2020 Ford Explorer ST Adds Performance To Your Next Adventure
This week Ford Performance delivered on its promise of expanding the ST lineup by introducing us to the all-new Ford Explorer ST. This performance-minded SUV debut, which will be available as a 2020 model year vehicle, completes Ford‘s broadest-ever lineup of Explorer SUVs. It also gives us a total of three different variants to chose from of America’s favorite family hauler, as well as a great follow-up to the release of the 2019 Edge ST.
The Ford Explorer, Explorer Hybrid, and the Explorer ST models are giving SUV owners plenty of options to make your next adventure not only more enjoyable but also giving you the ability to get to these destinations faster and further than ever before.
“This new generation of Explorer recognizes that every family – and every driver – is unique,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford executive vice president, product development and purchasing. “With an all-new ST and an all-new hybrid, there truly is an Explorer for every adventure.”
But it was the Explorer ST that really caught our attention at this year’s NAIAS. Engineered by the Ford Performance team, Explorer ST will use a specially tuned 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine giving it the ability to achieve up to 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.
This will make the full-size vehicle the most potent Ford SUV ever. With an estimated top speed target for track drivers of 143 mph, it also makes it one of the fastest in the SUV lineup.
