Sneak Peek - 2006 Ford Explorer
Ford Motor Co. is freshening the appearance of the Explorer sport utility vehicle and its companion, the Mercury Mountaineer, for model year 2006. The Explorer gets a restyled front end, including new hood, grille, headlamps and bumpers, plus revised taillamps. Inside, the '06 Explorer gets a redesigned instrument panel, with all-new gauges and controls, as well as updated seats, steering wheel and door trim. Under the hood, Ford plans to update the Explorer's engine family and reportedly will offer an optional six-speed automatic transmission for the first time.
The black covers are on the Explorer because they don't want anyone to really see what the new changes are. This would tell us there is substantial changes to the Front and Rear ends of the car. They will cover all the areas that are new and it's not surprising to see cars that are totally covered. Very common to see these driving down the road in SE Michigan. If your in the areas of the HQ for the any car company you will see a lot of these.
