For many years the Ford Explorer has been a top choice for families in Vernon and the surrounding areas who need a spacious and capable SUV. The 2020 Ford Explorer is a complete redesign, and with its new looks and features we can tell it'll remain a class leader!

  • Passengers: seating for 6 or 7
  • Drivetrain:  RWD and Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management
  • Trims: Base, XLT, Limited, Hybrid, ST, and Platinum
  • Safety: standard Co-Pilot360™ technologies, evasive steering, and adaptive cruise control
  • Technology: SYNC®3, a 10.1-inch touchscreen, an updated 12.3-inch customizable dash
  • Performance: 3 engines


The Explorer has room for either 6- or 7-passengers. Starting on the Limited trim you'll get leather seats with micro-perforations, and the top Platinum trim has premium leather with diamond stitching. The second-row E-Z Entry seconds were also updated for 2020, there's available PowerFold third-row seats, and the power liftgate is standard. If you want to get a massage while driving, be sure to ask us about the available Active Motion® seats!


Ford made a big change on the 2020 Explorer. Instead of going with a standard FWD setup, they returned to RWD engineering, which used to be more common on SUVS. If you do want more traction for winter driving in Newton and other parts of the state, you can still get Intelligent 4WD and a Terrain Management System™ with drive modes. The modes are normal, trail, one for deeper snow or sand, slippery for spring and winter driving, tow/haul, and even Eco if you are going on longer trips and want to conserve fuel.

We're excited to announce that the redesigned 2020 Ford Explorer has way more standard safety features! In the past you needed to move up the trims and/or get package add-ons, but Ford has seen that drivers really do want these features, and thus they've given the people what they want. With the Co-Pilot360™ package that's standard on all 2020 Explorer trims, you'll have a backup camera, automatic high beams, and a lane-keeping system. The standard package also contains automatic emergency braking and BLIS® with rear cross-traffic alert.

As you go up you can find amenities like evasive steering, an intelligent cruise control system, adaptive headlamps, and more! So no matter the trim you choose, you'll feel that peace of mind as you drive through Sparta.


The 2020 Explorer is incredibly tech-savvy, and the newest amenities help it go up against direct competition and even class-above luxury models. To begin, SYNC®3 with an 8-inch touchscreen and Apple CarPlay™/Android Auto™ are now standard. You can bring your smartphone and vehicle together even more, thanks to the standard FordPass Connect™ and WIFI capabilities.

Move up the trims for power-seating, Ford's touchpad entry so you can safely lock your keys in your Explorer, premium speakers from B&0, and a wireless charging pad so you can leave your cords at home. For convenience, check out the trims that offer park assist technologies so you don't have to worry about messing up a parallel park job in front of your friends.


Some of the biggest 2020 Ford Explorer changes took place under the hood. If you've longed for a larger SUV with hybrid performance, the Explorer can now help you out with the brand-new Hybrid trim. Prefer high-end specs instead? Then check out the ST trim. Just like how the Ford Edge now has an option for better performance, on the Explorer ST you'll get a 3.0L EcoBoost V6 with 400 horsepower, 415 lb-ft torque, and a sport-tuned suspension!

Even on the starting trims you'll feel confident getting a full SUV around town with a 2.3L that has 300 horsepower and 310 lb-ft torque. Towing wise, this new Explorer has stronger specs too. Depending on the trim, you can tow up to 5,300 pounds or 5,600 pounds, and that's quite the uptick from previous years. It'll now be even easier to get a boat out to Lake Hopatcong.


We're excited to have the redesigned 2020 Ford Explorer at our Sussex dealership. With its updated performance, more refined presence, and standard safety features, you're sure to fall in love with this model, whether you've had past ones or are looking to get your first. Fill out the financing application and then visit our dealership for a test drive.
