2020 Ford Explorer ST Specs

Ford Explorer

The ST is a high-performance version of the Explorer and the most powerful model in the range. To help it handle better and improve traction, its suspension has been reworked to be stiffer and all-wheel-drive is added as standard. It also gains a 12.3-inch driver info display, sportier bucket seats, active park assist, reverse brake assist, and the Class III towing package as standard, allowing it to tow up to 5,600 lbs. Gloss black accents on the mirrors, grille, and rear end help set it apart.
