Ford is currently testing out the all-new Explorer, the model getting ready for a presuming official unveiling in 2018, possibly at the Detroit Auto Show, as a 2019 MY.
As we can depict from the spied photos below, the famous SUV seems to wear the current familiar design, but will come however with new styling bits, which will make it more appealing. Besides the new slight styling lines, the model will feature new mechanics, updated technology and freshly updated EcoBoost engines.
Speaking about new design lines and judging by the camouflaged areas, the 2019 Ford Explorer will likely receive new front fascia with updated hood, adding as well revised front bumper and fresh headlights. At the rear, the model will also come with fresh taillights connected to what seems to be a red bar on the trunk lid and so on.
Underneath the skin, the 2019 Explorer will stand on the company`s new D6 platform, meaning that it will make use of lot of aluminum and high-strength steel, resulting a much more lightweight structure with improved fuel efficiency and increase performance.
Performance wise, the new Explorer will drop the current 3.5-liter V6 naturally-aspirated engines in favor of much more reliable EcoBoost pots, the same one seen in the latest generation 2018 Ford Mustang. As for the muscle car`s high-performance ten-speed automatic transmission, we are not sure if the new Explorer will also be using it. What is 100 percent certain is that it will come with a front-wheel drive layout as standard and an optional all-wheel configuration as well.
