New Yorkers road-tripping to Washington, D.C. and back are looking at a 454-mile journey. Detroiters driving to Toronto and back are on the road for 466 miles. And Angelenos making the trip to and from Las Vegas cover just over 500 miles.

No matter the destination, they can all agree – any road trip is better with fewer gas station stops.

“Explorer is the ultimate family adventure vehicle – and fewer pit stops is one of the latest reasons why,” said Bill Gubing, Explorer chief engineer. “Explorer provides space for the whole family and their gear, it’s got great towing capability, and now it has range like no Explorer before.”

With an 18-gallon fuel tank, the all-new 2020 Explorer Limited Hybrid RWD has an EPA-estimated range of over 500 miles* per tank of gas, meaning potentially more time on the road and less time filling up. The 2020 Explorer Limited Hybrid equipped with four-wheel drive has an EPA-estimated range of over 450 miles.*

Rear-wheel- drive-equipped Explorer Limited Hybrid has an EPA-estimated rating of 27 mpg city /29 mpg highway/28 mpg combined, while a four-wheel-drive version has an EPA-estimated rating of 23 mpg city/26 mpg highway/25 mpg combined.

Explorer Limited Hybrid featuring a 3.3-liter hybrid engine and all-new 10-speed modular hybrid transmission offers no-compromise capability and can tow up to 5,000 pounds** – the same as a properly equipped 2019 Explorer with 3.5-liter EcoBoost® engine. When equipped with a Class III Tow Package, the all-new Explorer Limited Hybrid tows 1,500 pounds more than a 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid**.

Its no-compromise qualities also extend to the cargo area. Unlike most previous hybrid vehicles, Explorer Limited Hybrid features a specially designed liquid-cooled lithium-ion battery built into the chassis below the second-row seats to preserve the cargo*** and passenger space that helped make it such a popular vehicle with families.
