I love my Ford Explorer and the V8 engine! I'm capable of going shopping, grocery shopping, moving, or whatever in it without worrying about not having enough room! I'm able to travel in snow well without any problems, maybe with ice but who doesn't?! The 4WD is AWESOME! I would love to get the newer Explorer, why wouldn't I love it? The only thing I hate is the minor problems with it...the rear window wiper blade doesn't wipe-it wipes maybe 3 inches of what it should, the gas of course, and just minor things, which have been worked out. It's built to be awesome and have that "I'm a bad ass" feel to it. I wouldn't trade it in for anything less- even though gas prices are tempting me :[
The V8 engine, 4WD, the beast-ness of it all. The temperature and compass. The fog lights - my mom doesn't have them on her 2010 car!
Change the look of it, I mean they all look the same interior/exterior for years! The radio is somewhat lame, could improve it more--better sound system. Storage could improve, who puts CDs in the middle console?! Wider seats too :D
