2021 Ford Explorer Lineup Expands, Adds Value
Ford continues to tweak the popular 2021 Ford Explorer lineup to draw more midsize SUV shoppers to the model. Mid-year changes include lower-priced Explorer ST performance and Explorer Platinum luxury models, and a new Platinum Hybrid model.
These updates are in addition to changes announced earlier in the model year. Last summer, Ford announced a new XLT Sport Appearance Package for the 2021 Explorer. It pairs a gray grille and gray 20-inch wheels with interior tweaks such as Slate-colored two-tone seats with accent stitching.
Even more recently, Ford unveiled the 2021 Ford Explorer King Ranch, a western-themed luxury version of the SUV blending King Ranch design elements with the 3.0-liter turbocharged V6 engine from the Explorer Platinum.
