The future of backroad performance is revving ever closer - with Ford teasing the release of its 2020 Explorer. This platform (which is currently scheduled for a springtime production next year) was recently spotted on the highways of Beijing, roaring toward the annual Auto Show; and, while it remained fully camouflaged, critics were able to discern a few exciting details.

Are you ready for a new crossover experience?

According to Motor One, Ford allowed crowds at the Beijing Auto Show to take a peek at its 2020 Explorer. Though the fascia was clad in vinyl (and the interior was shrouded), a few clever-eyed critics were able to decipher some key features. The chassis shares the same underpinnings as the new Lincoln Navigator, boasting a modular CD6 on-frame construction that promises an athletic stance. The rear-wheel-drivetrain will promote superior traction, utilizing both a 10-speed automatic transmission and oversized axles; while the LED headlamps have been lengthened in the front to ensure a larger beam path. The grille also appears widened, with a slotted tri-bar design anchoring its center.

The 2020 Explorer - which is rumored to deliver up to 400 HP, courtesy of the anticipated 3.0L turbocharged V6 - should prove a perfect addition to the Seattle backroads, promising rugged style and fierce performance with every rev.
