2020 Ford Explorer Release Date

With the 2020 Ford Explorer arriving in summer of 2019, you’re probably looking for an inside scoop. How will the performance change? What kinds of amenities can it offer to enhance your Pittsburgh, Wexford, and Butler adventures?

Thankfully, the Baierl Automotive team is here to clue you in on what you can expect in this powerful SUV redesign!

When Does the 2020 Ford Explorer Come out?

The 2020 Ford Explorer is slated for release in the summer of 2019, but even already, it’s starting to turn some heads. With updated styling and a slew of new features, it’s expected to take the Explorer you know and love to a whole new level.

A More Powerful Explorer

If you’re wondering what exactly to expect in the new Ford Explorer, the answer is simple: a whole lot of power. In fact, drivers can now opt for the athletic ST trim. Not only does this level feature a sportier exterior with automatic LED headlamps and a body-color liftgate spoiler, but it also adds a sportier engine option.

The available 3.0L EcoBoost® V6 engine in this trim utilizes twin-turbocharging to churn out the most power possible. You’ll generate 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque, allowing for a top speed of 143 MPH. Speed demons, it would seem that this is the trim for you!

Flex Your Muscles

With a robust engine under the hood, there are plenty of fun ways that you can make use of that power. Those suffering from wanderlust will want a heavy-hauler that can tow campers, ATVs, boats, and more. Fortunately, the all-new rear-wheel drive architecture improves both on- and off-road capability and maximizes towing capacity.

When properly equipped, the Explorer is able to tow up to 5,600 pounds of additional cargo and vehicles. If the mountains are calling for you, that Explorer towing power is ready to answer.

A Unique Hybrid Alternative

When we think hybrid, we’re probably thinking sedans. However, the Explorer adds an all-new hybrid trim to create a unique fuel-sipper of an SUV.

This new Explorer Hybrid earns quite the class distinction: There’s no other SUV in its sector that can tow 5,000 pounds of cargo. While it’s working hard to keep cruising for 500 miles between fill-ups, this hybrid SUV is still fully off-road capable.

Interior Creature Comforts

Admit it: You deserve to spoil yourself, and there’s nothing wrong with that. When you’re looking for new ways to indulge on the road, the 2020 Ford Explorer answers that call, too.

This SUV adds some special technologies to make your ride more fun and more convenient. Those that have a flair for carpool karaoke can rejoice with the B&O® Sound System. This optional audio system packs in 14 speakers and 980 watts of power for a concert-like experience.

If you’re playing your tunes through your phone, the new Explorer makes it easy to stay juiced up. In fact, available wireless charging ensures that your phone’s battery never has to die on the go.
