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.

Yeah we already know

I've always liked it when manufacturers take pictures like this.

It’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.

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.

Are you blind? They don't look like each together.

The 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.

Maybe you're the fucktard here.

>>20236420
So a bunch of shit that has nothing to do with being rwd? Neat, dumbass benchracer.
>>
>>20236434
have a (you) fagloducci
>>
>>20236434
Are 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.
>>
>>20236450
Imagine benchracing crossovers lmao
>>
>>20236456
So 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.

>giving it more room, a better ride, more tech and better capabilities makes it appeal to a smaller market

Are you even trying kid?

At least I'm not delusional like you .

3rd gen was rwd essentially. Does the current version not have a tcase?
>>
>>20236480
>anyone on /o/

lmao

You're clearly delusional if you think your shitty attempt at trolling has been successful.

Never go full retard timmy.

>>20236492
>it's trolling because I'm delusional
Fucking lol.

>>20236483
The 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 sales
Yes, I'm the delusional one. Fucking idiot.
>>
>>20236512
It's not better at all? Like I said, you're delusional.

Yes, 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 radio

So clearly it's better in at least one way that even you agree with.

Now fuck off kid.

Dang, a bunch of shit no one buying one cares about.

A 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.

Sure you have kid, next thing you'll say you were only pretending to be retarded.

>>20236704
I 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.

Yeah 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.

3rd 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

>>20236591
Yes 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.
