2011 Ford Explorer, is that you? - Click above to watch the video after the break (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/07/video-2011-ford-explorer-partially-revealed-during-seatbelt-air/#continued)

Sometimes, we have to wonder if automakers just like toying with the emotions of those of us who follow their comings and goings on a daily basis. How else can we explain how Ford would show up to the Shoreline Community College Automotive Center in Seattle with what appears to be the back half of a 2011 Ford Explorer (http://www.autoblog.com/tag/explorer) in tow?

It's not really possible to know exactly what it is that we're gazing at in the video pasted after the break, but it sure does appear to match what we're expecting to see from the first unit-construction Explorer from the Blue Oval Boys. Nowhere else is that more evident than with the sloping C-pillar, which looks like a dead ringer for the one we saw blowing in the wind on a car hauler (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/03/25/spy-shots-2012-ford-explorer-caught-completely-disrobed/) back in March.

No matter what it is that we're seeing in this video, the rear seatbelt airbag technology on display is definitely coming to a dealership near you, first on the - you guessed it - 2011 Ford Explorer. Enough talking already... check out the video for yourself after the break (http://www.autoblog.com/2010/06/07/video-2011-ford-explorer-partially-revealed-during-seatbelt-air/#continued).

Looks pretty good for what we can see. This is Ford just keeping the buzz going with the Explorer.

More i see the next Explorer, more i see it like a "Taurus wagon". Not a bad thing, of course.
