After numerous teasers Ford has finally taken the covers off its latest iteration of the Explorer SUV.

The 2011 Explorer has been developed from scratch and for the first time features unibody construction as opposed to the traditional ladder-on-frame structure of previous models. This means the new Explorer is geared to offer more dynamic handling and better control compared to its predecessors.

The 2011 Explorer also moves to Ford’s new corporate look with ‘kinetic’ styling on the lines of the Ford Taurus. Also, like recent models from Ford the new Explorer’s interior is vastly improved with a new design, layout and materials.

The new SUV can seat up to seven adults across its three rows and offers more comfort and safety equipment than the previous model.

The 2011 Explorer will be available with a choice of engines including a 2.0-litre four-cylinder Ecoboost motor with 237bhp and a 3.5-litre V6 with 290bhp.

Both engines are mated to a six-speed automatic transmission and the V6 model comes equipped with a four-wheel drive system with Ford’s new terrain management system. Ford claims that the new range of engines offer class leading fuel economy.

The 2011 Explorer will be built at Ford’s Chicago manufacturing facility in the US and will come in base, XLT and Limited trim versions. Production begins later this year.

We’ll let you know when the Explorer is due to arrive in the Middle East as soon as possible.
