Factory Built Twin-Turbo Ford Explorer

5 years ago

Well, this was a headline in car news that I had a double-take on! According to http://Autospotters.com, Ford recently announced they plan to drop their twin-turbo 350 horsepower EcoBoost V6 into the Explorer.

Here are some excerpts from the full Ford Explorer Sport press release:
"The first-ever performance version of the Ford Explorer arrives this year with the highest projected fuel economy among gasoline-engine-powered, high-performance SUVs.
With a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost® V6 engine making at least 350 horsepower and four-wheel drive with a Terrain Management System, Ford Explorer Sport delivers enhanced on-road dynamics with sporty design cues inside and out.
Adding an EcoBoost drivetrain to Ford Explorer Sport delivers even more fuel efficiency and performance to the lineup, said Bill Gubing, Explorer chief engineer. This is our highest-performance, most capable Ford Explorer ever.
I am surprised that Ford is going this direction since they have the Mustang as their speedy car. But I guess with the Jeep SRT8, this will be in a similar category of fast suv. Interesting concept!
