No matter where you're traveling, having fewer stops at gas stations along the way is always a plus. Ford's newest hybrid—the first hybrid offered from the brand in over six years—blends style and capability to deliver an efficient vehicle with a long range that outmatches any vehicle that precedes it. The 2020 Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid is the first Explorer of its kind, giving fans the same SUV they love with the added luxuries of a hybrid vehicle.        

 

The Explorer Limited Hybrid offers an 18-gallon fuel tank that delivers an EPA-estimated range of over 500 miles per tank of gas. When equipped with four-wheel drive, the Explorer has an EPA-estimated range of over 450 miles.

 

"Explorer is the ultimate family adventure vehicleand fewer pit stops is one of the latest reasons why," said Bill Gubing, Explorer chief engineer. "Explorer provides space for the whole family and their gear, it's got great towing capability, and now it has range like no Explorer before."

 

A 3.3-liter V6 engine and an all-new 10-speed hybrid automatic transmission power the Explorer Limited Hybrid, giving the vehicle the capability to tow up to 5,000 pounds. With the Class III Tow Package, the Explorer can tow 1,500 pounds more than a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid.

 

The electric motor can power the Limited Hybrid 3 miles in electric-only mode and is found between the engine and torque converter. Second-row seating and cargo space are preserved thanks to a specially designed liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery that's built into the chassis near the rear of the vehicle.

 

Each trim level features a different grille that adds a unique style to the exterior. All of the grilles start with a black mesh, and each upgrade adds more chrome. The Limited Hybrid has a wider stance with a sloping roofline, giving it a sportier profile. A sleek design is achieved with passive entry on the door handles, and standard LED headlights illuminate the front.

 

Standard Co-Pilot360 offers several driver assistance features, including blind-spot monitoring, lane keep systems, pre-collision alert with automatic emergency braking, and a rear camera.  

 

The 2020 Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid has an MSRP starting at $52,280.
