When it Hits: Production for the 2011 Explorer is slated for the summer of 2010 at Chicago’s Torrance Avenue assembly plant.

What Priddy Says: Judging from the exhaust setup, this particular mule sports Ford’s 3.5L, twin-turbo V6 Ecoboost motor. The Explorer should also be available with a turbocharged 2.0L four-cylinder when it hits dealer’s lots.
