Mazda and Ford go approach again in terms of the badge-engineering recreation, what with all these Mazda-constructed Ford Couriers, Mazda-based mostly Ford Escorts, Mazda-badged Ford Rangers, and so forth. Since I really like bizarre examples of badge engineering within the junkyard, I’m all the time looking out for the likes of a Saab-badged Chevy or Acura-badged Isuzu, and so I’ve been holding my eyes open for a uncommon Mazda-ized Ford Explorer for fairly some time. Most of them acquired crushed way back, because the early Explorer has little or no worth immediately (as a result of its laughably small size and lack of luxurious features, by twenty first-century American-market suburban commuter-truck requirements), however this ’ninety four simply confirmed up in a Denver self-service yard.

Through the first half of the Nineteen Nineties, People thought the primary-gen Explorer was the perfect alternative for stodgy sedans, wearisome wagons, and ho-hum hatchbacks. Mazda needed in on a few of these gross sales, and so the Navajo appeared for the 1991 mannequin yr and remained obtainable by way of 1994.
