Ford Explorer
The Ford Explorer is a big deal for the Dearborn-based automaker. Since its introduction in 1991, this seminal sport utility has sold extremely well — almost 8 million units — establishing it as the best-selling SUV of all time. The new 2020 Explorer will be built on an all-new rear-wheel-drive flexible architecture designed to improve ride and handling as well as the vehicle’s overall capability. Through use of high-strength steel and other lightweight components, the new structure is 25 percent stronger while reducing weight by 200 pounds on average. Still recognizable as an Explorer, the new model looks sportier than it has in the past, thanks to a more sculpted body, sloping roofline and shorter overhangs at the front and rear.
