2011 Ford Explorer Unveiled

Well its Monday and Ford has unveiled the new Explore to the public. The first link is to pictures and the second link talks about the two engines. A stand 3.5 V6 and a optional 2.0 EB I4. Pretty cool stuff. They said depending how the 2.0 EB does it might be the standard engine.

Well good for your stocks. I don't care what the stocks are doing. They took the only suv I liked an ****ed it up. But I know they had to change with the times. I'm entitled to my opinion.'

Woo woo I never said that you were not entitled. Im just saying that it was sparked as something positive in the investors minds and what not. I hope I didnt send you the wrong message? If so I deeply apologize.

In some shape or form. It is going to be the base engine by 2013 or 2014 for 80% to 85% of Fords vehicles according to Ford. From what I heard and Ive experienced with the 3.5 EB in the SHO they are really great engines.

Ford is putting the 3.5 EB in the F150 next year (not as base engine as the 3.7L V6 will be) the 2.0 EB in the 2012 Focus 2012 Fusion and Australian Ford Falcon. Then they will have a three cylinder EB in the Fiesta.

They want to put them as an option to see how they do then throw them as the base engine to get all the bugs out and better fine tune them.

All Ford has to do is offer AWD and a six speed manual along with the EB technology to make it more sporty.

Re: 2011 Ford Explore Unveiled

**** the explorer, its time to move on to something better.The edge is a great looking vehicle and very family friendly. If you want a 4x 4 get a real truck not a mid sized suv....JMO.

To my knowledge there will some sort of EB rival from GM in the New Buick Regal and Chevy Curze along with a Cadillac SRX.

Nothing as powerful or more powerful yet. But I think this is something Ford is going to have in their favor for a while.

Re: 2011 Ford Explore Unveiled

It looks a lot smaller. I don't think I would take that truck off roading. It is not truck enough for the people wanting to buy a truck and it is not "mid-size" enough for the people worried about fuel economy and children's soccer practice. I think the engineers were confused themselves.
