2020 Ford Explorer

This thread can serve as the forum to discuss the new Explorer, that is coming soon.


Here some pics of the prototipes heavily camouflaged:

Some notes about the pics:


-The body looks completly different from the Aviator.
-The Explorer have a hard line along the sides that run from front to rear and upside.. the opposite direction than in the Aviator.
-The rear hatch looks less vertical than in the current gen.
-The traditional Explorer black A and D pillar will continue in the next Gen model.
-The "clam shell" front end is gone. Now the car have a traditional hood.

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer

Roof line does look similar to the Aviator though.


Grille through the camo looks very similar to the one now which isn't a bad thing could be a nice evolution.

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer

Finally the real deal in camo! It definitely has its own unique sheetmetal as we expected. Notice how straight and sharp the A pillar front door frame is, where as the Aviator is one sweeping arch. The Explorer will continue to have a blacked out A pillar, with it being more integrated now.

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer

Is that the Aviator or the Nautilus?

Nautilus you can tell from the headlights and short hood.

Not a fan. Too many dots. And they're all the same colour.

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer

I hope the Aviator keeps the rear windshield wiper hidden under a spoiler a la Land Rover just to distinguish it more from this. This is shaping up nicely though.

Re: 2020 Ford Explorer

Why does no one make lift-able hatch glass any more? I loved being able to just open the glass on my old Mazda Tribute instead of the whole hatch door. Now I have a truck so i dont really care lol whatever, but still. Is it a regulation or something?

The GM SUVs offer this too but it's hidden I wasn't aware of it and neither were my sister and her husband and they have a Suburban and didn't know theirs opened either.
