Invest in the extraordinary! The Explorer Sport isn’t your average mid-size crossover. Sure, it’s accommodating to families thanks to its generous dimensions, but it goes above and beyond to provide the driver with a fun, thrilling experience. Below, let’s visit all the specifications that make the 2016 model well worth your attention.
When you start up the 2016 Ford Explorer Sport, you’re going to hear the engine actually roar—we’re not just using that as a figure of speech. The 3.5L V6 motor is one tough customer, producing a wild 365 horses at 5,500 revolutions per minute (RPM) and 350-lb.-ft. of torque at 3,500 RPM. That equates to serious speed—in fact, you’ll enjoy a delightful zero to 60 MPH time of 6.4 seconds. Needless to say, if you have a destination in mind, it won’t take you long before you’re there!
This ride is, of course, also tuned for performance in other ways. Efficiency is here in spades, with the EPA estimating you’ll benefit from an average highway MPG of 22. This means you’re getting speed and fuel economy, and you’ll experience yearly gas cost savings over cars with similarly specced engines. Additionally, the six-speed automatic transmission can be controlled via paddle shifters mounted to the wheel, providing a sportier experience.
