Ground up redesign with a new chassis. Explorer's almost 20 year old Volvo platform isn't competitive with more modern designs like Dodge Durango.

 

There is a big difference between "isn't competitive" (it is) and "doesn't fit me very well".

Well since the Chicago show has come and gone, we aren't seeing a refreshed Explorer anytime soon?

One theory was that they were supposed to show it at Chicago, but the Expy event/rollout didn't go as well as planned, so they decided not to reveal the refreshed Explorer to maintain buzz for the Expy.

 

By extension, that could mean Explorer could get its' own event, or maybe it could be shown in New York?
