Here at Paul Cerame Ford, we are excited to show customers the completely redesigned 2020 Ford Explorer. The four-door hatchback SUV boasts better handling and towing capacity due to the introduction of rear-wheel drive. The 2020 model will also come in two new trim packages including a hybrid model.


Rear-wheel drive technology improves the off-road capabilities of the 2020 Ford Explorer and increases towing capacity to as much as 5600 pounds. Ford offers four engine choices including a 400 horsepower V6 and a hybrid 3.3-liter V6 with a 44 horsepower electric motor. The hybrid has a towing capacity of 5000 pounds.

All of the engine options are supported by the 10-speed automatic transmission jointly developed between Ford and GM. The 2020 Ford Explorer ST is the high-performance model. Its 3.0-liter V6 engine produces 400 horsepower and 450 pound-feet of torque. Estimated performance metrics include 0-60 in five seconds and 0-100 in 13.3 seconds.


Available technology packages for the 2020 Ford Explorer cover everything from connectivity to towing. In partnership with Amazon, Ford offers an in-vehicle connection to Alexa for navigation, shopping, and access to your Alexa at home. Access your Waze app from the automobile’s touchscreen.

Ford’s Terrain Management System provides variable management of four-wheel drive with the touch of a dial. Select one the of seven drive modes from trail and deep snow to sport or even the new eco mode. The drive management system is useful both off-road and on the streets of Florissant, MO.

The Class III Trailer Tow package includes AdvancedTrac and Roll Stability Control. The system automatically applies the brakes or adjusts the engine power to steady even the largest towing loads. The package also includes a trailer hitch and connectors.
