The brand new 2020 Explorer returns with a ton of new features both inside and out.  A new front and rear look with some exterior features that will help provide that beautiful aerodynamic profile on the road.  This year’s edition delivers rear-wheel-drive architecture (4WD in the Platinum trim) as well as an all-new EcoBoost engine lineup that’s harnessed by a 10-speed transmission with terrain management. One of the new features to be on the lookout is the seven selectable drive modes (normal, slippery, trail, deep snow & sand, sport, tow & haul and Eco).


The 2020 Ford Explorer rides the road with the distinction of being one of Canada’s best SUVs.  This year’s lineup consists of the XLT, Limited Hybrid, Platinum and an all-new ST model.  While the majority of the Explorers come equipped with a base 2.3 litre turbo-4 that makes 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque there are also the limited Hybrid versions that step up to a 3.3 litre V-6 as part of the modular hybrid 10-speed automatic transmission. Platinum versions will come equipped with a 3.0 litre turbocharged V-6 that makes 365 horsepower and 380 lb-ft. Each model in the Explorer lineup comes with each aforementioned drive modes – Normal, Trail, Sport, Slippery, Tow/Haul, and Eco with Snow and Sand modes added into the four-wheel-drive versions.

Across the board, this year’s edition of the Explorer provides a great ride and feels nicely buttoned-down.  It’s soft to drive but provides a firmness on the road that if you want to push harder into a corner or transition you can.  On the open road, it handles like you would expect and provides the best in its class for a top-notch SUV in the Canadian market.
