Bought a new vehicle over the weekend
 
A 2013 Ford Explorer Sport

Good news is that I had a 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo X with the Hemi (28000 miles) and the dealer gave me $29,100 as a trade. I did not expect to get that much but he said he really wants the Jeep now that the weather is bad here in Pittsburgh.

I will definitely miss the off-road ability of the Jeep but will not miss the dealers or all of the annoying little issues I had with mine. Hopefully I have better luck with the Ford.

Yea but the only WK2 I have to worry about is an SRT, even a tuned wk2 isn't as fast as the stock Exploder. :)

I will be on the Explorer forums yelling at the people who bought the 4-banger motors :) :) :) , someone has to keep it up over here though with thouse lousy v6's :slapfight:

I guess soccer moms, and dads, like to go fast in their SUV's on the way to practice....or the mall.

Congrats, or something :D But seriously, those Explorer Sports move.

I have a Polaris RZR, 4 dirt bikes, and a 95 TJ with a 4" lift. I have the off-road stuff covered. I do drive on the beach on vacation though, hopefully the Explorer does decent there. I know it will not be as good as the WK2. The jeep was very good off-road and I liked the 4-low option. I didn't use it more than 2 times in the 2 years I had it though and it was only for showing it to people.

oh well. Other than the off-road ability, the Explorer is a lot nicer.

Ok, I'll bite... in what ways is the Explorer nicer?

I like the Ex Sport as well, and considered it, but I think I will pass at this point. The issues with MyFord Touch are too bad to ignore IMO.

the only step down is off-road ability. The Explorer handles better than my Jeep, gets better gas mileage, is faster, interior is opinion but I like it just as much as the Jeep, the radio is better. And the big reason, it's not a Dodge.

The MFT system is perfectly fine if you are smart enough to work it. I had no problem figuring out how to do stuff.

I thought I would use the off-road ability of my Jeep more but really don't think I will miss it.
