Family Of Fords

I have a ‘98 Explorer Sport that has been all over the Northwest. She has over 336K on her and has had nothing done to her engine except regular maintenance and changing a valve cover gasket almost 200K ago.
Our 2 girls were involved in just about anything a kid could do and most of my trucks mileage was in a 5 year period. They were showing horses, in band, dancing, playing basketball, volleyball, tennis, and on several travel select teams for softball and soccer.
When it was time for my husband and I to buy them cars, we bought them Fords. They have been reliable and are now off to college with them.
My husband has a Ford truck, of course!
Thank you for building vehicles we can depend on in a time of disposable consumption.

It would be great if Ford brought back the Bronco on an F150 frame as it originally was. I previously owned two Ford Explorers a 1999 and 2002 but I dislike the current styling of the Explorer and Escape. I would not consider buying one. They have lost the aggressive truck utility styling and look more like a van or crossover not something that should be taken off road or anywhere aside from hauling groceries or the family. There is a market for it and people who are looking for a true utility vehicle with the looks and ability of a truck.
