My New Ford

Couldnt help myself had to blab, wive needed a new car so I bought a Ford fancy that. Tried the rest bought the best.

You may ask what,

Ford Explorer XLT V8 of course.

Gotta say hard to get, dealers are whinging that Ford finally has a decent car and Ford USA cant supply because of demand.

Cool! Even the old model Explorer XLT had great features like traction control, dual airbags and ABS back in '98, and with IRS and greatly improved rigidity, the new one appears a big step forward again...

I know a guy with a superceded Explorer as his first car - and he has modified it with everything under the sun.

Congratulations on the purchase :)

Yeah test drove a Jeep Grand Jerokee found them to be really wierd suspension and brakes.

The new XLT is really good almost like driving a sedan, well heaps better than the Landcruiser.

I did look at a 98 XLT in 1998 but it wasnt the goods this model is great better than Mitsy, prado, jeep funny that Ford doesnt push them harder.

Ford USA doesn't supply Australia-bound Explorers/F-Series - Brazil do.
