All-new 2024 the Explorer and I’m here. near Portland Oregon at the first drive. event it’s my first opportunity to get. hands-on and show you the new Explorer. it’s also the SD the high-performance. version has the most power and it’s the. quickest one of them all and in this. video I’m going to show you all the. features and what makes it the $60,000. Explorer [Music]. let’s take a quick step back and just. look at the history of the Explorer the. first generation was available in 1991. this for 2020 is now the sixth. generation of the Explorer it has been a. best-selling SUV in its segment over its. history and Ford really needs to get. this one right in order to remain. competitive in an ever more crowded segment. the guys at Ford tell me that styling is. actually one of the most important. attributes for the Explorer so they. completely redesigned it they switched. platforms they went away from the front. wheel base platform of the previous. generation to this rear-wheel drive. biased platform and that allowed them to. stretch the wheelbase use a variety of. engines a 10 speed automatic. transmission but also make the car. longer a little bit more sleek and more. stylish although in the front this is. kind of not my bag let me know what you. think about the styling of the new. Explorer but it’s not all style it’s. also function of course aerodynamics is. a big part of it and there’s an air. inlet here that’s vents inside the wheel. well to keep the air kind of hugging the. crossover a little bit more for better. stability. my first impression on the inside is a. mixed one at first I really liked how. fresh and new this Explorer looks I’m. talking about the new steering wheel. design the dashboard layout the center. console with seats everything but then. there is this vertical tablet which is. the center infotainment screen looks a. little bit odd because it’s a little bit. too vertical for my taste and just kind. of stuck out there but it contains the. latest sync 3 system and it’s really. easy to use this a touchscreen with your. nav your home your audio and all of the latest features. one thing you don’t get for sixty. thousand bucks in the new Explorer SD. are actually struts for the hood you. still get a little handy dandy prop. stick to hold up the HUD but it’s what. underneath that really matters and in. this case it’s the new updated 3 litre. twin-turbocharged EcoBoost v6 with a. rating of 400 horsepower and 415. pound-feet of torque this is the most. powerful engine option you can get. currently in 2020 for the Explorer it’s. made it to 10 speed automatic. transmission and all STS are. all-wheel-drive and fuel economy is not. yet available. for this particular model here are some. steps on the Explorer st 5.5 seconds. here 260 according to 4th the quickest. st ever built. 143 mile an hour top speed and by the. way that acceleration time is quicker. than a dodge durango RT which is 6.2. seconds if you remember the Ford Focus. ST that acceleration was 5.9 of course. this T model is not just about the. engine it’s also about the suspension. and the handling of the overall SUV and. for 2019 the previous gen had the sport. model which was very popular that model. is no longer available for 2020 but the. st takes its place and according to for. that takes the performance to the next. level. look at these puppies on this Explorer. ST these are optional 21 inch wheels and. they’re wrapped in Pirelli scorpion. tires this is a high performance. all-season tire ford says later on a. michelin summer only tire will also be. available on the st for a little bit. more performance you’re also getting a. high performance brake package here on. the SD with red calipers which tells. other people there’s something special underneath. there’s a total of four engine options. and then you explore it all starts with. a 2.3 liter updated straight-4. turbocharged engine with 300 horsepower. then you can step up to a three liter. twin turbo v6 turbocharged engine with. 365 horsepower of course this is the SD. with 400 horsepower version of that. engine there’s also a brand new hybrid. which uses a 3.3 liter naturally. aspirated v6 and an electric motor for. combined 318 horsepower but that is a. whole lot of story I’ll do a separate. video on the hybrid when the new Lincoln. Navigator came on the scene a couple. years ago introduced a new way to. control your drive modes with high. quality graphics and they’re now here in. the 20/20 Explorer so currently I’m in. the normal mode and it gives you kind of. a feeling of what you’re doing when you. switch between them. Green for eco sport for high performance. especially in the st of course there’s also towing. boom I guess it’s all about gears but. there is also an off-road mode there’s. one for slippery conditions in the. winter one for trail running of course. deep snow and sand in this high. performance SD version the intelligent. four-wheel-drive system is performance. biased it can transfer up to a hundred. percent of torque to the rear axle or. split it 50/50 front to rear there is no. locking center differential there is a. clutch pack basically that adjusts. torque front and back of course there is. an electric parking brake here but you. might be wondering what is this hand. symbol and why is it trying to wave to. us well this is a button for auto hold. when you’re on a hill when the system is. enabled it’ll prevent the vehicle from. rolling backwards for example when. you’re starting up a steep hill this. model also comes with hill descent. control right here this is not crawl. control but it will help you descend a. hill at very low speed there’s a way to. access the 360-degree camera pointing forward in this case. if you’re in the reverse same thing. happens in their udders although I do. wish that the real-estate for the camera. view was actually larger and a little. bit more high definition you could also. line up your trailer using the rear guidelines. I’m just over 62 and I’m sitting behind. myself I have pretty good decent legroom. although legroom didn’t change much from. the previous generation Explorer. headroom didn’t change much either. although the roof is more sloping but if. I do stretch out I start touching the. roof yes it does have a gigantic. panoramic roof if you are a little bit. less than 6 – or a kid this would be a. perfect place to be especially in these. captains chairs with arm rests and. actually a passageway here to get to the. third row I need to get back there okay. getting back in the third row there’s. just a smidge more legroom here than in. the previous Explorer but it’s really. for smaller people because my knees are. way up high although I have pretty. decent Headroom I wouldn’t want to spend. a lot of time back here new Explorer is. right at to toe up to 50 600 pounds when. you get the three liter v6 turbocharged. engine and when I first heard that the. Explorer is switching to a rear-wheel. drive platform I thought it’s gonna be. capable of towing a lot more but what. fourth tells me is that fifty six. hundred pounds is actually really. competitive in the class and this is. what customers in this segment require. if you want to tow more there is always. the Ford Expedition when you get the. towing package yes you still get your. seven pin and the four pin trailer. connectors but you do not get an. integrated trailer brake controller. although an aftermarket one will fit. quite nicely. this three row family crossover segment. is getting more and more competitive by. the minute of course the Explorer. competes against the likes of the Toyota. Highlander the Honda Pilot but now it’s. rear-wheel drive so it’s also competes. against the Dodge Durango which can. actually tow a lot more than this. Explorer right here of course there’s. many other competitors from GM also Kia and so this happened to me I walked up to. the back of the Explorer and I was. looking for the hatch release here but. there’s actually a little arrow that. points to it you just push the button. boom the hatch is open. now what about cargo capacity well. behind the third row the cargo volume. actually decreased slightly from 21 in. the previous Explorer to 18 point 2 in. this current 2020 model but of course. you can fault. the third throw down to reveal more. space actually behind the second row. the cargo space is over 47 cubic feet. now. and if you fold the second row of seats. the total cargo volume is now eighty. seven point eight cubic feet which is. about six cubic feet more than before there is no question about it the new. 2020 Explorer is moving upmarket. eventually there will be a base Explorer. that starts at about four hundred. dollars more than the outgoing model. alright that’s around $33,000 okay. the XLT starts at almost thirty seven. thousand dollars for a rear-wheel drive. Explorer then you can move up to a. limited at about forty eight thousand. VSD starts at about fifty four this one. is almost sixty thousand and of course. there’s a platinum at the very top of. the luxury segment for the Explorer and. that starts at 58,000 so this thing is encroaching on the premium SUV segment. so you’re getting a slightly bigger. interior space for passengers you’re. getting way more power you’re getting. way more technology and safety features. but you are also paying a lot more for. the new Explorer and go back to TfL car. come from a news views and real world. car reviews and you will see a lot more on the 20/20 for the Explorer on our. on the 20/20 for the Explorer on our channel very soon.
