    Review: 2013 Ford Explorer Sport
    1378396800

    As one of the most recognized, long-standing names in the SUV market, the Ford Explorer has always been considered an instrumental leader in popularizing the early years of sport utility vehicles. Originally launched back in 1990, the Ford Explorer sure has come along way since its boxy truck-like shape, yet continues its tradition as a strong-selling ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Ford Explorer Sport
    1365102000

    When one speaks of sporty and fun-to-drive utility vehicles, few would put the Ford Explorer in the same category as the Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8, BMW X5 or Porsche Cayenne. Yet, with just a few reservations, I'd toss the new-for-2013 Ford Explorer Sport close to that arena for consideration. As a recap, the sportiest of Explorers is fitted with Ford's ...

    Official: Ford sales in China up 21% in 2012, 43% in Dec. alone
    1357910880

    Ford went into the Beijing Motor Show last year talking big about its "15 by 15" plan for China – introducing 15 new models to the market by 2015, doubling production capacity and its dealership network. Its stand at the show showcased four new vehicles – the EcoSport, Kuga, Edge and Explorer CUVs – along with the launch of the 1.0-litre ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Ford Explorer Sport
    1349290680

    Ford has had nothing but great success with its latest, three-row iteration of the Explorer SUV, with buyers finding it a suitably good driving tool for the jobs demanded by family living. And while I've never found the naturally aspirated 3.5-litre V6 that inhabits the engine bay to be anything less than well-suited to this large SUV/CUV class – it ...

    Quick Spin: 2013 Ford Explorer Limited AWD
    1347303480

    Editor's Note: This is our new Quick Spin format, now shorter, less formal and more personal than our regular reviews. We've reinvented the format so we can talk about even more of the new vehicles we drive. Enjoy! The popularity of crossovers and SUVs as daily transportation often eludes me, but it's tough to argue with their functionality if you've got ...

    Official: 2013 Ford Explorer Sport officially rated at 365 HP
    1345842900

    The 2013 Ford Explorer Sport goes on sale this fall, packing a 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6, premium interior features and sporty (sort of) exterior design elements. And while Ford originally told us that the Sport would produce "at least 350 horsepower," we've now learned that the top-trim Explorer will churn out 365 hp and 360 pound-feet of torque. If that ...

    Confirmed: California Highway Patrol picks Ford Explorer Police Interceptor
    1338319800

    How many cops does it take to choose a new police car? In California, the answer is four. But this is also a trick question, because the California Highway Patrol didn't choose a car to replace its aging Ford Crown Victoria Police Interceptors – it chose an SUV. That's right, Cali 5-0 will be rolling in the Ford Explorer starting this ...

    New York: 2013 Ford Explorer Sport mugs for the camera in NYC
    1333751700

    No one may have asked Ford to drop the twin-turbocharged 3.5-litre EcoBoost V6 found in the Taurus SHO behind the headlights of the Explorer, but that doesn't mean we're complaining. Ford has just debuted the higher-performance crossover at the 2012 New York Auto Show, complete with its full 350 horsepower. Ford says the newly menacing softroader will be ...

    Official: 2013 Ford Explorer Sport brings SHO-like performance to big CUV [UPDATE w/video]
    1332961200

    The last time we remember talking about a high-performance Ford Explorer was 2007 when a rare Saleen Explorer XP8 popped up on eBay Motors. For the 2013 model year, however, Ford will start producing high performance Explorers right at the factory. Dubbed the Explorer Sport, this new addition to the Explorer lineup sports the same twin-turbo 3.5-litre ...

    1332865680

    The redesigned Ford Explorer is already selling quite well, and it looks like the three-row crossover is about to add another variant to boost the bottom line a little more. Ford posted on its Facebook page a 26-second video that teases what looks to be a high-performance version of the Explorer. The video show only a mesh grille, a beefy exhaust and ...
