2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid Exceeds 500 Miles on a Tank

By Justin Cupler | September 6th, 2019

When Ford launched the 2020 Explorer, this new crossover arrived with a new rear-wheel-drive platform and a slew of new engine options, including a hybrid variant. The Explorer Hybrid was an intriguing option for buyers, but Ford held vital details, including fuel economy, close to its chest. Today, Ford has unveiled this and more, showing the dominance of the latest hybrid crossover.

The 2020 Ford Explorer Limited Hybrid will boast fuel-economy ratings of 27 mpg city, 29 highway, and 28 combined with rear-wheel drive. Four-wheel-drive models will get 23 mpg city, 26 highway, and 25 combined. Combined with an 18-gallon fuel tank, the 2020 Explorer Limited Hybrid can travel up to 522 miles with rear-wheel drive or 468 miles with four-wheel drive.

Not only is the 318-horsepower 2020 Explorer Hybrid thrifty, but it is also a capable hauler that can tow up to 5,000 pounds with the Class III Tow Package, which matches the maximum capacity of the Explorer with the 3.5-liter EcoBoost engine and beats the Explorer Hybrid’s key competitor, the Highlander Hybrid, by 1,500 pounds.

The 2020 Explorer Limited Hybrid is not in the Garber Automall showroom serving the Orange Park, Jacksonville, and Fleming Island areas.
