Ford to Invest $400 Million for Next-Generation SUV
"The new Explorer will redefine the SUV for the modern era - retaining the capability customers want while delivering superb fuel efficiency, comfort, and convenience," said Mark Fields, Ford's president of the Americas. The new Explorer will have at least 25 percent better fuel economy than the current model.
"Our Chicago Assembly Plant, with its excellent work force, lean and flexible manufacturing processes, and proud history of making great Ford vehicles, is the ideal choice for building the new Explorer," said Jim Tetreault, Ford vice president for North America manufacturing.
