The Ford Explorer team has been keeping busy. Very busy. The all-new Explorer revealed in the summer of 2010 was reengineered from bottom to top, and for the 2012 model, Explorer becomes the first Ford in North America to offer the all-new Ford EcoBoost™ four-cylinder engine.
But the team isn’t ready to take a break yet. Please join us at 2:30 p.m. EST on Wednesday, March 28, 2012, for a live chat with Eric Peterson, Ford Explorer Marketing Manager, and Bill Gubing, Ford Explorer Chief Engineer, when they’ll share exciting information about a new Explorer model.
Eric always wants to know what Ford SUV customers are doing with their vehicles, how they use them, and what they still seek. These interests are easy to understand, given his close proximity to customers. He joined Ford in 1991, working with the company’s Customer Assistance Center.
Bill is a native of Long Island, NY, and has been with Ford since July 2008. He is a disciplined business manager and auto enthusiast. “My college motorsports team leadership role was one of the best possible experiences to prepare me for automotive industry product development program management,” he says. “It involved process, people and product, under an umbrella of ultra-competitive team spirit.”
