19The 2013 Ford Explorer’spowertrain comes in three variations and the higher you go, the better it becomes. The base 3.5L V-6, with an output of 290hp, 255 lbs. of torque at a fuel rating of 18 mpg city/25 mpg highway, has poor acceleration. The 2.0L EcoBoost V-6 ,with an output of 240hp, 270 lbs. of torque and a fuel rating of 20 mpg city/28 mpg highway, shows improvement at the expense of some fuel. The turbocharged 3.5L V-6 with its output of 365hp, 360 lbs. of torque at a fuel rating of 16 mpg city/22 mpg highway is pretty quick, able to outrun more powerful SUVs.
