The company introduced a hybrid and “charged” modification of the new generation Ford Explorer suv coupe. The premiere took place at the Detroit Auto Show.
“Charged” Ford Explorer ST is equipped with all-wheel drive and the same six-cylinder twin-turbo engine of three liters, as the new Lincoln Continental. The unit produces 406 horsepower and 563 Nm of torque. The engine is paired with a ten-speed automatic transmission. Acceleration time to 100 km/h is not specified yet. Only the maximum speed is known – 230 kilometers per hour.
The novelty is available with two packages of options – ST Street Pack and ST Track Pack. Both include 21-inch aluminum alloy wheels and red-painted calipers. Depending on the set, the brakes themselves and their power will differ.

When it is turned on, the reaction to pressing the gas pedal will become sharper, the steering and gearbox settings will change, and the sound of the engine, thanks to the sound symposucer, will become more aggressive.
The hybrid version was previously demonstrated on the police Explorer. The composition of the 323-hp power plant of such a machine includes a 3.3-liter V6 engine, an electric motor and a 10-speed automatic transmission.
