      Just found out retooling begins March of 2019 and the plant will be shut down for 4-6 weeks.

      I wonder if the Exorer will drop the Sport and follow the Edge with a ST version.

      Peter, most times when they build prototypes which this would be at this moment, they use previous shells. So if this is a new platform, they would throw a 5th gen body on it. Testing powertrain and cooling, underbody, and electronics does not require the new body.

      They will mask and hide it for quite a while.

      And I'll add this looks very similar to the Lincoln Aviator that has been out testing. Who knows which one that is at this poin t.

      Do we know any of the rumored changes especially related to the powertrain?

      This is a guess only but I bet we see the 2.7L EcoBoost that's in the F150 now, as well we see the 3.3L EcoBoost.

      Just a guess based on their success in other models.

      There is no 3.3.. Only a 3.0 in the Lincolns

      I heard that the 2020 will look very much like the HSE RANGE ROVER....

      Did they fix the water pump issue in the 3.3L?

      I'd love to see:

      3.3L NA replace the 3.5L NA
      2.7L EB replace EcoBoost 2.3L
      3.5L EB replaced with HO version.

      But... how??? Lol.

      When did this come out? Without doing 30 seconds of searching, is this already available for the f150?

      The 3.3L isn’t an Ecoboost, it’s an updated and downsized version of the 3.x NA V6 the F-150 was already using. It’s been available on the F-150 since MY2018 began. Currently only comes with the old six speed transmission, not the new ten speed.

      Yes not an EcoBoost, kind of a weird choice for Ford to offer. I would have thought everything that small would be an EcoBoost and paired with the 10 Speed Trans.

      We have an 18 F150 XLT Sport at work that I have as a daily driver, it has 10 speed and 2.7L EcoBoost. The torque is amazing but I'm still a little hesitant about the 10 speed. Its good but sometimes gets confused.

      Not sure if that is the same 10 speed that is being used in the new Ranger but here some info I found on it.

      The new Ranger comes exclusively with the new 10-speed automatic transmission. This is the same gearbox that FoMoCo and GM co-developed, and has found itself slotted in everything from a Chevrolet Camaro ZL1, Ford Mustang GT, Ford F-150 Raptor, and Cadillac Escalade. It's smart, quick-shifting, and robust, so it should be right at home in the Ranger.

      I am assuming they have different versions of the 10speed just like they have different versions of the 6speed (6f35, 6f50, 6f55 etc). Trucks will have higher torque limits because of towing.

      What I read so far was that it was just a case change to fit the Ranger’s smaller frame, although since that was accompanied by no details, I too suspect it could be derated, since the Ranger will be offered with engines producing significantly less torque than the F-150 engine options. That said...is the Mustang version used on the 2.3L EcoBoost derated? Because that’s apparently the Ranger’s new engine.

      The only engine offered will be the 2.3L Ecoboost but it can be manufactured to output various power levels, possibly up to 350 hp as in the Focus RS.
      BTW, welcome to the Forum jo7hs2.:wave:

      That seems to go with more gears. Everything I've driven with early 6 speeds on up have gotten confused. I would think they'd be processing fast enough to handle it, but I guess not.

      Had.. There were a batch of motors that got the Mustang 2.3 HG which is different then the RS 2.3 HG. The gasket had an extra hole in it causing fluid to collect around the cylinder hole which then heated up and deteriorated the gasket.

      This was a supplier F up and was not caught during the engine building process.

      I STAND CORRECTED.

      I did some internet surfing and what I saw was not an Explorer...it was a 2019 Range Rover. I found some photos on the internet and that is what was driving around. The Range Rover sure had the markings of an Explorer.

      That is what the Explorer gets its styling cues from, that's why they look so close.

      So through someone at CAP, I just got confirmation that the 2020 Explorer will be RWD with an AWD option. It will be unibody still with an aluminum hood. Rest of the vehicle will be steal like it is now.

      Happy Saturday.

      I guess that means retaining the transverse mounted engine with internal water pump.
