2020 Ford Explorer Redesign: Interior, Sport & Release Date
Renewed from top to bottom, the 2020 Ford Explorer can count on a new platform, an unprecedented V6 engine, richer and refined interiors.
It’s just the name that does not change for the new generation of the Ford Explorer SUV, updated from top to bottom compared to 2011 and improved in terms of driving, engines, and technologies. A necessary step since the Explorer is a very successful SUV, with over 320,000 units delivered every year, and the competition of Mazda CX-9, Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander has become increasingly fierce.
To stand out is the new rear-wheel-drive platform or integral, shared with the largest SUV Lincoln Aviator, which should bring down the weight of this SUV (it is more than 500 cm long) and improve the towing capacity, greater than 272 kg compared to the old model (2,500 kg total).
2020 Ford Explorer Redesign
The Terrain Management system, which controls engine thrust and other parameters according to the type of ground, is standard: the driver can choose five modes for the Ford Explorer with two-wheel drive and seven for those with four-wheel drive.
The 2020 Ford Explorer has a slightly more streamlined line than the old model, with a smaller front overhang. The headlights, thinner, seem to integrate with the wide mask, while behind the elongated headlights remain on the sides already seen on the outgoing generation. Another typical stylistic element is the upright “C” upright, a sign of continuity with the generations of the past.
2020 Ford Explorer Interior
The interior of the Ford Explorer has a more modern appearance, due to the digital instrumentation (the screen is 12.3 “) and the new 10.1” monitor of the multimedia system, mounted vertically in the middle of the central cabinet: remembers a tablet not only in form but also in controls, because the quick ones are in evidence at the bottom of the screen.
2020 Ford Explorer Specs
The 2020 Ford Explorer remains a SUV for large families, thanks to the fact that you can order with five or seven seats and a long list of options to improve the comfort on board: the panoramic roof, the side openable windows are available at a distance (to cool the car after it has been in the sun for a long time), a stereo with fourteen loudspeakers and the electrically foldable third row seats, in addition to the repeater for having internet on board.
The engines are the 4-cylinder turbocharged petrol engine of 2.3 liters, with over 300 hp (the final power is in the process of being approved), and the new 3.0-liter six-cylinder turbo, which takes the place of the previous recent 3.5.
The first deliveries to America of the new Ford Explorer are expected in the summer of 2019.
