It will fit just fine as long as you trim the top and bottom lip where the radio sits

Take the 2 7mm bolts out just above the hvac panel and pull the whole panel out then disconnected the lighter and 12v plug and fog light switch then you can unplug the radio harness and antenna wire. Then there are 2 tabs that hold the radio in.

I have the pioneer p3300bt and love it. Only downside I "didn't" like was the aux and USB ports being on the front. Having the cable sticking out sucked and got in the way of the shifter. So I took the radio apart and solider the cable inside running it out the back and behind the hvac and under the explorer console out the tissue hole. Nice and clean now.

I have the explorer full length console and its easy to hide the wire in it but I don't know if you have that option.
