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

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

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.

The Base is not the only trim with a bench seat. It is an option on the Platinum. All Explorers have a third row seat. I suppose you may always be able to add a bench as some members have done with current models.

I have not studied the order guide, does the ST have unique leather? May not match if so..

That and fit was a consideration but thought I'd throw it out there as a possible solution depending upon how badly the ST was wanted.

All I know is that Heads Up Display hasn't been shown in any pictures nor is it mentioned in the Order Guide.

peterk9 is correct, not a mention of a HUD anywhere. There was a very small chance Ford was holding it back for a later reveal but with the Order Guide and all, that chance dissolved away. With the redesign being as significant as it was, Ford probably held it back so that they'd have something to add in '21 or '22 model year.

Didn't the 5th gen have an HUD?

Never drove one, but I don't believe so. They had a forward warning system that projected a heads up warning signal:

"You can add available options like the BLIS with Cross-Traffic Alert and the Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support. How this system works is when activated, it mirrors traffic in front of you by slowing down when other cars do. If it detects an imminent frontal collision, it initiates a heads-up display with brake lights to help you react quickly. If you don’t react in a quick manner it becomes proactive by pre-charging the brakes to enhance stopping power." Link.​

That is what I must have been thinking of, thank you.
