A very interesting short video popped up on the Ford YouTube page today. It shows fleeting glimpses of a very beefy sounding Explorer with a small announcement about a March 28th unveiling.
Could this be a twin turbo Eco-Boost Explorer? The blurb in the video description states: “Please join us Wednesday, March 28 at 1 p.m. EST / 10 a.m. PST on http://www.facebook.com/fordexplorer for a live webcast where we will share exciting news about how we plan to expand the Explorer lineup this year by adding an exhilarating new model to the family.”
At least we won’t have long to wait. With the success of the SVT Raptor and the power and functionality of the Eco-Boost and everything it touches, it wouldn’t surprise me at all to see some sort of new Explorer Sport or SVT Explorer. It’s great to see come car companies don’t mind stepping outside the norm even in this day and age. Fingers crossed!
