work the same way.

    That is really sad. I figured for sure Sync Connect would be an upgrade later this year via software...

    I think for me maybe the massaging seats and heated 2nd row are the only things I would like in the Platinum. However, I do not like the "look" of the Platinum vs. the Sport. I think Sport wins.

    Disappointed to see there were no headlight changes over '16. Just saw a report on Good Morning America that the Insurance Institute did - surprising results for lights - maybe the manufacturers will now pay more attention to this. I'm certain my '15 Sport headlights would have ranked as Poor at best.

    Looks like the Sport can be ordered with Smoked Quartz (new color). I have been trying to see if I could find the difference in Smoked Quartz vs. Magnetic which was going to be my choice.

    Is Smoke Quartz in between Magnetic and Black? I see some Lincolns have the color but its hard to tell differences on line.

    Thanks!

    That's what I figured when I saw it on a Lincoln at the dealer, a dark Magnetic almost black. It will be nice contrast with the Sport all black trim and handles.

    I believe smoke quartz is more of a dark blueish/grey/black combo hard to explain - tonnes of pics on line for the color see a lot of MKZs a few MKX with it from 2012-2014ish timeframe

    That's exactly what it looks like to me, too. I found an image of an MKZ in each color and in similar lighting conditions to do a side-by-side comparison:

    Ford changed to LED style in 16 (Which i think the light output looks fantastic, even better than the pre-16 OEM HIDs), so why would they need to do another headlight design?
