Ford Teases 2011 Explorer
.Ford still has yet to publicly unveil the all-new 2011 Explorer, but to whet our appetites, the automaker has pushed some cheeky teaser shots out on its Facebook page.
What can we tell from these shots? Well, little, apart from the fact that Ford employees took an Explorer prototype into the woods for some photography. We do, however, gain a few extra details -- for instance, designers have blacked out the A-pillars, allowing the crossover's daylight opening appear to wrap around the front of the vehicle.
As we've reported several times before, the new Explorer will shift from being a body-on-frame SUV to a unibody crossover, sharing a platform with the Flex and Taurus. Power will certainly include Ford's new 2.0-liter EcoBoost turbocharged I-4, although a number of V-6s -- possibly even the twin-turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost mill -- are reportedly under consideration.
