A Range of Upgrades Help the 2020 Ford Explorer Deliver a Dynamic and Improved Experience

For many drivers in Flemingsburg and Grayson, KY, the Ford Explorer is what they mean when they "SUV." More than just one of the most popular models in its segment, the Ford Explorer has served as a long-time bar-raiser for the entire SUV market. When SUVs were still new, the Ford Explorer paved the way showing drivers everything they could offer and do.

That's something modern models like the 2020 Ford Explorer continue to do today. Whether you're looking for a family-friendly SUV with plenty of space and seating, or need a versatile vehicle with the disposition to tackle any situation, the Explorer can be what you need.

What's New for 2020?

It'd be easier to point out what isn't new. The 2020 Ford Explorer delivers a vehicle package that's almost entirely new. While it retains the recognizable looks of its predecessors, its chassis utilizes an advanced unibody design that's complemented by powerful trims and engine options. These include the new ST trim, designed for high performance. Drivers looking for a more efficient take on the Explorer will also appreciate the all-new Explorer hybrid trim. A wealth of new features build on this, adding up to one of the most robust SUV experiences available in Mount Sterling, KY.

Power and Performance

The 2020 Ford Explorer offers four distinct engine options, and every last one of them is great.

For its base engine, it utilizes a 2.3-liter turbocharged inline-4. The same powertrain used by the new Ford Ranger trucks, it offers an impressive 300 horsepower and 310 pounds-feet of torque. Drivers looking for more, meanwhile, will find plenty of power waiting in its optional 3.0-liter twin-turbo V6 engines. It offers two.

The first, which comes available in Platinum trim Explorers, can provide up to 365 horsepower with 380 pounds-feet of torque. If that's not enough, the twin-turbo V6 in the performance-centric ST trim can provide up to 400 horsepower with 415 pounds-feet of torque.

And if efficiency is what you're looking for? Check out the Explorer's new hybrid V6. It delivers a better standard of fuel economy without any cost in terms of muscle. You'll still get to enjoy an impressive 318 horsepower with 322 pounds-feet of torque.

Safety and Driver Assistance

The 2020 Explorer can come equipped with a variety of advanced safety options to keep you protected on the Maysville, KY roads. These include active technology like blind-spot alerts, a lane departure warning system, and collision alerts. You can even enjoy the benefits of new driver attention warnings. This system monitors you, making sure your eyes stay on the road.

Features and Technology

Even if you can only invest in the Explorer's standard package, you'll enjoy the perks of a variety of valuable features. Its standard equipment includes a power liftgate, dual-zone climate control, and the Sync infotainment system with Apple CarPlay/Android Auto. Ford's Co-Pilot 360 active safety suite also comes standard.

Drivers who want more than its standard features provide will find additional options like leather trim, all-wheel drive, and a slew of performance-focused features available. These features spread out across a variety of valuable trims. These include:

  • Ford Explorer XLT: The base model offers a turbocharged inline-4 and the 2020 Explorer's standard feature package.
  • Ford Explorer Limited: The Limited trim offers a selection of feature upgrades designed to flesh out the base package in the XLT.
  • Ford Explorer ST: This performance-focused trim offers the Explorer's most powerful engine and dynamic driving experience.
