The Explorer is a range of SUVs produced by Ford Motor Company in March 1990 for the 1991 model year. It was the first four-door SUV produced by Ford, replacing the two-door Bronco II and since then Ford as a company can look back and be proud of the amazing 6 generations of the Explorer that have been produced. The aim behind the production of the Explorer wasn’t farfetched; as Ford needed a car that can compete against the Chevrolet S-10 Blazer and Jeep Cherokee mid-size sport-utility vehicles.

It became inevitable to replace the Ford Bronco II with a vehicle sized closer to its competitors, all in their effort to attract family buyers, a four-door version was developed alongside the two-door (launched the same month as the four-door S-10 Blazer). The second-generation Ford Explorer made its debut in late 1994 as a 1995 model which marks the debut of the 1997 Mercury Mountaineer, introduced in 1996 by Mercury and Ford Explorer Sport Trac in early 2000 as a mid-size pickup truck based on the five-door Explorer.
Although it looks much like the model it replaces, the Explorer is all new for 2020 and boasts much-improved ride and handling, interior features, and modern powertrains.
The Explorer ST has a sporty look and a powerful 400-hp engine embedded with top class driving dynamics. The Explorer Limited Hybrid SUV is specially engineered for big adventures to guaranty your safety. With a fully off-road capability, the Explorer Limited Hybrid SUV can tow 5,000 pounds.

The downside of Explorer series
One downside of the 2020 Ford Explorer, when compared to other vehicles in the same class, is poor fuel efficiency… Explorer has a fuel efficiency of 27 mpg on the highway; whereas other midsize SUVs have fuel efficiency in excess of 30 miles per gallon (mpg) and no drive like to spend more on fuel no matter how rich they are.
2020 Ford Explorer Interior
While the interior design may border on uninspired, the Explorer’s cabin is functional and comfortable—at least for those in the first two rows. Getting into the standard third row of seats is now easier thanks to a new mechanism that moves the second-row seat out of the way at the touch of a button. We managed to fit four carry-on suitcases behind the Ford’s third row, and we fit a total of 31 bags with both back rows folded flat.
