2020 Ford Explorer | Sanderson Ford | Glendale, AZ
Totally redesigned for the new model year, the 2020 Ford Explorer boasts new trim levels, features, and a range of trim levels that fit the needs of every kind of driver. Whether you’re looking for a fuel-saving crossover or a sporty yet versatile SUV, the Explorer has something for you.

The 2020 Ford Explorer delivers seating for seven, ample cargo space, and convenient seating options that let you adjust the interior to exactly how you need it. Redesigned to be more stylish, quieter on the inside, and more powerful and capable than ever, the all-new Explorer makes the best-selling SUV of the past 20 years better than ever.

The 2020 Ford Explorer is available at five trim levels: XLT, Limited, Limited Hybrid, ST, and Platinum.

When it comes to powertrain, drivetrain, and other performance features, the 2020 Explorer offers a wide range of options. The base 2.3-liter EcoBoost® four-cylinder delivers exciting performance on its own, and an upgrade to the 3.0-liter EcoBoost® on the sporty Explorer ST trim kicks it up to a whopping 400 horsepower. There’s even a hybrid option with a 3.3-liter Hybrid Powertrain that is expected to deliver upwards of 500 miles of EPA-estimated driving range.*

Mounted to a 10-speed automatic transmission, all of the engines create a flexible, smooth ride. The redesign also resulted in better weight distribution and a return to rear-wheel drive, which together improve the balance and handling of the Explorer.

Alternatively, the 2020 Explorer can come with Intelligent 4-Wheel Drive with Terrain Management System™, which provides seven drive modes that let you easily switch between modes optimized for normal roads, towing and hauling, off-roading, and more.


The 2020 Ford Explorer comes with a host of engine options, including the most powerful engines ever offered in an Explorer. The base 2.3-liter EcoBoost® I-4 delivers 300 horsepower right out of the gate, and it’s capable of delivering max towing of up to 5,300 pounds with the available Class III Trailer Tow Package. The Explorer Platinum features a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 that produces 365 horsepower and 380 lb-ft of torque, and the unrelenting Explorer ST kicks it up with a more powerful version of that same engine that creates a record 400 horsepower. For an ideal blend of power and efficiency, the Explorer Limited Hybrid features a 3.3-liter hybrid powertrain that’s expected to deliver 318 horsepower and deliver an EPA-estimated RWD range of over 500 miles.


No SUV does comfort like the Ford Explorer. Boasting available multicontour front seats with Active Motion®, the Explorer delivers both lumbar support and massaging, and a spacious cabin with up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space with the seats folded down and plenty of space for up to seven with the seats up.

The Explorer also offers third-row PowerFold® seats to quickly and easily increase cargo space, and an E-Z Entry second that lets your kids rearrange the seats by pressing a button so they can get in and out without a struggle.
The cabin of the Explorer is designed to feel luxurious, with available ambient lighting, heated steering wheel, and leather seats with perforation and accent stitching. Every time you get behind the wheel of the 2020 Explorer, you won’t want to get out.
