Re: 2018 Ford Explorer
Critics have always hated the NG Explorer, but it's a good seller and people love it so who exactly is right here? If nothing else the Explorer is still a very attractive and well equipped SUV. A new one is coming in a few years which should help to finally modernize its ancient bones and make better use of Ford's excellent drivetrains. Most of the complaints comes down to subjective things like driving characteristics.
The thing that has always turned me off to any of the D3/D4 cars is the terrible front legroom which they noticed. It's the reason I wouldn't buy any of those cars. Ford is very good at sprucing up and successfully selling some of the industry's oldest platforms, but that means if they don't get it right from the beginning it haunts every vehicle for way too long.
The Edge is up there however and it's already getting a thorough facelift and it's underpinned by Ford's only contemporary platform.
