No matter where you’re going, we can all agree that any road trip is better with fewer stops at gas stations. That’s why the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid is one of the best vehicles to have on any road trip, as it was just announced as having an EPA-estimated range of over 500 miles for rear-wheel drive models and of over 450 miles for all-wheel drive models.*
This incredible 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid range is made possible by the combination of an 18-gallon fuel tank and an EPA-estimated fuel economy of 27 mpg in the city, 29 mpg on the highway, and 28 mpg combined.*
“Explorer is the ultimate family adventure vehicle — and 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.”
To achieve such strong fuel economy numbers, the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid pairs an efficient 3.6-liter V6 engine with a 35-kilowatt electric-motor system incorporating an all-new, advanced 10-speed modular hybrid transmission.
As a result, the Ford Explorer Hybrid is not only extremely economical but also surprisingly potent: It puts out 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque, delivering enough might to tow up to 5,000 pounds — just as much as the previous-generation Explorer with the highly-rated, turbocharged 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine.
