More powerful versions of the Ford Explorer are also available. The 400 horsepower of the ST version, for example, allows you to move the SUV with surprising enthusiasm in a vehicle of this size. The 3.0- litre twin-turbo V6 engine is impressive, and since the gearbox has also been adapted for these specifications.
Ford can now boast an SUV with a lively and dynamic response. It should be noted that the same engine also equips the Platinum version but is configured differently for 365 horsepower.
Having said that, the basic versions are not to be outdone. Their engine, a 300-hp, 2.3-litre turbocharged 4-cylinder with 300 horsepower, is more than enough to get the job done, making the Explorer one of the most fuel-efficient in its class.
However, the real find is the hybrid version, which has joined the Explorer lineup for 2021. It combines a 3.3-litre V-6 engine with an electric motor for a combined output of 318 horsepower.
