    It is, SHO barely fits and the new Explorer ST is surprisingly a few inches shorter when I parked next to one to compare. So if the Explorer could tow a car it would be a perfect replacement. But full size car+trailer is going to be way over 4500lb limit.

    I like the expedition, wife does too. May end up in a short wheelbase expedition one day. She really likes the edge as well. Who knows what the hell we will end up doing lol

    It's a nice looking and intriguing Explorer package. What's MSRP on an Explorer Timberline?

    I’ve towed my 3800# GT500 on a steel car hauler with the previous Gen explorer and it did great. This new Gen should be as good or better.
    The money saved on the explorer over the expedition buys a decent aluminum car hauler.
    And be honest, how many times do you really tow?

    Did the same with a 2nd Gen Sport Trac, V8 - 6R80. It towed well.

    Seeing as the Aviator can tow up to 6700 lbs with a Class 4 tow hitch and both SUV's being similar. I will say the main culprit on the Explorer is the Class 3 tow hitch.

    If only it was possible to add a Class 4 on the Explorer....

    The Timberline looks pretty sweet, but I can’t for the life of me figure out why they refuse to offer the Gen 3 F150 Coyote in this platform.
