Is the world ready for a $60,000 Ford Explorer? Maybe, if it’s the Ford Explorer ST.
Let’s examine the 400-horsepower Ford SUV and see what it’s all about. This could be another case of ST-itis like we experienced with the Edge ST, or it might be the baby Range Rover Sport you seek. Click play and find out…
The price is certainly bananas. Here’s the weird thing though, I expected to see one or two of these on the road per month. But I see multiple examples per week. That means the price to entry here is not too high for some. Also, I imagine there’s plenty of cash on the hood to be had right now.
And at the end of the day, this is a good truck. The 400-horsepower twin-turbocharged V6 is a wonderful engine and it’s paired with a well-designed chassis. Do I wish this truck was $10,000 less expensive? Yes, absolutely. Do I think it’s a pretty sweet machine regardless? Yes I do.
