I have a good friend who just bought a dream 2016 Explorer Sport for his wife (and he gets to drive it). It appears that the heavier flap on the vent outlets is the only fix for earlier years, but...

Although Ford has been the top seller for 40 years or whatever, there have been many years the combined Chevy/GMC twins have beat them. Nothing new; a lot of it is based on what dealers there are in...
