The All-New 2020 Ford Explorer Arrives in Houston, TX
For 2020, Ford has completely redesigned America’s favorite SUV, the Explorer. The 2020 Ford Explorer has the model’s broadest lineup ever, with a new high-performance Explorer ST model and fuel-efficient Explorer Hybrid. The Explorer is the next model in Ford’s evolving SUV lineup, which includes the reinvented Expedition and all-new Escape.
Every new Ford Explorer, including the base, XLT, Limited and Platinum models, is built at the Ford Chicago Assembly Plant. The 2020 Explorer returns to its rear-wheel drive roots, with available four-wheel drive across the lineup for all-weather driving. New features and technology make the all-new Explorer more comfortable and capable than ever.
The most exciting new Explorer model is the 2020 Ford Explorer ST, which has been engineered by the Ford Performance team with a specially tuned 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine that produces an impressive 400 hp and 415 lb.-ft. of torque. There is a standard four-wheel drive system and quick-shifting 10-speed automatic transmission for increased performance.
“There’s no mistaking its ST DNA,” said Ed Krenz, Ford Performance chief functional engineer. “It has a performance feel with sustained performance capability and wears an unmistakably ST appearance. More than anything, it’s just a hell of a lot of fun to drive.”
The all-new 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid features a 3.3-liter hybrid powertrain which produces a combined 318 horsepower and can provide over 500 miles of EPA-estimated range on the rear-wheel drive model. The liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery is built into the chassis, so it doesn’t cut into passenger or cargo space.
