2011 Ford Explorer

2011 Ford Explorer



Ford has done everything in its power to bring the Explorer nameplate back to the front of the SUV class. With modern sheetmetal, powertrains, and technology, you might think the automotive press would be singing its praises about the new Explorer.

While some outlets, including High Gear Media, are fans of the new 2011 Ford Explorer, Consumer Reports is not. In its most recent test of crossovers, it put the new ute near the bottom of its class, singling out the complex MyTouch system and handling for criticism.

SocialCarNews.com wants you to weigh in. Do you think the Explorer's better than ever, or is Consumer Reports right? Tell us via your Tweets whether Consumer Reports is right to drub the 2011 Explorer. Just tweet your answer, and make sure to include the hashtag #Explorer--and you'll join in the chorus here via CoverItLive.

  1. I think Ford's new style Explorer is a true winner in most ways. It has a host of high tech safety options available along with a long list of comfort and conv. items. I would have liked to see their new Eco-boost engine available now on their all-wheel drive not just on their FWD. Also the premium price adding on the Eco-boost far out weighs the extra mpg you get, especially at the $4.00 gal price range.

    Bad stuff?

  2. As usual, CR downgrades a vehicle for reasons that have nothing to do with the real world. Folks won't buy the Explorer for My Ford Touch alone. And the handling may not be sports car like, but it's an SUV! The new version looks good, have very good quality levels, all the requisite safety gear, plus and new efficient and powerful engine choices. CR lost me years ago when it continually slammed Mercedes. Since '92, I've owned 6 different Benzes by choice and never encountered CRs supposed issues.

  3. As usual Comsumer Reports is working against America and the products we manufacture. I'm not sure what's their motivation but the trend continues againist an excellent new Ford Explorer.
