The Explorer ST will be Ford's second performance SUV following the recent introduction of the 2019 Edge ST. 2019 will bring all-new versions of the Escape and Explorer, and Ford will also launch two all-new off-road models by 2020: the much-anticipated new Bronco, and an off-road small utility vehicle.
75% of Ford's lineup will be replaced in the hybrid push and the automaker will add four new trucks and SUVs. Ford has plans for eight SUVs out that year with five offering hybrid powertrains and one coming battery-electric. Among them, a single-structure architecture with front-wheel drive, another with rear-wheel drive, and one devoted to commercial vans. The company says that these new hybrids will be cheaper and more efficient than its current hybrids, via "common cell and component design and by manufacturing motors, transmissions, and battery packs".
Ford unveiled its new-product strategy.
On the fuel efficiency front, the Blue Oval automaker invested $11 billion to develop an electric vehicle architecture, which can better accommodate battery packs and fuel-efficient components than the old-school way involving slapping bulky batteries in cars that weren't created to properly house them.
Those were the mid-size Fusion Hybrid sedan and the tall compact C-Max Hybrid wagon, along with an Energi plug-in hybrid version of each.

Jaysh al-Islam said the evacuations would take place in stages, but it did not say when they would begin. Eastern Ghouta, which is home to some 400,000 people, has been under regime siege ever since 2013.
"We are going to do this by making hybrids mainstream with our highest-volume, most-profitable vehicles", Farley said.
The previously unthinkable has just happened - Ford has confirmed it will build a hybrid Mustang but it says it will deliver V8-like performance with greater low-end torque.
Ford also teased this yet-to-be-named small off-road utility vehicle. Ford noted that its passenger vehicle sales surged in February 2018 however, with its market share climbing to 12.2%.
Ford's President for Global Markets, Jim Farley said, "Ford helped start the off-road phenomenon and has majored in off-road capability for decades - from the Bronco to the Raptor". Teaser photos show that it leans more to Range Rover off-road styling rather than the military lines of the Jeep Wrangler. The emergency braking system was created to keep you from hitting a pedestrian or another vehicle because you weren't paying attention to the road, or someone jumped off the sidewalk in front of your bumper. It includes automatic emergency braking with pedestrian detection, blind-spot indicators, lane keeping assist, auto high beams and a backup camera. In fact, the automaker said by 2020, vehicles that might not typically offers these systems, like the E-Series, F-650, F-750, and F59 chassis, will arrive with "available" active safety systems.
