Building on the advantages experienced in the other trims of this model, this variant chews up both the twisting trails and smooth streets of Seattle with a monstrous 3.5L V6 capable of 365-horsepower and 350-lb-ft of torque. This burly beast of an SUV still manages a respectable 22 miles per gallon (MPG) highway, too, despite all the grunt and ferocity inherent to its engine.
Off-road endeavors are further enhanced thanks to the standard four-wheel drive configuration of this Explorer. The seven-passenger vehicle eschews any front-wheel drive option in favor of uncompromising ruggedness and agility—something that’s sure to thrill the more adventurous among us.
Finally, the Sport oozes style thanks to the fantastic inclusion of 20-inch machined aluminum wheels. It’s a package-completing bit of flair that lends a premium feel over the smaller, painted tire rims available on many competitors.
