Ford decided to expand the range of the Explorer SUV with the Sport edition, a high performance version of the American model.
Under the bonnet of the new Explorer Sport we will find a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 able to deliver somewhere around 350 horsepower.
The exact figures are not available yet as the car maker was quite selfish in this regard.
In terms of styling, Ford is providing a choice of four finishes including Ingot Silver Metallic, Ruby Red Metallic Clearcoat, White Platinum Metallic Tri-Coat and Tuxedo Black Metallic.
Other features include new 20-inch alloy wheels, revised front and rear optical blocks, a new front grille and roof rails.
“The first-ever performance version of the Ford Explorer arrives this year with the highest projected fuel economy among gasoline-engine-powered, high- performance SUVs,” says the car maker.
Entering the cabin you will find a new steering wheel, illuminated scuff plates, high quality materials such as Charcoal Black leather and Sienna inserts.
Ford announced a fuel economy of 16 mpg (city) and 22 mpg (highway) for the new Explorer Sport.
