I really do not know how I feel about this....
me too, Andrew
think my main disappointment is that KGP was able to get these photos
(think that's the first time I ever said That!)
my second disappointment, which I want to qualify by emphasizing that we haven't got a good enough idea of the overall SHAPE
of the Explorer, is
that it just doesn't feel like Ford put as much effort into its styling as they did with the Taurus, which is soooo beautifully detailed (until I saw one in person I'd thought it might be 'over-styled' ...it's not, it's PERFECT);
also it's not blocky('Terrain')enough to satisfy me in the opposite direction.
this Explorer just strikes me as too safe/undistinguished. Color may have something to do with it ... I hope
which leaves me with feeling that the capabilities of the new unibody platform had better be surprisingly 'robust'
since tho the ExplorerAmerica concept
could have sold on looks alone (imho), unless full monty photos change my impression, the production-Explorer won't
which is really too bad since imho the Taurus, Fusion, Fiesta, Edge MCE, even the Flex, and especially
the C3 Focus :drool:drool:
COULD be mediocre and sell just because they're so darn goodlooking.
