What's New for the 2020 Ford Explorer?

There have been numerous updates for the 2020 model year, bringing the Explorer SUV to a new level. First of all, it's longer than it used to be, giving the passengers a little more space, and horsepower has increased with the 2.3-liter engine. The SUV can either be a rear-wheel or all-wheel drive model, depending on your anticipated needs. A few other tweaks have been made, and there's now a trim that can generate an impressive 400 horsepower.

Since technology continues to evolve, expect to see a lot of fancy features in the new Explorers, such as driver-assist systems and the ability to start the car with a smartphone around Nassau County. The 2020 year is the one in which Ford introduces us to the hybrid Explorer, which is an option for those customers who want to reduce their gas consumption.

New Ford Explorer Features


The Explorer uses a 2.3-liter engine as a standard component. It comes with 300 horsepower, which is plenty for most situations around Queens. If you want more out of your SUV, consider upgrading to the higher trims, which run on a 3.0-liter V6. The Platinum version of the Explorer uses this engine and outputs 365 horsepower, and the ST trim pushes the envelope further with this engine and creates 400 horsepower. The hybrid model uses a 3.3-liter V6 and an electric motor to make a total of 318 horsepower, so you won't see any drop in capability if you go for something more efficient.


As a newly designed SUV, the 2020 Ford Explorer has many advanced features. It uses Ford Co-Pilot360 technology to keep you safe, and this package comes with a few different driver-assist features. You can use the blind spot monitoring system when you're changing lanes, the rearview camera when you're backing up, and the automatic high beams when you're driving in poorly lit areas. You won't even know the automated emergency braking system is there unless you ever have to use it, as it only engages the brakes if it seems like a frontal collision is about to happen.


If you're not a fan of parking, opt for the available Active Park Assist 2.0 system that can do all the steering for you around Great Neck. With a SYNC 3 infotainment system and SiriusXM Satellite Radio, you'll stay connected and entertained on the road. You can even use the FordPass Connect app on a smartphone to remotely lock, unlock, and start your car. Available on the Explorer are navigation, Ford+Alexa, and a premium sound system.

2020 Ford Explorer Trim Levels

The five trim levels of the Explorer are the base model, XLT, Limited, ST, and Platinum. The base model has the driver-assist features we previously described, along with cloth seats, LED taillamps, a power liftgate, and a remote start system. The XLT makes things more convenient with an intelligent access system and a push-button start, and it comes standard with captain's seats in the second row. Its roof racks can be useful whenever there's larger gear to hold.

The Limited trim is a bit more stylish and modern, with dual chrome exhaust tips, a hands-free liftgate, a heated steering wheel, leather seats, and ambient lighting. At the top are the ST and Platinum. Their most significant upgrades are the larger engine and standard four-wheel drive. The Platinum comes standard with a moonroof and perforated leather seats, and the ST has sporty accents and special badging throughout.
