COSCHARIS Motors Plc, the exclusive marketer of Ford brands in Nigeria, has showcased the latest Ford Explorer during the Lagos Motor Fair, held at the Federal Palace Hotel, Lagos.

Coscharis’s participat­ion at the Motor Fair was to ensure customers get the opportunit­y to experience the new Ford Explorer among other Ford variants on display.

Coscharis Group’s General Manager, Marketing and Corporate Communicat­ions, Abiona Babarinde, expressed excitement at the company’s participat­ion in the fair.

Babarinde said: “We are excited to showcase all the variants of our Ford brand at this fair to the delight of everyone that visited our stand; most especially the new Ford Explorer on display with all its unique features that have been the most sorted after through the duration of the fair and beyond.

“The platform equally was a perfect place where we showcased the Ford Escape that is on a special promotiona­l discount - nearly up to two million naira for every purchase, among other packages.

“To complete the total package we offered at the fair was to give finance scheme support to discerning prospects as a way to ease ownership of any of our vehicles through any of our finance partners like Coscharis Mobility and Polaris Bank. With as low as 10 per cent to 30 per cent initial payment of the principal amount of any vehicle of your choice, you are good to drive home your dream vehicle with the finance partners that will help complete the full payment based on agreed terms and conditions attainable.”

Deputy General Manager, Ford Sales, Coscharis Motors Plc, Justin Ngini, added: “The Explorer is available as Base, XLT and the range-topping Limited Edition, with 10-speed A/T 2.3L Ecoboost to 3.3L TI-VCT V6 engines. Despite serious competitio­n from several other brands, our target will be to position it as the benchmark, as quite a bit of work had been done on the vehicle to upgrade it.”

The Explorer offers a more spacious interior with increased cargo space compared to the previous generation. With seating for up to seven, passengers in all three rows will benefit. The Explorer has best-in-class first- and second-row hip room and secondrow headroom, while third-row passengers enjoy unsurpasse­d headroom. Should someone unbuckle their safety belt, a new Belt Monitor System will alert the driver as to which belt is unbuckled through the instrument cluster productivi­ty screen. And thanks to a new dual-wall dashboard between the engine and passenger compartmen­ts, as well as acoustic glass for the windshield and first-row windows, everyone will enjoy the quietest Explorer cabin ever.

With up to nine available power points, including two new USB-C outlets, the Explorer interior helps keep everyone’s devices charged and ready to go.
