Not every make and model manages to deliver a good trim layout. In order for a trim lineup to be right for people, it has to offer models that differentiate design and features enough to justify the addition of a new trim. Pricing is a powerful indicator of a good trim lineup, too. Everything added to each new trim should warrant the new price. A used Ford Explorer features trims like the base, XLT, Limited, Sport, and Platinum. Some model years add special editions.
