1. Design

  • First Generation (1991-1994):
    • The debut Explorer was built on a truck platform, featuring a body-on-frame construction. It was available in both two-door and four-door configurations. The design was traditional, reflecting the boxy, rugged SUV look of the time.
  • Second Generation (1995-2001):
    • The second-gen models brought a rounder and more aerodynamic look. Though still retaining the body-on-frame construction, it introduced features like dual airbags and more modern amenities.
  • Third Generation (2002-2005):
    • This generation was larger than its predecessor and adopted a more refined design, emphasizing the Explorer’s transition from a rugged off-roader to a family-friendly SUV.
  • Fourth Generation (2006-2010):
    • The fourth iteration was built on a new frame, further refining the design with a three-bar chrome grille and more integrated headlights. The interior also saw a significant upgrade in terms of quality and features.
  • Fifth Generation (2011-2019):
    • A significant shift for the Explorer, this generation moved to a unibody construction, placing it on a car-based platform. The design became sleeker, with a more contemporary appearance and improved aerodynamics.
  • Sixth Generation (2020-Present as of last update):
    • The latest generation brings a rear-wheel-drive platform, with a design that is both athletic and modern. The prominent grille and more sculpted body lines highlight its evolution.
