The much awaited new generation 201Blue Oval1 Ford Explorer has been unveiled for the public view at Blue Oval. The 2011 Ford Explorer will be offered in three equipment levels, Viz. base, XLT and Limited, and under the hood there will be a new 3.5-litre V6 with 290 HP and 255 lb-ft of torque with 20% more fuel economy than 2010 model.
Getting the Explorer right could extend Ford’s recent winning streak. Last week, it reported $2.6 billion in earnings for the second quarter, based primarily on sales of its car models. SUVs and trucks traditionally have been far more profitable for automakers, so if Ford can woo Americans back to Explorers, it could mean even higher profits. Pricing has not been announced for the 2011.
