The All-New 2020 Ford Explorer is a Game-Changer

Ford practically invented the mainstream SUV with the introduction of the first Explorer in the early 1990s. Since then, the Explorer has been a top-selling SUV offering owners real-world utility along with off-road capability. Ford manages to up the ante with each release of the Explorer nameplate and, as expected, the all-new 2020 Explorer comes widely anticipated and has many enthusiasts excited for the future. As the new 2020 Explorers begin to roll into Airport Marina Ford in Los Angeles, let's take a look at how it compares to the current 2019 Explorer.

The 2019 Explorer wraps up a platform introduced in 2011. Other than a mild facelift with the 2016 model, the platform has remained mostly the same for nearly a decade. With that being said, the 2019 Explorer remains one of the most attractive and versatile large SUV options available. The available EcoBoost V6 engine was a major game-changer in the segment offering one of the most powerful yet efficient engine packages on the market. The Ford Sync phone connectivity applications were groundbreaking when introduced and continue to be impressive. While the styling and handling dynamics of the 2019 Explorer are exhibiting some age, the 2019 Explorer is still a big-time player in the large SUV realm.

The 2020 Explorer builds on the elements that define the Explorer name with even more new and innovative features and elements. The platform is centered around an all-new turbo 4-cylinder engine that makes comparable power with huge efficiency gains over the 2019 Explorer. The interior appointments are progressive and responsive to the market with opulent and configurable seating, advanced Sync software with an impressive 11-inch touchscreen infotainment system, and adaptable suspension that can be set for various drive conditions. New to the lineup is the ST trim level that provides sleek and sporty styling with enhanced street performance.

While the 2019 Explorer is still a king of the urban jungle, the 2020 Explorer is a glimpse into the future of SUV design and engineering. You can see both models in person at Airport Marina Ford in Los Angeles, CA. We look forward to seeing you soon!
