      Both are 328 pixels wide, so the same. Optical illusion.

      I for one think the new one has taken a step backwards aesthetically. And smacking tablets in the middle is a poor choice. The front looks like a Ford Edge, although the grille is taking cues from Audi.

      I love pixel counting...have done that many times over the years in absence of available information. But, from https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ford_Explorer:

      1st Gen Width: 70.2 in
      2nd Gen Width: 70.2 in
      3rd Gen Width: 72.1 in
      4th Gen Width: 73.7 in
      5th Gen Width: 78.9 in
      6th Gen Width: 78.9 in

      You are correct same as 5th gen, but certainly wider than past, like my 2002!

      You should just buy one instead of lease and get one of those 8yr/36k warranties for $29.95

      I am a boat owner that owns a ‘12 expedition. I like the idea of downsizing to a Explorer.... is the 3.0 only going to be available on platinum? I’d like to test tow with new motor.

      2000 lb boat likely 3500 including trailer and gear... so I don’t think a 2.3 would cut it without shifting continuously

      Welcome to the Forum.:wave:
      the 2.3L Ecoboost is standard on all trims except the Platinum which has the 3.0L. I don't know if the 3.0L will be offered as an option on some of the other trims. In any case, the towing capacity with the factory class III package is 5600 lbs for the 365 HP 3.5Land the 300 HP 2.3L is 5300 lbs.

      I like it. not a big departure from the current version. I think I really like my 18 sport better right now. Something about that new front end I'm not sure about. also the rotary gear selector, not a fan. the 3/4 profile from the rear tho I really like.

      I'm driving a 2016 right now with the 2.3L Ecoboost, and it does not lack for power. It looks like the new 2.3L gets a bump in both horsepower and torque, so I would not be afraid to tow with it. I'll definitely be looking at a lease of this vehicle in about a year.

      Exteriorwise, really loving the back and side profile. Front is just ok, but I'm sure will grow on me. Sort of like the 5th gen front before the refresh. It was ok, but the refresh made it really nice. Interior, other than the dash is nice. Just can't get over that damn stupid dash with a shelf and tablet. It will never grow on me.

      This is why my '15 is such a tight fit in my '89 built one car garage! I could really use those 8 inches in the garage.

      Wow, did not expect such a detuned hybrid system compared to the Aviator. 318hp compared to 450.. 336tq compared to 600...

      And then on top of that, only a few miles on pure electric compared to the 30+ miles kf the Aviator. Big disappointment!!

      The ST looks very very interesting though.

      I was waiting for the ST but you raise a very good point, I'm kinda more interested in the Aviator.

      I'm fearful that pricing might be as stupid as GM did with the Tahoe/Yukon and make it unreachable to the average Explorer customer. Which is probably not who they want in the Aviator anyway.

      Demand on that Aviator will likely exceed production, especially since its being made in CAP alongside the 2020 Explorer.

      Not bad, I like the blue color on the explorer. I used to see it only with like 2014 Ford Edge Sport. ST model looks really good.

      Looks like they will come with Scorpion tires or something else this time. My 16 Sport Hankcooks are peeling at 22.000 miles.
