When selecting your next vehicle for travels in the Richmond, Mechanicsville, and Ashland areas, you should consider the versatile Ford Explorer. This vehicle boasts ample interior space and performance capabilities. As the 2020 Ford Explorer release date approaches, Richmond Ford Lincoln decided to put together this insightful article to give you an idea of what this model offers, before you schedule a test drive.

In the coming sections, we'll be going over safety and driver-assistance technology, the fuel efficiency, and other performance traits, plus some of the interior stylistic elements.

Ford Explorer Release Date & Performance

The 2020 Ford Explorer, expected to be released sometime in the summer of 2019, brings a wealth of desirable performance specifications to the table.

For example, efficiency is a big part of this SUV's make-up, and you'll be able to drive at least 500 miles between fill ups, according to EPA-estimations.

In addition to eating up miles without having to refuel, the Explorer has plenty of power with up to 5,000 pounds of maximum towing capacity, allowing you to bring a trailer along for the ride. There are also specific packages available like the Class III Trailer Tow Package, which will make hauling any cargo more streamlined.

Safety & Driver Assistance Technology

In addition to providing you with impressive performance specifications, the 2020 Ford Explorer will keep you protected using a range of driver-assistance technology.

For example, the Ford Co-Pilot360™ system is a comprehensive feature that includes a range of specific technology, such as BLISÒ (Blind Spot Information System) with Cross-Traffic Alert. BLISÒ will look out for other vehicles that may be driving in your blind spot as you attempt to switch lanes on a busy highway.

There's also a Lane-Keeping System that will give you an audible warning if your vehicle begins to drift out of its respective lane. Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking (AEB) technology will provide a similar warning if a front-facing collision seems likely.

Lastly, with Adaptive Cruise Control and Forward Collision Warning with Brake Support, your Ford Explorer will maintain your choice of speed and also alert you to a potential collision. If one is detected, the system sets off an alarm and can pre-charge the brakes to help you when you do brake.

2020 Ford Explorer Interior

Ford wants you to move around in style, so the 2020 Ford Explorer interior is flush with attractive and comfortable materials and features.

A few of the more prominent inclusions include:

  • Tri-zone electronic automatic temperature control
  • E-Z Entry 2nd-row captain's chairs
  • Wireless charging pad
  • Rotary gear shift dial

For infotainment purposes, the 10.1-inch portrait touchscreen is a go-to that sports a responsive interface and the ability to access various applications, like music or navigation.
