If you’re looking for a vehicle that will get you to your off-grid campsite as easily as it will get you across town for a soccer game, the 2021 Ford Explorer ticks all your boxes!
Our team at Cabot Ford is impressed with the rugged versatility of the Explorer. Always a favorite, the Explorer has a comfortable and spacious interior, is power personified, and builds driver confidence with innovative safety features.
Comfort & Space
No matter where you’re headed, you and all your passengers should expect to be comfortable. The 2021 Ford Explorer has elbow and knee room in abundance. With seating for up to seven, the Explorer is engineered for the family on the go.
We know that the folks in the back seats often feel left out of luxurious amenities, but not in our King Ranch Explorer. The driver and front-seat passenger are covered with heated and ventilated front captain’s chairs and 10-way power options that include power lumbar and power recline for the ultimate in customization.
The second-row seats feature power-folding and heated seats with armrests and a tip-and-slide easy lever, making accessing the third row a breeze. A 60/40 PowerFold third-row seat with power recline and power-folding head restraints means you don’t have to feel guilty for putting grownups in the back. In the King Ranch, luxury abounds!
When the third row isn’t necessary, fold it almost entirely flat for extra storage. Consider the available Cargo Management System, which provides extra pockets and a storage area underneath the floor for all those smaller items that tumble around. An added plus is the reversible load floor with plastic bedding - it’s perfect for those times your favorite furry friend needs to tag along!
Don’t struggle with packing or unpacking, either. Ask about the available Hands-Free Foot-Activated Liftgate. As long as you have your keyfob close by, you can kick your foot under the rear bumper and activate the liftgate. It doesn’t sound like much, but when your hands are full and you have a thousand things on your mind, it’s an absolute convenience.
Power & Versatility
Families cannot be pigeonholed! Wherever you want to go, Ford can take you there. You need a vehicle that provides the flexibility of a sophisticated night on the town and a camping trip out in the wild! The Explorer has what it takes.
You’ll notice a difference right away in our 10-speed transmission that makes smooth and easy transmissions in upshifts and downshifts. There is no comparison to a 6-speed for enhanced overall performance.
Match your lifestyle to one of our four powerful engines, each with outstanding capabilities. For additional traction, choose the available Intelligent 4WD with our Terrain Management System, which provides seven selectable drive modes that increase your traction and maneuverability, no matter where you roam. It’s easily accessible through a single easy-to-use dial in the center console; you can choose between Normal, Trail, Deep Snow/Sand, Slippery, Sport, Tow/Haul, and Eco modes.
At Ford, your safety has always been our priority. We’re proud that the 2021 Ford Explorer was awarded a 2021 IIHS Top Safety Pick+. Standard and available driver-assist features that build your confidence behind the wheel are an essential part of the safety features available across most Ford models.
It’s essential to ask your sales team member which of these features are standard on the vehicle in which you’re most interested. Safety features include:
Blind Spot Information System with Cross-Traffic Alert. If a vehicle enters your blind spot, our system alerts you by illuminating a small light in the corresponding side-view mirror.
Cross-Traffic Alert. Sensors on either side of the vehicle’s rear bumper scan for traffic movement when you’re in reverse. The system alerts you to any traffic movement, providing another set of “eyes” when you’re trying to back out of a busy parking lot.
Pre-Collision Assist with Automatic Emergency Braking. Traffic often comes to sudden stops and unpredictable slowdowns. Our system scans the road ahead and alerts you to slow your rate of speed if you’re traveling too fast for the traffic ahead. If you don’t slow down in time to avoid an accident, the system activates Automatic Emergency Braking to mitigate frontal collisions.
Auto High-Beam Headlamps. These headlamps detect ambient light. Our system activates high or low beams as necessary. You’ll never blind oncoming traffic again, and you’ll always have the optimal light for the road ahead.
At Cabot Ford, we understand the rugged versatility you’re looking for in a Ford. The 2021 Ford Explorer is one of the most versatile vehicles on the road today.
Come see for yourself. Ask all your questions. Take a test drive. You’ll be impressed with the luxury, space, technologies, and safety provided in the new 2021 model Explorer. We just keep getting better!
