This is a prototype for the upcoming rugged Ford Explorer variant, the FX4.
The Explorer FX4 will follow in the footsteps of the Expedition FX4. The prototype sports camo on the front and rear fascias, though there are a few characteristics that are clearly visible. This includes a set of aggressive rubber with black wheels. Additionally, it would appear that the front and rear bumpers have better approach and departure angles. Meanwhile, plastic fender flares and lower bodyside molding offer some protection when the crossover hits the trails.
Expect an official debut by the first quarter of 2021.
