  1. Here you go! The final design of the Explorer, although this is the Police version. https://jalopnik.com/this-is-the-2020-ford-explorer-before-youre-supposed-to-1828528782?rev=1534963362392&utm_campaign=socialflow_jalopnik_twitter&utm_source=jalopnik_twitter&utm_medium=socialflow
  2. We have a 2017 Sport Explorer that we are currently in the middle of the buy back process with. It had/has this shudder or stutter in what feels like the transmission when going about 55mph.. especially when on any kind of incline. Anybody else have this issue with the Explorer? I e seen where its evident in the F150 but havent heard anything about it being in Explorer? Anybody else have to go through the buy back process? We havent received our offer back from Ford yet but are really confused on the process. We certainly do not want to replace with another Explorer so does that help us or hurt us in this process?
  3. I am in sales. I travel 9 states when I'm on the road selling. I love my Explorer. I first wrapped all of the chrome from the roof racks the door handles and did some detailing on the hood and trunk. The next step was to powder coat the wheels, DIP coat the front grille and smoke out the head and tail lights. Next step is to install a K&N cold air intake and pint my brake calipers red. Thoughts? I want a clean but mean look. (I apologize for some photo's being upside down. It's defaulting to that for some reason).

    2016 Ford Explorer Sport Ruby Red

    From the album: Stoney's 2016 Ford Explorer Sport

    2016 Ford Explorer Sport. Ruby Red.
  5. Has anyone been able to get a hold of lease numbers for the 2016s? Looking for residual and MF on an XLT. Thanks!
  6. All, So first off I finally got our 2014 Ford Explorer Sport on Jan. 26, 2014 after ordering it on Black Friday. It's been one of the best cars as far as ride quality, comfort/amenities that I've owned in a long time....oh and did I mention it's a BLAST to drive. All this from a guy who is 36 years old and has owned 5 new GM trucks and a Yukon Denali in my life and at one point swore up and down that I would never buy a FORD But I do hope that the below issue I'm going to tell you about is fully resolved by my dealer and Ford to keep my trust in this company. BTW I now have 3500 miles on my vehicle. So I have some major concerns with some issues that I've been having lately. I wanted to bring it up here, because it's not a known issue, my dealer hasn't heard of it and I don't get ANY lights that come on when this happens. So here's the problem. About a month after owning it, I was travelling on the Highway....I was traveling about about 60mph ....I signaled to get over and gave it gas to speed up moderately to about 75mph or so. When I pressed on the gas the car basically almost stalled on me...it wasn't a transmission trying to think which gear to shift into issue, it was a straight choking of the gas and stuttering/hesitating until I let off the gas 2 times or so and then press down on the gas again and it takes off, but it a noticeable lose of power. This has happened now 4 times with this past weekend 3/30/2014 being the most recent. However the highway speed was the only high speed incident. The other 3 times that it occured were all in town, on one of them I was making a simple u-turn from a stop and when I pressed the gas (not heavily) to get up and out of the turn it stalled. The other time was passing to another lane and giving it some gas to speed up. This past Sunday I was travelling on a 2 lane road then changes to a 1 lane road approx. 100 yards after the stop lights. I was stopped behind a vehicle and when we started moving the vehicle in front was only going about 20-25mph in a 45mph zone. So I signaled and saw a van in the lane about 100 yards back so I pressed on the gas to get some speed to pass him before the lane ended and again nothing crazy just to get up to 45-50mph or so and the darn thing stalled on me again!!! This is now becoming a HUGE concern for me as I have 2 young daughters and a wife to worry about and I need a car that I'm confident in driving and need to know the power is on tap when needed to pass someone or to get out of the way if needed (like crossing a busy road where cross-traffic doesn't stop). Also the big concern I have now is that the family and I are planning on a cross-country road trip this summer from May 24-June 10 and we will be driving from Northern California to Niagra Falls and back stopping along several states of course and some more than just a night. Anyways as I've stated I'm already working with my dealership on this and I have a scheduled appointment next Tuesday to bring my vehicle in and keep it with them for a day to see if they can make it happen on their watch. Like I've mentioned no lights come on and after it happened the 2nd time I went to the dealership to pick up some items and while I was there I brought up the concern, and they hooked up a reader to see if they saw any error codes etc..and saw none. So I'm hoping and praying that they find something this time. I have even offered to stay with them for a couple hours and show them how I drive and try to make the issue happen again....so we'll see what they say. I wanted to get this out there to make everyone aware as well as to see if anyone else were having similar issues with their 2013 or 2014 Explorer Sport. I pray that a solution is found prior to hitting the road trip. Thanks!
  7. I am wanting KEYLESS Start on the Explorer, however, it's not an option and ONLY is available on the Limited. HUH ,...ITS standard on so many lower priced cars ,yet, the Explorer is not one of them. Tell me....does anyone else enjoy keyless Start.

    2013/2014 Ford Explorer Sport

    Getting ready to hopefully pick up my ordered 2014 Ford Explorer Sport next week. I have seen a lot of great write ups and videos about the vehicle. Anyone out there own one? Anything I should be aware of with the new Sport?
  9. Trying to configure a 2014 Explorer and there are two new colors listed that I don't believe I've seen in real life. The colors are "Sunset" which looks sort of red/orange, and "Dark Side" which looks no different than black on the little square on the screen. Are these colors used anywhere on cars already manufactured? I'd like to see them before I decide on anything. I'm especially curious about the Dark Side paint. Probably too much to hope for a matte color on an Explorer, yes? Thanks!
  10. Classy Ford Explorer Epitomises Luxury on Wheels Iconic Ford Explorer is Ford’s complete reinvented sport utility vehicle (SUV), offering customers an unmatched combination of convenience, capability and technology Ford Explorer delivers class-leading full-size SUV fuel efficiency from a proven 3.5-litre Ti-VCT V6 engine Available in XLT and Limited series, Explorer will be imported from the U.S. and sold in China, offering buyers an unmatched array of features Ford Owners Forum – Ford’s iconic Explorer – the vehicle that redefined a segment – is coming to China for the first time at 2012 Auto China, raising consumer expectations of SUV fuel efficiency, safety, technology, capability and quality. Equipped with twin independent variable camshaft timing (Ti-VCT) technology, the Explorer’s versatile 3.5-litre V6 engine serves up abundant power that complements the SUV’s formidable presence while using impressively less fuel. To be imported from the U.S., the Ford Explorer is one of the 15 global vehicles that Ford has promised to bring to China by mid-decade. With its potent combination of brute power and the finesse of a luxury suite on wheels, the Explorer will undoubtedly expand Ford’s SUV offerings in China. “The Ford Explorer delivers exactly what today’s SUV buyers are looking for, combining the capability, convenience, performance and technologies they want with the fuel economy these times require,” said Dave Schoch, chairman and CEO, Ford Motor China. “Explorer adds refinement to redefine what a modern SUV can be.” Quality everywhere you look On top of its clean, modern exterior design, the Ford Explorer aims to please SUV shoppers with a thoughtful, flexible interior package that abounds with clever storage solutions and generous head and shoulder room, three rows of flexible seating, and room for all the gear families invariably take along on their adventures. Ford Explorer’s design – inside and out – is executed with world-class craftsmanship. Tight margin gaps are indications of the painstaking attention to detail applied across the spectrum, from design through engineering and manufacturing. Quietness also signals quality to customers, and the Explorer delivers superior overall quietness and noise, vibration and harshness (NVH) control. The Explorer redefines customer expectations for driving dynamics and comfort – on any road, anytime, anywhere – while stretching the breadth of SUV capability with an intelligent 4WD system. The key to Explorer 4WD capability is Ford’s new Terrain Management System. Replacing the traditional SUV transfer case configuration, the new system takes the guesswork out of maximizing 4WD. Rather than having four-high, four-low and auto settings, the Explorer’s Terrain Management System is selectable by situation. The four settings – available by shift-on-the-fly – include normal, mud, sand and snow. Each setting provides unique engine behaviour, throttle tip-in, transmission shift scheduling and calibrations for traction and stability control systems. The Terrain Management System also includes Hill Descent Control™, which provides engine braking to increase driver confidence and control when descending a steep incline. More power at less fuel Driven by the commitment to give customers unsurpassed fuel efficiency, Ford has made special efforts to increase the Explorer’s fuel economy while ensuring the powertrain has the grunt to get the job done. Delivering 216 kW of power and 345 Nm of torque, the Explorer’s 3.5-litre V6 engine uses Ti-VCT technology that allows individually optimized camshaft timing of valve opening and closing events to improve fuel efficiency while delivering increased power and reducing part-throttle emissions. Mated to Ford’s six-speed SelectShift Automatic™ transmission, this powerful, flexible and efficient engine delivers superior fuel economy. To further enhance fuel efficiency, Ford engineers fitted out the Explorer with an electric power-assisted steering (EPAS) system to eliminate power drag and a variable-displacement air-conditioning compressor to reduce drag. They also endowed the SUV with slippery aerodynamic details including a harmonised front air dam and rear liftgate spoiler. Advanced safety innovations The Ford Explorer offers a stiff unibody structure and a class-leading suite of active and passive safety features and technologies, plus another Ford safety innovation – the world’s first second-row inflatable rear belts. Rear seat passengers – often children or mature passengers – can be more vulnerable to head, chest and neck injuries. Ford’s unique inflatable rear belts spread impact forces across more than five times the area of conventional seat belts, reducing pressure on the chest while helping to control head and neck motion. From the boron front bumper beam through high-strength steel side-impact tubes, the Explorer’s rigid body structure is designed to provide robust protection for occupants. In the instance of a crash, these elements come together to protect Explorer driver and passengers inside a safety cage of strength. The array of airbags includes first-row airbags, side seat airbags and side curtain airbags. In the event of an accident, the SOS Post-Crash Alert System™ flashes signal lights and sounds the horn. To help the driver be firmly in control of the Explorer at all times, the SUV also comes with the Electronic Stability Program which comes with a Curve Control functionality to provide optimised braking by each individual wheel. Loaded with features, convenience and connectivity From technologies that make driving easier to innovations that make the in-car experience more intuitive, the Ford Explorer just makes life simpler and better for the driver and the passengers. Key features include: SYNC® with MyFord Touch®: MyFord Touch combines the connectivity of SYNC with more than 10,000 first-level voice commands, a full-colour 8-inch touch screen in the centre stack, and two 4.2-inch LCD screens in the instrument cluster. All these elements create an interactive, rich interface that makes vehicle functions, settings and information easily accessible to the driver through voice, by using steering wheel controls or with a simple tap of the centre stack touch screen. Active Park Assist: The Explorer’s EPAS-enabled Active Park Assist technology gives drivers peace of mind when parallel parking. Once activated, the system scans for a suitable spot, calculates the trajectory and steers the vehicle. The driver continues to control brake and throttle inputs, while the system steers the vehicle throughout the parking manoeuvre. Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®): This sensor-based system displays an orange alert in the side mirror when a vehicle is detected entering a blind spot. Cross-traffic alert gives a warning if traffic is detected approaching from the sides, such as when the Explorer is reversing out of a parking space. Adaptive Cruise Control: This feature helps the Explorer maintain a safe distance to other vehicles. If the system detects that the SUV is moving too close to the vehicle in front, it decelerates automatically to maintain the pre-set distance. Once the road is clear again, it will then accelerate back to the chosen cruising speed. It has an additionalCollision Mitigation by Brakingfunction that automatically supplies additional brake pressure if a potential collision is detected. Additionally, the Ford Explorer has a long list of convenience features such as rain-sensing wipers, dual-zone electronic air-conditioning, and automatic headlamps that set it a cut above the rest. “The Ford Explorer simply does everything well,” said Schoch. “Certain to change market perceptions about SUV style, fuel efficiency, technology and user-friendliness, the Explorer will give today’s SUV buyers the attributes they really want and value.”
