As if it were right there in the name, the 2020 Ford Explorer is equipped with the kind of power and performance that makes exploration not just possible, but easy. Adventures will come fast—quite literally—thanks to the range of engines found in the Explorer lineup, from the standard turbocharged 2.3L EcoBoost® engine producing 300 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft of torque, to the incredibly efficient, naturally aspirated 3.3L Hybrid V6 engine offering a combined highway and city fuel consumption rate of just 9.6 L/100 km. Between these two choices you’ll find a Twin Turbocharged 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 that’s good for 365 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft of torque in the Explorer Platinum, and an astounding 400 horsepower and 415 lb.-ft of torque in the Ford Performance-calibrated Explorer ST. No matter your engine of choice, the 2020 Ford Explorer offers Intelligent 4WD standard across the lineup, with each engine matched to Ford’s advanced 10-Speed Automatic Transmission with SelectShift® capability—offering smart driving modes for improving fuel economy or embracing the mighty roar found under the hood. Keeping things dialed in, Ford’s Terrain Management System™ comes standard; an easy-to-use centre console dial with seven selectable drive modes for any foreseeable road conditions.

Inside and out, the 2020 Ford Explorer features impressive design cues that communicate both its serious power and utility. The redesigned Explorer has an athletic stance, bordering on aggressive, thanks to a sculpted front and rear fascia featuring all-new signature headlamps and LED lighting. Aerodynamic curves run along the sides of the Explorer, leading from the high front wheel wells to the tail lights that flank the available Hands-Free, Foot-Activated Liftgate—where you can find up to 2,483 litres of cargo space.

Inside the spacious 2020 Explorer, form meets function thanks to a generous helping of soft-touch surfaces and smart utility. The adaptable E-Z Entry second-row seats allow third-row access at the push of a button, even with child-safety seats in place, while the available PowerFold® third-row bench seating allows you to oscillate from carrying passengers to cargo with ease. You can also outfit the front row of your Ford with the available Multicontour seats with Active Motion®, giving you access to multiple seat preferences for different drivers—alongside massage compatibility, for an isolated massage allowing you to stay fresher longer behind the wheel.

While the 2020 Ford Explorer certainly offers a great deal of both power and finesse, it also shines on the technology front. Standard Auto High-Beam Headlamps adjust to the levels of light outside to switch on and off—including oncoming headlights—while the available Adaptive LED lighting technology, standard on the Platinum trim, actually turns in concert with your vehicle to help illuminate your path on winding roads. Ford’s available SYNC® 3 infotainment system provides hands-free access to your smartphone, thanks to Apple CarPlay™ and Android Auto™ compatibility, in addition to an easy to use LCD touchscreen ranging from 6.5 inches to the massive 10.1 inch portrait touchscreen. This, along with standard and available features like FordPass Connect™ with Wi-Fi Hotspot, wireless charging, Auto-Dimming Sideview Mirrors, and a 12.3” customizable cluster display, makes the 2020 Ford Explorer one of the most advanced SUVs on the market today.


Adding to the impressive advancements found in the 2020 Ford Explorer, Ford Co-Pilot360™ comes standard—a bevy of advanced safety and driver-assistance features making every drive safer, simpler, and more enjoyable. Whether tackling crowded urban landscapes or high speed-highways, standard features like BLIS® (Blind Spot Information System), Lane Keeping System, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Auto High-Beam Headlamps, and a Rear View Camera always come in handy; the available Ford Co-Pilot360™ Assist+ package features even more features to make the Explorer an incredibly safe choice. These features, plus the guarantee of your 2020 Explorer being Built Ford Tough, make this exceptional SUV an incredibly easy choice.

Explorer Model Changes

For its sixth generation, the 2020 Ford Explorer underwent a complete redesign—making it substantially different from the 2019 version, or any other version that came before it. However, while the exterior changes are easy enough to notice at a glance, it’s the interior changes that really separate the 2020 version from its predecessors. A unibody platform and longitudinally-mounted engine, not to mention an all-new choice of engines, has the 2020 Ford Explorer performing in a completely different league. However, there is still something to be said about the rugged capability that the Explorer has shown since its introduction for the 1991 model year—so if you’re looking for a dependable, Built Ford Tough SUV that promises loads of real world versatility, don’t hesitate to check out the selection of pre-owned Ford Explorers at Midland’s Bourgeois Motors.
