Rumors are meant to be ignored. The Key West Ford team knows this - with all fiber of our beings, with every thought in our minds. Nothing good comes from idle speculation.
Could the 2020 Explorer, though, possibly be the exception?
According to CarBuzz, official specs for the new Explorer remain scarce - but the few hints released from Ford prove too tantalizing to ignore. This platform is rumored to boast three new engines: a turbocharged 2.3L four-cylinder, a 3.3L V6, and a 3.0L V6. Performance ratios are unknown, but critics anticipate that they’ll exceed the current numbers (365 HP and 350 lb.-ft of torque); and the inclusion of both rear- and all-wheel drivetrains will ensure crisp capability. A 10-speed automatic transmission should anchor each chassis (replacing the current six-gear option); and recent spy-shots have revealed a revised interior, with an enlarged digital console framing the instrument panel.
Most exciting, however, is the inclusion of hybrid technology. Critics believe that the 2020 Explorer will offer a lithium-ion battery system - supplementing traditional performance with EcoBoost efficiency. This should enhance economy by more than 10% and allow the platform to push past its competitors at the pump.
We’re excited - aren’t you?

Size truly does matter within the crossover market. The less is more mentality has been long since abandoned, and drivers demand an excess of volume with every mile.
Ford is eager to oblige them - fusing its 2018 Explorer with an award-winning cabin.
Recently the critics at Kelley Blue Book sought to find the ultimate crossover option - comparing wheelbases and cabin widths alike. Their search eventually led them to the 2018 Ford Explorer and the 2018 GMC Acadia, two seven-passenger platforms that promise exceptional space. The KBB team slid themselves between each seat, calculating inches and totaling volume; and the result… was as expected.
The Explorer’s extended wheelbase (112.6 inches) dwarfs the Acadia, delivering a capacious cabin that accommodates seven riders with ease. The tri-row configuration yields 42.9-inches, 39.5-inches, and 33.3-inches of legroom, respectively; and the 151.7 cu.-ft of passenger volume ensures premium comfort. Families can effortlessly sprawl in this leather-lined beast.

It’s a massive trailer - stuffed with boxes and bags, piled high with every off-road necessity. You’ve planned the ultimate springtime escape; and each of these items will help you achieve seasonal fun. As you glance to the quivering hitch of your crossover, however, you worry that this payload is too great.
Ford suggests seeking a car that can accommodate it - like the 2018 Explorer.
As The Chronicle Herald explains, the new Explorer proves ready for every adventure - delivering class-leading trailering with each mile. Boasting a 3.5L Ti-VCT V6, this crossover generates 290 HP (at 6,500 RPM) and 255 lb.-ft of torque (at 4,000 RPM). Its six-speed SelectShift automatic transmission yields a mid-range gear seat, effortlessly accommodating heavy payloads with custom power-band responses; while natural aspiration promotes improved air intake and optimal fuel distribution, allowing the engine to maintain its ignition with ease.
These elements combine to ensure superior towing capabilities - with the 2018 Explorer yielding up to 5,000 pounds of conventional hauling and 1,717 payload pounds. A Class III hitch ensures effortless trailer connectivity, and integrated Sway Control technology delivers gyroscopic balance (keeping all cargo secure on tight turns).
The new Explorer enables drivers to embrace their springtime thrills - without fearing the weight of a trailer. To learn more about this crossover contact our team today!
Crossovers reign supreme on the North American charts. These big-wheeled behemoths accommodate families and adventurers with equal ease; and their emphasis on everyday comfort makes them ideal for any expedition.
It’s no surprise, therefore, that the 2018 Explorer delivered massive chart performance last year - dominating both December and 2017 itself.
According to the NWI Times, the 2018 Explorer was among Ford’s biggest selling platforms. In December this SUV delivered a staggering 33.3% growth, generating 23,375 total unit sales. This launched the Big Blue Oval to a 10.1% year-to-year increase, and it also helped to ensure an overall chart victory.
For the eighth year in a row Ford ruled the North American market - boasting a total sales yield of 2,475,556. This number - which no other brand was able to even approach - showcases the importance of the crossover segment, with critics noting that the Explorer and its all-wheel brethren generated a 3.7% increase overall. While coupes and hot hatches failed to ignite the charts, these platforms excelled.
The Key West team knows why. The 2018 Explorer proves a perfect combination of power and performance. Anchored by a 3.5L EcoBoost engine, this platform yields up to 365 HP. Its best-in-class towing capacity (5,000) is achieved through Intelligent AWD and intuitive trailer sway control technology; while its Terrain Management System allows it to navigate even the toughest roads with ease.
Ford’s signature Explorer conquered the charts last year. To see why contact our team today!
Luxury no longer demands a compromise of power - with Ford ensuring that its 2017 Explorer Platinum impresses on every terrain. This SUV has been engineered for far more than sophistication, embracing an off-road sensibility with every mile.
According to Top Speed, the 2017 Explorer Platinum proves that appearances can be deceiving. Though tailored for the upscale market - utilizing premium leather panels and chrome accents - this SUV is an absolute beast on the road. Bolstered by a 3.5L EcoBoost V6, it can accommodate loads of up to 5,000 pounds. Integrated Trailer Sway Control creates a smooth ride, while seven-pin wiring connections ensure seamless hook-ups. The extended 112.8-inch wheelbase is mated to both an AWD and a six-speed automatic transmission, allowing it to rev through every incline with ease; and mounted roof rails provide an extra 500 pounds of storage.
When these elements combine, they allow the Explorer Platinum to rush past the competition - promising best-in-class trailering and dynamic all-terrain handling. This SUV proves ideal for every summer adventure.

The Big Blue Oval sits upon a foundation of pony-power and F-Series performance. Every year convertibles and pick-ups propel it to the top of the charts - earning acclaim from drivers and critics alike. The release of the 2017 Explorer, however, showcases an unexpected (but certainly not unwelcome) consumer shift.
According to the NWI Times, the cornerstone of Ford’s success now rests on all-terrain capability. The 2017 Explorer has earned a staggering 20.7% year-to-year increase, resulting in the brand’s best sales in 13 years. In May alone, approximately 23,000 units were sold. This shatters all previous records and emphasizes the transition from sedans to SUVs.
With this transition comes incredible profits for Ford. The NWI Times notes that its overall margins have increased by 2.2% from 2016, and this trend should continue throughout the rest of the year - with the new Explorer bolstering every quarter.
The Key West team recognizes the value of SUV performance. The 2017 Explorer - which pairs a 2.3L EcoBoost engine with Intelligent 4WD - allows drivers to experience every mile with power and precision. Class III Trailer technology delivers up to 5,000 pounds of off-road hauling; while AdvanceTrac Stability Control creates a seamless ride. This is the platform for adventurers, families, and everyone in between.

Sport utility fans, rejoice! The 2019 Ford Explorer has been revealed... and it promises exceptional performance for the Lower Mainland.
Auto World News reports that Ford has begun testing the 2019 Explorer prototype, sending the SUV to its beloved Michigan proving grounds. Through downtown streets it growled - delivering both a new powertrain and a fresh fascia. Among the most notable improvements were:
Extended Wheelbase - while no official specs have been released for the Explorer, critics note that this platform is longer than its predecessors, promising a more comfortable tri-row interior.
Aluminum Paneling - though heavily camouflaged, this platform’s use of high-strength aluminum was still visible to quick-fingered photographers. The Explorer will share a similar construction to the F-150, delivering a lighter, more nimble chassis.
Enlarged Grille - the front grille has been widened, creating a sportier front.
Engine Options - Ford has confirmed that it’s considering adopting a new powertrain for the Explorer, replacing its current naturally-aspirated motor with either a 2.3L four-cylinder or a 3.5L V6 EcoBoost. Based upon the SUV’s performance in Michigan, many critics believe it will be the latter.
What do you think of these new details? Will the 2019 Explorer prove impossible for you to resist? Share your thoughts with us today!
A demand for safety defines the highway experience - with drivers seeking to counter uncertain traffic patterns and unsteady terrains. Each mile brings a new challenge, and too often do sedans and hatchbacks fail to meet those challenges.
According to AutoMoBlog, the 2018 Explorer should deliver secure roadways - with Ford offering a variety of advanced features to North America. This utility platform will boast:
Pre-Collision Warnings - with on-board radar sensors scanning the surrounding environment and detecting obstacles. Real-time alerts will be given and, should drivers fail to promptly respond, automatic braking and speed reduction technologies will then be applied.
Traffic Monitoring - with a blind-spot system assessing passing cars to determine whether they pose a potential concern.
Lane Departures - with a frontal camera observing marker positions and warning drivers through a series of steering wheel vibrations if they stray too far from the path.
These features - when paired with cross-traffic alerts and automatic high-beams - will ensure safety on the highway. Ford has created an SUV that accommodates every road condition, helping to negate the chance of collision.

Across North America comes a convoy - with the world’s leading engineers revving their latest platforms to Manhattan. There they’ll claim space at the Jacob Javits Convention Center, launching a series of New York Auto Show debuts. Showings from Toyota, Chevrolet, and Dodge are expected.
Ford, however, isn’t content to wait for the Auto Show. Instead it’s offering drivers an early peek at its 2019 Explorer - taking to the streets of Colorado and proving (once again) why it dominates the SUV market.
According to OPP Trends, the 2019 Explorer was recently revealed. This platform - which boasts an elongated wheelbase and heightened roof-line - should appeal to a wide demographic, delivering a seven-passenger configuration and best-in-class cabin space. Though heavily camouflaged, its new body features lean side panels and a refined hood, suggesting a use of aluminum materials; and spy photos of the interior hint at a new nine-speed automatic transmission. This will ensure smooth handling on every road.
We’re certainly impressed.
The 2019 Explorer will make its official debut at the New York Auto Show - but, until then, drivers can take advantage of these exclusive images to study every angle.

In 2011 Ford introduced drivers to a refreshed Explorer - blending uni-body construction with streamlined A-pillars. The result was a sleeker, leaner SUV that could more efficiently compete with the expanding crossover market.
Now Ford seeks to once again reinvent its popular platform, with spy photos of a new Explorer revealed.
According to Motor Authority, the 2019 Explorer has been spotted. This platform - though heavily camouflaged - mirrors the sleek construction of its predecessor, delivering an elongated wheelbase and slimmer fenders; and a hint of aluminum paneling can be seen along the front, promising a lightframe weight (which should increase the overall MPG ratios and acceleration capabilities).
The most exciting change, however, is the inclusion of a new 9-speed automatic transmission. This will replace the current 6-speed and will provide drivers with more fluid responses, especially when paired with the available AWD. The 2019 Explorer should prove a surprisingly nimble SUV.
Though no official release date has been offered, this Ford model should arrive in 2018 (production should begin in the spring, with a tentative launch scheduled for the fall). Drivers won’t have to wait too long, therefore, to Go Further.
