2012 Ford Explorer XLT Ecoboost: I want the 2013 Explorer Sport

March 28, 2012

There are two big complaints about our 2012 Ford Explorer EcoBoost that don't involve MyFord Touch: 1) It's kind of sluggish. 2) No way to get AWD and a turbo.

With "at least" 350 horsepower from a 3.5-liter EcoBoost V6, AWD and some unique tweaks (including an upgraded MyFord Touch), the 2013 Explorer Sport fixes both of those issues.
