2020 Ford Explorer vs 2019 Ford Explorer

Serving Fort Mill, SC

Since the original Ford Explorer debuted in 1991, the landscape of the auto industry has profoundly changed. The Explorer was not the first SUV on the market, but it had incredible popularity and filled a niche with drivers. The 2020 Ford Explorer introduces the model’s sixth generation, and it brings exciting updates compared to the 2019 model. Our Fort Mill Ford team is available to show you the differences between these two midsize crossover SUVs when you connect with us soon.


The 2020 Ford Explorer trim lineup adds two new options. One of these is the Explorer Limited Hybrid, which delivers exceptional combined horsepower with an impressive range. The other new trim is the Explorer ST, which has a 400-horsepower engine. The new Explorer continues to have unibody construction, and it is available with a rear-wheel-drive format. With these changes, you may notice that the 2020 Explorer has improved balance and handling. The 3.0-liter EcoBoost engine combined with a 10-speed automatic transmission carries up from the 2019 model. The Explorer also has a Terrain Management System, available intelligent all-wheel drive, and other desired features in select trims.


The updates to the 2020 Ford Explorer carry throughout the design as well. This crossover SUV continues to show off familial qualities, but it has been retouched from bumper to bumper. This begins at the front end with a reshaped grille. The coloring and pattern of the grille vary by trim. The LED headlights and foglamps have a stretched appearance to magnify the vehicle’s prominence on the road. The rocker panels are powerfully defined, and the sides have a chiseled, athletic look. The hood angles flatly to the rear to ensure superior interior space across all rows and throughout the cargo area. The new Explorer is also dressed up by a liftgate spoiler, quad exhaust tips, and raised roof rails.


The Explorer’s interior has also been redesigned throughout. This 3-row SUV features a large touch display screen that rises dramatically from the center console. A digital driver’s display gauge adds to the high-tech look at the front of the cabin. The Explorer also has a SYNC 3 infotainment system, CoPilot 360 Technology, FordPass Connect, a multi-zone climate control system, USB ports, mounted steering wheel controls, a rearview camera, active parking assistance, and numerous other features.
