Well, depending on where you drive...could be fishing related...but I digress. Any of the forum members who are long time Ford Explorer owners made the conversion to the 2011+ model years? We're in the market for a newer one but the wife doesn't like the new style (which is on the Ford Flex frame as opposed to the Ranger chassis). Many of the recent year models (also been looking at Escapes) have significantly less window visibility and bad blind spots. Reports suggest the new models ride more car like and the engine is an improvement on gas mileage. We have not test driven the new style just because the design...keying in on a 2010... recommendations?
