2012 Ford Explorer XLT: There's a Place for Everything

Yes, there's really a lip balm holder in the center console of our Explorer. Not a tissue holder, not a coin depository, but a snap-in receptacle for your favorite tube of Chap stick.

I wonder how that decision was made. We're there heated battles between the Kleenex contingent and the iPod holder people? And why did the pen people win two spots? Who needs to carry two pens? Nobody writes stuff on paper anymore.

Any way you look at it, this is one seriously engineered center console. Maybe some of those people should have worked on the MyFordTouch controls instead.
