2021 Ford Explorer | Regina
If there's one SUV that sums up the family-oriented mid-size crossover market, it's probably the Ford Explorer. Available in both six and seven-seat formats, it's a car that offers flexibility and power to go with Ford's reliable engineering. The latest 2021 Explorer model is available for sale at our Regina location and includes many attractive features for family drivers.
Changes - 2021 vs 2020
The Ford Explorer received a major overhaul in 2020, including the switch to rear-wheel drive as standard. As such, the changes for 2021 are relatively minor. Ford has reduced prices across the full range while adding features such as heated seats, larger wheels, or upgraded brake pads depending on the chosen trim.
The standard Explorer engine is a hefty 2.3L turbo model pushing out 300 horsepower and 310lb-ft of torque. Lower-level models pass this output through a ten-speed automatic transmission to either standard rear-wheel or optional all-wheel drive. Drivers looking for a little more power can trade up to the 3.0L twin-turbo V6, which pushes the ponies up to 365hp and the torque to 380lb-ft, or even the sports-tuned version which makes 400hp and 415lb-ft. The final option is a hybrid powertrain pairing a 3.3L V6 and an electric motor to produce a combined 318 horsepower, again with a choice between RWD and AWD.
As standard, the 2021 Ford Explorer is fitted with an 8" touchscreen to handle infotainment duties, alongside a 6.5" gauge cluster display for essential driving information. However, both can be upgraded depending on the trim level, to a 10.1" infotainment screen and a 12.3" all-digital display cluster. All versions of the Explorer feature Android Auto, Apple CarPlay, front-row USB ports, and a Wi-Fi hotspot capability. Higher trims add second-row USB ports and built-in navigation, while the standard six-speaker sound can be switch out for a premium Bang & Olufsen 14-speaker audio system.
The Explorer has earned the top five-star rating in crash tests by the NHTSA, along with a top score of 'Good' from the IIHS. The physical safety design is backed up by a generous suite of active systems, including:
- Automatic emergency braking.
- Blind-spot monitoring.
- Rear cross-traffic alerts.
- Lane-keeping assist.
