2019 Ford Explorer Concept Reveal News
The Explorer is the original crossover and was once the best-selling in the world. However, times have changed and the car is no longer at the top of the lists. However, it remains one of the best deals on the market that has a very good combination of performance, space and affordability. The problem here is that the current version is based on a platform more than ten years old. For this reason, many have suggested that the next 2019 Ford Explorer would be a completely new car. However, these are just rumors at this point and it remains to be seen what Ford will do.
The new 2019 Ford Explorer is underway. Best of all, the new spy photos give us a glimpse of the premium SUV. Will the 2019 model have a complete overhaul? It’s possible, even if from the appearance of the prototype it seems that any update of style can be smaller. That would make sense since the 2019 Ford Explorer has just received exterior revisions for the model year, including a new look for the front and rear fairings. The 2018 model also has a new grille, fog lamp set, five new wheel models and four new exterior paint colors.
Inside the cabin, the 2019 Ford Explorer adds new security technologies; 4G LTE optional with Wi-Fi hotspot; remote start; Block and unlock with the FordPass app and more. Under the hood, the 2018 Ford Explorer maintains its three powertrain options without upgrades. Does this mean that we can expect updates for the 2019 model year instead? This is possible especially because the 2019 Ford Explorer is expected to be one of the first Ford models to use a next generation platform, called D6.
Because the 2019 Ford Explorer will remain a front-wheel drive vehicle, it means it will not be able to accommodate a V8 engine or larger under the hood. On top of that, the CD4 platform is a bit restrictive in this regard. We hope the old naturally aspirated 3.5 and 3.7 liter V6 engines will stop working. The online 2.3L EcoBoost will likely remain as the basic offering. Higher in the range, an atmospheric V6 is unlikely. Instead, we can see the slightly larger 2.7-liter Ford V6 that can deliver 325 horsepower and 350 lb-ft of torque. This is quite similar to the old naturally aspirated V6 engines. The high-end model should also receive a smaller 3-liter EcoBoost with up to 400 horsepower. As before, the high-end engine will only be available on Platinum and Sports models. This should only be available with all-wheel drive and only with an automatic. So far, it is not yet clear what gearbox the car will offer. Despite this, he could be one of the first to receive the new Ford 9-speed automatic.
Rumor has it that Ford has tested its new 2019 Ford Explorer on American highways. UU
