DEARBORN, Mich., March 28, 2012 - The first-ever performance version of the Ford Explorer arrives this year with the highest projected fuel economy among gasoline-engine-powered, highperformance SUVs.

With a twin-turbocharged EcoBoost(R) V6 engine making at least 350 horsepower and four-wheel drive with a Terrain Management System(TM), Explorer Sport delivers enhanced on-road dynamics with sporty design cues inside and out.

"Adding an EcoBoost drivetrain to Explorer Sport delivers even more fuel efficiency and performance to the lineup," said Bill Gubing, Explorer chief engineer. "This is our highestperformance, most capable Ford Explorer ever."
