Ford Announces Driving Range of the Explorer Hybrid

2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid

The Ford Explorer has long been a rugged, family-friendly SUV. Now, for the 2020 model it is both moving forward and looking back. The Explorer will be available as a hybrid model, while also coming standard with rear-wheel drive for the first time in years.

One of the major benefits of the new available hybrid model is its extended driving range. The range of the Explorer Hybrid, when equipped with rear-wheel drive, is over 500 miles, as estimated by the EPA. If you choose the available four-wheel drive system, you should be able to drive more than 450 miles between fill-ups.

“Explorer is the ultimate family adventure vehicle — and fewer pit stops is one of the latest reasons why,” said Bill Gubing, Explorer chief engineer. “Explorer provides space for the whole family and their gear, it’s got great towing capability, and now it has range like no Explorer before.”

Powering the Explorer Hybrid is a 3.3-liter hybrid engine and a 10-speed modular hybrid transmission. Even with its hybrid engine, the Explorer is still powerful. It boasts a maximum tow rating of 5,000 pounds, which is the same as a 2019 Explorer with a 3.5-liter engine.

Families won’t have to worry about hampering their cargo space either. Unlike older hybrid models where the battery pack ate up cargo space, the battery in the Explorer Hybrid is built under the second row, so you get as much cargo space as all the other Explorer models.

The Ford Explorer Hybrid’s advanced powertrain and clever packaging allow you to take advantage of all the benefits of a hybrid without sacrificing space and utility. Check it out at Sanderson Ford!


Introducing the 2020 Ford Explorer

The Ford Explorer has long maintained a spot in the hearts and minds of American SUV shoppers, and that spot is getting bigger. The all-new 2020 Ford Explorer has been revealed, and it isn’t just the most stylish Explorer made to date, but with a lineup that now consists of the Explorer Limited Hybrid and ST performance variant, it’s the most versatile.


Nearly everything about the 2020 Ford Explorer has been updated, improved, or enhanced, starting with the performance. A new twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter EcoBoost® V6 makes the new Explorer the most powerful yet, delivering up to 5,600 pounds of towing capacity when properly equipped. With the standard 2.3-liter EcoBoost®, you get 300 horsepower right out of the box and up to 5,300 pounds of max towing capacity when equipped with the available Class IIII Trailer Tow Package.


The 2020 Ford Explorer is also equipped with more standard features than ever. Each model now comes with a convenient power liftgate, an intuitive, 8-inch touch screen with SYNC® 3, and FordPass Connect™ Wi-Fi that can connect up to 10 devices to high-speed internet.


Safety is also standard in the new 2020 Ford Explorer, which is equipped with the Ford Co-Pilot360™ suite of driver-assist features. This standard package includes Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking, a Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert, and a Lane-Keeping System.


The 2020 Ford Explorer will be available at Sanderson Ford beginning this summer. Stay tuned for more information closer to launch.
