Saw one in the delaership down here only a couple of weeks ago and must say it looked good. A huge improvement on the previous model!

I havnt seen any yet, on the road that is. But they do look better than the older model. I hope they are better mechanically too as the older model, esp here with our rugged roads in Aus, the front suspensions, ball joints couldnt take much of a beltin.
I have driven an F-250 though, and I must say I was quite impressed, although it did shake a bit, but that was becasue it had an empty load.

From what i have read there has been big improvements everywhere on the Explorer esp saftey after the tyre debacle.I guess we will hear feedback from the owners before long. Hope it is all good as Ford could do with some good news.

The noticable change for me is the wheels no longer look as though they sit too far inside the body work
