Totally redesigned for the new model year, the 2020 FordExplorer 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.
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 Explorer features tech for every occasion, from work to play to daily driving. Its Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of safety features includes a Blind-Spot Information System, Rear View Camera, and a Lane Keeping System, all of which are especially helpful when hauling a trailer.
Other driver assist technology on the new Explorer includes available Active Park Assist 2.0, which detects appropriate parking spots and then parks for you, as well as Auto High-Beam Headlights that turn off when you’re passing another vehicle and turn back on when the road is clear.
The new Explorer also offers unique infotainment features in addition to its SYNC® infotainment system. One is Ford+Alexa, giving you access to your Amazon content and even make purchases, as well as Ford and Waze, for a navigation app with crowd-sourced traffic updates that make your commute more predictable.
