Ford pulled the covers off the 2020 Ford Explorer ST and Ford Explorer Hybrid today at the 2019 North American International Auto Show in Detroit. The Explorer ST from Ford Performance is the most powerful Explorer ever made, with a specially tuned 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine expected to make at least 400 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft. of torque with a top speed of 143 mph. The All-new Explorer Hybrid is designed to offer performance and capability in a fuel efficient 3.3-liter hybrid powertrain, projected to return an EPA range of over 500 miles on the rear-wheel drive models. 

The Explorer ST has a 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine, mated to Ford’s 10-speed automatic transmission. Power is delivered to the wheels via standard four-wheel drive. All models feature 21-inch aluminum wheels, with varying levels of performance brakes, red brake calipers, and larger brake pads. An available ST Street Pack and ST Track Pack will offer increased performance capabilities. 

The Explorer Hybrid features a 3.3-liter hybrid powertrain that is expected a combined 318 horsepower. An all-new 10-speed modular hybrid transmission provides power to the rear wheels, or via available all-wheel drive.
