2020 Ford Explorer XLT Specs

Ford Explorer

The XLT is the true base model of those readily available through the regular channels. In addition to the features included on the base model, it adds a little more convenience with a 10-way power-adjustable driver’s seat and a four-way power-adjustable passenger seat. A 6.5-inch LCD screen is also added to the driver’s cluster, as are a pair of USB ports to keep your kids’ phones charged in the second row. Four-wheel-drive can be added to this model for a cost of $2,000.
