2020 Ford Explorer

 The new Explorer looks ready to go.
As there is almost no camouflage left on these prototypes. We can see pretty much everything.

And it does look quite nice. If not original. It basically looks like a sleeker, more modern version of the current design.
Nothing too modern here.

Engines should include all Turbo engines. 4 and 6 cylinders. As well as a plug-in hybrid, similar to the new Lincoln Aviator.

Here is the Aviator, which will share its structure with the 2020 Explorer (As well as the 2021 Mustang)

Aviator looks far better. The Explorer missed an opportunity.

There is a very obvious crease at the top of the C pillar behind the rear doors, as if Ford intends for a different color roof option.

Wondering if the switch to RWD will affect the space inside.

Aviator is $15K more and then the options and packages are much more pricey! You can buy a loaded up Explorer for a middle of the road equipped Aviator.

Ford sold almost 300,000 units last year, a healthy number given that this generation launched in 2011. So I can see why they decided to maintain the the same look, even if the new vechicle is fundamentally different, and probably much nicer, than the current offering.

Perhaps this redesign takes into account the demise of the FLEX and that's why it is lower and sleeker.

I wonder if that Aviator have a larger rear quarter side window than the Explorer or if that's just clever masking.

I'm surprised just how differentiated the two are from each other.. the Navigator and Expedition are much more similar, but still more different from each other than they were last generation. But the Explorer and Aviator even have different door cutouts and handle placement.. I'm impressed! And as for the question about the new RWD-based platform affecting the space inside, the current Taurus/Flex/Explorer are probably the least space-efficient FWD-based vehicles on the market, so I doubt the Explorer will get even tighter because of the RWD platform.
