2020 Ford Explorer Spy Shoot – 2020 Ford Explorer
For the aboriginal time, Ford is alms a amalgam drivetrain in its Explorer SUV.
To an dark eye, the 2020 Ford Explorer doesn’t attending all that altered from its predecessor. Sure, there are sleeker headlights, a added aggressively cone-shaped roofline and sculpted anatomy sides, but there’s annihilation advocate about it. Beneath its skin, however, some big changes took place. Its new, rear-wheel-drive belvedere with a 6-inch best wheelbase, for example, is a big abandonment from its antecedent front-drive architecture.

Under the hood, barter can baddest from three altered agent options. The abject agent is a 2.0-liter turbocharged I4, and for families with a allegation for speed, there’s additionally a 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 with 400 application in the performance-focused ST trim. Those attractive for max ammunition economy, though, will be best absorbed in Ford’s Explorer Amalgam with a bladder-busting active ambit of added than 500 miles.
2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid: Electrified for continued hauls
The 2020 Explorer Amalgam is the aboriginal electrified drivetrain offered by Ford in its accepted midsize SUV. It combines a artlessly aspirated 3.3-liter V6, a 10-speed automated manual and a 35-kilowatt electric motor with a 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion array pack. Absolute achievement punches in at 318 application and 322 pound-feet of torque.
In accepted rear-wheel-drive form, the Explorer Amalgam allotment an EPA-estimated 27 afar per gallon in the burghal and 29 mpg on the highway, accessible the abject four-cylinder’s 21 mpg burghal and 28 mpg highway. Those active in areas area glossy altitude are accepted will be able to advantage all-wheel-drive with a hit to efficiency, bottomward ammunition abridgement to 23 mpg burghal and 26 mpg highway. That said, an EPA-estimated active ambit of added than 450 afar is still no joke, nor is a tow appraisement that betters the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid’s capabilities by 1,500 pounds, for a absolute of 5,000 pounds.
Out in the wild, the amalgam powertrain can get the Explorer (slowly) affective about parking lots and abroad from stops on authentic electric power. Dipping alike a little bit added into the appropriate pedal vibrates the V6 agent to activity to advice get things affective at brisker pace. In the absence Normal drive mode, ability is adequate to boost the SUV about boondocks with amber manual shifts. Toggling to Sport approach — my admired — livens affairs up with bigger burke acknowledgment at tip in, cull throughout the rev ambit and quicker cog swaps.
With a 4,969-pound barrier weight, the Explorer Amalgam is added than 600 pounds heftier than the abject model, and it’s credible from a activating standpoint. The weight makes itself accepted aback axis in for corners and beneath braking, admitting the abeyance does an admirable job befitting anatomy motions in check. Council appearance a acceptable weight and is analytic acknowledging to inputs.
The affability for the adorning brakes, however, needs some work. At the top of the pedal, anchor force is ablaze and doesn’t progressively strengthen aback applying added burden — until you ability a assertive point, that is, area it abruptly bites bottomward hard. This accomplish bland stops challenging.
Heading inside, the Explorer Amalgam is adorable to booty families and their associated stuff. With all hybrids based off the Limited trim akin of the Explorer, there’s a advantageous account of animal comforts accessible to baby occupants, and ambience are congenital from affection materials. In front, it’s ample with adequate acrimonious and cooled covering seats and a acrimonious council wheel, as able-bodied as bags of cubbies and cupholders throughout.
Second-row Explorer cartage additionally adore affluence of amplitude and acrimonious captain’s chairs that cast and accelerate advanced at the advance of a button for accessible admission to the aback row. The third row can board a brace of kids, but adults will not appetite to be aback there for an continued aeon of time.
When it comes to carriage cargo, the Explorer is set up for that, too. Behind the third row, there’s 18.2 cubic anxiety of allowance and 47.9 cubic anxiety at your auctioning afterwards folding the aback seats down. Flipping the additional row bottomward opens up 87.8 cubes — the aforementioned bulk of amplitude begin in non-hybrid Explorers. The amalgam doesn’t ache any amplitude penalties acknowledgment to the liquid-cooled array backpack actuality congenital into the anatomy beneath the second-row seats.
On the tech front, Sync 3 oversees infotainment appearance with an 8-inch touchscreen, anchored navigation, a nice-sounding 12-speaker B&O audio setup, a Wi-Fi hotspot and both Apple CarPlay and Android Auto. Sync isn’t lightning-quick to about-face amid menus, but it’s abrupt abundant and automated to assignment through.
To allegation acute devices, a wireless charging pad additionally comes accepted on the Limited, befitting my buzz appropriately juiced, while anyone abroad benumbed with me can bung into the countless 12-volt, USB-A and USB-C ports brindled throughout the cabin. Heck, there’s alike a 110-volt aperture with a three-prong bung in here.
For safety, every Explorer comes with Ford’s Co-Pilot 360 disciplinarian abetment suite, bundling advanced blow admonishing with automated emergency braking, blind-spot ecology and lane-keep assist. The Hybrid, though, comes accepted with a 360-degree camera and Abetment package, which adds full-speed adaptive cruise control, lane-centering tech, acceleration absolute assurance acceptance and ambiguous council assist.
Building an Explorer Amalgam isn’t too complex. Since Ford is alone alms the amalgam powertrain on the Limited trim, the capital decisions centermost about the drivetrain and a brace of big autogenous niceties. Beginning with the $52,280 abject amount tag, not including $1,195 for destination, I will bounce for the $2,195 all-wheel-drive arrangement to bigger cope with Midwest winters, and I’ll additionally bandy on the $325 roof-rail crossbars for the added adaptability of accustomed actuality on the roof if needed.
All in, my Explorer Amalgam carries a $55,995 amount tag. That’s a tad added big-ticket than the $55,170 rear-wheel-drive analysis car, which accustomed outfitted with an accessible across-the-board roof, but not by much.
Like best things in life, abacus amalgam ability to the 2020 Ford Explorer isn’t free. Stepping into electrification from a Limited archetypal with the abject turbo I4 agent tacks on $4,150. That’s steep, because a analogously able Highlander Amalgam Limited starts at $46,000 with accepted all-wheel-drive. That said, bodies in the bazaar for midsize amalgam SUV with a chiefly ample autogenous arranged to the border with tech and added towing ability could accomplish the Ford account the added cheddar.
