You know I dont care about the Timberline, right ;)
Just saying, we both lost. They went from like 9 trims to four.

Timberline was kinda hokey anyway.

IMO they could have dropped the other 7 trims and kept the 2 cool ones.
looks like ford is going back to being the vanilla of automobiles

To be fair I think a Outer Banks Bronco was probably cheaper, just as fancy and more offroad capable.

I just looked it up, a hardtop OBX and Timberline are basically the same price. If I was wanting that kind of a rig I would cross shop between them... and then one is just another Explorer with different tires and the other isn't. :dntknw:
