The new Explorer is coming though I'm a bit confused to as when it will arrive in NZ and Australia, the last I knew I heard it was going to arrive in NZ later this year?

Tell ya what, I like the look of that!
From memory I think that is the new one, a bit bigger and "tougher" than the current one. I think Ford done a bit of testing here in OZ.
I wonder if I could get one with a 5.4 in it?:p

Tell ya what, i'd prefer a Falcon R5 over an Explorer anyday - a Tickford VCT or Turbo would most likely flog the pants off a regular Explorer, it might even run up close to a 4.6 explorer, with power-to-weight ratios being taken into account..

We need the explorer now, even if the Raptor gets the go ahead its not going to be here for atleast a couple of years. I also can't see why they couldn't sell the two side by side, the more Ford products available the better.:D

I'm pretty sure the new Explorer is due for launch sometime towards the end of this year in Oz. I'd imagine that NZ would be around the same time but am not really sure.

The pictures are showcars but new Explorers, IMHO, look much meaner than the current batch. But there's not much great difference between them.

I agree Russell.Both are different vehicles with different potential buyers i reckon.

Here's an interesting photo.:D
Thats a picture of the Explorer Sport that they sell in the US. It's been pretty succesful and when i was in the US in July i saw tonnes of them.. Wouldn't mind them, I guess you could call it the modern day Bronco
