2020 Ford Explorer ST Review | The Mustang Of CUVs

Ford has dabbled with performance crossovers before, but the last Explorer Sport wasn’t as sporty as most of us had hoped. Thankfully the Explorer ST for 2020 is an entirely different animal. The big change isn’t the twin-turbo engine, not is it really the power level which comes in at a healthy 400. It’s the transmission that’s key to the ST’s new found performance.
