    Coming from a 2011 that had 146k on it, it's definitely not low rent. And the $8k more I spent on this one from my last purchase over 8 years ago is fine by me.

    He has a lot of bad info in this video but regardless, I still can't get my cluster to change like he does at 10:05 in the video. Pressing that button just turns lane departure warning on/off and does not move the speedo to the middle of the display.

    Then you need to go to your dealer. That is the 1st button that is pressed to activate the whole hands free driving lane keeping feature.

    I had the same issue and turned this off: Distance Indication and Alert (page 266 in the owners manual).

    The only glowing reviews are coming from owners of the previous gens Ford Explorers.

    They are comparing same price points, not same trim levels. That will always give lower marks to a lower optioned vehicle. In reality, koreans have to give a better value/packages because they are Korean. I'd love to see the top of the line Korean models compare with the Platinum regardless of price point... a top of the line Kia/Hyundai should not be compared to a XLT which is the 2nd lowest trim of the Explorer.

    Ya, Will's response was spot on. Distance Indication and Alert (page 266 in the owners manual). I disabled that this morning and the speedo is now in the middle. Yay!

    All I did was enable the calm screen and selected that as the display screen. Then turning the lane feature on/off moved it. Didnt have to do anything Will stated.

    Interesting.... I saw a Telluride up close and personal as it was being traded on a 2020 Explorer Platinum and its owner was not impressed by it. Neither was I. I definitely did not like the looks of the Telluride on the exterior or the interior. The ass end is ugly as ****. Interior is so ...... ehhhh.

    opinions are like butt holes......we all have them and all are different. Doesn't make yours any more right than mine. I love the interior on the new Explorer ST

    My abridged review, my ST is not perfect and I have my complaints, but boy I sure do miss it when I'm forced to drive a rental.

    I did my own review. I test drove and thoroughly investigated several suv in the 5 and 7 seat classes. I'm not interest in some biased or ignorant opinion given by media types. Fake reviews imo.
    My money went on a 2020 explorer and we love it.

    Check out this short video from Wards. They say the 2020 Explorer is suffering from problems caused by disgruntled employees. With the amount of money they make, what do they have to be disgruntled about? Wish I made what they make.
