2020 Explorer

Design

Command the road.

The power and driving dynamics of the all-new 2020 Explorer come wrapped in an eye-catching design that boasts authentic comfort and style. And because it was built for the active lifestyle, you can also expect an interior space that accommodates the kids, the dog, the sports equipment, camping gear and just about anything else you may need on the road to adventure.

Built to make an impression.

The first thing you’ll notice about the 2020 Explorer is its dynamic redesign, including signature headlights with distinctive LED lighting and other strong exterior details. The interior is also crafted with an array of defining attributes. Available Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces, a hexagon carbon-fiber-lined front dash and a precision-engineered center console and rotary gear shift dial set you up for comfort.

Seating when you need it.

Available third-row PowerFold® seats make it easy to accommodate both passengers and cargo. With the seats up, the Explorer can carry up to seven passengers. When you don’t need seating for seven, fold them down and make room for cargo.

E-Z Entry Second Row

Even with a car seat in place, the adaptable E-Z Entry second-row seating makes for easy entrances and exits. There’s no need to get out and help either, your rear seat passengers can navigate their seating arrangement with just the push of a button.

Seats that move to fit you.

Multicontour seats with Active Motion® offer an added dose of comfort to the driver and front passenger. This feature allows you to easily position your seat in order to accommodate your preferences. Additionally, the Active Motion component offers five new massage themes for an isolated back massage that focuses on either the upper back, lower back or the pelvic region. The combination of these amenities help prevent fatigue so you can stay fresh on long drives.

Adaptive LED Lighting

Standard on the Platinum, adaptive headlamps help guide you through the night, adjusting accordingly with your vehicle. When you turn, the lights turn with you, aiding in your visibility around corners and helping you to more quickly react to what’s around the bend. And with LED lighting in the front and rear of every Explorer, you get superior light quality wherever you go.
