The second part has been priced recently enough to avoid increased savings on destination fees, and it costs $53,410 post-destination.
The Explorer trim line features an ST-Line for 2022, but this is also the first year for the Explorer Timberline and King Ranch. ST Series upgraded the design and chassis of the regular ST but still used the base four-cylinder engine (the regular ST can now also be paired with rear-wheel drive). The Explorer King Ranch suitable for F-150 and Expeditions of the same name: special badges and interiors color applied to a highest trim level in the range. In this case, it’s on par with the Platinum, including the standard turbocharged V6 tuned to make the same 400hp found on the Explorer ST. Finally, yes New Timberline gives the Explorer some of the off-roading it lacks by increasing ride height and ground clearance, while adding Torsen limited slip differentials, re-calibrated suspension, off-road tires, protection. underbody and powerful shock absorbers from Explorer Police Interceptors (though reworked). It also has a specially developed exterior and interior design.
