Ford Explorer ST
The Ford Performance team is responsible for the most exciting vehicles in the automaker’s lineup; the team’s influence now extends to the company’s SUV offerings. Following the introduction of the Edge ST last year, Ford plans to offer the all-new Explorer in a high-performance ST trim as well. “We designed it [Explorer] 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.” The new ST has a sporty interior including a standard 12.3-inch digital instrument cluster, a flat-bottomed steering wheel and leather bucket seats with silver accent stitching.
