    Nay, the Freestyle uses the new CVT. Will the 6-speed be in the V6 Explorer or just the V8?

    (Why does the Escape only have a 4-speed, and a poor one at that?)

    Interior?

    Is that interior real or a mock-up? I see the speedo, tach, and acouple of tiny gauges in the corners that look like fuel and coolant temperature, but where is the voltmeter and oil pressure gauge (yes, I know the pressure gauge is fake)? Where is the 4WD hi/lo switch?

    Not to be the arguing type but the AWD Freestyle has the CVT, the FWD Freestyle has the 6-speed auto

    You are correct. Just at the front of the roof rack on the passenger side.

    why would anyone purchase that it sure isn;t a pick up...

    what is the bed on that thing. 3X3 what is up with that..
    as idiotic as buying a Mark LT from Lincoln...Pick up truck and Luxury doesn;t seem to match... Doubt you would see many work tools in them or at a muddy job site.

    alot of people have bought sport tracs and worked them. we had a 01. it hauled more stuff in the short few years we had it then we have ever hauled with our fullsize pickup w/a 8' bed . its a great little truck for somone that doesnt need a big huge truck. and with the bed extender its got a 6.5' bed.

    and the Mark LT is not the first lux pickup..ford has had the top of the line lux pickups for years(lariat,king ranch). and they have sold very well. i want a Mark LT 4x4 badly..lol

    i would like a mark LT too. i wouldnt use it like i use my dodge ram, but i prefer a truck to a car. so why not buy a luxury truck over a luxury car?

    first hand, i can say that the mark LT's 4x4's are SWEET...i only wish i had a spare $46K.
    back on topic, the 06 explorers are looking really good.
    that grille pictured is only on the limited, for all you who didnt like it.
    the xls will have a black plastic one and the xlt's will have one more plain and similar to the current ones.
    the eddie's will have a grille similar to the sport trac and fx4 f-150 with two vertical sections on the sides.
    and yes, that is how the interior will look. i like it a lot.

    the hp is bumped to 292(+53) and tq is up to 300(+18), on the 3 valve 4.6, also expected to meet ULEV (ultra low emissons vehicle) requirements.
    there is also a standard(w/v8) 6 speed auto, the first in the midsize suv class.
    it has that sweet console shifter.
    the sohc is at 210/254 with new cams and plugs for reduced emissions and lower nvh (noise,vibration,harshness) at idle. idle quality is improved 40% over previous.
    also standard is a tire pressure monitoring system.

    hey, not that insane, you can uhm, deliver all the hay in style along w/ going to the dump and being the focal point of everyone there. Personally I think its alittle too much, but go for it if you can justify that!
