So this is going to be a thing apparently.
2.7 Ecoboost with an 8 speed auto transmission. "Sport" suspension and a few badges to boot.
Replacing the Sport edition with a bit more hp, probably going to be above $40k?
I like the Explorer sport my parents bought. The Fusion sport was also nice for what it is. I haven't had the chance or desire to test the current Edge sport. I feel it's a big departure from what the ST line was, especially given the price tag of the current Edge sport. I'm also not really sure who it's targeting or why they changed it away from the old sport name. I think most people who are shopping those cars recognize the "sport" as the one with the bigger engine. The ST name, in comparison, is only really known to enthusiasts.
I guess we will see if it actually lives up to expectations, or if this is just the start of whoring out the ST badge instead of using the sport name. I surely hope it's not the latter.
