"With more than 300,000 units produced last year, the Explorer was the top selling SUV in the United States," said Michael J. Burns, Dana chairman and CEO. "We are excited to play an important role in the redesign of this vehicle by providing new, innovative engine and drivetrain products."

The new Explorer's front axle has been redesigned for increased fuel efficiency, and the axle assembly incorporates a new best-in-class sealing system for improved durability.

In addition, the 4.0L version of the Explorer engine features a Dana thermoset cylinder-head-cover module.

The 4.6L version of the engine includes a Dana oil pan gasket, front cover gaskets, exhaust gaskets, cylinder-head gaskets, and valve stem seals.

Additionally, Dana provides all of the vehicle's front driveshafts, as well as the rear driveshafts for the V-8 and 4x2 Explorer models.
