The Explorer takes on the competition in the midsize SUV category with a forceful 290-horsepower V6 or a 280-horsepower, 2.3-litre four-cylinder turbo. However, it's the 365-horsepower, twin-turbo 3.5-litre V6 that helps the Explorer Sport surpass its rivals in terms of output. A panoramic sunroof, roomy cabin and SYNC 3 infotainment interface make the Explorer a tough adversary for the competition.
