I actually like it and I’m putting it in my consideration once it hits the showroom.
Yeah they're built in TN. The interiors aren't bad and have the same hard plastic in the same spots but soft touch in the upper portions as the Grand Cherokee which is technically one of it's competitors. Going from an Atlas to a Merc is a pretty big difference. I would have went with a q3 is wanting to stick with the same platform.
I would get one if i wanted a suv/cuv but i currently have a car on the same platform and love it. Less issues then another of our current and past fca vehicles had
Would have been nice if they had put some more engine in it too. The current offerings are lacking...the Atlas is almost a sec behind 0-60 the Kia and JGC.
I have been looking for SUV for a quite some time now, and there is nothing that I like.
I’m waiting to see the new JGC and JGW, but the Atlas Sport Coupe is coming in the 1st quarter of next year, which shorten my waiting for Jeep models.
I like the VR6 engine, and it is most likely the one I’d have.
The VR6 is fine...just would think the Atlas Sport would have a bit more sport under the hood too. That's a miss in my book.
Well for me, I have many options, and I could get any suv right now. The wife & kids are pushing me to get X7 or Navigator.
But in my heart I want a jeep. it’s a type of vehicle that can get you anywhere.
Well, it's a GLC, FWIW.
Ford is having massive quality control and manufacturing issues with the 2020 Ford Explorer (and the 2020 Lincoln Aviator): Mysterious problems disrupt delivery of 2020 Ford Explorer, Lincoln Aviator (at https://www.freep.com/story/money/cars/ford/2019/09/13/ford-2020-explorer-lincoln-aviator-delivery/2292795001/ )
I’d bet that many people are going to regret buying a 2020 Explorer.
Both the 2.0t and the vr6 are very good engines in their own way. If you ever end up wanting to mod/get more power easier the 2.0t is the way to go but the vr6 is pretty much a bullet proof engine
Oh that is such a shame
There are so many after hours rework on these they are losing a ton of money right now. Shipped out to a Mustang plant for repairs. What's worse is the fact that they haven't made a dent in the 'process' which is what got them in this situation in the first place. Signature vehicles that can't be fixed fast enough to stay in the sales channel is killing them. More press to follow and this could really hurt Ford. Surprised more attention hasn't been there but I'm sure it's going to change quickly. Not good for sure.
FCA I hope yall are taking notes........
Ehhh, the Telluride looks better to me...a much cleaner design than the Lincoln.
Personally I reeaally like the new Lincolns, but now I'm also really wary of Ford's apparently abysmal quality control on these and the Explorer, as reported in the Freep article linked above (and by me a few weeks ago). It's sounding like complete chaos over there -- total amateur hour.
My mom is a decades-long Ford lessee, and she just passed on a new 2020 Escape in favor of a leftover 2019 (basically unchanged from her 2016 Escape). She didn't want to roll the dice on a new Ford model on a new platform. And if it actually turns out to be good, then she'll just pick one up on the next lease return.
Me waiting Wagoneer
Yeah they did a nice job with those pair of SUV's and they priced it right where it should be . I havent heard of any glaring issues right out of the gate either . As for me i'll take my new 2020 Durango . Love it so far . Hopefully the long term reliability is good .
Family member bought the new Aviator and so far hasn't had any problems. It's the best effort at a luxury model I've personally seen come out of Ford in a very long time. Granted, hers is a Black Label model but it sure was purdy.
We were considering looking at an Aviator when we start shopping in a few months, but then we look in our back seats at the mess our soon-to-be five-year-olds leave in all of our cars and we soon realize that it wouldn't be worth it. Plus the dogs will have to ride in the way-back too, and their manners are only slightly better than our kids.
