Ford will reveal its next-generation 2016 Explorer mid-size SUV at the Los Angeles Auto Show in November, the automaker has announced.

Ford will unveil the 2016-MY Explorer, which will go on sale next year in North America, to the media on Nov. 19. The 2016 Explorer will reach showrooms with a new look, added capability and additional driver-assist technology, according to Ford.

Ford has high hopes for the vehicle as a global offering. Since 2008, global demand for SUVs has grown 88 percent and now comprise 19 percent of the global vehicle market, according to Ford, citing IHS Automotive research.

Ford is also redesigning its Edge mid-size SUV for the 2015 model-year with plans to sell the vehicle in more than 100 global markets. The 2015 Edge will be sold in Europe for the first time, following Ford's introduction of the EcoSport SUV earlier this year. Ford has been selling the Edge in China since January of 2011. Ford began selling the Explorer, Kuga, and EcoSport in China since 2013.
