Towing and Trailer Sway Control19

Building on standard AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control , standard trailer sway control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to maintain trailer control.19  The result is stability and control, even when towing large loads. When properly equipped, the Explorer can tow up to 5,600 lbs. The Class III Trailer Tow Package is available with the 2.3L EcoBoost® and 3.3L hybrid engines, and comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost engine.

Sidewind Stabilization

Sidewind stabilization can help counteract heavy wind conditions, helping stabilize the vehicle in situations where you are likely to encounter heavy gusts of wind. This standard system keeps you from having to fight the wind and put in extra effort when overtaking large trucks, crossing a bridge or simply driving on the open road.

Available 3.0L EcoBoost® Engine

As the backbone of the ST and Platinum powertrains, the available 3.0L EcoBoost® engine takes the athletic feel of the Explorer a step further. By using turbocharging and direct injection, the Platinum powertrain generates a projected 365 horsepower11  plus 380 lb.-ft. of torque.11  The ST, however, combines this muscular engine with twin turbos for a powertrain like nothing before it. With 400 hp11  plus 415 lb.-ft. of torque11  the 2020 ST is the most powerful Explorer ever.
