interior looks pretty good to me. Also, the pic of the exterior looks better then the previous one we had seen. It appears that this is the platinum model. Also notice it has a digital gauge cluster.

That interior...looks..........odd.

That is the Platinum and I don't see the vertical Sync4 screen so I'm concerned about that.  2020 Explorer was suppose to get it.  Damn!  Maybe it's only in the PHEV, but that would be a waste.  I know the Mach-E is getting a larger version.

Otherwise I really like it, glad to see the Lincoln sourced full LCD IP. 

I would certainly consider that as my Lincoln replacement, assuming Aviator pricing is out of step with what I want to spend.  That grille is starting to wear out it's welcome however, haha.

It looks like a GM interior if you ask me.

 

Maybe the vertical screen is a package option even on Platinum?

Looks more Honda than GM to me.  But I like it.

I think Borg was right and we'll only see the vertical screen on the hybrid model.

They Ford-a-fied the Aviator interior.  That black monstrosity in the center stack looks terrible.

Doesn't look bad-I think the biggest reason it might look like crap is that it doesn't have final trim on it. I'm pretty sure the vents won't be grey plastic and it looks like its missing a trim pieces.

Yeah, that would help I'm sure.

If you don't like that interior, you really won't care for the cheaper versions.  I really like it personally.

I think the advantage is you can have both the normal sync 3 screen (which I assume would have hybrid information as well) AND carplay/android auto displayed at the same time.

The problem is that the US is not suppose to get the PHEV Explorer, only the export markets.

The vertical display was also suppose to go into the next F-150 and so-on so maybe it's coming later, but that's not the info I had.  My interest in Explorer is heavily tied to that Sync4 screen being available which offered a split-screen mode for CarPlay/Android Auto.  The weirdness of the pocket design under the display suggests they are planning for it, but I just assume that's exactly where they want the wireless charging pad to be.

I like the interior, but it doesn’t seem like this is a luxury interior. This looks at home on an xlt. Maybe it’s because this style of interior seems to be popular on every compact car out there now but it just doesn’t seem that luxurious. 

Not to mention that the screen looks tiny being sandwiched between the air vents.

Anyone notice that explorer had a burnt out break light? 😛

Is that a full LCD gauge cluster?

Maybe they're using the turn signal?

The signals are amber bulbs, those C-shapes are just the running lights.  

This is not the XLT interior, this is the Platinum, the best interior you can get on Explorer.

Vertical display like the 2019 Kuga in China?

No, not like that Kuga, must be an aftermarket job.

Explorer is going to be announced at the Detroit show btw, as if there were any doubts at this point.

It's not aftermarket. Kuga is the first Ford worldwide to receive the 10" vertical screen. Ford China made a big deal about it being the first in the world to have this feature that will roll out in other Ford regions. The 10" screen is standard on their version of SEL and Titanium. Their version of SE still has the 8" horizontal screen.

Does this conflict with the announcement that all future crossovers and SUV's would get some form of electrification? Or is the Explorer only going to be available as a hybrid?

Oh Wow, I didn't even know this!  The UI looks like garbage though.

Explorer is also getting a 3.3L V6 HEV for the US market.

Not all utilities are getting HEVs however, that includes the CX430 (Maverick).

Yes, I think the 10" vertical screen and whatever version of SYNC the Chinese Kuga is running will be rolled out to the US next year. Obviously on all new models, it will be better integrated... the Kuga situation is weird because Ford is really desperate to stop the sales free fall in China so they rushed this out to market with an retrofit.

It's suppose to be Sync4, which is unreleased right now.

This article has an interior pic of the 2020 Explorer testing with the large vertical screen but this is from August last year. I'm hoping for at least one of the trim to offer this infotainment screen, it looks very impressive.
