DETROIT (WXYZ) — Ford Motor Company has unveiled its all-new Explorer SUV, and the announcement comes just days ahead of the annual North American International Auto Show in Detroit.
Bill Ford, executive chairman of Ford Motor Company and great-grandson of Henry Ford, welcomed Ford employees, government officials, media and the public to the reveal event at Detroit's Ford Field on Wednesday.
The 2020 Explorer features Ford's broadest model lineup ever, and was redesigned from the ground up. It's being described as a "lighter, leaner and stronger" model SUV, while also boasting a more powerful and efficient EcoBoost engine with new smart technology, according to a media release from the company.
“Explorer drivers told us what they want – more capability, more power, more space,” said Hau Thai-Tang, Ford’s head of product development and purchasing. “They want more technology, not just for the driver, but for the whole family. And they want all of it with a beautifully sporty exterior. This new Explorer gives them all of that, and more, helping make every journey more enjoyable.”
