Ford didn't list total torque, but said the electric motor produces 200 pound-feet of torque. All-wheel drive will be optional on the Explorer hybrid.

The automaker calls the new Explorer ST a "genuine Ford Performance vehicle", and it replaces the outgoing Explorer's Sport trim. However, one of the pictures released by Ford shows the Hybrid towing a boat/trailer, so we can assume a generous tow rating. The company says the car's liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery pack lives in a specially designed space beneath the second-row seats, and doesn't reduce interior comfort or cargo-carrying ability. The hybrid can tow up to 5,000 pounds.

The Explorer ST is Ford's second high performance SUV, following the Edge ST, and features a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6 that's good for 400 hp and a top speed of 143 miles per hour. When engaged via the Selectable Drive Mode dial in the center console, the steering system tightens for sportier reaction, the gas pedal responds more aggressively, gears hold longer and shift quicker, and an enhanced engine note plays through the cabin. Underneath, the Explorer ST is fitted with tauter suspension than the standard model.

Hybrid Limited models will get Active Noise Cancellation, as well as 10-way-adjustable power front seats, leather upholstery, second-row heated seats, a wireless phone charging pad, and 14-speaker B&O sound, plus a suite of Ford Co-Pilot360 Assist+ safety and assistance technologies.

A black mesh grille and other black-painted exterior details give the ST a meaner look than its chrome-heavy siblings.

The Explorer ST appears to be a more comprehensive, performance-oriented package than the outgoing Sport model thanks in part to two available packages. Ford said that it is targeting a 143-mph top speed for the Explorer ST.
