What engines come with the 2021 Explorer?

While we know that you are looking for something that is multi-functional, one of the major highlights of this SUV is the fact that you can choose from multiple different engines. A ten-speed automatic transmission is standard, as is rear-wheel drive. You can also opt for all-wheel drive throughout most of the lineup. The base engine is a turbocharged 2.3-liter 4-cylinder, which can produce 310 pound-feet of torque and 300 horsepower. You might also consider a 3.3-liter V6 with electric motors, which can output 318 horsepower and 322 lb-ft of torque. The upper trim levels will get you a twin-turbocharged 3.0-liter V6, which offers 365 horsepower and 380 pound-feet of torque. This same engine is back again with the ST trim, this time offering 400 horsepower and 415 pound-feet of torque.

What trims come with the Ford Explorer?

Power is important, but it can never fully take precedent over the comfort and technology that you are looking for in a modern vehicle. That is why we want to go over some of the standard and available features that you will be able to find throughout! Standard features include Apple CarPlay, Android Auto, a satellite radio, a powered tailgate, an 8-inch touchscreen, tri-zone automatic climate control, and Ford Co-Pilot360 driver aids. Another trim, the XLT, gets you heated front seats, keyless entry and ignition, a 6.5-inch driver information cluster, a leather-wrapped steering wheel, and dual 2nd-row USB ports. The highest trim, Platinum, comes in with diamond-stitched leather upholstery, a twin-panel moonroof, adaptive headlights, and wood interior trim.

What safety features are offered with the Ford Explorer?

The last thing we're discussing about the Explorer is what you can expect to find for safety. With this type of vehicle, you want to make sure that your passengers are kept secure. That's why every Explorer comes with Co-Pilot360, which includes blind-spot monitoring, rear cross-traffic alert, a rearview camera, automatic high beams, automatic emergency braking, and forward-collision warning. Some other available features include speed sign recognition, evasive steering assist, post-impact braking, and adaptive cruise control.
