2011 Explorer?!?! I really wished it had debuted at the New York Auto Show! Did I miss it?!?!

That's all...just ranting! The spy shots that recently leaked look pretty good, but I am ready to see it for real!

The front is Taurus X, the side is Saab-ish with a bit of Fusion Taurus thrown in, and the rear... don't wanna know. I'm expecting to be hugely let down by the design release. I like the current Explorer way too much.

I'm hoping to go to the NY show sometime this week if I can get an afternoon off. If I see anything, I'll let you know.

I wonder if Ford is going to actually keep it a real 4X4 or if they will just do trucks as 4X4's now. That looks like it would be ridiculously expensive to do the suspension if it's on a different platform. :confused:

That's probably not going to happen for me. Then again...

The Explorer has a been the darling of soccer moms for about twenty years now. This new version will probably fill that roll more adequately than the older series 1 version that I owned back in the ninties. It isn't a truck, and the women driving them don't want to be in a truck.

My guess is that it does real well in the consumer clinic, and just maybe the ticket to bring the Explorers back into every driveway. :shrug:
