Caskinette Ford is more than thrilled with this exciting news!
IT has been announced and welcomed to the Ford family, the all-new 2020 Ford Explorer, which has been said to land in the public market this summer! Bringing more to the table, the Ford Explorer has undergone it’s biggest changes in the last decade!
With the changes that have been made, the new Explorer brings the heat to it’s 3rd-row family crossover rivals, especially to the Chevrolet Traverse. Keep reading to see how these two SUVs go head to head in all different areas.
#1 Engine and Towing
With the engine of a 2.3L “Eco-Boost” turbocharge four-cylinder engine, The new Ford Explorer overshoots the Chevrolet Traverse by a long shot when it comes to torque and also pulls ahead in horsepower as well.
#2 Cargo and Passenger Space
The Traverse doesn’t fall back from being one of the leading, most spacious vehicles for family travels. It has been hard to match both inside and out on the SUV and it’s closest competitors were the minivans and the Ford Expedition XLs, until now with the appearance of the new Ford Explorer. Still not as spacious, but the Explorer has come closer than any other competitor, with it’s three rows and its 18.2 cubic feet of cargo space.
#3 Safety Features
The new 2020 Ford Explorer is all about safety. There are five trim levels for the new Ford SUV which include base, XLT, Limited, ST, and Platinum. Co-Pilots 360 suite including forward collision warnings with pedestrian detection and automatic braking, lane-keeping assistance, blind-spot detection along with rear cross-traffic warnings, automatic high beams, and for the cherry on top….. a rear backup camera with a built-in lens washer ALL of these safety features come standard on all of the five models which include. Up here in the north country, this should be highly respected, especially during the winters. AS for the 2019 Chevrolet Traverse, drivers don’t get these sort of safety features until upper trim levels. Just for example, blind-spot and rear cross-traffic features don’t show up in the vehicle until the LT trim level and forward collision warning and automatic emergency braking being only available on the Premier trim level and standard on the High Country trim level. SO obviously, Ford is moving forward with making a safer family vehicle all around and the best part is that the new 2020 Explorer won’t have a large jump in price. With it’s arrival, consumers will only see the price increase only by a couple hundred dollars.
