Next-generation Ford Explorer to be based on car platformEnlarge Photo
It’s time Ford did something drastic with one of its flagship SUVs, which has had sales drop by 25% for most of 2006. The new Explorer will be closer to a SUV and drive like a car, the report claims. The move is proof that Ford is thinking outside the box when it comes to its SUV range. Considering Ford will still retain the Expedition – useful for customers that haul heavy loads – the Explorer doesn’t need to be another me-too product.
