2011 Ford Explorer
Finally, a modern Explorer.
Gone is the old “trucky truck”, with that 70’s wagon driving experience.
It now looks like a cross between the Flex and the next Focus.
Big news also come from the engines.
No more V8.
The standard engine is now the modern 3.5 Liter V6, also used in the Taurus. With 262hp.
A new 2.0 Liter Turbo with 237hp is an option.
In this engine, maximum torque of 250 pound-feet is available at 1750 RPM. Which is pretty much right away.
Now that most people are getting out of their SUV,s is it too late for the Explorer?
Or could they repeat the success of the 1st one?
