2011 Ford Explorer Finally Revealed

Those who been mentally tortured by Ford’s lame teaser regarding the new generation Explorer are now relieved as the company finally releases the car!

The other option for powertrain is the 3.5-liter Ti-VCT V6 engine, delivering an estimated 290 horsepower and 255 lb.-ft. of torque. So no V8s available. Also the base models feature front-wheel-drive and you have to pay extra if you want four-wheel-drive.
