Vehicle Profile: 2020 Ford Explorer
Since its launch in 1990, the Ford Explorer has reigned supreme as America’s best-selling SUV of all time. As the competition intensifies, Ford is doubling down with the all-new 2020 Explorer, which takes everything generations of drivers have loved about the rugged SUV and ramps it up to a new level. With dynamic looks, a versatile and comfortable interior, cutting-edge technology and superior performance, the 2020 Ford Explorer shows that even the best can get better.
Great for everyday driving
The 2020 Ford Explorer is ready for your adventurous ambitions, but it’s also ideal for your everyday excursions. If you want to make a splash the next time you pull up at work, the Explorer lets you do just that with a completely redesigned look that manages to be sleek, muscular, rugged and refined all at once. The Explorer offers spacious seating for up to seven for your next big family road trip, a maximum 87 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row for your next home improvement haul and a ton of flexibility in between. No matter the job at hand, the Explorer is the perfect tool for getting it done in style.
A more intelligent SUV
Your safety comes first in all scenarios on the road or off, and so the 2020 Explorer is equipped with standard Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology. This suite of intelligent driver-assistive features includes Blind Spot Information System, Lane-Keeping System and Automatic Emergency Braking, helping to keep you feeling more confident behind the wheel.
For your comfort and convenience, the Explorer also offers innovative technologies like available Active Park Assist 2.0, an available 10.1-inch LCD capacitive portrait touch screen and connectivity features like Ford+Alexa, Apple CarPlay® and Android Auto™. Also, the Explorer is the only vehicle offered with Michelin® self-sealing tires, which help guard against derailed vacation plans. Inside and out, the 2020 Ford Explorer works smarter so that you can do more.
The most capable Explorer ever
Ford built the new Explorer from the ground up to make it the best version that has ever been put to the road. This shines through in its new rear-wheel-drive platform, which enables up to 600 pounds more maximum towing capacity when properly equipped, as well as superior handling and off-road performance. When equipped with four-wheel drive, the 2020 Explorer features the all-new Terrain Management System™ with your choice of seven selectable drive modes, making adapting to different conditions as easy as turning a dial.
The new Explorer lineup is also the most versatile it’s ever been thanks to the addition of the new Explorer Limited Hybrid and first-ever Explorer ST. The former offers great fuel economy and a projected EPA-estimated range of over 500 miles while still delivering 5,000 pounds of maximum towing potential thanks to its 3.3-liter Atkinson hybrid powertrain. The latter is the most powerful Explorer Ford has ever built, putting out 400 horsepower plus 415 lb.-ft. of torque with its Ford Performance-tuned 3.0-liter EcoBoost® and standard Intelligent 4WD.**
An exceptional mixture of premium styling, modern amenities, sporty driving dynamics and no shortage of rugged capabilities, the 2020 Ford Explorer is the best yet in a long line of incredible vehicles.
