lasvegascolonel 5pts The Explorer continues to score lowest in comparison tests. Some criticized the MyFord system, but I don't think that should be a part of the rating for the vehicle itself. But as stated above, even Ford salesmen get tongue-tied when you ask them what the difference is between the Edge and the Explorer. Let's throw in the Flex...a wagon considerably smaller than the old Ford wagons but large by today's downsized vehicles. Maybe the new Explorer's ride has less to do with its shorter wheelbase and more to do with other factors. As owners of several Explorers (and 12 Fords) over 40 years, I'm sad to see what has happened. Like one of the writers above said, maybe an Expedition is the answer.
