Ford Gives Explorer ST Goodies With Four-Cylinder Power for 2022

ST looks for XLT money

  • ST-Line gets big wheels, red-trimmed interior, smaller engine

  • Saves almost $10k from price of full ST model


Ford is launching an Explorer for buyers who want the looks of the top-shelf ST model but aren’t interested in the extra power and performance of the quickest version of the crossover. Instead of the 3.0L turbo-six, the 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line will get a 300 hp 2.3L EcoBoost along with AWD and a 10-speed automatic.

The new model will start from $51,059 in Canada, well under the $59,699 of the full ST. For their money, ST-Line Explorer buyers will get the entire exterior appearance of the full ST, including 20-inch machined-finish wheels along with a blacked-out grille, gloss black Explorer hood badges, dual exhaust tips, and the black treatment for the head and taillight trims.

Inside it has black ActiveX-trimmed seats with Miko inserts and a sport steering wheel as well as red accent stitching all around the cabin, much like the full ST. For equipment, it will come with heated front-row seats and the steering wheel will be heated. ST-Line will also have a 12-speaker B&O audio system, wireless charging, and 360-camera. The full line of Ford ADAS features are included like adaptive cruise and evasive steer assist.

It will be finished off with ST-Line sill plates and special floor mats.

Other changes to the 2022 Ford Explorer will include a second-row bench option on the Timberline off-road trim, new seating for XLT Sport Appearance, two new paint colours, and Ford is making the standard powertrain for Platinum the 400 hp V6.
