  1. https://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/comparison-test/a29359211/2020-ford-explorer-vs-2020-kia-telluride/ They compared strictly on price, so therefore compared a top trim Telluride to an Explorer XLT (entry model). And then went on to complain and imply that Explorer didn't offer at all several features the Telluride had, when all those and more are available on higher trims of Explorer.

    I'll work on something tomorrow for you.

    Annoying reviewers!

    Eh, Ford's seat coolers have become pretty loud.
  4. It looks good! Like was said above, this basically picks up where the '08-12 left off.
  5. Just looked at the order guide, and the Limited model also has standard most of the features they were complaining Explorer didn't have vs. the competition.

    Fusion styled crossover?

    Yeah, that could be. Though with them all debuting around the same time, it's also natural for them to be compared.

    I have a feeling they're going to inch along with Bronco's production/introduction - that they won't want to screw it up (how Explorer should've been). Well, XLT keeps getting hit in reviews for not being as nice as competitors/not having the features. :shrug: we'll see!

    I'd agree. Explorer's pricing seems high. Sales will show if the market will accept those much higher prices, but I worry that they'll push too high. I also pegged roughly Edge pricing - maybe a tad higher for Bronco.

    Aw, wish you'd have said something, I could've mocked up something for you. On the second one, at mimimum the logo should stay chrome.

  11. Yeah, it didn't present much info. And they were talking about "oh RWD is news instead of the "expected" FWD". Don't know why they expected FWD.
  12. That seems like a lot of work for something that won't be done much.

    6K sounds like a lot, but I guess if it comes with a higher amount of standard content (be it powertrain or "options"), it could work ok.
  14. I think I'd agree with that. I'm interested in Bronco, but I don't ever see myself folding down the windshield.

    Your photo didn't work.
  16. Definitely agree there - it looks like they may also be the hinge point for a fold down windshield. I wonder if there's also a built-in snorkel component to it. Patent drawings obviously are very technical and don't do a good job of showing a true form/look, though, so I'm sure it'll look better in real life. The shapes on the outside of them are weird as well. Also to note - the front and rear wheel wells are different shapes (front is angled, back is curved), so maybe we shouldn't read much into it.
  17. It does look like mounting points for the mirrors on the A-pillars like has been reported. Exactly - a lot of them aren't used. I find it hard to believe that they'd be allowed to remove the rollbars.. There were more pictures: These show additional seatbelt "pillars" to mount the 3-point seatbelts without the roof attached. But I don't know how they're able to get around the rollover protection. An article I read mentioned a German-esque auto deploying rollover system. But if you're doing that, you wouldn't even need to put a removable rollover bar in the first place. It also seems quite "sketchy" to allow customers to remove and bolt in their own seatbelt protection.
  18. The "layered" screens to me looks a tad odd, but I'll wait to see the final look. I did like the Escala interior that this one is inspired by.

    Aside from it not being a Focus Active, yes.

    What is this Ford SUV

    I mean, technically we're a month and a half from CY2020 already. Not excusing the timeline, though.
