It may look like a refresh on the outside, but this Explorer is all new. Best of all, IT'S RWD. Worst of all, there's an iPad on the dash.https://www.autoblog.com/2019/01/09/2020-ford-explorer-revealed-rear-drive-platform-naias/
>>20233808Yeah we already know
>>20233808I've always liked it when manufacturers take pictures like this.
>>20233816It’s nice with the Explorer because they all have their own identity. It’s sad with BMW because you just get to see a good looking car get worse over time.
>>20233815Didn't see a thread, brother.
>>20233808>2020But we just started 2019?
Ford seems really devoted to trying to steal Nissan's title as the Scum car company...
they made the car itself larger but lost 3rd row leg room how in the fuck do you manage that and not try to fix it? Also that optional ipad display. Also ford. This thing will eventually lose favor to shit like the ascent or the durango.
>>20233816>show third gen refresh>doesn't show pre-facelift fourth genis Ford retarded?
>>20233816It's amazing to see the models size has grown but the elbow room hasnt
>>20233808Not digging the face tbqhwyfamalam
>>20233808Car and Driver gives it a 2.5/5, how good are their assessments?
>it's rwd who cares, it's a crossover
>>20233808It isn't awd?
>>20233820>It’s nice with the Explorer because they all have their own identity.Are you blind? They don't look like each together.
>>20236043The brand new one? I don't know how they've rated a car that hasn't been road tested by anyone buy the Michigan State Police yet. >>20236358That was literally his point, try reading.
>rwd SUVWho is retarded enough to want this or actually give a shit?>bitching about not having ugly and shitty plastic radioGet with the times fucktard
>>20236407>longer wheelbase = better ride and more interior room>higher towing capacity>allows for real 4wd instead of FWD biased shit>police buy the shit out of them and they prefer rwdMaybe you're the fucktard here.
>>20236420So a bunch of shit that has nothing to do with being rwd? Neat, dumbass benchracer.
>>20236434have a (you) fagloducci
>>20236434Are you literally retarded? The longer wheelbase is directly a result of the new RWD architecture. As is the higher towing capacity because it has a real rear axle now. What retard defends haldex AWD systems? And catering to a large market isn't benchracing you fucking idiot.
>>20236450Imagine benchracing crossovers lmao
>>20236456So making it shit and appeal to a smaller group of people is catering to a large market?Oh damn I forget how retarded this board is.
>>20236463>giving it more room, a better ride, more tech and better capabilities makes it appeal to a smaller marketAre you even trying kid?
>>20236473At least I'm not delusional like you .
3rd gen was rwd essentially. Does the current version not have a tcase?
>>20236480>anyone on /o/>knowing what the market wantslmao
>>20236480You're clearly delusional if you think your shitty attempt at trolling has been successful. >lmao benchracing>when nobody brought up hp or anything along those linesNever go full retard timmy.
>>20236492>it's trolling because I'm delusionalFucking lol.
>>20236483The third gen was still BOF and RWD/4x4. The 4th gen went to a unibody FWD/AWD. >>20236495>implying that making a car better is bad for salesYes, I'm the delusional one. Fucking idiot.
>>20236512It's not better at all? Like I said, you're delusional.
>>20233970That's increased side impact crash safety for you.
>>20236565AKA, the retard zone, usually your fault zone.
>>20236524>more power and torque in base engine>more torque in optional engine>10spd auto instead of 6spd>more towing capacity(up 75% in the base)>more interior room(ability to lay a 4ft wide piece of material flat)>more techYes, you're clearly a deluded retard if you think it's not better. and even to quote you>bitching about not having ugly and shitty plastic radioSo clearly it's better in at least one way that even you agree with.Now fuck off kid.
>>20236581Dang, a bunch of shit no one buying one cares about.
>>20236553A 1991 exploder started at $15k, which adjusted for inflation is $27k today. The exploder now starts at $32k, which really isn't that much of an increase considering just how much more car you're getting.
>>20236618Nope, I've stayed the same this whole time...you however done went from the 50 to 100 yd line
>>20236625>I've stayed the same this whole time>>20236434>i'm too stupid to know the benefits of the new chassis: the post>>20236463>making it better will make it sell worse>>20236524>asinine baseless claim that it's not better in any way>>20236587>completely dodging measurable facts that prove it's better in multiple ways alreadySure you have kid, next thing you'll say you were only pretending to be retarded.
>>20236625God damn you're fucking stupid
>>20236643Hmm, so I've stayed the same, thanks for collecting it all in one post
>>20236676No problem, now you can see how retarded you've been easier!
>>20236691Hmm, all it's done is put light on your mental shortcomings but whatever.
>>20236702I agree, your attempt to save face has been lackluster.
>>20236704I have no need to safe face, unlike you. You have made no valid point since you entered the thread and have bounced around from "god why are you complaining about a modern radio" to "it's not better in at all". Then make the absolutely laughable claim of staying on track. Maybe tomorrow you can try again boy.
>>20236718>I have no need to safe face, unlike you.>safe facelolSorry pal, I've stayed the same path thi whole time.
>>20236754>has nothing to hang on but a typoLol, Must really chap your ass eh kid? >pic related - your path
>>20236799Nice cartography, mine is more accurate.
>>20236811In your warped mind maybe. But I've never seen a straight path go from >bitching about not having ugly and shitty plastic radioto >It's not better at all
>>20236553Yeah but anyone can afford anything now if they make payments
its being built on the mustang's platform, hence the RWD
I'd take one, drop it couple inches and then drift it.
>>20233961>>202339613rd gen is hardly a refresh, from someone who has owned both second and third. IRS, New wheels, 4.6 instead of the 302, the 5 speed is a revision as the 5r55w in early production then switched to 5r55s for the majority. BW4410 transfer case from the BW4405 in the second gen, new interior, new exterior, more features and a lower ride with a third row. Also now has its own dedicated slightly more beefed up frame rather than being built on the ranger platform.This was the largest advancement in the series outside of fourth to fifth. You also meant pre face lift fifth gen.>I think you are retarded
>>20236591Yes but wages have not gone up that much. The median income in 1991 in the US was 53k, today it's closer to 60k. Adjusted for inflation, 53k in 91 had the same purchase power as about 100k today.
>>20233808>AutoWhy is this something you would want to even talk about?
>>20233816WE NEED TO GO FATTER
