For the first time, Ford is offering a hybrid drivetrain in its Explorer SUV.
The first Explorer Hybrid is just one part of the new sixth-generation model that will also include a performance-focused ST model.
The new hybrid drivetrain combines a naturally aspirated 3.3-liter V6, a 10-speed automatic transmission and a 35-kilowatt electric motor with a 1.5-kilowatt-hour lithium-ion battery pack.
Total output of the Explorer Hybrid's drivetrain punches in at 318 horsepower and 322 pound-feet of torque.
Rear-wheel drive will be standard on the 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid with all-wheel-drive being available for an additional $2,195.
According to EPA estimates, the Explorer Hybrid with rear-wheel drive will return miles per gallon in the city and 29 mpg on the highway.
With an 18-gallon gas tank, the Explorer Hybrid features an EPA-estimated driving range of more than 500 miles.
Tow capacity for the Explorer Hybrid checks in at a healthy 5,000 pounds to better the 2019 Toyota Highlander Hybrid by 1,500.
Ford will only be offering the hybrid drivetrain on Limited versions of the Explorer.
The 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid begins at $52,280, not including $1,195 for destination.
