Two turbocharged engine options have been announced: a 3.0-liter V6 “projected to produce” as much as 365 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, and a familiar 2.3-liter four with a claimed output estimate of 300 hp and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. The bigger engine is supposed to be able to pull 5,600 pounds behind the new Explorer, and even the 2.3-liter is going to come with a total capacity rating of 5,300 when you pick the right options. Both come with a 10-speed automatic transmission and rear or optional four-wheel drive.

Have a feeling the 365 is the 3.0L in the Platinum trim and ST will be the 3.0L at 400 HP....

Traverse 310

Explorer 365

Pretty much best in class outside of Fiat's V8 beasts. (I think those numbers are all correct)

Ford went too conservative with the styling. The side profile looks way too much like the current gen. From a styling standpoint it looks like a refresh and not an entirely new model.

Yeah, it's a new platform that can be FWD, RWD, or AWD/4WD. I don't know how such witchcraft is possible, but they're doing it

I've never been a fan of those screens that just sort of look plopped on as an afterthought...but it seems like a ton of manufacturers are doing it, so there has to be some reason why they keep doing it

There hasn't been a ton of support yet since its only been in Lincoln's, but there have been guys with MKZ's and Conti's tuning and running strong.

I love the tablet screen. Will probably end up getting the wife an ST for her next car.

I absolutely hate the new “ipad docking station” design new cars are using for the infotainment screens.

That being said I love new Explorer. Styling has always been good but they now switch to a RWD based platform and add an ST model. I think I’d pick the ST over an SRT Durango just based on gas mileage.

The big tuners do have tunes out for the 3.0T. The MKZ should run low 13's, high 12's out of the box, and I'd think low 12's with a tune.

Here's Livernois numbers for a 2017 MKZ 3.0T
Livernois Base: 334WHP/392WTQ

Stage 1 Tune: 387WHP/418WTQ
