      DETROIT, Jan. 9, 2019 – Ford today introduces its all-new 2020 Explorer – a complete redesign of America’s all-time best-selling SUV – that now features the broadest model lineup ever, more power and space, and smart new technologies to help tackle life’s adventures.

      Explorer is now more capable, comfortable, sportier and roomier in all three rows thanks to Ford’s flexible new rear-wheel-drive architecture. The strengths of the all-new Ford Explorer were showcased at a special reveal event for employees, fans, dealers, suppliers, government officials and media today at Ford Field in Detroit, where Ford brought to life how it can help American families get the most out of their road trips. The all-new SUV arrives this summer.

      “Explorer drivers told us what they want – more capability, more power, more space,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s head of product development and purchasing. “They want more technology, not just for the driver, but for the whole family. And they want all of it with a beautifully sporty exterior. This new Explorer gives them all of that, and more, helping make every journey more enjoyable.”

      Improved off-road capability comes courtesy of intelligent four-wheel drive and an available new Terrain Management SystemTM that features seven easy-to-engage drive modes. Powertrain offerings include a 3.0-liter turbocharged EcoBoost® V6 projected to produce 365 horsepower and 380 lb.-ft. of torque using 93-octane gas, making this the most powerful Explorer ever. The Explorer lineup now features standard, XLT, Limited, Limited Hybrid, ST and Platinum models.

      The all-new Explorer comes packed with more than a dozen new standard features for only $400 more over the previous model. Standard features include a power liftgate, 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine with all-new 10-speed transmission, 8-inch digital touch screen with SYNC® 3, FordPass ConnectTM Wi-Fi service for up to 10 devices and more.

      Owners will find design and engineering updates throughout that deliver comfort and SUV functionality. Explorer’s stylish, sloped-roof silhouette protects rear-seat headroom, while its comfort-enhanced second-row seats slide to improve access to the third row.

      “We obsessed about what Explorer customers need and want,” said Bill Gubing, Explorer chief engineer. “We met with customer groups, pored through internet forums, and dissected social media posts to determine what they love about today’s Explorer and understand their pain points. Then we found ways to improve it across the board. Every enhancement on this all-new Explorer was inspired by our customers.”

      Technology designed to heighten the experience of traveling
      Building upon Ford’s push to bring more driver-assist technology to market, the all-new Explorer introduces available Active Park Assist 2.0. The class-exclusive feature – standard on Explorer Platinum – allows the driver to park in a parallel or perpendicular spot with a touch of a button without having to work the steering wheel, gear shifter, gas pedal or brake pedal. Available reverse brake assist, also standard on Platinum, uses radar and ultrasonic sensors to detect an object in Explorer’s path, and can apply the brakes automatically to avoid an imminent collision when the vehicle is backing up at a low speed – such as when exiting a driveway.

      Explorer also is available with Ford’s all-new Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition. In addition to automatically slowing when traffic ahead slows and helping keep the vehicle centered in its lane, the system uses cameras to read speed signs and, combined with the available navigation system, adjusts cruise control settings accordingly.

      11-Ford-Explorer-Platinum.jpg

      Explorer comes standard with Ford Co-Pilot360TM, a suite of driver-assist technologies including:

      • Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, which includes Pedestrian Detection, Forward Collision Warning and Dynamic Brake Support
      • Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert
      • Lane-Keeping System
      • Rearview camera with built-in lens cleaner
      • Auto headlamps with auto high-beams
      Other available Ford Co-Pilot360 technologies include Evasive Steering Assist, which provides steering support to help avoid a collision; and Post-Impact Braking provides braking after a collision to lessen injury and damage caused by a secondary crash event.

      “It’s not about filling the vehicle with technology for technology’s sake,” said Chris Billman, Ford Co-Pilot360 engineering manager. “It’s about improving the experience, making driving less stressful, and helping the driver to feel more confident behind the wheel.”

      Passengers in all three rows will enjoy FordPass Connect, a standard feature that serves up 4G LTE Wi-Fi for up to 10 mobile devices with a compatible wireless subscription service. FordPass Connect gives drivers remote access to their Explorer, allowing them to use their smartphone to lock, unlock, locate and start the vehicle, as well as monitor key vehicle diagnostics.

      Explorer features an available 10.1-inch touch screen mounted in portrait configuration on the center stack. Navigation maps can fill the entire screen for easy viewing, or split the space with audio information. The screen uses capacitive glass comparable to what consumers are accustomed to on smartphones and tablets, providing a quicker, more responsive interaction with the updated SYNC 3 system. Standard SYNC 3’s more intuitive layout gives drivers compatibility with available features such as Apple CarPlay®, Android Auto® and Waze navigation.

      A wireless charging pad is available that allows customers to recharge compatible mobile devices, and up to four USB ports, including new type-C outlets, charge next-generation mobile devices. Up to three 12-volt outlets and a 110-volt outlet are also available.

      For music lovers, Explorer offers an available 980-watt, 14-speaker B&O premium audio system. Access to SiriusXMTM satellite radio is standard and comes with new touch screen graphics and functionality – including a display of the day’s sports scores. HD RadioTM is standard on Limited and Platinum models.

      The touch screen shares information with the available 12.3-inch all-digital instrument cluster, which displays important vehicle information such as speedometer and gas gauge. It uses 3D animated graphics to change information depending on which of the seven drive modes are selected using the available Terrain Management SystemTM.

      Meticulously recrafted to be the best Explorer ever
      Ford’s recipe for Explorer has always relied on three main ingredients – capability, comfort and design. The new rear-wheel-drive architecture enables bumper-to-bumper improvements that include an even more athletic appearance, increased capability and the best passenger accommodations in an Explorer ever.

      The powerful new engine lineup features a pair of EcoBoost entries – a 2.3-liter turbocharged I-4 that comes standard on base, XLT and Limited models, and a 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged V6 that powers Explorer Platinum. The reinvigorated 2.3-liter engine is projected to produce 300 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque, with improved performance over the outgoing Explorer equipped with the same engine.

      “A vehicle like Explorer can’t just be good-looking,” said Craig Patterson, Ford SUV marketing manager. “Explorer customers need it to do certain things. They need to be able to drive certain places and haul specific items. This Explorer performs no matter what adventures you have in store.”

      Up to seven selectable drive modes are available for customers to tailor their drive experience to road, weather and terrain conditions on demand. Rear-wheel-only Explorer drive modes include normal, sport, trail, slippery, tow/haul and eco. Vehicles equipped with intelligent four-wheel drive add a deep snow and sand mode for improved performance off-road.

      Rear-wheel drive also enables more towing capability when properly equipped, regardless of engine. Vehicles equipped with a 3.0-liter EcoBoost can tow up to 5,600 pounds, a 12 percent increase over outgoing models with 3.5-liter EcoBoost. New models outfitted with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost and Class III Trailer Tow Package can tow up to 5,300 pounds, versus the 3,000 pounds today’s similarly equipped Explorer is capable of.

      Hauling boats and trailers was certainly a priority for the Explorer team, but so was accommodating smaller items such as everyday drink bottles and cellphones. With every detail scrutinized, the new Explorer can boast 123 cubic liters of stowage space throughout the cabin, giving passengers in all three rows no shortage of places to stow personal items.

      Available PowerFold® third-row seats and new E-Z entry second-row seats let drivers create a flat-floor cargo area that stretches out to offer 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space – wide enough to fit standard 4-foot building materials, depending on seating configuration. Accommodating families of all sizes, second-row seats feature a new mechanism that allows for easy entrance and exit to the third row using just one hand. Redesigned ISOFIX anchor points allow child seat installation anywhere in the second and third rows. Second-row windows are equipped with available retractable sunshades.

      A stylish, modern design that is pure Explorer
      A number of consistent design qualities have helped define Explorer over the past 29 years, and the design team strived to hold on to these important pieces of heritage. Longtime traits – including Explorer’s blacked-out A-pillars and D-pillars and body-color C-pillars – are retained. Changes to the overall profile include a more sloping roofline and shorter front overhang, giving the vehicle a sportier, more stylish appearance.

      Explorer comes standard with 18-inch painted aluminum wheels, but across the lineup drivers can opt for one of seven wheel designs, including 21-inch premium aluminum wheels available on Platinum models. Other Platinum differentiators include door handles with satin aluminum insert, liftgate appliqué, lower bodyside cladding insert, roof-rack side rails and a unique grille with satin aluminum finish.

      Platinum models also feature a standard twin-panel moonroof, which allows light to flood the most comfortable Explorer cabin ever. Explorer Platinum includes special leather seats, plus leather-wrapped steering wheel, dashboard, door rollovers, and door and front console armrests.

      The all-new Explorer is manufactured at Chicago Assembly Plant. New vehicles are due in showrooms this summer.

      A Drive Mode for Every Road
      With an available Terrain Management System that features seven selectable drive modes, the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer is designed to take on adventures of all shapes and sizes. Rear-wheel-drive equipped vehicles include six drive modes, but do not include Deep Snow/Sand mode.

      Normal
      For everyday driving, normal mode is the perfect balance of excitement, comfort and convenience.

      Sport
      For spirited on-road driving, sport mode increases throttle response, provides a sportier steering feel and quicker shifting. Suspension stiffens with an emphasis on handling and control. Transmission holds gears longer, helping vehicle accelerate faster when shifting.

      Eco
      For more efficient, responsible driving, eco mode helps deliver maximum fuel efficiency and increases driving range.

      Tow/haul
      For improved transmission operation when towing a trailer or heavy load, tow/haul mode moves upshifts to higher engine speeds to reduce frequency of transmission shifting. Also provides engine braking in all forward gears, which slows vehicle and assists in controlling it when descending a grade. Amount of downshift braking provided varies based on how much driver presses the brake pedal.

      Slippery
      Slippery mode adjusts transmission shift schedule, pedal response and traction control for better handling on firm surfaces covered with loose or slippery material such as ice, water, grass or a thin layer of gravel or sand.

      Deep snow/sand
      Deep snow/sand mode adjusts transmission shift schedule, pedal progression, traction control and the driveline configuration for better handling in deep snow or on soft, dry sand.

      Trail
      Trail mode adjusts transmission shift schedule, pedal progression, traction control and the driveline configuration for better handling on muddy, rutted, soft or uneven terrain.

      I noticed there was no mention of fuel tank capacity. Waiting to see if remote control front windows are Global Open AND Close. I see inboard armrests now on the 2nd row captain's chairs.

      "Explorer also is available with Ford’s all-new Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control with Speed Sign Recognition. In addition to automatically slowing when traffic ahead slows and helping keep the vehicle centered in its lane, the system uses cameras to read speed signs and, combined with the available navigation system, adjusts cruise control settings accordingly."

      Does this mean we can't set the cruise control over the speed limit? That's no fun.

      Hopefully the driver will be able to "bump it up" with the steering wheel controls, or just set it manually at the speed you want it to maintain. :dunno:

      It seems really odd that they would use three different fuel tanks.

      Thank you. Don't know how I missed that. That is an increase of 12.5 Litres (82.5) over the current 70 L tank for us Canadians.:)

      Tech Specs show six-passenger seating capacity for all 2020 Explorer trim levels. Does this imply all models get second-row captain's chairs instead of a bench seat?

      Look again, the base model gets a bench and it is listed as seating for seven

      You are correct. I missed that the base 2020 Explorer can accommodate seven while all other trim levels seat only six.

      I hope they fix the spacing between the front seats and the doors.

      Not sure why they would offer the bench on only the lower trim...seems like that will cost them buyers (at least myself). I really wanted to get an ST. Chevy did the same thing with the Traverse. Pls tell me I am not going to have to buy a Pilot...since I must have a third row.
