That's because that Explorer is running snow tires which make a HUGE difference.
You sure about that? It has the stock 20" rims on it and if you look towards the end of the video, within the last 10-15 seconds, it appears to say "Hankook" on the sidewall of the tires. It's not definitive, but the lettering looks like it could very well say Hankook.
Just to be clear the issue I have is getting moving in snow - once moving the Explorer does fine with or without TC.
Stopped by the dealer who basically told me there isnt much they can do without seeing the Terrain Mgmt fault when it happens since a code isnt stored for that. Hoping for another snow to get some more time behind the wheel.
I recently traded a 2014 Escape Ecoboost 2.0 and a 2014 F150 tremor for 2 Explorers (a left over 2014 Limited in Black, and a 2015 in White Platinum)
I can vouch for both the Escape and the F150 in the snow, but I have not been able to try either explorer in the snow since they were bought after our last heavy snow fall. However, I did manage to take my 15 through so snow covered spots on the streets where city plows had to maneuver around other vehicles. I did a dead stop in what was probably 6 inches of hard packed snow, let the vehicle sit for a minute and drove right out of it.
Both the 14 and 15 have the Hankook tires on 20's. If we get another blast I will go out and play, hell I even take my mustang out in the snow for SnG.
You seem to have some experience that we can all use with your
snow testing. Do your vehicles have either 4x4 or AWD?
