The 2020 Ford Explorer was revealed in early January at the Ford Field in Detroit, where Ford announced two exciting new options for its seven-passenger mid-size SUV: the performance-driven ST, and a powerfully efficient Hybrid.

The 2020 Explorer has been fully redesigned for the new decade, and the updates go much deeper than the surface. The Explorer ST will come with a new 3.0-liter EcoBoost® engine, which Ford has claimed produces 400 horsepower and 415 lb-ft of torque.

The ST will reportedly be able to go up to 143 mph, and paired with a 10-speed automatic transmission with standard four-wheel drive and selectable traction control, this SUV is designed to deliver more driving fun than any other vehicle in its class.

The Explorer Hybrid is another exciting addition to Ford’s lineup. This efficiency-focused model produces all the power you need in an SUV at 318 horsepower, and though towing and hauling figures haven’t been announced yet, electrified vehicles historically have exceptional torque.

The Hybrid model will let you travel an incredible 500 miles between stops at the pump, so you can stay on the road longer and spend less money on gas. While many hybrids and other electric cars have bulky batteries taking up cargo space, the Explorer’s battery is located under the second-row seat, so your cargo space is unaffected.

Here at Westland Ford, we can’t wait for the arrival of this new iteration of the Ford Explorer.

Your Car’s Inspiring List of New Year’s Resolutions

The New Year is all about making a fresh start and getting back in touch with what really matters most. As your family’s well-loved Ford vehicle, I have a few New Year’s resolutions of my own. Just like you, I can’t wait to spend more time with the whole family this year, embarking on brand new adventures and having an absolute blast.

Spend more time with family

This year, I’m resolving to spend more time with the whole family. Luckily, Ford makes doing so better than ever, with vehicles like the Ford Explorer and the Ford Edge. It’ll be no problem at all planning plenty of quality time with the family throughout the New Year.

Take on new adventures

It’s easy to get stuck in a rut. That’s what I’m resolving to take on new adventures in the New Year. Ford offers an adventure-ready SUV for every lifestyle, so I’ll have you covered whether you’re taking on a cross-country road trip or simply getting away from it all for a weekend.

Have more fun

Finally, I’ll have more fun in the New Year. Everyday driving can become dull, the morning commute can be a chore, but Ford’s lineup turns every outing into a memorable excursion.

Of course, to get me into top shape for the upcoming year, you may want to bring me in for an inspection at Westland Ford.
