Fastest 2016 SUVs

2 of 11

2016 Ford Explorer Sport

Using a 3.5-liter twin-turbo V6 that produces 365 horsepower and 350 pound-feet of torque, the 2016 Ford Explorer Sport is capable of going from zero to 60 in 5.9 seconds. This massive turbo-charged engine is routed to an all-wheel drive system through a six-speed automatic transmission. It is easily the fastest Ford SUV ever.

What’s more, it accomplishes all this despite carrying around a third row.

The Ford Explorer sits at No. 15 out of 18 in our midsize SUVs rankings. Critics docked it for an unwieldy infotainment system, poor visibility, a cramped second row, and low predicted reliability score.
