    Rumorpile: Is Ford Planning a Plug-In Hybrid Explorer Variant?

      If you look at the signs....

    Ford released details on the Ford Explorer Hybrid at the Detroit Auto Show this week, but a Plug-in Hybrid wasn't mentioned.  Curiously, at the Ford stand, the sign next to the hybrid version of the Explorer mentioned it as a Plug-In.  One of the engineers standing nearby told me this was a misprint, but that is a pretty serious misprint to make and then actually put on the show floor.

    We do know that the Explorer platform is capable of being a plug-in hybrid as its stable mate over at Lincoln, the Lincoln Aviator is getting a plug-in hybrid in its GT form

    Is it likely that Ford is holding back on announcing the Ford Explorer Plug-In Hybrid just so that the Lincoln Aviator can get some traction with its version first?  Sound off below.

    It might not be called an Explorer.

    I figured it out.  A back to the future Bronco II is built on D6, and it's getting the double whammy wombo combo 450 HP 600 TQ drivetrain!
