2013 Ford Explorer Sport

Ford will release a performance version of the Explorer later this year. The Explorer Sport will have a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 engine making 350 hp. This engine will be paired with a paddle-shifted 6-speed Select-Shift Automatic transmission. The Sport will come standard with 4-wheel drive featuring a Terrain Management System.

Explorer chief engineer, Bill Gubins stated "Adding an EcoBoost drivetrain to the Explorer Sport delivers even more fuel efficiency and performance to the line up." "This is our highest-performance, most capable Ford Explorer ever."

The chassis has been reworked to make the Explorer Sport stiffer and to improve its handling. The fuel economy of the Explorer Sport is rated at up to 16 mpg city and 22 highway.

The Explorer Sport will have tons of standard and optional technologies. Some standard and optional technologies include:
*Dual Zone Temperature Control
*SYNC with MyFord Touch
*10-way power driver's seat with power recline and lumbar
*Rear view camera

I have to say that I like how Ford is putting the name of the model on the hood of the vehicle!
