This is a freestyle/taurus x with a front & rear fascia treatment. nothing new here. sorry ausies
Right. I'm figuring, maybe 2 or 3 dollars to convert the interior, steering column, suspension, possibly exhaust to the other side. Piece of cake. Let's add the cost of sticking explorers on a boat and shipping there. That can't cost more than a couple of bucks.As opposed to a refresh.Let's go to wikepedia.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_ExplorerSales:2008 78,4392009 52,1902010 60,687They couldn't give away the old model in the US anymore with sales only 1/7th of their 1999 high and you want them to engineer a version for Australia.I suppose you expect gas prices to fall to 2 bucks also.
poor application of Ford's new design language. This look, also seen on the Vertrek (Kuga/Escape replacement) was originally supposed to debut on the Ford Focus, and most of it was preserved, but the three iron bars did not make it on to there.
considering the differences in taste betwn the US and Australia, imho it's an excellent interpretation of Ford's design direction&makes me think the refreshed Falcon will be MUCH closer to Global appeal
The refresh is hiding a new 2.7-litre turbo diesel. Great engine and great car. In Oz, the Territory is often described as a poor man's X5. Rides and handles brilliantly for the big brown land.
Its not a Freestyle at all, and never was. Sorry anonymous Yank.
Looks like Ford stole a few notes on front end design from VW and Kia.
The Explorer is better looking than a Territory? Right, and Hillary Clinton looks better than Elle McPherson...
Not even remotely related to an explorer or Taurus.Engine runs longetudenally not transversely.2WD version drives the back wheels.Don't judge everything on looks or you will be wrong.
