What's New for the 2020 Ford Explorer?

While many cars are labeled as "fully redesigned" in a model year, it's usually a far stretch. That's not the case with the 2020 Explorer, however, which features an all-new design from the ground up. The 2020 Ford Explorer dazzles with a number of new and notable exterior amenities such as LED lights and chrome accents. Inside, the three-row SUV debuts new technology and an interior with more space than ever. The Explorer comes standard with rear-wheel drive, but all-wheel drive is available. Two additional trims join the lineup this year too, including the sporty ST model and a hybrid edition. With variable seating configurations, the Explorer seats seven or eight occupants. The addition of more safety technology keeps you safe on the road, no matter where you go.
