Introducing the All-New 2020 Ford Explorer

Built for the next adventure
The SUV that started it all has been totally redesigned— inside, outside and under the hood. Its silhouette features an athletic stance with sculpted angular lines, and a revamped grille. Open its doors and you’ll find a stylish, super-comfortable interior with improved cargo capacity and a host of smart technologies designed to make every drive more enjoyable.

Towing power
The new Explorer is engineered for big adventures. In fact, it can tow 5,000 pounds*, when equipped with a Class III Trailer Tow Package.

Introducing the new Explorer ST
The athletic look of Explorer ST is more than sheet metal-deep.  It's matched by a powerful 300hp engine, a sport-tuned suspension and driving dynamics engineered by the Ford Performance team. The Explorer ST rounds out its' ready-for-anything stance with available 21-inch high gloss black aluminum wheels and red painted calipers. Inside, the Explorer ST stays true to its performance roots featuring sport bucket seats with leather micro-perforated surfaces and City Silver accent stitching and ST logo.

Confidence-driving technology
In an increasingly crowded and stressful world, we can all use more confidence on the road. Introducing available features to help keep you covered, from the driveway to the highway.

Just as thrilling inside
Love every minute of the drive in a comfort-minded interior featuring plenty of extras. From the standard tri-zone electronic automatic temperature control and available E-Z Entry 2nd-row captain’s chairs to enhanced color instrument panels, the dialed-up craftsmanship will leave you looking forward to the journey as much as the destination.

Available 12.3-inch digital instrument panel cluster with productivity screen
A new way to look at the function of your dash. With a 12.3-inch customizable cluster, standard on Platinum, Explorer lets you configure the look and function of your driving information.

The 2020 Explorer is coming soon to Brighton Ford, your favorite Michigan Ford dealer!
