You may not have asked for it, but it’s here and we’re glad it exists: the 2020 Ford Explorer ST. This new model is the most powerful Ford SUV ever created, thanks to the minds over at Ford Performance. Powering the Explorer ST is a 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine that is set to produce 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque. Ford notes that they believe they can get the Explorer ST’s top speed all the way up to 143 mph.
Mated to the EcoBoost engine is a 10-speed automatic transmission that delivers power to the four-wheel drive system.
“We designed it to be an ST from the beginning,” said Ed Krenz, Ford Performance chief functional engineer. “There’s no mistaking its ST DNA. It has a performance feel with sustained performance capability and wears an unmistakably ST appearance. More than anything, it’s just a hell of a lot of fun to drive.”
Those who order an Explorer ST will have two available upgrades: ST Street Pack and ST Track Pack. Both come with 21-inch aluminum wheels, but they offer different performance brakes solutions.
Pricing and delivery dates on the 2020 Ford Explorer ST have not been revealed just yet.
