As a new addition for the 2013 model year, the Ford Explorer Sport will combine fuel efficiency and high performance in a sporty design.
The 2013 Ford Explorer Sport will be equipped with Ford’s EcoBoost 3.5-liter V6 engine, a revolutionary engine design that generates 355-horsepower at 5,700 rpms. The EcoBoost engine delivers power normally found in a V8 engine, but has the fuel efficiency of a V6 with is unique twin-turbocharged, direct-injection strategy. Also equipped on the 2013 Ford Explorer Sport is the terrain management system that integrates powertrain and braking control to provide appropriate traction for various driving and climate conditions. The terrain management system is activated by a control knob that enables 4WD control through a choice of different settings.
The exterior of the 2013 Explorer Sport boasts many unique features, including 20-inch painted wheels, black roof rack rails, and blacked-out headlamp and taillamp treatments. The interior is just as alluring. It features leather trimmed seating, unique Sport-logo floor mats, and illuminated scuff plates. Aside from looks alone, the interior continues to feel high-end with the inclusion of 10-way power driver’s seat, rear view camera, SYNC with MyFord touch driver technology, and a Sony Premium Audio System.
