2020 Ford Explorer ST
I have owned three Explorers over the last fifteen years, plus a Lincoln MKX. I now own a 2020 Explorer ST and will say it beats the other SUVs I have owned without a question. It is enjoyable to drive and living in CA cruise control was a waste until the ST came with Adaptive Cruise. Not sure where the blind spot issue is. Not to be mean but maybe you need to raise the seat a bit. I actually now look forward to going on long trips. If I test drove the ST and felt it had this many flaws I would have walked. I call them like I see them and mark me down as a very happy ST owner. Did I mention my wife and kids love it too? For the record, I have never misplaced a key fob for any of my four cars which all have key fobs.

It's mostly the 10 speed 4 litter engines. There were only like 1 or 2 ST owners from thousands complaining about engine.

Here's where that rotary shift dial originated. Has been also carried over in to just about everything else, including the 2020 Shelby GT500.
