    I think it looks pretty good. But it resembles the Edge just a little too much in the front. But over all I think it looks quite well.

    that is so old, cheap, and inaccurate it makes me cry.

    The Explorer was to look like the concept - Farly sent it back - he sad it "did not go far enough"

    you are too optimistic ausrutheford ...

    Ford might be on a good track, but it still hurting (just like any other bussiness these days) .... they are very much focusing on the key vehicles ..and stuff like V6 hybrids, series hybrids, their dedicated Extend hybrid vehicle, many of the EB engines, Bronco, etc etc etc - they will be pushed back ...

    there is very little money out there and in Ford coffers. And ford will do well to focus on the profitable core - not exotic hybrids that will probably lose money.

    I can see them pushing back the HySeries but not the V6 Hybrids, they need them!!

    I was hoping that headlight design was going to be limited to the Super Duty trucks for the reason that had been given, because the height of the trucks the headlights had to be lower...but I now see that was a farce, and we have ourselves a new means of tackiness to match the generic and dated, "Gillette Mach 3 inspired"..I mean handsome and elegant "3 bar" grill

    we have no clue how the Explorer's nose will look like ..
    that is just a CHEAP rendering ..


    From the Americ concept I proposed the look would be this:



    however we know Farley sent it back for a redesign .. so it will look different.

    The high beams on everything but the Sper Duty are on top so clearly you dont know what your saying. And for that matter the edge came out with that design before the Super Duty.

    Looks good, but I guess it doesn't matter if it's not going to look anything like it.
