Spy Shots—’20 Ford Explorer Caught With Light Camo


This is the ’20 Ford Explorer, caught testing in light camo just outside of Dearborn, Michigan.

The Explorer will get its first comprehensive redesign in nearly a decade for the ’20 model year. It will ride on the D6 platform that is flexible enough for front-, rear- or all-wheel-drive configurations. There is the possibility the Explorer could even go rear-wheel drive.

What is more likely, however, is a more powerful Explorer ST. Just as the Edge gained an ST model for ’19, the Explorer should do the same with a 2.7L high-output Ecoboost V6, putting out at least as much power as the 335hp variant in the Edge—although a more powerful 3.5L Ecoboost may be likely. The Explorer ST will also add more aggressive styling and tuning.

Expect to see the new Explorer in the coming months.
