Range Rover vs. Explorer: Performance

The 2020 Ford Explorer comes standard with a 2.3-liter EcoBoost® engine that puts out 300 hp. Although the Range Rover is available with a variety of powertrain options, the 2020 model includes a superior engine, standard. Without upgrades, you’ll receive a 3.0L Supercharged V6 gas engine with 355 hp. Although the Ford Explorer also offers engine upgrades, our 2019 comparison reveals that the Range Rover upgrades are more powerful.

Crofton and Severna Park drivers might expect the more powerful Range Rover to fall short in terms of fuel economy. However, with an EPA-estimated 17 mpg city and 23 mpg highway, the Land Rover SUV actually has a slight edge! The Explorer gets around 16 mpg city and 22 mpg highway with its base engine.

Range Rover vs. Explorer: Capability and Safety

On the thoroughly modern Range Rover, capability and safety go hand-in-hand with great performance! Here’s what you should keep in mind:

  • If you need to tow heavy cargo, you can count on the Range Rover to keep you moving forward. It’s 7,716-pound maximum towing capacity earns it an easy win against the Ford Explorer. The latter can only tow 5,000 pounds, and even then, you’ll need to add options and upgrades in order to reach this maximum.
  • The 2020 Range Rover also includes a superior selection of standard towing features! You’ll receive:
    • Speed Lowering System
    • Low-Traction Launch
    • Advanced Tow Assist
    • Hill Descent Control
    • Terrain Response® with EV mode
    • Automated emergency braking
    • Front/rear parking aids
    • Lane departure warning
    • And more!
  • Although the Ford Explorer also offers Hill Descent Control and a Terrain Management System™, the latter is only available with optional AWD.

Of course, in the world of luxury SUVs, what’s on the inside is as least as important as what’s under the hood! Which model has more for your friends and family to enjoy: Explorer or Range Rover?
