VIDEO: 2011 Ford Explorer Prototype Testing

TUESDAY, JUNE 29, 2010

Ford has dropped some new teaser footage of a camouflaged 2011 Explorer, with the vehicle's Program Manager, Julie Levine, describing how the new SUV is being put to the test in various on and off-road tests. The new unibody Explorer will be unwrapped in July and go on sale in the States later this year.

It will be offered with the company's new 2.0-liter Ecoboost turbocharged four-pot and a 3.5-liter V6 engine in both naturally aspirated and twin-turbocharged versions.

Tech highlights include a Land Rover-like terrain-management system and a new Curve Control safety feature built on top of the existing roll stability control (RSC) and electronic stability control (ESC) systems that can apply four-wheel braking and/or rapidly reduce torque to cut speed by up to 10 mph in approximately 1 second and help keep the vehicle under control.
