2020 Ford Explorer New Feature Overview

Back with a fresh redesign, the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer starts the best-selling SUV’s sixth generation with a lineup that lives up to its esteemed predecessors. From its sculpted and athletic exterior design to its ultra-spacious expanded cabin, the completely rebuilt model leaves no shortage of updates to discuss. See for yourself what new features you can find on the 2020 Ford Explorer with this overview of the biggest changes made for the model year.

2020 Explorer Cargo and Passenger Space

Ford has been anything but modest about the new Explorer, claiming the model holds the title for best-in-class cargo space. The company hasn’t yet spilled any of the nitty-gritty details regarding that cargo volume, but we do know that the 2020 model maxes out 87.8 cubic feet of space with the second- and third-row seats folded. Crunch some numbers and you’ll find that Ford has tacked on an extra 6.1 cubic feet to the Explorer’s maximum cargo space. Ford also claims the model holds best-in-class titles for second- and third-row headroom.

2020 Explorer Technology Features

Since the debut of the 2019 Explorer, Ford has also updated the Ford Co-Pilot360™ Technology suite structure with a set of five standard features. With the revised suite, the 2020 Explorer’s standard package now gains pre-collision assist with automatic emergency braking, blind spot and cross-traffic monitoring, lane-keep assist, automatic high beams and a rearview camera equipped with a lens washer.

Also now standard on the Explorer is Apple CarPlay and Android Auto, FordPass Connect Wi-Fi capability and the 8-inch Sync®3 touchscreen. Would you like to supersize that? One of the more fascinating tech additions to the Explorer lineup is the available 10.1-inch portrait touchscreen. This dash-mounted, tablet-like display hosts a more user-friendly platform than your typical infotainment system, featuring swipe, pinch-and-zoom and split screen capabilities.

With the 2020 Explorer’s debut, Ford also introduced its new Active Park Assist 2.0 system. On the previous Active Park Assist system, the driver had to operate the accelerator and the brake while the vehicle steered itself into place. With the new available system, you just hold down a button on the center console and the Explorer does the rest.
