Fully redesigned for the 2020 model year, the Ford Explorer enters its sixth generation with improvements to every facet: from its spacious seating and convenient amenities, to its potent powertrains and utilitarian versatility. It's everything you expect and more from a mid-size SUV and it's one of our favorite new Ford models. Here's a quick look at a few of the Explorer's top attributes:

  • Power to Spare: Out of the box, the 2020 Explorer finds plenty of motivation in a turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine that generates 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque. That's more than enough for most purposes, but if you're hungry for even more power, Explorer has you covered. Explorer Platinum is powered by a turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6 that makes 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque, and the sport-inspired ST ups the ante even further, generating 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.

    Rear-wheel drive is standard across the lineup, improving handling and balance, and increasing Explorer's max tow rating.

  • Standard Safety Features: You don't need to opt for a high trim level or equip an expensive package to get advanced driver aids. The 2020 Explorer comes standard with a full suite of Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies, including:
    • BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System) with Rear Cross-Traffic Alert
    • Auto High-Beam Headlamps
    • Automatic Emergency Braking with Pre-Collision Assist
    • Rear View Camera
    • Lane-Keeping System

  • Spacious and Versatile: Inside the Explorer's upscale cabin, you'll find comfortable accommodations for seven--or six with second-row captain's chairs. The second and third rows can be folded in a variety of combinations, providing nearly 90 cubic-feet of maximum cargo capacity. There are numerous small-item storage solutions throughout the cabin, and if you need extra carrying capacity, Explorer is rated to tow up to 5,000 pounds.
