Ford paid extra attention to designing the seats.
Ford made a big splash in the midsize SUV segment when it revealed the all-new 2020 Explorer, which now goes back to a rear-wheel-drive layout for the first time since 2010. Along with RWD, the new Explorer is also the most powerful in the model’s history with a new ST variant pumping out 400 horsepower. Still, this new Explorer has a pretty big task to complete: to dethrone the Kia Telluride as the best midsize, three-row SUV.
It won’t be an easy goal to accomplish but Ford has paid extra attention to the Explorer’s interior, giving it a dual-wall dashboard to help limit interior noise. The Explorer also comes with a “Mindful Mode,” which turns off all gauge cluster information other than speed and fuel to minimize distractions.

But as it turns out, the Explorer has yet another new feature meant to make the interior more comfortable. Mike Kolich, the supervisor of Ford’s global seating team, told Autoblog about the new seats in the Explorer, which will make the car more comfortable during long trips.
The Cars.com editorial team has historically had a (tail)bone to pick when it comes to the comfort of the seats in the Ford Explorer. But the design in the all-new 2020 model promises a seat that provides more cush for your tush.
