The 2020 Ford Explorer is a capable SUV with plenty to offer Peoria and Scottsdale drivers, but how well does it compare against a Land Rover? Although we know plenty of people who’ve wondered whether the Explorer or Range Rover is right for them, the truth is that our model stands head and shoulders above this challenger. Find out where the 2020 Range Rover comes out ahead by reading on!
EPA-Estimated Fuel Economy
Maximum Towing Capacity
The 2020 Ford Explorer starts with a 300-hp 2.3-Liter EcoBoost® Engine, offering 310 lb-ft of torque. Although these numbers are impressive, the Range Rover features an even more capable 3.0-liter Supercharged V6. With the latter, you’ll enjoy 340 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque, along with some impressive fuel economy numbers.
Interested in higher-end models? The Ford Explorer does offer a more powerful 365-hp upgrade, but the Range Rover offers a whole suite of engines for you to choose from. At the top of the lineup, we find a 577-hp Supercharged V8 that the Ford simply can’t compete with.
What if you’d like to be able to tow heavy cargo? Although you might expect a Ford vehicle to put up particularly strong numbers, the Ford Explorer can only tow up to 5,000 pounds. What’s more, you’ll need to upgrade with available all-wheel drive, and other towing features, in order to reach that maximum.
The 2020 Range Rover comes standard with four-wheel drive, a system which offers superior capability both on and off-road. If you decide you’d like to hook up a trailer, you’ll have plenty of options: the Range Rover towing capacity tops out at 7,716 pounds this year.
Both the Land Rover SUV and the Ford SUV help to keep you safe with features like Hill Descent Control, and where the Explorer offers a Terrain Management System™, the Range Rover offers its own Terrain Response® with EV mode. Both models are available with next-generation driver assistance features, but only the Range Rover includes a Speed Lowering System, Low-Traction Launch, and Advanced Tow Assist as standard.
If you’re going to choose an SUV for your Phoenix adventures, you ought to choose a model that can satisfy all your friends and family members. For that task, performance alone probably won’t be enough!
