Model Highlights

Side-Wind Stabilization

Side-wind stabilization, standard on all series, can help counteract heavy wind conditions. This feature helps to stabilize the vehicle in situations where you are likely to encounter heavy gusts of wind. The system keeps you from having to fight the wind and put in extra effort when overtaking large trucks, crossing a bridge or simply driving on the open road.

Great Performance With the Looks to Match

The first thing you'll notice about the 2021 Explorer is its dynamic design, including signature LED headlamps and other strong exterior details. The interior is also crafted with an array of defining attributes including available Tri-Diamond perforated leather seating surfaces on the Platinum, an available hexagon carbon-fiber-lined dash on the ST and a precision-engineered center console and rotary gear shift dial throughout the lineup.

Active Park Assist 2.0

Available Active Park Assist 2.0 makes it easy to nail an impressive park, time after time - even in tight parallel or perpendicular spots. With the push of a button, it will detect an appropriate parking spot and let you know when to stop and put the car in neutral. Once you're there, all you have to do is hold the Active Park Assist button for the duration of the park and the system does the rest. * This feature also offers park out assist with side-sensing capability so you can confidently navigate out of a spot when someone's parked too close to you.*

*Driver-assist features are supplemental and do not replace the driver's attention, judgment and need to control the vehicle.

Adventure Awaits

Explorer helps you make the most of your next big adventure with a rear-wheel-drive platform and your choice of four powerful engines. For additional traction there's available Intelligent 4WD with Terrain Management System and seven selectable drive modes. And with the ability to tow a maximum of 5,600 lbs.,* you won't be slowed down, not even with a hefty camper in tow.
