More Information

Xenon lamps do not use in fog lights: constantly changing the configuration of the discharge violates the strictly calculated geometry of the light beam, and the headlight does not perform its direct function. For fog lights it is better to use only LED bulbs.

Ford Explorer Generations

Ford Explorer 6 Generation (2020, 2021)

With its 2020 redesign, the Explorer returns once again to a rear-wheel-drive-based platform. Its styling is similar to the previous generation, though the SUV is a bit bigger and has a longer wheelbase that helps create more cargo room. Power comes from a standard turbocharged 2.3-liter four-cylinder engine; a twin-turbo 3.0-liter V-6 is optional. The Explorer features Ford’s Terrain Management System, which has seven available modes in all-wheel-drive models. Enhanced standard safety tech includes Ford Co-Pilot360, a suite of active safety features. A performance-tuned Explorer ST and a hybrid version are available.

Ford Explorer 5 Generation (2011, 2012, 2013, 2014, 2015, 2016, 2017, 2018, 2019)

In a major change, Ford moved the Explorer from a truck-based, rear-wheel-drive body-on-frame platform to a car-based, unitized front-wheel-drive platform. Though still marketed as an SUV, it was now more accurately a crossover. The largest engine was a V-6, while turbocharged four-cylinders would become available later. Fuel mileage improved, as did on-road ride. The Explorer received revised front-end styling, improved technology interfaces, and a new engine in a 2016 refresh.

Ford Explorer 4 Generation (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010)

The 2006 Explorer grew about 4 inches longer and 1.5 inches wider on a new frame due to a subtle redesign. The optional V-8 got 53 more horsepower, paired with a new six-speed transmission. Tire pressure monitoring and electronic stability control became standard. The SUV now offered a power-folding third row, and the Explorer Sport Trac pickup returned for 2007.

Ford Explorer 3 Generation (2002, 2003, 2004, 2005)

For 2002, Ford put a larger, all-new body on a unique platform. Combined with a new four-wheel independent suspension, it allowed the Explorer to have a third-row option for the first time. Powertrain upgrades included a new V-8 and five-speed automatic transmission across the lineup. The Sport Trac and two-door Sport variants, which were still based on the previous generation’s engineering, were phased out during this generation, and the manual transmission was discontinued.
