    After a week with my new '17 Sport...

    Tires are so important. I just put new Continental ExtremeContact DWS 06's on our '16 Sport. Huge improvement over the factory Hancocks - which I hated.

    2016 Explorer Technical Specs / Dimensions / Drawings

    I think it would be easier to rig a switch to turn the panel on/off Something like this - my accent lighting is about this color. You can choose to match or not to most any color - back near the panel in a less vulnerable location...

    Floor mats/liners/cargo mats

    When we bought my wife's 16 sport we got the factory all weathers thrown in. They were horrible. The first good snow had water/slush/snow outside the mat quickly. Upgraded to WeatherTechs and couldn't be happier. Want a set of OEMs? Pay shipping from 80134

    2017 vs 2016 Questions & Opinions

    I considered waiting, but found the current UI more attractive. The climate controls move fixed the last versions issues IMHO. Although 3 is faster My dealer mentioned 3 will also have the GPS maps online vs the current SD card. Long-term this is worth something

    Time for tires

    In that size I'd go with Goodyear Assurance CS TripleTred All-Season. My wife had two sets of these on her Jeep before she got the '16 Ex Sport and we really liked them. Over 50k miles per set, good in all weather conditions

    Time for tires

    I don't think they are the upgrade tires. If I recall the Ford upgrade is to a summer only high performance and the Continentals are an all season http://www.tirerack.com/tires/tires.jsp?tireMake=Continental&tireModel=ExtremeContact+DWS+06&partnum=645YR0DWS06&vehicleSearch=false&fromCompare1=yes

    2016 Ford Explorer vs Jeep Grand Cherokee

    We just traded my wife's '03 3.7 jeep liberty ltd for a '16 sport. At just over 100k miles the jeep was starting to suck cash, so off it went. I've had a number of jeeps and other chryslers in my life and frankly all of them started having issues with transmissions eventually.

    2016 back doors wont unlock from inside

    Now that right there was funny ... LOL:D My wife's '16 Sport did/does the same thing. She has a very impatient friend who I thought was going to have a panic attack and/or rip the door handle off trying to get out of the back one night when we went out to dinner. I had forgotten about it...

    What is everyone paying for their 16 Explorer's? I just put a deposit down.

    The final price included my trade. I don't recall the inv price. I think even with the trade, I could have gotten another $500 off as I had another dealer offering the same vehicle w/the adaptive cruise for a little over $46k all-in, but my wife (its her car) wasn't interested and it left us the...
