2020 Ford Explorer Gets New Rich Copper Color: First Look

Ford has launched the next-generation Explorer SUV for the 2020 model year. The all-new Explorer features a new design plus the latest technological innovations. Most notably, the new model switches from a front-wheel drive to rear-wheel drive-based configuration (thanks to the CD6 platform), with all-wheel drive remaining optional.

When compared to the last-gen, 2019 model, the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer adds six new exterior colors to its color palette: Star White, Silver Spruce, Rapid Red, Iconic Silver, Atlas Blue, and Rich Copper. Here’s our first look at the new Rich Copper Metallic Tinted Clearcoat hue.


Assigned order code B6, Rich Copper is one of two tinted clearcoat options available for the 2020 Explorer, with the other being Rapid Red.
