Nuke - 2020 Ford Exploder

  • I know you like the Explorers from past posts. Quick look at the new 2020 Ford Explorer. I like it. Be interested to see the ST performance model for sure if it gets 400+hp. Drove the little Fiesta ST once, great little car for the $ IMO, I bet the ST team would make a very good Explorer. GM has their new performance Yukons/Tahoes now, the RST line, so the competition is going strong now from Ford with their ST line moving into the SUVs too.



  • I'd take a Tahoe over an Exploder.

    Of all tyrannies a tyranny sincerely exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies, The robber baron's cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience. — C.S.

  • Heh... I get it.

    I'm a Ford guy and that is truth. Their front end assemblies on the 4 wheel drive models have been shit since the beginning. I owned a late 90's one and currently own a 2014, it's the last one I'll own.

  • I'd go with a Tahoe.

  • My Tahoe has been great. one sensor went out and like all chevy trucks only one running light ever works at a time but.... hey.... big and comfy with a great drivetrain.

    You have no idea how many times I have given GM engineers shit over not being able to figure out why their running lights burn out so quickly. It's obviously a wiring issue but their response is always "that's not my part of the program".

  • You like the exploder because you've never driven a late model Tahoe.

  • I can tell you why the running lights burn out... and.. there is no solution. GM electrical engineers put to many things on the same circuit including the running lights... the running lights are the canary in the coal mine. and also act as a primitive fuse of sorts.


    Basically... it is an overloaded circuit.
