At Folsom Lake Ford, we know that more drivers than ever are looking for green cars. Fortunately, you won’t have to sacrifice the rugged capability of a Ford when you go green. The Ford tean has big plans to electrify your favorite Ford SUV or truck while ensuring that it still delivers the kind of driving experience and utility you would expect.
The 2020 Ford Explorer Hybrid is one green model that’s been making headlines lately. This spacious SUV will be powered by an efficient 3.3-liter V6 engine and an electric motor. Its total output will be 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. This Ford SUV is no slouch on the highway but still has the power to tow some heavier cargo. We can’t wait to see this new vehicle in action for ourselves and we know that local drivers are going to have fun pushing it to the limits.
In order to build this new hybrid SUV, Ford engineers are making some big investments in American manufacturing. They’re spending fifty million dollars to supply a facility near its Chicago Assembly Plant with the equipment to handle the final assembly of the electrified 2020 Ford Explorer. This move also converts more than 400 temporary workers into full-time employees. The Ford Explorer Hybrid is creating jobs, lowering carbon footprints, and still delivering the utility it’s always been known for. It seems like this new investment is a true win-win.
