Get ready for the new 2019 Ford Explorer, one of America’s most iconic SUVs. Viewers got their first glimpse at next year’s model with some pictures at the Beijing auto show. We’ve learned more since then, and we’ll share what those details are. You’ll soon be able to find this reputable SUV at our Laredo, TX Ford dealership, Sames Ford. Until then, here’s a quick sneak peak at what to expect.

Although the tease at the Beijing show was just that, experts say that there are some noticeable changes to the 2019 Ford Explorer. For one, the beltline is not straight like the current model; it looks to be going higher moving toward the rear end. Another expectation could be that the roofline is sloped with a longer hood. The next-generation Ford Explorer now sits on a rear-wheel drive platform. The big news for 2019 is the expected arrival of a hybrid Ford Explorer.

The 2019 model is not expected to change much overall, with the standard engine being a 3.5-liter V6 that generates 290 horsepower and 255 lb-ft of torque. There is also a 2.0-liter four-cylinder engine that runs at 280 horsepower and an increased torque of 310 lb-ft of torque. From hauling to simply commuting, the Ford Explorer has the performance you need.

Until then, come by Sames Ford to check out the 2018 Ford Explorer. From its ample interior space with 21 cubic feet of cargo room to its extensive menu of tech amenities, including SYNC® infotainment, this Ford model truly fits the bill.
