Ford Explorer ST Borla Exhaust Systems Debut: Video

Borla has been making exhaust systems for Ford cars and trucks for a very long time. The systems are commonly used on Mustangs and the F-150. Owners of the Ford Explorer ST can now get two different exhaust systems from Borla that promise improved sound and performance for the SUV.

Both systems will fit the 2020 Ford Explorer ST with the 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost engine. The systems will also fit the Explorer Platinum that has the same engine under the hood. The Ford Explorer ST Borla exhaust system is offered in the quieter S-Type system and the louder ATAK system.

Ford Explorer ST Borla exhaust systems are made from T-304 stainless steel for durability and long life. The manufacturer promises that both systems have a drone-free driving experience. Many aftermarket exhaust systems have a loud and annoying tone known as drone at certain RPMs that can make driving unpleasant.

Both the Ford Explorer ST Borla systems offer quad four-inch dual round rolled angle-cut tips and are available in multiple colors. Colors include chrome, black chrome, and carbon fiber. Borla says that it will have exhaust systems for the 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine that comes standard in the 2020 Explorer XLT and Limited at a future time. Those systems will be offered only in the quieter S-Type sound level. All Borla exhaust systems come with a million-mile warranty.

The ATAK exhaust system for the Explorer ST with chrome tips sells for $1390.99. Opting for the carbon fiber tips up the price significantly to $1912.99. The S-Type system starts at $1381.99 for basic chrome tips. The buyer can install many of the systems in the driveway with a few hand tools.

    It’s a decent start, Ford Performance needs to add alot more to this vehicle and they need to have done it yesterday. fully tuned lowered suspension for the Magnetic ride system, Brembo brakes, Cold air intake, intercooler upgrades, intercooler piping, blow off valve, Pro-Cal tuner, Ford Performance wheels and a whole lot more.
