Spy Shots—2020 Ford Explorer ST Nearly Bares All

Explorer

This is the Ford Explorer ST, caught testing in Colorado, and with barely any camo.

The Explorer will get its first comprehensive redesign in nearly a decade, likely for the ’20 model year. It will ride on a new platform that is flexible enough for front, rear or all-wheel-drive configurations. There is the definite possibility the Explorer could even go rear-wheel drive.

Just as the Edge gained an ST model for 2019, the Explorer will do the same with a 2.7L high-output EcoBoost V6, putting out at least as much power as the 335hp variant in the Edge—although a more powerful 3.5L EcoBoost may be likely. The Explorer ST will also add more aggressive styling and tuning, as seen in these images.

Expect to see the all-new Ford Explorer ST in the following months.
