Ford Unveils Redesigned Explorer with New Trim Levels and Packages

Ford has relied on the same platform and design for its mid-size, family-hauling SUV for the better part of a decade. The Explorer has had great success with its three-row, front-wheel drive setup. However, excellence demands progress. The engineers at Ford have heeded those words and developed an all-new Explorer.

Ford announced its top-down redesign for the 2020 Explorer in the early days of 2019. Changes are obvious at a glance -- the new model has a completely redesigned exterior with a fresh new fascia and more. But the changes continue when you look underneath the sheet metal. This is the first Explorer in a generation that returns to a rear-wheel drive-based platform.

There are new packages and trim levels to get excited about as well.

The new Explorer ST gives you extra power under the hood. It's a performance model with a hearty 400 horsepower under the hood. Plus, Ford Performance tuned its suspension to deliver precise, dynamic handling.

The new Explorer Hybrid is no slouch either. Its 3.3-liter V6 works with an electric motor to produce a combined 318 horsepower and 336 pound-feet of torque. It also offers a range of up to 500 miles and allows for up to 5,000 pounds of towing.

Ford has slated the 2020 Explorer to arrive at dealers later this year. We invite you to come learn more about the Explorer here at Fairlane Ford near Dearborn and Detroit. We'll fill you in all the exciting details.
