All-New 2020 Ford Explorer – First Look and Details from the 2019 Detroit Auto Show | Edmunds


ELANA SCHERR: Ford just
unveiled a brand new Explorer, and we’ve got all the details. [MUSIC PLAYING] Ford just unveiled
the all new Explorer. And the keyword here is more. More fuel economy, more safety
suites, more things standard, and more family friendly. They’re more different varieties
of Explorer available than ever before, including two
different EcoBoost engines, four out of six. And then we hear maybe a
hybrid, and the Performance ST. We’ll find out
more about those later. In the presentation,
Ford made a big deal about how it really
wants customers to make use of everything
that the new Explorer offers. And that includes technology
like an embedded modem, so that up to 10
different people can be connected to the Wi-Fi. It’s got a big touch
screen in the dash, and it has a very large
digital dash for the driver. So you can adjust
all those things to see whatever information
is important to you, both as the driver
and as the passenger. Plus, everybody in the back
can connect whatever they want so that they’re having fun. Or maybe they could just
look out the windows. That’s also an option. Comfort is also a big
deal and usability. So Ford redesigned
the second row to make it easier to
get into the third row. And as someone who has reviewed
a lot of three row SUVs, that’s important. When Ford says the
Explorer is all new, they really pretty
much mean all new. I mean, it’s a new global
architecture, rear wheel drive, it has new sheet metal, and
a more aggressive styling. And again, more of everything. More tech, more performance,
better fuel, economy better looks. What’s not to like? We’re looking forward to
getting a closer look. For more information on
the new Ford Explorer check back with

lot to talk about. Make sure you follow us

  1. 2019 is gonna be a big year for the midsize 3 row SUVs. With the acception of this new explorer and recently unveiled Palisade , the competition intensifies. Can't wait for Toyota to show the new Highlander.

  2. This is not all new – despite what they say. Minor changes throughout. Get excited about a Hotspot? Come on. And did they put paddles for rear seat headrests? Just bought an SUV, but if someone had told me to wait for the Ford Explorer, I would have been truly disappointed.

  3. I love the explore but the body has got to be sharper than the back that’s on the 2020! I have 2015 and my back looks better than the 2020! What about the sun roof is it that same retraction all the way back like the older models I hope so! I think it should have it’s own hand zac to help the owner keep it clean built in!

  4. The back of the vehicle design do looks cheap! I need something that is sharper than the my 2015. The front looks better but the back looks cheap!

  5. Well Done Ford, This is beautiful Truck that was relevant 5 years ago. Nothing innovative, just more of the same. Stock price reflects the vision, myopic at best.

  6. I disagree! Truly disappointed. I was waiting to see if this would be the one to trade in my 2011 limited for, but sadly, im not impressed. They could have done a much better job with the fugly front end. Side profile still looks great. I like the Aviator redesign much better. Inside and out.

  7. I have a 2013 explorer and I could tell people it"s a 2016 and they would never know. The body style still looks the same r the 7 years or so with very little change.

  8. I am sure, Mark Takahashi did a review of new Ford Explorer first but, either he was being too frank like he did with BMW Z convertible or wasn't getting excited at all
    so, Elena probably walked in and did it again. At the end, if you don't make two middle aged people to get excited, who is going to write the check for this vertical ipad.

  9. I kinda like it, minus the ipad on the dash – that has to be annoying while driving. Everything else look pretty good though.

  10. ….ummm….bless her heart, she got out of the typing pool to be on camera! Edmunds should have a size 5 Soccer Mom review all SUV's ! Oil drilling foremen review heavy duty pickups, get it Edmunds?
