    What I'm interested about is its new RWD platform with a semi-mid-front-engine layout like a BMW.

    Where did you seen the new explorer? That's possibly a grey market import.

    Sir Good evening po. Bago lang po ako dito sa Ford forum just want to ask po sana advise niyo since i have never own one but i am buying a Pajero sana kaya lang ang downside niya ay discontinued na ang production yata next year so my opiton is either a CX-9 or a 2.3 Li Ford Explorer.

    For its size po, yun bang 2.3 Li Ecoboost engine ng Explorer ay hindi underpower lalo kung puno at paakyat ang journey say Tagaytay or even Baguio po? Medyo malaki na po kasi ang V6 engine sa akin malaki na ang fuel consumption.

    Everytime i see an Explorer i cant help but admire it kaya option ko ito or CX-9 sana if i am not buying a Pajero.

    Is the 2.3 Li still a good buy - please advise po.

    Salamat

    The 2.3 is rated at 270 hp. And 400 NM torque. Thats MORE than the cx9.

    The 2.3 has way more power than the other SUVs ....pajero wont hold a candle to it in power.

    There is also a 500t discount as well for the 2.3L explorer and v6 3.5 explorer. Thats tremendous value.

    It will eat the climb up to baguio for breakfast. Heck even a regular Grandia with 120 hp will easily do Baguio.

    Im betting most people cannot keep up with the UV express Grandias that race up Kennon and Marcos Highway up to Baguio.

    The 2.3 EB was design for heavy duty use. It was meant for V6 applications. I think its in its 2nd iteration so higher reliability.

    Try joining their respective Facebook groups to gauge common issues to help you decide.

    Expect fuel consumption in the range of 5km/l city on these heavy turbo petrol vehicles.

    Both vehicles have more than enough power and torque compared to the usual crop of PPVs, vans, or small cars. Kennon Road will be no challenge for these two vehicles.

    If going for the Explorer, just go the whole nine yards with the 3.5L Ecoboost Sport AWD. The Mazda CX9 or Explorer 2.3L ainít going to be fuel efficient so just get the one with most power output.

    Go Explorer if you want more comfort and space. CX-9 if you want better driving dynamics and a nicer interior.
