Ford Explorer ST Performance SUV Scores with New Customer

There was a time when SUVs where big lumbering boxes that forced you to sacrifice performance for space. Those days are long over, thanks to a Ford performance SUV like the 2020 Ford Explorer ST. According to Ford, this sports SUV is the most powerful Ford Explorer ever and it is so popular it comprises 21% of Ford Explorer retail sales. At Southern California Ford Dealers, our experts thought we'd take a closer look at the 2020 Ford Explorer ST and discover why it's attracting so many trade-ins from luxury brand customers.
Top-Notch Performance
While the 2020 Ford Explorer ST offers three engine choices, we are going to focus on the extremely powerful 3.0L twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® V6. This dynamic and innovative engine delivers 400 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 415 lb.-ft. of torque at 3,500 rpm. It also features a 9.5:1 compression ratio, quad chrome exhaust tips, an engine block made from cast aluminum, and towing power of up to 5,600 pounds. When combined with the 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift® capability, drivers can expect a top speed of 143 mph. Since the 2020 Ford Explorer ST has been completely redesigned, the ride is better than ever before thanks to the unique sport-tuned independent front and rear suspension, available intelligent 4WD, and power four-wheel disc with anti-lock braking system. According to Craig Patterson, Ford SUV marketing manager, once drivers "… feel the power and refinement of our first-ever Explorer ST, performance bred from racetracks around the world, demand will only grow stronger.”
