2020 Ford Explorer Release Date and Features
We're only a couple months into 2019, but the first great SUV of 2020 is on the way. The dealerships that are represented by Southern California Ford Dealers are totally pumped about the 2020 Ford Explorer. All new, inside and out, the three-row 2020 Ford Explorer SUV will be available in five trim levels, nine exterior colors, and RWD. Whether you decide on the gas-powered or hybrid Ford Explorer, drivers will be getting the gem of 2020 Ford SUVs. While we don't have access to all the specs at press time, here's what we do know.
Hard To Match Performance
As of now, three gas-powered and one hybrid engine will power the 2020 Ford Explorer. Most trims will come standard with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost inline-four that produces upwards of 300 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. Next up is a robust 3.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost V6 that is rated at 365 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque. If you go with the 2020 Ford Explorer ST trim, where was developed with help from the Ford Performance Team, you'll get a mind-blowing 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engine that kicks out 400 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft. of torque and has a top speed of 143-mph. We're not 100% sure about the hybrid engine, but it should be a 3.3-liter V6 paired with the latest lithium-ion battery technology. Other performance benefits include 87 cubic feet of cargo room behind the first-row, 5,000 pounds* of towing power and the all-new available Terrain Management System with up to seven selectable drive modes.
With the 2020 Ford Explorer, Ford really hits it out of the park when it comes to the technology. There will be an available 12.3-inch digital instrument panel cluster with productivity screen that dwarfs the size of other SUV screens. This customizable cluster allows you to configure both the look and function of your driving information. When it comes to infotainment, there will be a SYNC 3 10.1-inch portrait-oriented touchscreen with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto compatibility and FordPass Connect Wi-Fi service for up to 10 devices. From some of the pictures we've seen, this touchscreen will look at work more like a tablet than your average in-dash control pad. Drivers will also have access to the best sound quality around with a 980-watt B&O audio system with 14-speaker. In keeping with the tech theme, the 2020 Ford Explorer will come standard with five Ford Co-Pilot360 driver-assist technologies including:
- Pre-collision Assist with AEB
- BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert
- Adaptive Cruise Control
- Auto High-Beam Headlamps
- Lane-Keeping System
