Ford Explorer Sport

American carmaker Ford revealed their new model, the Explorer Sport. Under the hood it hides a turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6 engine capable of developing 350 horsepower. The model also features a lot of other exterior styling elements and interior ones as well. It is capable of a 16 mpg fuel economy in the city and 22 mpg fuel consumption on the highway. All the power is being sent to the wheels through a 6-speed SelectShift Automatic gearbox. Because the car is a lot stiffer than the standard version, the SUV is easier to drive and it can take corners at higher speeds. The carmaker equipped the model with electric power-assisted steering and of course, larger brakes than the standard Explorer. Ford will put it on sale this summer, but the bad news is that it didn?t reveal its price yet.
