The “Jurassic Park” Ford Explorer is Still Dino-Mite
One thing a lot of people, myself included, seem to recall about “Jurassic Park” is the Ford Explorers used in it. How could you not?
Modern day vehicles are full of modern day safety equipment and electronics. On top of that, there’s computers controlling practically every other aspect of the vehicle. But will all of this new technology make it difficult to repair and restore these vehicles in the future?
Back when the Ford Excursion was out, it got flack from some journalists for being too big to fit into regular garages. Those critics would verbally slaughter the 15,000-pound Excursion you see here. It makes the factory version look like a Smart car in comparison.
A Forbes contributor seems to know why Ford isn’t bringing the Ranger back stateside.
GM might have the only domestic midsize trucks on the market right now, but it doesn’t presently offer anything like the 1991 Ford SkyRanger convertible pickup you see here.
