I was absolutely positive that the third cupholder (or whatever it is) in the Explorer would be perfect for an 8.4 ounce can of Red Bull. Had to be. And thank you, Ford, for thinking of those of us who occasionally drink the sweet elixir.

Most cupholders do a crappy job of holding these slim cans in place.

But...

No. The can just rests on top, maybe a quarter inch or so sinking in at all. Definitely not what this holder was designed for, and certainly not enough to keep it in place around corners.
