The Ford Explorer is now more advanced and appealing than ever. The sporty SUV is offering an upgrade in the form of the exciting new ST-Line trim. Taking inspiration from the Explorer ST trim but without the performance enhancements, the 2022 Ford Explorer ST-Line gives customers the chance to add athletic stylings and advanced tech to their Explorer.
“The ST brand has been very well received by Explorer customers since it arrived two years ago,” said Lee Newcombe, Ford Explorer marketing manager. “With the addition of Explorer ST-Line, Explorer will offer the broadest performance-inspired lineup in the segment.”
Sitting between the XLT and Limited trims, the Explorer ST-Line is equipped with 20-inch machined aluminum wheels, gloss-black “EXPLORER” hood badging, a unique black-out treatment for the headlamps and taillamps, a blacked-out grille, and blacked-out dual exhaust tips.
Those design elements extend to the cabin with Ebony Black ActiveX™-trimmed seats with Miko inserts. Additional ST-Line interior features include a heated sport-style steering wheel, heated front seats, and red stitching throughout the cabin. When it comes to tech, the Explorer ST-Line offers available premium features like a wireless charging pad, an auto-dimming rearview mirror, a 360-degree camera, and a 12-speaker B&O® sound system.
Other notable upgrades for the 2022 Explorer includes a new 400-horsepower powertrain for the King Ranch® and Platinum models, two new exterior colours (Stone Blue and Burgundy Velvet), a choice of second-row bench seat or captain’s chairs at no extra charge, and an advanced Technology Package for King Ranch® and Platinum models that includes a 10.1-inch touch screen and a 14-speaker B&O® sound system.
