A charter nameplate of the modern utility vehicle era, the Ford Explorer continues as one of the industry's most popular SUVs thanks to the automaker's dedication to consistent improvement. For the 2020 model year, nearly three decades after its original launch, Explorer rolled into its sixth generation, completely redesigned with updates to every aspect of the ownership experience. Here's a quick look at some of the all-new Explorer's most notable characteristics.

  • Accommodations and Utility: The new Ford Explorer offers three rows of roomy seating for up to seven people, with ample headroom and legroom through. If you don’t require the last seatbelt, Knoxville families can opt for second-row captain's chairs to open up the space and have easier access to the back seats. The second- and third-rows fold in numerous passenger/cargo configurations, with a maximum carrying capacity of 88 cubic feet.

  • Robust Powerplants: The 2020 Explorer comes standard with a powerful and efficient turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine (300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque) and has a max tow rating of up to 5,600 pounds. For Maryville drivers seeking a little more internal motivation, Platinum and ST models take things a notch, with a robust twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V-6.

  • Advanced Safety Features: The Ford Co-Pilot360 package now comes standard across the lineup. It includes driver-assistance technologies like blind-spot monitoring, automatic emergency braking, automatic high beams, and lane-keeping assist. Pigeon Forge drivers can equip adaptive cruise control as an option on XLT models or standard equipment on Limited and higher.

  • Well Equipped: Even at the base trim level, Explorer offers a generous selection of standard amenities. Highlights include 18-inch wheels, LED headlights, privacy glass, parking sensors, a rearview camera, dual-zone automatic climate control, a power-adjustable driver's seats, a power liftgate, an 8-inch SYNC 3 touchscreen infotainment system, and Apple CarPlay and Android Auto.
