2016 Ford Explorer RS: Can It Beat The Hellcat Cherokee?

By  | 

Since there was a confirmation earlier this year about the RS range for Ford in getting an increase, which model would you think could benefit from it? Word on the street is it would be the Ford Explorer. Over the years the Explorer design language has been getting more sportier than utility. But when it comes to actual performance it is still more of an SUV than anything else.

With the recent rise in popularity of SUVs that perform like sports cars, it wouldn’t be crazy to imagine a Ford Explorer RS. We saw the likes of the Bentley Benteyga, Porsche Macan, Jaguar F-Pace and even Tesla Model X push the limits of what SUVs can do. And if that wasn’t close enough to rival with Ford, then the recent Jeep Grand Cherokee Hellcat certainly is.

What do you think of a 2016 Ford Explorer RS? And what about killing off the Cherokee Hellcat while they’re at it? Sound off in the comments section below.
