Fuel Economy & Range Estimates

Fuel efficiency ratings and range estimates of the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid vary between the standard rear-wheel-drive model and those equipped with Intelligent 4WD.

At the peak of efficiency, the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid with RWD returns 27 mpg in the city, 29 on the highway and 28 mpg combined. Packing an 18.0-gallon fuel tank, the 2020 Ford Explorer can travel an estimated range of 500 miles on a single tank of gas.

When equipped with the Intelligent 4WD system, the Explorer Hybrid gets ripped with a whopping 5,000 lbs. of robust towing potential. The 4WD system brings that enhanced capability along with all-condition prowess but it will cost you a decent drop in fuel efficiency. With intelligent 4WD, the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid returns 23 mpg in the city, 26 on the highway and 25mpg combined. That’s a decline of 5 mpg city, 3 mpg highway and 3 mpg combined compared to the RWD-equipped model. Those reduced fuel ratings for the 2020 Explorer Hybrid 4WD translate to a solid driving range of about 450 miles.
