I hear it has a whole lot of cup holders, too....at least compared to the Jeep.
Then again, you probably don't want a lot of beverages sitting about when you're...you know...off roading....
Probably the one thing the Explorer has that I really, really wish I did is the foot activated lift gate. At least the gate button on the Jeep is easy to tag with one finger, even with your arms full of groceries. I just really dig the idea of not having to try to juggle bags while messing with the gate.
