Built for Life’s Adventures

The all-new 2020 Explorer has been completely redesigned — inside, outside and under the hood. In addition to new capability enhancing features, there are also two new available trims. Explorer now offers a commanding, no-compromise hybrid* as well as the most powerful Explorer to date, the all-new Explorer ST. With 400 horsepower, 415 lb.-ft. of torque an ST brings the adventure to you.**

*Available hybrid option on Explorer Limited

**Horsepower and torque ratings based on premium fuel per SAEJ1349 standard. Your results may vary.

Loaded with confidence

Once you’re inside the completely redesigned Explorer, you’ll notice an array of available amenities. Interior attributes like tri-diamond perforated leather seating surfaces, a hexagon carbon-fibre-lined dash and a precision-engineered centre console with a rotary gear shift dial fill the cabin with a refined and dignified look.

Available third-row PowerFold seats make it easy to accommodate both passengers and cargo. With the seats up, the Explorer can carry up to seven passengers. When you don’t need seating for seven, fold them down and make room for cargo.

The largest ever twin-panel moonroof offers great views for the first-and second-row.

All-New Hybrid and All-New ST

As part of the redesign, Explorer now offers an all-new hybrid and all-new ST. The athletic look of Explorer ST is more than sheet metal-deep. It’s matched by a powerful 400-hp11 engine, a sport-tuned suspension and driving dynamics engineered by the Ford Performance team. The Explorer Limited packs a similar punch; it has a no-compromise available hybrid option that’s engineered for big adventures. Not only can it tow 5,000 pounds but it’s also fully off-road capable.
