Y'all quit yer bitchin, the Aviator could have been the XT6 and the XT6 could have been the Aviator! We just don't know how to win around here I guess!
;)

So true! The more I read about the XT6 the happier I get about where Lincoln is at! Just a few years back did we ever think Lincoln would/could step up to produce such a top notch, no excuses vehicle?



Lincoln fully stepped up to meet the true Euro competitors head on (and the Explorer comes along for the ride!) while Cadillac phoned it in and barely steps up above their Buick/GMC internal competitors.



Getting back to the Explorer, interesting that the 3.0 V6 TT can only be had with AWD on Explorer yet the Aviator will offer it in RWD.

Does the ST get a horizontal screen for better cog? lol





the 10" screen is an option, so they're just showing different trims with different options.

The previous model Explorer has better sales numbers then the new Explorer. I think the Palisade and Telluride has a lot to do with that! Many of the top of the line Palisades and Tellurides models sell at above MSRP! Ford really did not see that coming at all! It will be hard for Ford to make their dash and center console more upscale given it’s layout of the dash design for the refresh model. They are stuck with it!

Ford can do discounting to make up for sales but profit is what Ford needs! It sort of in a bad spot in SUV/crossovers. It good that the F150 and Ranger are good sellers or Ford would be hurting even more then they are.

At least based on 2020 Q1 sales, the Explorer is the best selling SUV in its segment.
1. Ford Explorer: 56,309 units
2. Jeep Grand Cherokee: 50,083 units
3. Toyota Highlander: 47,890 units

In the same period Hyundai sold 16,333 Palisade units and Kia sold 16,826 Telluride units.

All the top sellers saw a decrease in sales compared to the same period last year.
