Each model in existence needs its “champion trim,” usually the largest and most feature-laden one in the lineup. In the Ford Explorer’s family, the Platinum has long been the trim that customers are most likely to salivate over, and with good reason – no matter how you look at it, it’s one of the best in the business. Featuring premium luxury, stellar tech innovation, and a wealth of strength, there’s no topping what the 2020 Explorer Platinum can bring to the table. Join Sherwood Ford below as we tell you more about it!

Besides what we’ve mentioned, there’s a lot more to adore about the 2020 Explorer Platinum. Check out more of what it can do below!
The 2020 Ford Explorer Platinum is driven by a 3.0-litre EcoBoost® four-cylinder engine, able to generate 385 horsepower and 390 pound-feet of torque. You’ll also have a 10-speed automatic transmission through which this power is harnessed, and plenty of handling assistance features like Hill Descent Control and Intelligent Four-Wheel Drive. All this is to say that no matter where you want to go, the Explorer Platinum can take you there, no questions asked.
By purchasing the Ford Explorer’s Platinum Edition, you’ll be treated to the line’s standard Premium Technology Package. This includes Multicontour Seats with Active Motion®, a fully capacitive portrait-orientated touchscreen (complete with pinch-to-zoom functionality,) and a 980-watt B&O™ premium sound system. Add that to its existing infotainment capabilities, and you can understand what makes the Explorer Platinum so innovative for 2020.
With seating for up to seven passengers and up to 87.8 cubic feet of cargo space, the Ford Explorer Platinum is one of 2020’s roomiest SUVs. But it’s also a luxurious piece of machinery, characterized by its ambient lighting, heated steering wheel, and leather-bound seats that can keep you rolling forward with comfort in tow. Plus, wherever you are, proximity to the outside world is well within reach just by looking up – there, you’ll find a large dual-pane sunroof, bringing the beauty of Alberta to your cabin.
