It's been some time since the Ford Explorer last saw a substantial overhaul, but it seems the time has come. The midsize SUV will be a completely new vehicle for the 2020 model year. A new chassis, redesigned body, new powertrain options, and more are sure to make for an exciting new option among Ford SUVs in the Waterford, PA area.

The redesign is made clear by an all-new exterior look. A new grille shape and slimmer headlamps set the 2020 Explorer apart. New colors and appearance packages will likewise be available. Underneath, however, the changes are even more substantial.

One of the most significant changes coming with the 2020 Explorer is its return to a rear-wheel drive layout. For several years, the Explorer has relied primarily on front-wheel drive. This shift to rear-wheel drive signals a renewed focus on pleasing enthusiasts around North East Pennsylvania. Of course, four-wheel drive will also be available.

There will be more performance options in the 2020 Explorer, as well. The new Explorer Hybrid model allows for up to 5,000 pounds of towing and estimated fuel range of up to 500 miles. Additionally, a new Explorer ST model will offer a 400-horsepower engine and a chassis tuned for handling and cornering.

The changes continue inside the cabin. You'll still get a three-row design with space for up to seven passengers, but modernized features like an available 10.1-inch portrait display enhance the experience.

Ford will begin delivery of 2020 Explorer SUVs to dealers near Erie and Fairview, PA later this year. We can help you order yours here at Champions Ford, so come visit us soon.
