Behold the 2021 Ford Explorer -- a midsize SUV built with a brawny engine, reliable safety systems, and the newest tech features. Once you're ready to check it out in person, stop into Napleton Ford. We look forward to giving you a tour and explaining how you can take it home, whether temporarily or permanently, if you lease or finance with us.


We can't think of a better place to start our overview than with the components below the hood of the Explorer. Its standard 2.3L EcoBoost® 4-cylinder engine produces 300 horsepower and 310 lb.-ft. of torque. With all of this power under your belt, you can expect to get to the office and right back home in record time! You'll also be receiving a 27/29 MPG city/hwy1 fuel economy rating so you know you'll be passing up the pump a few times before stopping to refill your tank. While the Explorer comes standard with RWD, you can always upgrade to the available Intelligent 4WD system. This way, you're going to have the necessary traction to stay steady if you run into rain, ice, or snow. Plus, the 10-speed automatic transmission is ready to provide silky-smooth gear changes from the moment you leave your driveway.

What Safety Features Does the 2021 Ford Explorer Have?

Now, we have to turn our attention to the safety features found on the 2021 Explorer. A Rear View Camera2 is standard across every trim and will turn on each time you're reversing to help you in backing out of those pesky parking spots with confidence. You'll have the Lane-Keeping System2, which makes sure you stay centered within the lines, and if you begin to deviate without providing a turn signal, it will let you know. It's also prepared to correct steering and lead you back to the correct position if you don't happen to take action. Intelligent Adaptive Cruise Control2 allows you to maintain a safe distance between you and the car that's ahead of you in order to prevent any accidents. Lastly, count on the Auto High-Beam Headlamps to increase your visibility down those hazy roads. The feature will also return to low-beams if a driver is sensed from the opposite direction.


We can't wrap up without taking a look at the Ford Explorer's tech advancements. First, with the optional 14-speaker system from B&O3, you're going to be singing along to only concert-like decibels as you head to your final destination. From the standard 8-inch touchscreen in the center stack with Apple CarPlay®4 and Android Auto™5, you can access all of your favorite applications and other media each time you're on the go. Not just that, with optional Ford+Alexa it's easy to connect your device from home and do some online shopping or listen to your customized playlists. Last, but definitely not least, the available in-vehicle Wi-Fi6 Hotspot lets you utilize the internet on your smartphone without worrying about draining all of your mobile data.
