2020 Ford Explorer spy shots and video

A prototype for Ford’s next-generation Explorer has been spotted again. The vehicle is expected on sale in 2019 as a 2020 model, and judging by the lack of camouflage gear the debut should take place very soon.

The last time the Explorer was redesigned was in 2011, when the popular SUV adopted car-like unibody construction and an inline-4 as the base powertrain. The 2020 model will follow a similar formula, though it looks to be growing in size.

The photos hint at evolutionary changes to the Explorer’s shape but the face takes on a more prominent look with the redesign. There’s still a big, blocky form for the body, plus space for three rows of seats. The latest shots show the vehicle in upmarket Platinum trim.
