After never having seen a new GS ever on road...far upstate NY the last week, I counted 3 of them.
Nondescript, and not as interesting as the previous one in some details, but bigger and smoother. Good look on road, and total sleeper. Nothing looks different, at all. Add in white, gray, and silver as the 3 I saw...and nope.
After a couple thousand miles in a 2.3T/10-speed 2019 Mustang convertible, and its horridly uncomfortable seats and interior, but amazing drive quality and feel...I'm looking forward to the new Explorer.
Funny how not everyone knows it's new, but the ground up remake is massive, RWD base and getting rid of the previous awkward space inside. Too bad, as with most, the interior is a lot of cheaper bits, and blah black plastic design. Not been a fan of Ford's gray & white IT coding looking infotainment either, or how it operates day to day.
But...looks like a GREAT package with guts to back it up. Already seeing them on the road, quite a bit in the northeast.
Great review, especially of the overall feel and dynamics, 2.4T included.
We continue to be impressed at the feel and feedback everyone thinks of with the 2.4T, and look forward to it in my upcoming 2020 Outback on order. The Ascent is "not a bus" like a Traverse, etc. can sometimes feel. This is a heavier, larger, etc. vehicle than any other on the global platform, so it goes down the road with a different refinement than something like a Forester.
Very rarely does anyone who's not familiar, even notice a Subaru is a CVT, with the stepped programming. You usually do, if higher RPM or cruising, and ask for more power, when it doesn't "step" as much so to say. Good & fair write up👍
Another weekend in the islands. Saw this sharp 55 Chevy Bel Air convertible on Kelleys Island. Also saw a sharp yellow Jeep Commando and a couple out to pasture 59-60 Ford pickups. Saw a few tiny Suzuki Kei vans and crew cab pickups. Beautiful evening sitting here waiting to drive on the ferry. It’s refueling from an 80s Ford tanker truck in the old Sohio paint scheme. Beautiful place.
