The 2011 Explorer took 51/2 months to arrive but so far, it was worth the wait. The interior is pure luxury and the exterior is upscale . The ride is totally unlike my 2001 Explorer-quieter, smoother and more stable. The My Ford Sync and My Touch systems take time on the road to master and I agree that the touch screen's graphics and text size are too small. The Navigation system is a bit crazy; it seems to want to take you off a direct route onto a business route as you pass small towns. We received good rebates from the dealer. Apparently Ford does not keep their dealers apprised of production/delivery info as my dealer could not explain the delay in delivery.
Size,quiet and stable ride,cargo space(golf clubs no longer have to rest on wheel wells),and overall appearance and luxury .
Improve the text size on the touch screen and fine tune the Nav. system. Add 2-3" of driver leg room.
