    I have a 2017 Explorer Sport with 33k miles on it. My wife and I just noticed its shifting hard around 40 mph. It seems to do it when taking off easy and its normally from 4th to 5th gear. Seems to do it when the Explorer has been sitting a while. And more from stop light to stop light driving. Anyone ever experience this?

    Welcome to the Forum Shane.:wave:
    There are several threads about different types of "hard shifting". My suggestion would be to take it to your dealer since it is under warranty. Have you checked the transmission fluid level?

    Could be low fluid or any number of things - worn valve body, bad solenoid, bad internal parts, needs reprogram/update, etc... most of which will not set mil/codes. Good luck.

    Ford is not known for smooth transmissions. Have 2010 f150 rental with 10sp... transmission gears hangs like nobodies business, like an old ax4s.
