The Ford Explorer America is a concept SUV which first appeared at the 2008 Detroit Motor Show. The Explorer America concept builds on the groundwork's laid by the production Ford Explorer which has been around since the early 1990's.

The styling of the Explorer America is far more modern than its predecessors, and under the skin is a more advanced and economical drivetrain which offers 20 - 30 percent fuel savings depending on engine choice. The Explorer America concept would be available with either a 4 cylinder 2 litre engine with EcoBoost technology delivering 275 hp and 280 lb-ft of torque or, as a premium engine, a 3.5 litre V-6 delivering about 340 hp. To further improve fuel economy electric power assisted steering (EPAS) decreases fuel consumption by around 5 percent.

The chassis of the Explorer America concept is also upgraded, changing from a heavy, dated body-on-frame construction to a lighter and more agile monocoque design.

Inside the Ford Explorer America concept several handy features can be found, including: single-touch stackable, sliding seats that allow for convenient access to the second row; a work table with seats can be deployed from the tailgate; and a three-dimensional compass and navigation unit with a topographical map built right into the instrument panel. Access to the Ford Explorer America concept is through conventional front doors and sliding rear passenger doors.

While the 2008 Ford Explorer America is just a concept for the moment it is expected that the replacement for the current Ford Explorer might borrow several features and styling cues from the America concept.
