Range Rover vs. Explorer: Engine Options and Power

As in 2019, the Range Rover comes standard with a 3.0-Liter Supercharged V6 engine. This time around, it’s delivering even more power with 355 hp and 365 lb-ft of torque. The 2020 Ford Explorer also receives an improved engine, but its new 2.3-liter EcoBoost® I-4 still falls short with 300 hp and 310 lb-ft of torque. 

Both models offer engine upgrades, but the Ford has nothing comparable to the 577-hp Supercharged V8 that you can get in the Range Rover.

Range Rover vs. Explorer: Towing and Safety Features

The Range Rover comes standard with a 7,716-pound maximum towing capacity. The Ford Explorer only offers a maximum capacity of 5,000 pounds, and you’ll need to upgrade with available features and options in order to reach even that limit.

What separates the Range Rover vs. Ford Explorer on this front? Aside from the Land Rover SUV’s stronger engine, it offers a wealth of towing features that you simply can’t get in the Ford Explorer, including:

  • Speed Lowering System
  • Low-Traction Launch
  • Advanced Tow Assist
  • Terrain Response® with EV mode

Although the Explorer also offers its own Terrain Management System™, it doesn’t come standard. Both models offer parking assistance features, along with Hill Descent Control.

Although the Ford Explorer is offered with available all-wheel drive, only the Range Rover includes four-wheel drive standard.

Range Rover vs. Explorer: Interior

Are you still asking yourself, “Explorer or Range Rover?” If you’re not yet convinced in one direction or the other, a quick look at each model’s interior features should tell you everything you need to know:

Range Rover Interior Features

  • InControl® App integration
  • 13-speaker Meridian™ Sound System
  • Standard Heated front seats
  • 1st and 2nd-row sliding glass sunroof

  • SecuriCode™ Keyless Entry Keypad
  • 6-speaker audio system
