As one of the first models of the modern SUV era, the Ford Explorer has been one of the industry's most popular SUVs for nearly three decades. For the 2020 model year, Explorer begins its sixth generation with a complete redesign, including sleek aesthetic changes, more robust engines, and new standard and available features. If you're shopping for a versatile and accommodating family SUV near Millstadt or Columbia, IL, check out what this iconic Ford model has to offer. Here's a look at a few of the Explorer's most notable attributes.

  • More Power: The Explorer's previously optional turbocharged 2.3-liter EcoBoost engine is now standard. With 300 horsepower and 310 pound-feet of torque, the midsize SUV has no problem getting up to speed. When properly equipped, Explorer can tow up to 5,600 pounds.
