Recommended Posts

Is there any plan on a Sport Tac in the future of the Explorer ??

Not very likely. Rumor is at some point, the Explorer will switch to the CD4 platform, and away from the D4. I don't think the CD platform will have the ability to put a bed on it. Not without major changes.

I would think that something along the lines of an Expedition based sport trac could work, but since volume would not justify the expense, it is highly unlikely that it will ever see the light of day.

It's certainly possible but I don't think the volume would justify the investment compared to dozens of other potential products in the pipeline.

 

It's usually not a case of "we don't want to do that" - it's usually a case of "this one requires $X investment with Y ROI" and it's much lower in the list than these other 30 projects and we can only fund the first 20 projects.

Given what appears to be the ultimate fate of the Avalanche, I doubt we'll see a similar effort from Ford.
