Details on the next generation Ford Explorer started trickling out earlier this year. We heard of its move to rear-drive longitudinal layout (yes, really) and the confirmation from Ford that there would be an ST model. Just last week, Ford revealed a powertrain diagram of the base 2.3-liter Explorer in an investor…
This past weekend, I found myself at a small gas station in San Antonio, Texas helping a random guy fix his junky, early 1990s Ford Explorer. After 20 minutes with no luck, he and I were about to give up, and I was about to—in a questionable move—give a random person a ride home. That’s when I had a stroke of genius…
There’s a new Lincoln Aviator coming and it’s a more interesting vehicle than you’d think. The outside says Range Rover, the inside says Mercedes and under the skin is a new rear-wheel drive unibody we haven’t seen yet.
Ford managed to pull off the Fiesta and Focus ST, two sporty and fun hot hatchbacks that this world needs more of. Then it brought an Edge ST to the Detroit Auto Show and we all let them get away with it. We shouldn’t have, because the company just confirmed the next generation Explorer will also get an ST trim.
Alright, so, Ford’s performance-oriented ST lineup is admittedly a little thin. But that’s fine, because Ford is going to give us an Edge ST and also, possibly, an Explorer ST, too. Nothing screams fun like performance crossovers and SUVs, I always say.
A second Austin Police Department officer has sued Ford for negligence, alleging the company failed to fix a known issue with its Explorer Police Interceptor SUV, which leaked carbon monoxide that poisoned the officer and resulted in nerve damage.
Ford, which has been dealing with hundreds of complaints for weeks over carbon monoxide levels in 2011-2017 Ford Explorers (even offering to buy one back), said Friday that they are offering to fix 1.4 million Explorers to prevent exhaust leaks. But don’t call it a recall! It’s not a recall, Ford says. Also, what…
A couple in Maryland says that Ford has offered to buy back their 2016 Explorer after company engineers detected carbon monoxide during a drive—though without recording a paper trail, according to News4. After apparently fixing the problem, Ford then offered to buy the SUV back.
The cat-righting reflex is actually a real thing, spawning the age-old saying that “a cat always lands on its feet.” What I didn’t know is that this massive Ford Explorer monster truck has the same reflex.
Austin Police Sgt. Zachary LaHood told CBS News he’s “lucky to be alive” after experiencing carbon monoxide poisoning from a leak in his Ford Explorer. Six other Austin police officers have also been treated for carbon monoxide exposure in the last week, so the department has taken 37 of its Ford Explorer Police…
Being pregnant, I’m told, sucks. At least that’s what my wife says. Perhaps that’s why this pregnant Asheville, North Carolina, woman decided to run over the jackass who broke into her Ford Explorer and stole her purse. After an exhausting day of pregnancy, maybe running the alleged thief over seemed like a pretty…
Quad exhausts are cool, mostly as a visual sign that cool noises and a lot of power might be coming from whatever the four pipes are connected to. That’s not really the case on the 2018 Ford Explorer, but it still looks cool.
When Ford started with its now-popular Police Interceptor Utility, a Ford Explorer police vehicle, it was easy to spot one from a quarter mile. You could then slam your brakes, get down to the speed limit, and goose it as the car faded in your rearview. But now Ford has new LED lights that make it damn near impossible…
Watch as this squad car chases after a red light runner and ends up crashed and flipped onto its roof before even crossing the intersection. Thankfully everyone made it out of this wreck with minor injuries but, just, wow.
The cop-spec 2017 Ford Explorer, known as the Interceptor Utility, is by design pretty tough to pick out from the popular civilian version. Now the police vehicles will be blending in even better.
The cop-spec Ford Explorer, known as the Interceptor Utility, has become one of the most popular cop cars for departments across the country. Unfortunatley that means some of them get in the line of fire, so Ford is adding optional doors they say can withstand armor piercing bullets. Want to see if they work?
Poor Matt Farah was trying to have a time of his life driving a supercharged Lamborghini Huracan in the canyons of California when he ran into this logger man, dragging a big chunk of tree just down the road. And breaking things.
The Ford Explorer is the best selling SUV in its class and older models stand up well to dinosaur attacks. What do you need to know before you buy a Ford Explorer? Don’t worry, we’ll tell you everything right here in the Ultimate Buyer’s Guide.
What do you get when you mix up an X5, an Explorer, and throw in a dash of Durango? You get the 2016 Kia Sorento, that just made its US debut at the LA Auto Show. It is easy to dismiss the Korean mid-sizer, but the Sorento may be the best alternative to the usual suspects like the Highlander and Pilot.
The latest version of America's most iconic SUV gets the 2.3 Ecoboost from the Mustang and a bit of active aero for reduced drag. Of course you can still have one with real wood on your steering wheel!
