Bought this Explorer several weeks ago and must say the ride is fantastic.
Very quiet, excellent handling, acceleration much better than my last Explorer V8. Four wheel drive works excellent, doesn't need a low 4WD because the first gear of the 6 speed is so low. Goes anywhere.
Still learning all the electronics, loving them all so far. Getting on average 20MPG, should increase once the vehicle is broken in. Highly recommend this vehicle to everyone, so comfortable and easy to drive!
Body style, interior layout, dual sunroofs, Ford My Touch voice activation, handling.
More sensitive touch screen.
Larger icons for managing while driving.
Told upgrades are coming in 2013 which should address these.
