BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (CBS 42 Living Local) – The 2020 Ford Explorer is completely redesigned and updated. The vehicle is perfect for driving around town or across the country. 

“It’s the number one selling SUV of all time,” said Mitchell Watts, a manager at an Alabama Ford dealership.   He handpicked the Explorer car for his wife and three young children.   “It’s got the versatility that a lot of people need for going on vacations. You can move the seats around and still have enough room for the entire family.”  The front seats have an option to heat, cool, and massage. “It is luxury on wheels,” said Watts. 

The Explorer also comes with many updated and innovative safety features, all part of the Ford Copilot 360 Plus family of driving technologies. Watts says lane centering and adaptive cruise control are game-changing features during long road trips.   “It literally will steer me into the lane, keeps me in the middle of the lane, and drives itself. It will also slow down and speed up based on the car in front of me and can break. It will even parallel park and perpendicular park itself for you,” said Watts. 

The 2020 Explorer model has a brand new exterior and interior design. The front bumper is a bit more sculpted and masculine.   “Anybody could drive it- male or female,” Watts said.  Before your next vacation, give your family the comfort and safety of a 2020 Ford Explorer.  Visit your local Ford dealership today or click here for more information.
