    Still the same platform which was released around 2021 locally. Lighter aluminum body with a more powerful 2.3L Ecoboost engine paired to a 10-speed AT tranny. Only AWD model is available locally.

    Yung prevous model had 2 trims - FWD with 2.3L Ecoboost and AWD (Sport) with the 3.5L Ecoboost. Laki ng discount offer ng Ford dito when they were clearing their inventory in 2020. Parang 500k discount.

    At 2.998M, the Explorer AWD 2.3L Ecoboost has a lot more to offer compared to its nearest rivals - Mazda CX9 AWD and Subaru Evoltis. It offers more interior space, cargo capacity, and more grunt (more power and torque). Even EQ would say that the Explorer is even more loaded with features compared to a BMW X5 which cost 2x more.

    Now, if you want a sleeker 7-seater with a more driver-focused handling but at the expense of space and cargo capacity, then go with the CX9. You can even just get the FWD version at around 300k less than the AWD version.

    Hard pass on the Explorer. I have two friends who have both had a terrible time with their 3.5 Ecoboosts. Christmas tree, falling headliner, sabog tranny.

    Ford was charging an arm and a leg pa to repair (close to the second hand selling value of the car) so he had to find a tranny from the USA and import himself to fix.

    That's not the same model of explorer in this topic though.

    "sabog tranny."
    does that mean, the gears are physically wrecked,
    or does that mean, "we don't know what's wrong with it, so let's just replace the whole assembly" ?

    I was thinking the same thing. Some people abuse and neglect their vehicles, or maybe its a lemon. Might be better if the owner himself were to narrate the facts.

    Probably the latter. Unlike CVTs, repairable naman ang automatic transmission ng ford. Maybe he didn't want the hassle of going back and forth if the local transmission repair was f'd up, so he just bought a new assembly instead.

    Transmission issues are common problems with Ford Explorers ... even Ford Rangers had similar issues ... we cannot assume that these owners have neglected their vehicles ... if there are indeed owners like these, then we should be hearing transmission issues with other brands and there should be more problems with Toyotas since they have almost 50% of PH market ...
