Re: 2011 Ford Explorer's secret

237HP out of a 4 banger really isn't bad at all... I have a feeling that they will sell more of the 4 cylinder models than they will the 6.

If they were smart they would also offer the ecoboost V6 as well.

x2. There should be no reason why a engine made today shouldn't last longer than 200,000 miles

Re: 2011 Ford Explorer's secret

They're putting the same 4clyinder into our "Falcon" large saloon here. It too has traditionally been a large 6/V8 vehicle. Thankfully we're still getting it with the new 5.0 option though
