2020 Ford Explorer
All-new 2020 Ford Explorer.
The adventure continues.
More. To Explore.
Ford Explorer, the vehicle that opened new roads for family adventures nearly three decades ago, returns with an all-new road map – and an all-new level of comfort and capability to navigate it. America’s best-selling SUV returns to its roots with new rear-wheel-drive architecture, a new all-EcoBoost® gas engine lineup, a new 10-speed automatic transmission, an available Terrain Management System with seven drive modes, and a spacious and comfortable cabin.
Capable of handling any road – or lack of
With available Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive and seven selectable drive modes at the driver’s fingertips, the all-new Explorer is designed for whatever life throws your adventure’s way. The drive mode system, controlled by a rotary dial on the center console, lets drivers shift easily between Normal, Slippery, Trail, Deep Snow/Sand, Sport, Tow/Haul and Eco modes.
Comfort for the whole family.
Space for so much more.
The all-new 2020 Explorer was designed with improved passenger comfort in mind. Sliding second-row seats make it easy to customize the cabin to your crew.
- Best-in-class first- and second-row hip room
- Best-in-class second-row headroom
- Unsurpassed third-row headroom
If cargo is what you’re hauling, the all-new Explorer answers the bell. PowerFold® third-row seats make it easy to create a flat-floor cargo area larger than Jeep Grand Cherokee, GMC Acadia, Mazda CX-9, Dodge Durango, Nissan Pathfinder, Toyota Highlander or Subaru Ascent.
More than two-and-a-half tons of pulling power.
Explorer’s all-new rear-wheel-drive architecture contributes to it being a more-than-capable towing machine, regardless of engine. Vehicles equipped with a 3.0-liter V6 EcoBoost and the towing package can haul up to 5,600 pounds, while those outfitted with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost and a towing package can tow up to 5,300 pounds. When properly equipped, Explorer hybrid is rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds.
Turning navigation on its head
An available 10.1-inch touchscreen mounted on the center stack brings new clarity to map details. Drivers can also opt to parse the screen into separate sections, displaying music or incoming call information on one half and the navigation mapping on the other. It’s Ford’s largest-ever screen to complement SYNC® 3 compatibility with popular services like Apple CarPlayTM, Android AutoTM and Waze navigation.
Parking just got easy. Introducing Active Park Assist 2.0.
Parking hassles become a thing of the past with Ford’s new Active Park Assist 2.0. While the driver needs only press and hold a button on the dashboard, Explorer takes control of the steering wheel, gas pedal, brake pedal and gear shifter to fit the vehicle neatly into a parallel or perpendicular parking space.
Always a Co-Pilot at your side
Standard across every Explorer model is Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of driver-assist technologies designed to make every trip a confident, stress-free adventure. Post-collision braking is also standard on all models, and advanced features such as Reverse Brake Assist and Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition are available.
