Ford Philippines Unveils New Look, Tech for Explorer Sport


The new Ford Explorer Sport arrives in the Philippines with more smart technologies powered by the ground-breaking EcoBoost engine technology. The new Explorer Sport delivers an ideal combination of form and function that has redefined yet again how the industry will think about the sport utility vehicle (SUV) segment.

Innovative, high-performance and fun-to-drive, the new Explorer Sport is the latest member to join Ford Philippines’ vast SUV lineup; currently the largest offering in the market today.

“The new Explorer Sport continues to lead the way in innovation, power and performance in a smart vehicle that you would want in an SUV,” said Kay Hart, managing director, Ford Philippines.



The new Explorer Sport has been updated inside and out to offer a more comfortable driving experience that complements its new rugged look.

Customers can enjoy the tuned suspension and will benefit from its unique steering gear, front and rear springs, struts and rear dampers for a more dynamic driving experience, all while sitting high on 20-inch Machined Aluminum Wheels with Painted Pockets offering an improved ride and handling.

Interior changes include new door seals, an enhanced sound package with engine sub-frame mounts specially tuned to reduce vibration.

The new Explorer Sport’s aggressive yet sophisticated hood badge grabs attention. The design of the high gloss black grille speaks of confidence in every movement.


Outside, the new Explorer Sport exudes ruggedness with its robust design. The heightened grille and LED headlamps paired with a new closed-off lower roof rack and a new rear spoiler help to improve aerodynamics.

The new Explorer Sport is equipped with even more smart technologies designed to further enhance both the driver and passengers’ ride experience, such as a front 180-degree camera with washer, front part assist, smart-charging USB ports, and a hands-free liftgate.

The new Explorer Sport is powered by a 3.5-liter twin-turbocharged EcoBoost V6 delivering 370 horsepower at 5,500 rpm and 475 Nm of torque at 3,500 rpm. The new Explorer Sport is also mated with 6-Speed SelectShift Automatic for a smoother driving experience.



The new 3.5-liter Explorer Sport will be available in all Ford dealerships nationwide this month, at a price of PhP 2,819,000. It comes in three elegant colors: Tuxedo Black, White Platinum, and Magnetic Metallic.

    1. I'm sure we'll get more variants soon. My hunch is that the 3.5 V6 bids goodbye for the 2.3 EcoBoost. We'll see.

    1. Current none yet. However, don't be surprised if we see the 2.0 XLT and 2.3 Platinum join the line-up some time early next year.

    2. I've seen the Canadian and Middle East brochures for the facelifted Ford Explorer and based on what has been stated:
      -Platinum variant comes exclusive in 3.5 V6 Ecoboost engine only
      -No more 2.0 engine for the facelifted range
      -Only available engine options are 2.3 Ecoboost, 3.5 N/A V6 and 3.5 V6 Ecoboost

    3. Platinum variant by next year? Seriously? oh well what do we expect we are in a 3rd world country. Other country's old technology will be brand new for us. How sad.... :(
