The Explorer Sportsman was envisioned a genteel SUV befitting the “Tread Lightly” lifestyle. This concept was designed to appeal to outdoorsmen, in search of unspoiled waters and the perfect, wilderness fishing location. The exterior paint featured an innovative xirallic paint that used recycled glass as optic reflectors . Leather-covered door handles and a bloodwood steering wheel with alloy accents add to the outdoor sporting appeal of this concept.
