Generations

The 2020 Ford Explorer returns completely overhauled. Now sitting on a rear-wheel-drive platform with available all-wheel drive, the Explorer supplies four engine choices and a roster of comfort and safety upgrades like standard second-row captain's chairs. The lineup expands with the first-ever hybrid variant, while the ST model replaces the previous Sport trim. Buyers should prepare for sticker shock too, as even a base XLT trim with four-wheel drive costs about $40,000.
