Ford created an entirely new class when it created the Explorer Sport, which goes on sale next month. It is the only seven-seater, high-performance SUV to have an official EPA rating of 22 MPG on the highway. The high fuel-efficiency is thanks to Ford’s new EcoBoost engine, which provides 365 horsepower while maintaining the highest MPG around.
“Explorer Sport hits a sweet-spot combination of power, usable torque, 4WD capability, with class-leading fuel efficiency,” Bill Gubing, chief engineer for Explorer, Taurus and Police Interceptor vehicles, told media. “The Explorer Sport EcoBoost engine matches Taurus SHO for output and the Terrain Management System has been specifically calibrated to optimize increased power – regardless of the road or conditions.”
The Explorer Sport also has the SelectShift Automatic transmission, chassis tunnel reinforcements and an electric power-assisted steering rack. The new Explorer Sport has special Terrain Management System settings which help to increase power and torque on all terrain.
