For 2020, Ford redesigned its Explorer model and introduced new and newer features. Without further ado, here are the new plus newer features in the 2020 Ford Explorer:

SYNC 3 Ford Explorer?


An 8” multimedia system, the Sync 3, is now on the dashboard and few inches from the steering wheel making it easier for the one behind the wheel to access it. The Sync 3 provides hands-free calling, Sirius XM® Radio and 911 Assist. Two other models, the ST and the Platinum, have a 10” multimedia system instead.

Towing Capacity

In the 2020 Ford Explorer, 12% is a noticeable difference in total towing capacity than what is available in the 2019 version/edition but even the lower trims saw an improvement of about 6% or thereabouts. At 5,600 pounds, the 2020 Ford Explorer tows more weight than the 2019’s which just tows 5,000 pounds.


What do we say about rear-wheel drives (RWD)? They offer greater acceleration at get-go than front-wheel drives (FWD). The 2020 Ford Explorer offers you this greater acceleration because it is a RWD: firm on windswept roads plus sharp and steady when you turn a bend. The steering wheel and braking are also solid.

In-Cabin Storage

To expand space usage & cargo storage capacity, the 2020 Ford Explorer comes with an additional space between the first and the second row.

Mobility & Safety Assistance

The Co-Pilot360™ technology offers a suite of features which gives you authority on all roads while keeping you safe and on the move: Blind Spot Information System (BLIS®) with Cross-Traffic Alert, Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control, Lane-Keeping System, Evasive Steering Assist, Active Park Assist 2.0, Hill Descent Control™ and more.


Same 300hp and a 2.3L EcoBoost inline-four-cylinder which is paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission as used in the Ranger & Mustang, the 2020 Ford Explorer comes with the regular RWD and an optional FWD (Four-Wheel Drive). However, if you upgrade to the Platinum trim, you get an additional 65hp to the base option plus a 3.0L EcoBoost V-6 on a non-optional FWD.
