Photospies filmed a full-size crossover of a new generation, which surprises the “face” a la Highlander of the previous generation. However, even more surprises are hidden inside.

The fifth generation Ford Explorer went down in history as a great revolutionary. Instead of the former frame SUV with a longitudinal position of the power unit, a fat crossover with a bearing body and transverse layout of the power unit appeared. His successor will inherit the basic style, but will noticeably change inside.

According to unofficial data, the main innovation will be … No, not the front end, suspiciously reminiscent of the Toyota Highlander, but the rear-drive platform CD6, which the new Lincoln Aviator has. Most likely, the basic version will have to be content with the rear driving wheels, and four-wheel drive will be offered for an extra charge. Please note that the change of the platform slightly affected the proportions of the car – isn’t the new Explorer faster than the current one?

The crossover debut is expected at the Los Angeles Motor Show at the end of November, so we will know the details of its filling soon. Insiders report that the big guy will get a 2.3-liter “turbo-four”, an atmospheric V6 of 3.3 liters, including as part of a hybrid power plant, and a 3.0-liter supercharged engine with a capacity of up to 400 hp. at sports version Expolrer ST.

Apparently, the new Explorer will be much faster and more agile than its predecessor. Suffice it to recall some information about the police version of the Police Interceptor Utility. Little is also known about her, but in the course of the tests, which were conducted with the participation of the Michigan State Police, she proved to be the most dynamic and fast “interceptor” of the New World. So, all-wheel drive modification has demonstrated the fastest acceleration time to 97 and 160 km / h, as well as the best lap time.
