    The all-new 2020 Explorer has been completely redesigned — inside, outside and under the hood. In addition to new capability enhancing features like rear-wheel drive, there are also two new available trims. Ford now offers a commanding, no-compromise the most powerful Explorer to date.

    Design

    Command the road.

    The power and driving dynamics of the all-new 2020 Explorer come wrapped in an eye-catching design that boasts authentic comfort and style. And because it was built for the active lifestyle, you can also expect an interior space that accommodates the kids, the dog, the sports equipment, camping gear and just about anything else you may need on the road to adventure.

    Adaptive LED Lighting

    Standard on the Platinum, adaptive headlamps help guide you through the night, adjusting accordingly with your vehicle. When you turn, the lights turn with you, aiding in your visibility around corners and helping you to more quickly react to what’s around the bend. And with LED lighting in the front and rear of every Explorer, you get superior light quality wherever you go.

    Seats that move to fit you.

    Multicontour seats with Active Motion® offer an added dose of comfort to the driver and front passenger. This feature allows you to easily position your seat in order to accommodate your preferences. Additionally, the Active Motion component offers five new massage themes for an isolated back massage that focuses on either the upper back, lower back or the pelvic region. The combination of these amenities help prevent fatigue so you can stay fresh on long drives.

    Built to make an impression

    The first thing you’ll notice about the 2020 Explorer is its dynamic redesign, including signature headlights with distinctive LED lighting and other strong exterior details. The interior is also crafted with an array of defining attributes. Available Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces, a hexagon carbon-fiber-lined front dash and a precision-engineered center console and rotary gear shift dial set you up for comfort.

    Technology

    Adventure-ready technology.

    The 2020 Explorer comes equipped with plenty of smart and capable features to prepare you for any adventure. For added assistance, Explorer comes with Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology, a lineup of available driver-assist features designed to enhance your driving experience. You’ll also find that staying connected is easy with features like SYNC® 3 and FordPass Connect™ on your side.

    Evasive Steering Assist

    This available feature can help make it easier to avoid a potential collision if there’s a slow or stopped vehicle in your path. It doesn’t steer for you, but it can provide extra steering support if the system’s warning goes off and you need to maneuver around the vehicle ahead.

    Your home away from home.

    The 2020 Explorer gives you the tools for seamless adventures. With the help of Innovative Technology, you can sit back and relax, staying connected with features like SYNC® 3 and in-vehicle Wi-Fi hotspot. The added benefit of an available wireless charger gives you a reason to keep your phone on standby while you enjoy some time away in your personal sanctuary.

    Hill Descent Control

    Steep hills are often tricky to navigate. Available Hill Descent Control can help make the situation easier – and anxiety-free – by doing just what its name says. It helps you maintain a set speed when you’re driving down an incline, by automatically applying the brake when needed.

    Flexibility

    Prepared for anything.

    The 2020 Explorer is designed to be flexible, so you don't have to sacrifice play for work or family for fun. It gives you the tools to take on any adventure with a number of features that make it easier to do more, like available Michellin ® self-sealing tires, extra cargo space and a B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen.


    Tri-Zone Climate Control

    Tri-zone climate control lets you personalize the comfort level for you and your passengers with individualized temperature settings. Separate climate zones for the driver and front passenger plus one of the back seat passengers create a cozy ride for everyone inside.


    Cargo Space

    Explorer delivers when you need configurable cargo space. With the second- and third-row seats in the upright position, you have maximum seating plus enough cargo space to haul the essentials. If you need more room, the Explorer provides up to 87 cubic feet of cargo space behind the first row.


    B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen

    Enjoy the ride with the B&O Sound System by Bang & Olufsen. With this standard 12-speaker system you can get off to an exciting start, appease a car full of kids or simply wind down with your favorite tunes at the end of a long day. If you want to turn it up a notch, there's also the option of a booming 980 watt, 14-speaker system, available with the Premium Technology Package.

    Capability

    Do what you want. And then some.

    The 2020 Explorer is ready for any adventure, thanks to an array of capability-enhancing features. From all-new RWD and 10-speed transmission to the 3.0L EcoBoost® engine and available 4WD with Terrain Management System,™ the Explorer is prepared for the road ahead.


    10 Speed Transmission

    The new 10-speed transmission makes transitioning between speeds a more efficient process, ensuring smooth upshifts and downshifts. Compared to 6-speed, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance, with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band.


    New Rear Wheel Drive

    The 2020 Explorer comes equipped with all-new RWD to maximize performance and design. Rear-wheel-drive architecture enables a sportier, more athletic design, improved on- and off-road capability and 600 pounds more in maximum towing capacity when properly equipped.


    Sidewind Stabilization

    Sidewind stabilization can help counteract heavy wind conditions, helping stabilize the vehicle in situations where you are likely to encounter heavy gusts of wind. This system keeps you from having to fight the wind and put in extra effort when overtaking large trucks, crossing a bridge or simply driving on the open road.
