2020 Ford Explorer Lineup Technology Features
America’s all-time best-selling SUV, the Ford Explorer, is completely redesigned for 2020. The entire Explorer lineup is more efficient, more eye-catching and more stylish than ever before. And more technology is onboard as well.
The 2020 Ford Explorer top 5 technology features
The 2020 Ford Explorer is available in four trim levels – XLT, Limited, ST and Platinum – each of which comes with a distinct selection of technologies. Key available features include a highly-advanced hybrid powertrain, the Co-Pilot360 driver assistance suite, the SYNC 3 multimedia center, Active Park Assist and Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management.
1. Hybrid powertrain
For the first time ever, the Ford Explorer is available as a hybrid. The hybrid powertrain, which pairs a 3.3L V6 engine and electric motor, is available on Limited Models. Together, the gasoline-electric duo cranks out 318 hp and 322 lb.-ft. while also maximizing efficiency.
The Co-Pilot360 suite bundles the latest Advanced Driver Assistance Systems (ADAS) together. Standard features found inside this suite package include:
• BLIS (Blind Spot Information System)
• Rear View Camera
• Lane-Keeping System
• Automatic Emergency Braking
• Auto High-Beam Headlamps
Buyers can also upgrade to Co-Pilot360+, which features:
• Evasive Steering Assist
• Post Impact Braking
Regarding the Co-Pilot360, Chris Billman, Ford Co-Pilot360 engineering manager, says, “It’s not about filling the vehicle with technology for technology’s sake. It’s about improving the experience, making driving less stressful, and helping the driver to feel more confident behind the wheel.”
3. SYNC 3 multimedia center
For many years, the SYNC multimedia center has set the benchmark for infotainment technology. The latest version, found in the 2020 Ford Explorer, offers more features than ever before.
Through the system’s available 10.1-inch touchscreen display, users can access features like Apple CarPlay, Android Auto and Waze. Amazon Alexa is also available when the SYNC 3 system is paired with the Ford+Alexa App.
4. Active Park Assist
Parallel parking can be a trying task. Fortunately, there’s the 2020 Ford Explorer with available Active Park Assist 2.0. With just the push of a button, the system automatically handles both parallel and perpendicular parking duties. All you need to do is stop and put the car in neutral according to system cues. The Explorer takes care of the rest. Park out assist is also included so you can get out of a parking spot as easily as you got in.
5. Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System
Most modern SUVs are built exclusively for the street. But not the 2020 Ford Explorer. The Explorer is more than capable of off-road adventure, thanks to its Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System. The brand-new technology offers access to up to seven Selectable Drive modes via a dial mounted in the center console. Available modes include normal, trail, deep snow/sand, slippery, sport, tow/haul and eco.
