The 2020 Ford Explorer will be unveiled in Detroit tonight and the Blue Oval has been kind enough to set up a live stream of the event, allowing Ford fans from all over the world to watch the debut of the all-new mid-size SUV by tuning in at this link at 7:00 PM ET or 4:00 PM PST.
The 2020 Ford Explorer is expected to adopt the same rear-wheel drive platform that serves in the new 2020 Lincoln Aviator. Rear-wheel drive is expected to be standard in the next-generation SUV, with all-wheel drive available at extra cost.
As far as powertrains go, a selection of turbocharged engines should be on offer and Ford is said to have a fuel efficient hybrid model on the cards as well. A performance-focused ST has also been rumored.
Additionally, Ford will be hoping new technology, such as the latest version of Sync 3 infotainment and an available suite of active safety tech from Ford Co-Pilot360, will also entice buyers to the new Explorer.
Spy shots of prototypes for the SUV have revealed major portions of the 2020 Explorer’s styling. It’s expected to look quite similar to the current version of the SUV, with the same narrow greenhouse and “invisible” d-pillar, but with an altogether more athletic and chiseled look.
Ford Authority spies have also caught a glimpse of the interior as well, revealing a square infotainment screen, rotary dial gear selector, electronic parking brake, digital dash display and some other interesting features.
We also got a good look at the 2020 Explorer’s styling when Ford showed off its new Police Interceptor Utility SUV last week. The police patrol vehicle, which is based on the 2020 Explorer, is available with three powertrains: an entry-level 3.3-liter naturally aspirated V6, a 3.3-liter V6 hybrid and a range-topping 3.0-liter EcoBoost V6.
