    Ford Performance release Explorer ST.

    https://www.motor1.com/news/300808/2...l-information/



    Equipped with a 400-hp twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 engine, the Explorer ST is able to scoot itself to a top speed of 143 miles per hour, per Ford. As in the run-of-the-mill 2020 Explorer, the ST comes standard with a 10-speed automatic transmission. All-wheel-drive is also standard. Hopefully, Ford will offer a rear-wheel-drive Explorer ST in the future so we can live our dream of drifting this three-row crossover with our family in tow.

    While the extra grunt of the six-cylinder engine is enticing, consumers looking for greater lateral performance can check the option box for either the ST Street or ST Track packages. Both add 21-inch wheels, red brake calipers, and higher-performing brakes to the mix.

    Good question. I would imagine it will find more homes than the 2lt Endura we have

    I've said it elsewhere, Explorer design is brilliant nowadays compared to the dog early days.
    Now this, if only in V6 for this market would be a proper Kluger/Sante Fe/Sorrento ectetc challenger to the soccer mums and then have the ST for people wishing more, man 21" rims performance brakes, better than the SRT drinker as much as I love them. I'll take an ST.
    Listen FoA listen.

    Yep. That is the shiz.

    The Exploder is a really good looking car in the metal. That one doubly so. It's ticking that SUV, Sport Truck with performance box for me.

    If it wasn't priced off the planet, FoA's current sales prevention strategy, I'd be into that. Would prefer a V8 to V6, but I'd prefer a ford over a Jeep, so there would be a compromise somewhere.
    The problem with society today, is that nobody drinks from the skulls of their enemies anymore.

    I can imagine it will be at LEAST $80,000.00 or greater.
