Beats The Competition
EcoBoost twin-turbo 3.5-liter produces 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque.
$50,000 Platinum version crushes most luxury brand SUV competitors.
Sport model offers solid performance on summer tires.
Our Take
Sync 3 is a breeze to use and offers crisp graphics.
In tech loaded models automatic safety and parking features greatly diminish the risks associated with wielding such a large vehicle.
It may not be Raptor-grade, but the 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost motor in the Explorer is a vengeful V6.
