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.



  • Yeah, I really do. I'd get one over any other vehicle.


    I'm not fond of the dash or instrumentation though. I like round gauges... they can have digital displays, but I like the round gauges with analog looking readouts.

  • Are you still driving for the ride sharing company?


    Do SUVs this size work ok for that kind of gig?

    I just got a job and and I'm going to Illinois Monday for training.


    The SUV is okay for for Uber....when you get the X rides you get more money, but generally no. Not good.

  • I'd take a Tahoe over an Exploder.

  • Heh... I get it.

  • They don't call em exploders for nothing.

    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.

    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".
