Combining a 10-speed transmission with four-wheel-drive, the Explorer ST also offers a Sport mode which will tighten up the steering and throttle response while holding onto gears a little longer, making it, in chief functional engineer, Ed Krenz's words, "a hell of a lot of fun to drive".
The automaker calls the new Explorer ST a "genuine Ford Performance vehicle", and it replaces the outgoing Explorer's Sport trim.
Now playing: Watch this: 2020 Ford Explorer ST is a fast 400-horsepower people. In fact, it turned out to be the most powerful Explorer ever made, squeezing 400 horsepower and 415 lb. -ft. of torque from the 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine that otherwise develops only 365 horsepower. For the sake of highly unscientific comparisons, Land Rover says the Range Rover Sport runs from zero to 60 miles per hour in a claimed 6.8 seconds, a figure the Explorer ST should have no problem beating based on our previous experiences with the engine. Suspension is stiffened up, and the brakes are slightly upgraded. "There's no mistaking its ST DNA".
The information about the Hybrid builds on what was formally released last week-that the 2020 Explorer lineup returns to a platform that accommodates either rear-wheel drive or all-wheel drive, like the Explorer models that built that nameplate in the '90s and '00s.
Visually, Explorer ST stands apart from the rest of the lineup courtesy of a black mesh grille insert, liftgate applique, lower bodyside details, roof-rack side rails and skid plate elements. It has unique leather upholstery with ST logos stitched in the seatbacks and a heated flat-bottom steering wheel. A 12.3-inch digital gauge cluster is standard, as are a tow package with a Class III receiver and Ford's suite of active safety tech.
