2020 Ford Explorer Slated for Jan. 9th Debut

Ford Motor Company will pull the cover off its all-new 2020 Ford Explorer on January 9th in Detroit. The reveal will take place at Ford Field one week ahead of the Detroit Auto Show.

Like the recently revealed 2020 Lincoln Aviator, the 2020 Explorer will be based on a new rear-wheel-drive architecture. The new architecture will mark the first rear-wheel-drive based Explorer since the fourth-generation ended production back in 2010.

While Ford has been mum on official details of the new SUV, some information has leaked out over the past few months due to the Police Interceptor model that will accompany the new Explorer. Details, such as the fact the Explorer will leverage Ford’s 3.3-liter V-6 engine, as well as an EcoBoost 3.0-liter V-6.

From a design perspective, spy shots over the last few months have been oddly revealing. The shots have showcased an Explorer that isn’t dramatically different from today’s version; albeit a bit boxier to seize on the SUV trend.

After Explorer’s off-site reveal on the 9th, expect to find it on display in the Ford booth at the Detroit Auto Show the following week.

    This should make it better to handle more power and 4WD issues.

    Wonder of the ST will get the 450 hp 3.5TT? Sort of a middle class Range Rover Sport SVR ... at least in performance.


    That should be the case...just hope it turns into reality.

    I am interested to see which engines it will receive. It is suppose to have a hybrid, but not the same liter as the Aviator.
