Ford made the dreams of performance lovers come true when they unveiled the all-new Ford Explorer ST – the first Explorer SUV designed and engineered by the world-famous Ford Performance Team. But as fun to drive and dynamic as the Ford Explorer ST is – and it really is very, very fun to drive – it does make you pay for its Ford Performance-tuned powertrain and its sporty and luxurious features. Sure, it’s not carrying the price tag of one of those luxury SUVs, but it’s more expensive than a base Explorer model.
So, what happens when someone wants to enjoy a Ford Performance Team SUV but doesn’t have that kind of money? Before now, there really wasn’t much they could do. But now? Well, now they can get behind the wheel of the all-new 2021 Ford Explorer Enthusiast ST SUV right here at Brandon Ford in Tampa, FL – and by doing so, they can enjoy the dynamic power of the Explorer ST without having to endure its price tag.
Is the All-New 2021 Ford Explorer Enthusiast ST at Brandon Ford in Tampa FL Really as Powerful and Dynamically Fun to Drive as the Explorer ST SUV?
There is a short and sweet answer to this question that’s very exciting – and that answer is YES!
That’s right, the all-new 2021 Ford Explorer Enthusiast ST is just as powerful as the 2021 Ford Explorer ST. And that’s because both new Ford SUVs share the same Ford Performance Team-tuned powertrain featuring a EcoBoost 3.0-liter engine that pumps out a horsepower rating of 400 and a torque rating of 415 pound-feet, and a SelectShift 10-speed automatic transmission.
The 2021 Explorer Enthusiast ST is able to achieve its cheaper price point thanks to its Standard Equipment Group designation within the ST group. But don’t worry, it still boasts an impressive set of standard features – such as premium leather seats, a 12.3-inch digital infotainment system, the Ford Co-Pilot360 suite of safety and driver assistance features, and the Class III Trailer Tow Package complete with the ability to tow up to 5,600 pounds.
