Ford Performance has developed a one-of-a-kind Explorer ST for the track. The crossover will be shown live this weekend and will serve the Ford Sport Driving School.
Upgrades include a roll cage, four Recaro bucket seats with four-point belts, six-piston aluminum Brembo front calipers attached to 420mm Mustang Shelby GT500 rotors, SV503 Track wheels with Michelin 315 / 30ZR21 Pilot Sport Cup 2 tires and graphic stickers from Lue Creative.
Obviously, the suspension has also undergone refinement, as a result of which the body sank heavily to the ground. Ford Performance has yet to reveal the specs of the twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6, but it does 405bhp in the factory version. and 563 Nm.
For reference: Ford Performance Racing School was opened in 2006. The company offers various sports driving training programs. Plus, there are free workshops and track days for those buying Mustangs, Focus ST, Fiesta ST, GT500, Mach 1 and even F-150 Raptor with Explorer ST.
Ford recently introduced the world’s most walkable Explorer, the Timberline. The crossover was re-tuned the steering, installed new anti-roll bars, springs and shock absorbers and supplemented the all-wheel drive system with a rear Torsen limited-slip differential. The engine remained standard – a 2.3-liter “turbo four” produces 305 hp
