Well, the details are the same as we have shared, as nothing new has come out. But wait, we do have some fascinating news for you people, as Ford has finally brought Rear Wheel Drive with the new Explorer. It is good to see the revert from Front Wheel Drive, which decreases towing capacity and balancing. 2020 Explorer will have 600 lbs more towing capacity than the 2019 version, which is incredible.
Also, we will have a hybrid option is this SUV, making it the first Ford SUV to receive hybrid configuration in six years. We are expecting that 2020 Explorer would be available from June or July of 2019. However, an official release date is being awaited!
