Redesigned 2020 Ford Explorer Gets Overhauled From the Ground Up

2020 Ford Explorer Summit NJ

Even though the North American International Auto Show isn’t until next week, the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer has been revealed! Popular among Central New Jersey drivers, this SUV receives a significant update as we enter the next decade.

The redesigned Explorer combines a more powerful & efficient EcoBoost engine lineup, enhanced performance under the hood on & off the road and additional standard & available amenities designed for your comfort, convenience & safety. Not to mention a new more athletic look & feel.

Though some of this SUV’s longtime traits are retained like the blacked-out A-pillars & D-pillars and body-colored C-pillars, it looks a lot different than its predecessor. Between 7 unique wheel designs, a more sloping roofline and shorter front overhang, you'll enjoy the Explorer's sportier look.

The 2020 Ford Explorer Platinum ups the ante in the appearance department with the following upgrades:

  • Twin-panel moonroof to bring even more light inside the cabin
  • Special leather seats, steering wheel, dashboard, door rollovers and door & front console armrests
  • Door handles with a satin aluminum insert
  • Liftgate appliqué
  • Lower bodyside cladding insert
  • Roof-rack side rails
  • Unique grille with a satin aluminum finish

Enhanced Performance

Every 2020 Ford Explorer coming to our Union County NJ dealership location comes with a more powerful EcoBoost engine that provides added efficiency thanks to all-new 10-speed automatic transmission with SelectShift capability. A 300-hp 2.3L EcoBoost 4-cylinder engine comes in the base, XLT & Limited models, while the Platinum trim offers a 365-hp 3.0L EcoBoost V6.

Whether you use your Explorer for the day-to-day or like to take off-road trips camping or the beach? Then, you’ll be impressed by the available intelligent 4WD system that offers an optional new Terrain Management System with 7 driving modes for all situations including:

  • Normal for everyday driving
  • Sport for superior handling & control
  • Eco for maximum fuel efficiency
  • Tow/haul to make the most of bringing cargo along for the ride with the improved towing capacity of up to 5,600 lbs
  • Slippery for driving on ice, water, grass and thin layers of gravel & sand
  • Deep snow/sand for more traction when driving on even less stable ground
  • Trail to handle ideally in muddy, rutted, soft & uneven terrains

The superior performance is not just in terms of driving. In addition to to offering best-in-class hip room & the 1st & 2nd rows and unsurpassed headroom in the 2nd & 3rd rows, you now get up 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space inside thanks to the optional PowerFold 3rd-row seats & new E-Z entry 2nd-row seats. This fold-flat room is superior to that offers in popular models like:

  • Jeep Grand Cherokee
  • GMC Acadia
  • Mazda CX-9
  • Dodge Durango
  • Nissan Pathfinder
  • Toyota Highlander
  • Subaru Ascent

That means families of all sizes and activity interests will be accommodated by the 2020 Explorer. This Ford includes redesigned ISOFIX anchor points for child seat installation anywhere in the 2nd & 3rd rows, so even the smallest of passengers will be safe and comfortable inside.
