      I think the theory is if you want 7000lbs of towing they want you to buy an Expedition, not an Explorer.

      Not sure if you read through this whole thread but earlier in it I posted it will be RWD and have an AWD option.

      The problem with FWD applications is it is harder to build high powerppwered vehicles due to wheel hop (weight shifts to rear on high power take offs), the fact the trans has to make a U turn to get the power to the drive axle and the understeer.

      With RWD, you have the driveshaft coming straight out of the trans to the rear diff. You can build higher more reliability trans with RWD easier.

      Now the question is, how will they have the add set up. One rumor floating around was electric motors on the front wheels since we know there will be an electric version of the Explorer.

      Also hearing the Aviator will be revealed at Chicago Auto Show (rumor) so we may have a better idea today.

      I don't see it happening either. Explorer is staying Unibody, because it's a soccer mom car. I'm fine with that.

      I guess no 2020 Explorer or Aviator debut at the show eh? This show is a dud. Biggest debuts are a new trim on the Traverse and a custom striping option on the Durango. Snore.

      This looks exactly like this mule from a long time ago. This is not a 2020. It was the 2018 mule. This video is dated May 2017.

      Did you read this thread before posting that? Not trying to sound rude... just wondering if you had because it was essentially posted in #27, 30, 36, 49 and 50 all had these articles linked.

      I know sometimes people just click on the last page and post rather then reading through a thread.

      Any thoughts on whether a 2020 ST model will carry brake and suspension upgrades similar to the Sport?

      The Sport does not have brake upgrades. All Explorers have the same brakes beginning in the 2013MY. The ST replaces the Sport so yes, it will have better handling suspension.
