2021 Ford Explorer Review Easton MD

If you're looking for a standard-sized SUV, you're probably comparing performance. This is especially true when it comes to mileage and power. The 2021 Ford Explorer has multiple powertrain options, available with different trims and offering different levels of performance based on what you desire from the midsize SUV.

2021 Ford Explorer SUV Trim Levels

While overall the Ford Explorer offers incredible features, power, and handling. It's worth taking a look at all of your available options. While fans of the explorer tend to lean towards the Platinum Explorer or the ST Explorer, we believe there is something special about each variation of the Explorer.


The XLT trim is a great option for Explorer buyers who might want just a little more than what the base offers but still at an affordable price. With this trim, you will get the option of having first-row heated seats, a terrain management system, and a twin-panel moonroof. Some standard features include automatic high beams, push-button start, and a lane-keeping system.

Limited - Hybrid

The Limited Explorer trim is the only hybrid vehicle in its class that can tow up to 5,000 lbs. That's enough to bring a small boat to the lake or a camper to your favorite campsite. However, the best part of this trim is its fuel efficiency. 27 miles per gallon is going to get you pretty far.


The Timberline is a brand new Ford Explorer trim that offers drivers unprecedented off-road capabilities. This trim features steel skid plates, increased ground clearance, upgraded suspension, and even a Torsen limited-slip differential. These incredible performance features are complemented by aggressive looks enhanced by unique red trim, red tow hooks, quad chrome exhaust tips, and more.


The Ford ST has a top speed of 143 mph, can go from zero to 60 in 5.6 seconds, and has a quarter mile time of 13.9 seconds. This trim comes with Intelligent 4WD and a leather interior. Standard on this model is a twelve-speaker B&O sound system by Bang & Olufsen. You'll even have second row captain's chairs with power-assist fold and E-Z Entry.

King Ranch

If you're looking for a luxury model, the King Ranch trim of the Explorer is perfect for you. This model has Del Rio leather seats, a powerful 3.0L engine, and multi-color ambient lighting. Other features you might love include a wireless charging pad, a heated steering wheel, remote start, and the twelve-speaker B&O sound system.


If the King Ranch isn't luxurious enough for you, the Platinum trim is. This model features tri-diamond perforated leather seating, the B&O sound system, and Active Park Assist 2.0. You'll also enjoy a 12.3-inch digital cluster, among many other incredible features.

2021 Explorer Safety Features

The 2021 Ford Explorer comes with several standard safety features, along with available optional features to provide an even higher level of safety. Features that are standard across all trims include the Ford CoPilot360 suite, AdvanceTrac with roll stability control, a belt-minder, knee airbags, a safety canopy system, LATCH, and an SOS post-crash alert system. Some of these aren't self-explanatory, so let's take a closer look at what they mean.

Explorer Selectable Drive Modes

The Explorer also has a terrain management system that is used for poor or off-road driving conditions and includes ABS and driveline traction control. This comes in seven different modes, including Normal, Trail, Deep Snow/Sand, Slippery, Sport, Tow/Haul, and Eco modes. You can use Eco mode on your average daily commute to help save fuel and eliminate unnecessary emissions. But, if you prefer the Explorer's standard acceleration and strength, Normal mode also works well for commuting. Sport mode is fun when you want to push the Explorer to its limits with speed and mobility. The other modes are self-explanatory.
