The Design for the 2020 Ford Explorer
The 2020 Ford Explorer has more passenger space and cargo room. There is 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space so the seven passengers and their gear will fit nicely with no problem. The available third-row PowerFold seats will come in handy, especially if your Explorer stays full with family, friends, pets or gear.
Trim Options for the 2020 Ford Explorer
With the new 2020 Ford Explorer, you have a choice of two brand new, dynamic, and capable trims. The new Explorer ST trim has a high-powered engine and produces 400 horsepower, 415 lb.-ft of torque and reaches a top speed of 143 mph. The Explorer ST has an athletic look with lively driving dynamics. Both of these powerful trims take adventure to the next level.
Then, we have the first ever Explorer Hybrid which is similar in performance to the Explorer ST thanks to the Ford Performance Team. This Hybrid can tow an incredible 5,000 pounds and is also totally off-road capable.
Tech features for the 2020 Ford Explorer
The 2020 Ford Explorer has tech features that keep things personal, like the brilliant 10.1-inch LCD portrait touchscreen that displays the Ford’s SYNC 3 technology. With SYNC 3, you can pair up your smartphone to connect with Apple CarPlay or Android Auto. No matter what smartphone you prefer, you will have all your favorite apps, music, contacts and more all displayed on the covientent touchscreen.
Ford makes it easy to be a confident and a safer driver with the Ford Co-Pilot360. There are a lot of smart safety features that are a part of the Ford Co-Pilot 360, like Auto High-Beams and Rear View Camera. The Lane-Keeping System is another feature that operates in the background and helps you from drifting to another lane. After multiple times of drifting from your lane, a coffee-cup icon will display on your dash letting you know that you need a break. How convenient is that?
Capability of the 2020 Ford Explorer
Packed with the latest advanced tech features, the 2020 Ford Explorer has everything you would want and need. It now has all-new rear wheel drive which helps increase its performance and is the reason why the Explorer has a more athletic design. The rear wheel drive has increased the Explorer’s towing capability by 600 pounds and has improved its off-road performance.
When properly equipped, the 2020 Explorer can now tow up to 5,600 pounds.
That means there is nothing that can slow this machine down.
A feature that is extremely useful is the new Terrain Management System. No matter what the weather is or the terrain you are driving on, your 2020 Explorer can take on the road with ease. With a dial displayed on your new available 12.3-inch digital cluster, you can easily select the terrain mode you would like. These include: normal, trail, deep snow/sand, slippery, sport, tow/haul and new eco mode.
