Well, not exactly, but next Monday you'll have a chance to be a part of automotive history and be one of the first people to see the all-new 2011 Ford Explorer.
FoMoCo is hosting an unprecedented simultaneous nine-city reveal of its new midsize SUV. Seeing as the new Explorer is likely to be built in Ford's Torrence Avenue assembly plant, Chicago is a key market for one of the most-popular SUVs of all time.
The launch will take place on Monday, July 26, at 10:30 a.m. in Millennium Park, Chase Promenade South. In attendance will be Bill Ford, Ford executive chairman, Jim Farley, Ford group vice president and Pat Quinn, Governor of the State of Illinois.
If you can't be there, you can catch the launch on Facebook. Ford has created a Fan Page on Facebook for the 2011 Ford Explorer that includes images, contests, video and more. [Visit the official 2011 Ford Explorer Facebook Page]
Ford claims the completely reinvented SUV includes safety features such as the world's only inflatable seatbelts, technology that customers need and want and class-leading fuel economy--more than 30% better than the current vehicle. I guess you'll just have to be there to find out the rest of the story. . .
