Buying Advice

Last Updated: January 30, 2020

Strong, but Falling Demand: The redesigned Ford Explorer finished 2019 as one of the best-selling midsize SUVs. However, it was outsold by the class sales-leading Jeep Grand Cherokee by 30 percent. In addition, Explorer sales dipped by 28.5 percent last year compared to 2018.

High Prices: A base Explorer starts at $36,675, which is about $5,500 above the class average. Be careful when climbing trim levels, as a top tier model tips the scales at just over $58,000. The top trims for many competitors in the segment start below $50,000. 

Time to Buy: With the booming popularity of SUVs and crossovers, scoring a great deal on an Explorer may be difficult. The full redesign of the 2020 model year means many dealers will want to clear out Explorers from the previous generation. Make sure to check out used Explorers to save more money. If you’re set on the midsize Ford, check out this month’s Ford deals for all the best finance and lease offers. For a lower price, consider the Kia Sorento, the winner of our 2020 Best 3-Row SUV for the Money award, which starts around $10,000 below the Explorer.
