What’s in Store For the New 2020 Ford Explorer?

Redesigned from head to tail, the 2020 Ford Explorer is back with several new features and beefed up capabilities. The new high-performance ST and exceptionally efficient Explorer Hybrid trim levels are additions available to Wells, ME shoppers for the 2020 model year.

Enhanced Performance and Capability

Among the major changes Rochester, NH shoppers will note between this year’s Ford Explorer and last year’s are the more powerful drivetrain and increased towing capacity. Standard on the 2020 Explorer is a 300-horsepower 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine, which represents a 20-horsepower increase over the 2019 model. The available 365-horsepower V6 engine has an impressive output of 380 pound-feet of torque, 30 pound-feet more than last year.

When combined with the available Class III Trailer Tow package, the updated engines can tow more than previous models. The 2.3-liter engine is rated for a maximum of 5,300 pounds, while the V6 has a capacity of 5,600 pounds. The reintroduction of the rear-wheel-drive configuration improves off-road capabilities for Dover, NH drivers.

Increased Space

The 2020 Ford Explorer is also more spacious than last year's iteration. This year, York, ME drivers get 87.8 cubic feet of storage space when the seats are folded down, and there is also ample room for up to seven passengers with class-leading headroom in the first and second row seats.

More Confidence with Ford Co-Pilot360™ Safety
