I didn’t think I had anything against the new Ford Explorer until a few days ago. Three identical Explorers were in my rearview. One in each mirror, it seemed. All three were exactly alike: late model year Explorers with silver paint. I had to do a double take to make sure I wasn’t mistaken. Afterwards, I was primed to see Ford Explorers and it appears they are incredibly common where I live. They’re everywhere. What new car do you most commonly see on local roads?
I figured I zeroed in on the Ford Explorers because I was looking for cops — for no particular reason. But these were silver not the characteristic white, which always makes me wonder just who buys a car in 2023 that’s so hard to tell apart from a police cruiser.
