2019 Ford Explorer Still On The Table?

By  | 

With Ford now offering the Ford Ranger Raptor in some market, some people are speculating that we might see more Raptor models coming from Ford in the near future and that the Ford Explorer could be one of the models getting it.

Ford has been making it clear that they are interested in offering more Performance model. If the rumors are true, we could be seeing the Ford Explorer get the 3.5-liter twin-turbo EcoBoost V6 engine that could push the Explorer close to the 500hp mark.

If Raptor is not it, we could also see the Explorer come with an RS badge. Of course, these are all just speculations right now but if this does end up to be true, the vehicle would be coming in to compete models like the Alfa Romeo Stelvio QV, Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT, Audi SQ5 and more.

Would you like to see this happen?
