What's New for 2020?

Entering its sixth generation, the Ford Explorer received a complete refresh for the 2020 model year. Larger cabin dimensions provide more space for both passengers and cargo, and the new rear-wheel-drive platform delivers better handling and a higher tow capacity. New engine options deliver robust performance, and the Co-Pilot360 safety suite and SYNC 3 infotainment system are now standard.



The Explorer's accommodating and spacious cabin necessitate a larger overall footprint, but this mid-size crossover has no problem getting up to speed for passing and merging maneuvers. Standard power comes from a 2.3-liter turbocharged EcoBoost engine that produces 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. Power runs to the rear wheels via a 10-speed automatic transmission, and all-wheel drive is available as an option. When properly equipped, Explorer can tow up to 5,600 pounds.

For an even livelier drive, the Ford Explorer Platinum features a 3.0-liter turbocharged V-6  that generates 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. The racing-inspired ST trim finds motivation in a higher-output version of the same engine (400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque).


The Explorer's upscale and inviting cabin features attractive design elements and high-quality materials throughout. You'll also find an extensive array of available amenities, like perforated leather upholstery, a carbon-fiber-lined dash, and twin-panel moonroof. Seats are comfortable and supportive for longer journeys, and standard automatic climate control keeps things cozy no matter the temperature outside.

In its standard configuration, Explorer accommodates up to seven riders. Available second-row captain's chairs create a six-seat configuration for more passenger space and easier rear-seat access. With all seats occupied, there are 20 cubic feet for luggage and groceries behind the back seats. When you don't need the extra seating, fold the 50/50-split third-row and E-Z Entry second-row to make room for up to 88 cubic feet of max cargo capacity.



The streamlined and intuitive SYNC 3 infotainment system provides seamless access to your connected world. With standard Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, the most essential smartphone apps integrate with the central 8-inch display. Operated by voice commands, steering wheel controls, or the responsive touchscreen, it gives lets you easily control your media, maps, hands-free communications, and more. A 10.1-inch touchscreen with split-screen capability is also available.

If you've ever had to skip an ideal parking space because you doubted your parallel parking skills, the available Active Park Assist 2.0 system has you covered. With the press of a button, the system can detect a serviceable parking spot and signal you when to stop and shift into neutral. Then, simply hold down the Active Park Assist Button while the system does the rest.

Advanced Safety Features

The Ford Explorer provides a full array of advanced safety features that use the latest sensor and camera technology to support your attentive driving by helping to detect and avoid hazards.
