2019 Ford Explorer spied testing

2019 Ford Explorer spied testing

An all-new generation of the Ford Explorer has been spotted on test yet again, this time in Dearborn, Michigan. The heavy camouflage suggests that the 2019 model is still in its early development stage. 

Hardcore fans of the Explorer might think of it as a disguised version of the current three-row model but underneath, the prototype is testing the new D6 platform. The latter is set to be the basis of both Ford and Lincoln vehicles. 

Like all major manufactures, Ford is developing the D6 platform in a way that it’s flexible enough to underpin different categories of vehicles. It's said its flexibility will allow for both front and rear-drive vehicles to be based off of it. There will of course be all-wheel drive models as well. 

Rumors also suggest that the next-gen Explorer could go rear-wheel drive although these pictures do not show any sign of a rear axle. The Explorer is also set to get the latest EcoBoost engines, with a possible termination of the naturally aspirated V6. 

We expect to see the next-gen Explorer early in 2018 at the Detroit Motor Show.
