2020 Ford Explorer Trims & Specs

The Ford Explorer is available in a variety of five different trims, each with its own purpose. All models feature a 10-speed automatic gearbox, with the base, XLT, and Limited models sending power from a turbocharged four-pot to the rear wheels as standard. The ST and Platinum models use a turbocharged V6 that distributes power to all four corners. Each model has its own specific niche, with the base version intended to be a company car due to its fleet-only availability, the XLT marketed as the real base model, and the Limited providing more amenities and a fine balance of features. The ST is a true performance SUV and caters to those who want a vehicle to suit all their needs, while the Platinum model is the most expensive. Loaded with numerous standard features and much more leather throughout the cabin, this model is the one to buy if you want the most luxury possible from the Blue Oval seven-seater.
