2013 Ford Explorer Sport secures EPA-rated 22 mpg highway

The 2013 Ford Explorer Sport has received its EPA-certified fuel-economy rating and has scored 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway.

“Explorer Sport hits a sweet-spot combination of power, usable torque, 4WD capability, with class-leading fuel efficiency,” said Bill Gubing, chief engineer for Explorer, Taurus and Police Interceptor vehicles. “The Explorer Sport EcoBoost engine matches Taurus SHO for output and the Terrain Management System has been specifically calibrated to optimize increased power – regardless of the road or conditions.”
