2020 Ford Explorer Updates! Everybody knows the Ford Explorer lineup. How could they not? The Explorer lineup is among the first family-oriented SUVs, perhaps even the first family SUVs with four doors. Now, we get to see the lineup’s latest iteration: the 2020 Ford Explorer. Do you want to know more about the next Explorer? IF you do, just read on.
2020 Ford Explorer Redesign
First and foremost, the redesign. The lineup hasn’t been changed for several years. That is, until the 2020 Explorer comes out. When you see the new Explorer, you will be able to notice the changes in the exterior and interior immediately.
For the exterior, the new family SUV has sleeker body lines, windswept headlights, better-looking front glass, as well as more aerodynamic nose at the front. For a family SUV, it looks very modern. If you are a fan, you can also notice that the 2020 Explorer doesn’t forget its roots. It still comes with the Explorer lineup heritage: black-colored A and B pillars and body-color C pillars.
What about the inside? For the interior, the design is brand new, just like the exterior. The 2020 Explorer comes with a uniquely-shaped steering wheel (it has three spokes and the bottom one has small double-spokes), an 8 or 10.1-inch (depending on the trim) touchscreen display, a dashboard with a bit more rounded shape and fewer buttons. It looks a lot cleaner than the 2019 Explorer.
Performance & Specs
As for what is under the hood, the 2020 Ford Explorer comes with four engine options. So far, Ford has revealed only two of these engine options: a 2.3-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine, and a 3.0-liter V6 engine. The other two engines will be revealed later. One is a hybrid engine while the other is a performance-oriented engine.
The 2.3-liter, the 4-cylinder turbo engine is the standard. For the base trim, XLT trim and Limited trim. This engine is capable of generating up to 300 hp with up to 310 lb-ft of torque. The second engine is available for the Platinum trim. It is a lot more powerful than the standard engine. It can generate up to 365 hp with up to 380 pound-feet of torque.
Both of these engine options are paired with a 10-speed auto transmission gearbox. It has been revealed that for the new Explorer, the rear-wheel system is the standard while all-wheel drive is optional.
The new Explorer will have the Co-Pilot360 technology as the standard across all trim levels. That means features such as automatic emergency braking, automatic headlights, blind-spot monitoring, forward-collision warning system, lane-keep assist, and many other features will be included as standard.
2020 Ford Explorer Price & Release Date
The starting price of the 2020 Explorer should be around $33,860 for the base trim level and up to around $60,000 for the highest trim level. Keep in mind that these prices don’t include options and other accessories.
As you can see, there are many good things that the 2020 Ford Explorer comes with. Of course, its new appearance is among these things. The 2020 Explorer is like its predecessors. It is a reliable, comfortable, and capable family SUV, something we all expect from the Explorer lineup
