Command The Road.
The power and driving dynamics of the all-new 2020 Explorer come wrapped in an eye-catching design that boasts authentic comfort and style. And because it was built for the active lifestyle, you can also expect an interior space that accommodates the kids, the dog, the sports equipment, camping gear and just about anything else you may need on the road to adventure.
Built To Make An Impression.
The first thing you'll notice about the 2020 Explorer is its dynamic redesign, including signature headlights with distinctive LED lighting and other strong exterior details. The interior is also crafted with an array of defining attributes. Available Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces, a hexagon carbon-fiber-lined front dash and a precision-engineered center console and rotary gear shift dial set you up for comfort.
Completely redesigned, the ST rounds out its athletic stance with unique ST badging and a bold grille that blends utility with driving performance. Inside, Explorer ST stays true to its performance roots featuring unique leather micro-perforated seating surfaces, City Silver accent stitching and an ST logo. And with the power to match, the ST combines a muscular 3.0L EcoBoost® engine with twin turbos for a powertrain like nothing before it. 400 hp plus 415 lb.-ft. of torque and a top speed of 143 mph make this the most powerful Explorer ever.

Auto High-Beam Headlamps
With Auto High-Beam Headlamps, unlit roads, dark peripheries and other low-visibility situations don't have to catch you off guard.

Automatic Emergency Braking With Pre-Collision Assist (AEB)
This feature scans the road ahead and can alert you to potential collisions with vehicles or pedestrians detected in your path. If an impact becomes imminent and you don't take corrective action, the brakes can apply automatically. But don't worry – they'll only activate if they're needed.

Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control
Not only does Adaptive Cruise Control (ACC) with Stop-and-Go help you keep pace on your journey, it can also slow down your vehicle if the traffic ahead has stopped or slowed. As soon as things clear, you'll resume your set speed. And that's not the only way it levels up your cruise control experience. The added Lane Centering feature even scans lane markings to help you keep your vehicle centered between the lines. With speed sign recognition to go along with it, you'll always be up to date with your position on the road.
Evasive Steering Assist
This available feature can help make it easier to avoid a potential collision if there's a slow or stopped vehicle in your path. It doesn't steer for you, but it can provide extra steering support if the system's warning goes off and you need to maneuver around the vehicle ahead.
Hill Descent Control™
Steep hills are often tricky to navigate. Available Hill Descent Control can help make the situation easier – and anxiety-free – by doing just what its name says. It helps you maintain a set speed when you're driving down an incline, by automatically applying the brake when needed.

New 2020 Ford Explorer - Capability
Do What You Want. And Then Some.
The 2020 Explorer is ready for any adventure, thanks to an array of capability-enhancing features. From all-new RWD and 10-speed transmission to the 3.0L EcoBoost® engine and available 4WD with Terrain Management System,™ the Explorer is prepared for the road ahead.
New Rear-Wheel Drive
The 2020 Explorer comes equipped with all-new RWD to maximize performance and design. Rear-wheel-drive architecture enables a sportier, more athletic design, improved on- and off-road capability and 600 pounds more in maximum towing capacity when properly equipped.
Intelligent 4WD With Terrain Management System™
The all-new Terrain Management System can help tackle any adventure with up to seven Selectable Drive Modes through a single easy-to-use dial in the center console. This includes normal, trail, deep snow/sand, slippery, sport, tow/haul and new eco mode that each come with special 3D animated graphics in the new available 12.3-inch digital cluster. And with Intelligent 4WD, there's also the added benefit of enhanced control on your day-to-day commute, especially when conditions are rough.
The new 10-speed transmission makes transitioning between speeds a more efficient process, ensuring smooth upshifts and downshifts. Compared to 6-speed, the 10-speed delivers improved overall performance, with enhanced acceleration at the low and mid ranges of the power band.
Towing And Trailer Sway Control
Building on AdvanceTrac® with Roll Stability Control,™ the standard trailer sway control selectively brakes and adjusts engine power to maintain trailer control.39 The result is stability and control, even when towing large loads. When properly equipped, the Explorer can tow up to 5,600 lbs. The Class III Trailer Tow Package is available with the 2.3L EcoBoost® and 3.3L hybrid engines, and comes standard with the 3.0L EcoBoost engine.
Post-Collision Braking, standard on all series, can potentially lessen the severity of a secondary collision by automatically applying moderate brake pressure when an initial collision is detected in an attempt to slow down the vehicle and potentially lessen injury to occupants and damage to the vehicle.
Available Reverse Brake Assist
With increasing audio and visual warnings, reverse brake assist helps alert you to any objects you may be missing while slowly backing up. The system can detect both stationary and moving objects, including people and vehicles behind the SUV, and can even apply the brakes to help prevent a collision.
Sidewind stabilization can help counteract heavy wind conditions, helping stabilize the vehicle in situations where you are likely to encounter heavy gusts of wind. This system keeps you from having to fight the wind and put in extra effort when overtaking large trucks, crossing a bridge or simply driving on the open road.
As the backbone of the ST and Platinum powertrains, the available 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine takes the athletic feel of Explorer a step further. With a 10-speed automatic transmission, twin turbos and direct injection, the Platinum powertrain generates 365 horsepower plus 380 lb.-ft of torque. The ST takes this muscular engine with twin turbos and combines it with a 10-speed automatic transmission for a powertrain like nothing before it. With 400 horsepower plus 415 lb.-ft. of torque and a top speed of 143 mph, the 2020 ST is the most powerful Explorer ever.
