Stylish. Sophisticated. Powerful. That’s the 2017 Explorer Sport for you in a nutshell. It’s a fantastic creation from the braintrust at the Big Blue Oval, and fortunately, one just arrived on our Sound Ford Seattle lot. This is your chance to discover what all the fuss is about!
Upon approaching the SUV, you’re immediately presented with the visual distinction the Sport enjoys over other models. Twenty-inch machined aluminum wheels dazzle. The grille is in a high-gloss black, while an “EXPLORER” badge unique to this variant is emblazoned on the hood. Around the back, signature LED tail lights are given a smoked-out treatment. And on the top, the roof rack rails are also in that dark, delightful high gloss.
Sure, the Explorer Sport looks cool, but how does it perform? In a word: wonderfully. The 3.5L turbocharged V6 engine is stellar, offering 365 horses at 5,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 350 lb.-ft. torque at 3,500 RPM. And with the four-wheel drive, you’ll be equipped to tackle even the toughest trails.
