The exterior of the 2012 Ford Explorer has been completely reinvisioned, gaining a classy restrained front grill painted to blend seamlessly with the new more curvaceous body , shiny five-spoke rims, rear roof spoiler, and one-piece lift-gate operated conveniently from the key fob. Inside, the digital controls look as if they could operate a space shuttle.
In addition to dramatic aesthetic evolutions, there are other changes worth mentioning as well. For example, Ford has replaced the Explorer's cumbersome body-on-frame construction favored by pickup trucks with a unibody frame shared by the Ford Taurus and Ford Edge crossover. Moreover, the new Ford Explorer gains standard front-wheel drive and a powerful V-6 which delivers 20 percent better fuel economy than the outgoing model. Simply stated: Ford has miraculously transformed the Explorer from a rugged, gas-guzzling beast to a finely tuned, fuel-efficient suburbanite's dream, seemingly overnight.
