A fun new ride

This SUV is quiet, comfortable, and FAST. It has a lot of extras but I mostly bought it for the smooth ride. The 20 mpg/ 27 mpg is an added benefit.

Overpriced piece of junk

I bought the new 2020 explorer as a family car. Worst mistake ever. Looks nice on the outside but drives horribly. The transmission jerks and lunges while driving. It is scary and completely unsafe. No sensors seem to work on my vehicle correctly. It blew the intercooler and never threw a code. The seats are cheap and extremely uncomfortable compared to the real leather I traded in. The car consistently has electronic issues. The dealerships will just reset the computer and send you on your way. The gas mileage is a complete lie! I get 18MPG my 6.0 V8 and my 6cyl. got better gas mileage the ride is loud and bumpy. The interior is very cheap.

The new EXPLORER is a great car. I had an EDGE and I used then previous EXPLORER. The big difference, the interior of the car. It´s outstanding! Nice, easy to handle and drive. The engine is also a very powerful one.

Loved the car but from day one had unresolvable electrical/sensor issues. Finally, after a 7 month battle, FORD bought it back. I have been a Ford owner for years, but given that this was a new release for 2020, I did not wish to chance getting another that could potentially have similar issues. I was not in the market for a smaller Ford vehicle so have taken a break and have opted for a Jeep Grand Cherokee Summit for now.

This is the second Platinum Explorer I have owned. It has every luxury feature you can imagine with a much better price than Acura or Lexus. Super comfortable with a speedy engine and great look!

This vehicle is impressive with minor problems like lack of USD ports and goes upscale when not necessary, ( does a gas gauge need changing) but I am happy to have it.

2020 Explorer has a lot to like!

It's brand new, so time will tell. Overall I love this vehicle. A V6 hybrid with lots of power and I feel very safe in it (all the safety technology). It looks great and has more features than I think I will ever use (but I'm glad they are included). If there is anything I don't really care for, it is the smaller windows all the way around on the vehicle. I get that Ford isn't the only one following this trend. I guess that means that I rely more on the cameras on the car, and the anti-collision / lane navigation / integrated safety technology on the vehicle. I'm okay with that. And This Explorer is way more advanced than my last one!
