2012 Ford Explorer: Maybe We'll Like This One Better?
March 26, 2012
You might have read that Ford will be showing off a new variant of the Explorer on its Explorer Facebook page in two days time. Common speculation seems to be it'll be an Explorer Sport with the twin-turbo V6 Ecoboost engine.
Makes sense. You can get one in the Flex, so why not the Explorer? But seeing as how most of our staff's complaints center around MyFord Touch and the Explorer's "drives big" personality (and not our comparatively puny EcoBoost four-cylinder), I'm not sure if more horsepower would cure what ails our vehicle and its relationship with the staff.
